2013 Toyota Avalon to Take Cues from the Audi A7 and Jag XJ

Toyota is getting ready to launch the all-new 2012 Toyota Camry, but apparently Toyota’s dealers are more excited about what Toyota has in store for the next-gen 2013 Avalon.

Toyota held its national meeting in Las Vegas in June in which Toyota revealed many of its product plans, including the new Camry and the next Avalon. It’s being reported that Toyota’s dealers were more excited about the next Avalon than the Camry.

One dealer commented about the next Avalon, “This is not a geezer pleaser.”

So what does Toyota have planned for its largest sedan? The next Avalon is expected to get a lot more style and to borrow styling cues from the Audi A7 and Jaguar XJ. The Avalon will keep its 3.5L V6, but handling is also expected to be improved. The 2013 Avalon is expected to be released in the fall of 2012.

What do you think about a sexier Avalon?
