The 7-seater Avanza is big business for Toyota moving an average of 440 units each month. The top of the range TX model has received some aesthetic upgrades to keep abreast of client requirements in the segment.
Upfront, the range topping Avanza TX gets a revised bumper, a body-coloured accent strip that divides the headlamps and creates a border between the chrome upper and black lower-grille sections, new split-level LED-headlamps with vertically-arranged airdams and fog lamp garnish, aerodynamically-shaped exterior mirrors, shark-fin antenna and turbine-shaped 15” alloy wheels.
At the back, the car also gets a revised bumper, a new rear boot spoiler, revised taillamps (with clear elements) and chrome accents.
A new deep blue exterior colour, Fervent Blue, has been added to the colour list – with Tusk white, Quicksilver metallic, Graphite Grey and Gold Leaf metallic remaining.
All new Avanza models receive a change from rotary-dial-type HVAC controls to push-button control with digital readout. In line with customer requests the interior trim has been changed from light grey to dark grey. Front and rear 12-volt accessory connectors have been fitted as standard.
The range retains the 71 kW 1,3 and 77 kW 1,5 petrol engines that are currently employed by the range.
