Toyota’s Avanza is the new launch in India and will be placed below the Innova. The company has worked a lot on the design of the car in order to make it look compact SUV. Hopefully the car will offer improved power and efficiency. The Avanza runs on 1.5L 4 cylinder engine, with DOHC 16 valve VVTi system. The engine can churn out power of 109 PS and 141 NM of torque is also offered at 4,000 RPM. On city roads the car gives the mileage of 15.8kmpl and on highways it gives 11.2kmpl. Not only the car if fuel efficient but also it offers less carbon emissions. Compared to Innova the car is smaller in size but still powerful performer.
The Avanza is offered in six fresh colours but we need to wait for the official announcement from the company for the availability of all the shades in the market.
The Avanza has got sport exteriors with sharp curves. The grille of the car is chrome finished and the headlight is attractive. The bumper at the front has an exclusive design and the sides of the bumper have fog lights. Wipers at front and rear are distinctly stylish. The door handles, rear view mirror and spoiler add a classy touch to the car. The alloy wheels provided in the car are o 15 inches which improves the look and make it sportier. The tail lights of the car are pretty and side indicators are very well designed.
The front cabin of the car offers enough space and has adjustable seats. The interior has beige coloured seats and the fabric used is of good quality. The dashboard has AC vents, audio system and storage box. The steering wheel possesses audio controls on it offering convenience to the driver.
This is a seven-seater vehicle having sufficient legroom and headroom for the passengers. Due to the good fabric the seats offer great comfort.
The engine offers displacement of 1495 cc and performance of the vehicle is standard. The VVTi technology used ensures the quick pick up and running on the rough roads too.
Toyota Avanza will be available with standard features including 1 CD MP3 audio system with 4 speakers, AC, adjustable mirrors, power windows, door lock, and viper control and seat adjustment.
The braking system of the car is very effective and has ABS, EBD as well to offer greater safety to the passengers. The ABS system provided is very helpful against skidding on the roads and rear and front brake balance is maintained by EBD.
The driver and front passenger can feel safe while driving as Supplementary restraint system airbag is installed in the car. In addition to this, Toyota has loaded crash body safety, safety belts, thief deterrent system and side bar protection.
Handling is not a big deal in case of Toyota Avanza, it is easier to handle with strong engine, braking system, less emission system and jerk absorbers. This is a new and pretty impressive car introduced by Toyota with satisfying features in it.
