Thanks to a top-to-bottom redesign, the 2019 Toyota Avalon not only offers the style and amenities that modern drivers are drawn to but it also offers premium performance under the hood. To help bring more control to the driver’s seat, each 2019 Avalon is outfitted with selectable drive modes that allow drivers to easily adjust their vehicle’s settings to current driving conditions and needs.

2019 Toyota Avalon Selectable Drive Modes

Depending on which selectable drive mode is activated, the engine, transmission, power steering, adaptive suspension, air conditioning, active noise control, and engine sound enhancement systems may be affected.

ECO Mode

In ECO Mode, the 2019 Avalon will automatically adjust and reduce the power to the engine, transmission, and air conditioning systems to conserve fuel. Perfect for long drives on the highway or crowded stop-and-go traffic that eats away at fuel consumption.

Normal Mode

Normal Mode will be most drivers’ preferred mode during everyday driving scenarios. It blends performance and fuel economy for a premium experience that brings the best of both worlds.

Sport Mode

When Sport Mode is activated, the engine, transmission, and power steering systems will be adjusted to offer dynamic acceleration and handling for a premium driving experience. Avalon models outfitted with engine sound enhancement will also hear adjustments to this system that highlight the sporty feel.

All of the trim levels on the 2019 Toyota Avalon come standard with the selectable drive modes listed above except for the Avalon Touring trim that offers a different selection of drive modes including Sport S, Sport S+, and Custom.
