2021 Toyota Avalon video

JASON KAVANAGH: The all-new 2019 Toyota Avalon showed up at the Detroit Auto Show. Let's take a closer look. [MUSIC PLAYING] The new Avalon is lower, wider, and it rides on a longer wheelbase than the outgoing car. It's actually on the same platform as the Camry, which, if you remember, made a big change last year. And it was a big change for the better. So we have big expectations for the Avalon, as well. And you can just take a look at it. The styling is a lot more aggressive. There's more room in the back seat. The interior materials are a lot more premium. And they say it's more sporty to drive. Based on the Camry, we're gonna have to believe them. [MUSIC PLAYING] It'll be available with two power trains, a 3.5-liter v6 gasoline engine that's borrowed from the Camry, as well as the Camry's 2.5-liter four-cylinder-based hybrid. And that's it. You get a hybrid or a gas engine. Take your pick. The old car's strut-based rear suspension has been replaced with a multi-link layout, which is supposed to ride better and have better handling. And they say it's quieter, too. The Avalon is Toyota's flagship vehicle so they needed to bring their A game, and I think they did it. From the exterior design to the materials inside the cabin, it's definitely a more premium vehicle. And the Avalon is the first Toyota available with Apple CarPlay. And that's kind of a big deal if you've been paying attention to Toyotas. Obviously, we haven't driven the new Avalon yet. It goes on sale late spring this year, so it won't be long.

Should I lease or buy a 2021 Toyota Avalon?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
