That front end is worrisome. Such a large grille(?) and lots of connecting pieces. None of the shapes make sense/flow with the body.

But the camo is probably obscuring it oddly. I will say the refreshed Avalon went the wrong direction IMO. Too much angry/sad fish mouth instead of the traditional upright trapezoidal version pre-MMC. I can't see Toyota messing up one of their best products though.

I mean...have you seen the new Camry's front end? I don't think the camo is obscuring it realistically, given the whale mouth's they've been putting on other new models.

True, but I can't even make sense of what the actual shape of the main grille will be. The Camry has a Lexus-lite predator face which you could rationalize in the spyshots. Here the connecting pieces coming from the edged of the upper opening go down almost vertically. But the overall big-bass mouth is there too, more alike to the Camry LE. So it kind of looks like they took the LE and SE Camry faces and smashed them together... I'm just bracing for something monstrous...

The Avalon is definitely Toyota's best looking sedan at the moment. It's also like getting a Lexus ES for nearer the price of a Camry.

With the new Camry looking so much like a mildly restyled version of the one it replaces, it follows that if you were to marry the Camry's new face with the look of the current Avalon, you'll have the new one's look.

What I find interesting is that while the Avalon has sold rather well for Toyota as a niche product, the 2017 sales have dropped considerably. This was no doubt too far along for Toyota to have responded to the sedan collapse.

That's the beauty of it - there will be so many grilles, you don't have to define a main grille. There's one for everyone, in every possible shape ;)

That said, I do expect an evolutionary approach with the new Camry's not overly attractive face (the rest of the Camry is quite okay though), so it probably won#t be too bad....

Like the new Camry, it looks like this will be a fundamentally attractive design spoiled by a comically aggressive face. I do like the headlights though.

I'd like to see someone produce an image of this Toyota look taken to its extreme, which would be a front end that consists of nothing but the gigantic mesh grill, with small slit headlights atop it. It would be laugh worthy and perhaps make a point that enough is enough.

Looks like a more hideous Toyota face than normal. And they're teasing this?
