2018 Toyota Avalon

The upcoming 2019 Toyota Avalon will make its official debut at the Detroit Auto Show later this month and the automaker took some time to tease a new feature on the fifth-gen sedan – sequential turn signals. Toyota took to Twitter to release a five-second video of the Avalon’s taillights in action.

While sequential turn signals aren’t exactly new – the Ford Mustang and the Audi A4 both have them – it does show Toyota’s efforts to add something new to the sedan. Earlier last month, Toyota released a teaser image of the 2019 Avalon’s front end, revealing the sedan’s interesting light design and enormous grille.

Besides the two uninformative images, there isn’t a lot of information that’s available on the upcoming Avalon. We expect the full-size sedan to sit on the Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) platform, which is the same architecture that’s found on the 2018 Toyota Camry. The fifth-gen Avalon, though, will be the latest entry in the full-size sedan segment to get a major redesign since the Nissan Maxima, injecting some life into the aging segment.
