Toyota is quite famous both at home and abroad. The most luxurious sedans are the 2023 Toyota Camry and 2023 Avalon, and we’ll talk about the latter.
Until now, this latest generation status model was only available in North America, to be precise, in the United States.
Now, the company is talking about the fact that it’s time to sell a new version of the Avalon sedan outside the United States.
The 2023 Toyota Avalon is available in Admiral Blue, Celestial Silver Metallic, Harbor Grey Metallic, Midnight Black, and Alfa White color.
According to various sources, they want to sell the updated 2023 Toyota Avalon in the Chinese market and in the European market.
Another interesting point is that it will be sold in an updated version, just like for the United States. Previously, for Europe and the United States, models with different designs were produced under the same name.
Not to say that the designs differ significantly, but the characteristics, build quality and other infill elements are different.
The official premiere of the updated Toyota Avalon sedan took place in China last week. If you believe statistics, then in the Middle Kingdom this model is in great demand.
During 2021, 117,000 units of this model were sold in China. At that time, Chinese buyers were offered locally assembled cars.
Keep in mind that the current fifth-generation Toyota Avalon sedan debuted in the United States in 2018. It’s based on the same GA-K platform as the Camry sedan. For China, the model was presented in 2019.
The new generation 2023 Toyota Avalon receives a fresh large grille, extending across the entire front. Small dotted lines of chrome plated are used as inserts.
To emphasize the severity of the sedan, the optical filling was completely replaced. The sports version of the Touring also remains in operation.
In the company photo, it is a red car, with distinctive sports elements. A feature of this sedan will be the mesh grille inserts.
Despite the fact that the bumper and base remain the same, the length of the updated Toyota Avalon has for some reason increased.
According to the manufacturer, the length is 4,990 mm (+15 mm). The other parameters remain the same. The width of the sedan is 1850 mm, the height is 1450 mm, and the wheelbase of the 2023 Avalon is 2870 mm.
More updates were made to the sedan’s interior. The dashboard is now fully digital, based on 12.3″. The multimedia system accepts a 10.1-inch screen.
Certainly not enough, especially since it lacks physical buttons and hoops. At the same time, such a multimedia screen will be available only for the upper trim levels.
The simplified version of the Toyota Avalon will receive a 7-inch screen for the dashboard and an 8-inch screen for the multimedia system.
Nice pluses are adaptive suspension, modern head-up display, surround view system, wireless charging for smartphones, and many other additional systems for driver and passenger.
As for the technical characteristics of the updated 2023 Toyota Avalon sedan, they have completely migrated from the pre-reformed version of the car.
In the Chinese market, this sedan is offered with a 2.0 or 2.5 liter naturally aspirated petrol engine. Unit strength is 178 and 209 horses, respectively.
A weaker engine is paired with a CVT, a more powerful unit will be offered with an 8-speed automatic transmission.
In addition to the configuration with an internal combustion engine, buyers will also be offered a hybrid modification. The basis is a 2.5 liter gasoline engine.
Together with the electric motor, the total power will be 218 horses. The driving force for all versions of the updated Avalon sedan will be the front only. The price of the new 2023 Toyota Avalon starts at $31,000, the top version will cost $44,000.
