At this time, Toyota is currently making waves and innovating new ways to make their brand stand out and also improve on the aesthetic offerings on their vehicles. Today, we have the 2019 Toyota Avalon - reportedly the first Toyota to ever come with Apple CarPlay and adaptive suspension system.

Unveiled at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show, the new Avalon does seem like it borrowed design elements from the 2018 Toyota Camry. However, it is now sportier than its predecessors, a bit shorter but now much more 'techy.'
Toyota decided to test out its new technologies starting with the 2018 Camry and now the 2019 Avalon - a rebranded Entune 3.0 Plus infotainment system, 9-inch capacitive touchscreen, a slew of smartphone connection apps and GPS SatNav. Like I mentioned earlier, Apple CarPlay is now standard, though Android Auto is missing.
Wireless smartphone charger and five USB ports, WiFi connection also included. Some other tech features are the adaptive LED cornering lamps and sequential rear turn signals; new safety technologies including a rear cross-traffic emergency braking system, a panoramic parking camera with an alert function, and something known as "intelligent clearance sonar" that Toyota didn't really elaborate on.
These are all options on top of the expansive standard array of safety tech and driver aids that includes full-speed adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning with automatic braking and pedestrian detection, lane-keeping assist, and blind-spot and rear cross-traffic warning systems - AutoBlog
The Powertrain is top shot for a sedan, just as expected, although not much information is given at this time but it is reportedly a 3.5-litre V6 engine. Price is starting at $33,500
