In the US, the fourth-generation Avalon continues as the flagship in Toyota's passenger car range, sitting above the Camry as the largest model in the sedan line-up.
Up front, the new Avalon takes on a design closely related to the new Camry and the outgoing Avalon, with the same stepped headlight design, V-like grille and sharp-cornered bumper.
In profile howver, the Avalon distances itself from the Camry and its predecessor with a coupe-like roofline, terminating in a short rear deck and long scalpel-shaped LED tail-lights.
Inside, the Avalon is treated to a more upmarket design, with a leather-wrapped dash and cup holder, shadow-chromed highlights and wood trim throughout.
Powertrains have not been detailed.
The new Avalon was designed at Toyota's Calty Design offices in California and Michigan, and production will begin in Kentucky later this year.
