2016 Toyota Avensis Wagon and Sedan Review

Until recently Toyota Avensis enjoyed the high popularity among the whole range of customers, nowadays, after days of its glory have passed, so the folks from Toyota have given their very best to “come Avensis to alive” with officially announcing its fully refreshed, somehow, more trendy variant that comes along with a brand new platform. A main task, which have the guys from Toyota gave them as a homework, is to design a whole new version that will be, at the same time, far more different from a current version that could be found on a global car market, these days. So, the brand new 2016 Toyota Avensis is going to come with a bunch of new engine options and fully refreshed and redesigned interior and exterior.

Interior and Exterior Appearance

As for the interior of the 2016 Toyota Avensis, the positioning, as well as repulsive design of some ancillary controls is, let’s say, less satisfactory, the rotary heating controls are too shallow, meaning that they could get quite an easy purchase; regarding the mirror controls, they are nothing but a lousy, flat squares of plastics and on the top of all, the release for the electric parking brake is hidden from view behind the steering wheel. Pretty disappointing, we know! Like that isn’t enough, there are customers, who have certain complains about discomfort of Avensis’ seats, as well as its main cabin isn’t roomy enough. Looking at the slightly brighter side, part of a standard equipment includes air-con, Bluetooth connectivity, a USB and auxin connection, a leather-trimmed steering wheel, somewhat upgraded climate and cruise control, a DAB tuner, sat-navigation, a rear-view camera etc.


When it comes to the exterior, the planned refreshments, the vast majority of them, are intended to be made in the general appearance area. What that means? I can hear your following question. That practically means that the exterior will be much more aggressive as well as more aerodynamic, general speaking. In addition to all that, equipped with a brand new platform, it will be far longer, much wider as well as slightly lower than its predecessors. As you can see from the first photos, which ended in our hands, we can come to conclusion that with all upgrades the brand new 2016 Toyota Avensis physical appearance is simple stunning! It will be available in both the sedan and wagon variants.

Pretty awesome thing, that the 2016 Toyota Avensis comes along with the whole range of engine options. The first one comes badged with the Tourer logo and presents a 1.8-liter Valvematic petrol engine delivering 147 horsepower and 180 Nm of torque. A 1.6-liter or 2.0L D-4D diesel engines are also available for all the trims, first one producing 112 horses and 270 Nm of torque, and second producing 143 hp and 320 Nm of twist. A six-speed manual has been paired with all models. Noteworthy is that the 1.8L petrol is available with Toyota’s ‘M/D S’, an automated manual, while, CVT will also be available as optional transmission.


2016 Toyota Avensis Release Date, Price

If you strive to own a quiet, highly safe and utterly reliable car, maybe the 2016 Toyota Avensis presents the perfect choice for you. However, you are looking for an exciting car to drive, which will make you feel like the one of the guys from Fast & Furious movies, then you might consider looking elsewhere. The brand new Avensis made its debut at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show in March. Price wise, it will most likely be around $27,000 for a base model (not official price).
