New Avanza features more tech and Dual VVT-i engines
Toyota PH has launched the all-new Avanza for 2015. The company’s best-selling Compact MPV promises more power, improved fuel efficiency and an enhanced level of suppressing Noise, Vibration, Harshness (NVH) for a more comfortable ride.
Changes to the exterior includes a new grille, now integrated to the front bumper. A bold character line gives the front bumper a squared-off look and fresher look. More prominent fender flares adorn the sides of the all-new Avanza. For the top-spec models, the 2015 Avanza rides on 15 inch alloy wheels. All in all, Toyota says the new exterior design gives the Avanza a more upscale look.
Inside, top-spec Avanzas get a brown interior with grey contrasts which aims to make the passengers feel more comfortable inside. The Avanza’s third row seats can now be split 50:50 for cargo area flexibility. For in-car technologies, the 2016 Avanza comes with a driver information display that keeps track of fuel economy, as well as an eco-indicator to help the driver when it comes to efficiency. The Avanza is also available with a navi-ready touchscreen display audio system.
For the first time in Toyota’s compact MPV, the Avanza features Dual VVT-I technologies under the hood. The Avanza is available in either 1.3 or 1.5 Liter, four cylinder engines. With the new technologies, the Avanza 1.3 now develops 97PS and 120Nm of torque while the 1.5 liter model puts out 104 PS and 136 Nm of torque.
For safety features, the Avanza comes with standard Anti-lock braking system with electronic brake -force distribution in all variants and a Child Restraint System with ISOFIX mountings.
