Toyota Avanza


The first-generation Avanza was a pioneering ‘no-frills’ MPV that delivered exactly it promised on the tin it got as many people as from one place to another in However, the all-new Avanza goes on sale on the 6 th February has upped the ante considerably by big: it’s big on style, big on and big on comfort.

Make no mistake, the still retains all the virtues of the model namely: seven-seater compact exterior dimensions and value for money, but the entire is finessed thanks to the following:

A new design inside and out with an sense of quality

Improved levels

Improved storage especially when all three of seats are occupied

Improved specification levels

Improved comfort and handling stability to the new suspension lay-out

Improved economy and CO 2 emissions

In the words of Hamman, Senior Vice for Sales and Marketing (Toyota SA “The Avanza with its configuration and affordable price tag has no competitors in the compact MPV market This all-new second-generation offers so much more a styling, refinement and comfort that we are confident it will be more favourably received its predecessor.”

Design and Styling

and spacious are the two keywords in the Avanza’s language. More remarkable is the that this was achieved dramatically increasing external the new Avanza has grown in length by and 25mm in overall width.

In profile the dominant styling are the svelte, elongated windows give the impression of one solid of glass. This more demeanour is reinforced by the flared arches and the lower rocker featuring a curved character Colour-coded door handles are The S and SX models are shod with steel wheels and complementary caps; the TX variant is equipped 15-inch alloys. Mud guards are on the SX and TX models.

Frontal design include an outwardly-thrusting ‘snout’ incorporates the Toyota logo is the new family face of Toyota was first exhibited on the recently Yaris. The grille is body-coloured the range except for the flagship TX has chrome mouldings. This model also gets fog lamps on the standard menu.

The door ‘flares out’ the license plate, once imparting a sense of strength. A spoiler with an integrated stop lamp and a rear garnish strip are two of the trimmings come standard on the high-end TX

Dynamism and spaciousness likewise the Avanza’s indoor environment. The of the cabin has much more of a car presence than its predecessor. is partly attributable to the design of the panel which has been as much as possible to enhance and open up the cabin. Also to this car-like feel is the located cluster allowing for access to the vents, audio and ventilation system.

The tactile quality of the interior has been addressed with all and door panel surfaces a high quality texture using paint or chrome accent glossy and matt finishes have been used on the areas surrounding the ventilation vents and on the central knobs.

One of the biggest triumphs of the new Avanza is the way in which occupant and space has been increased substantially enlarging the external All three rows of seats occupants ample room kneeroom and, even a full complement of passengers all the seats, there is still boot space to store a amount of luggage. Space was by adjusting the shape and placement of the and door trim, millimetre by

What was done to increase space and comfort:

A new lightweight design for enhanced ride was adopted The cabin width at the trim ornament has been by 10 mm on each side, creating a of spaciousness. The front seatbacks been made thinner, knee space in the second row by 20 mm, comfort. The second row seatback has reduced in thickness by 10 mm, ensuring space for the third row occupants. A function (SX and TX) has been added to the row seat (backward 60 mm), it possible to greatly expand the row foot space to accommodate A one-touch tumble feature has adopted on the second row seat when combined with the sliding function (SX and TX), ease of access to the third row The third row seat has been forward by 10 mm and the back door moved rearward by 8 mm, realising an 18 mm of the luggage area.

In terms of kit, the entry-level grade comes with remote central locking, immobiliser, electric power (tilt-adjustable), electric windows, front airbags and a plethora of compartments as standard.

SX models in with colour-coded electrically-adjustable mirrors, air conditioning and adjustable and aft) second-row seats.

The TX tops up the spec list an integrated four-speaker sound with remote steering a USB/auxiliary/iPod port and a dual-zone control air conditioning system separate rear roof for rear passengers.


The and 1.5-litre petrol engines and are essentially carry-overs from the model, however the vehicle weight has been reduced by 20kg, and aerodynamic performance has enhanced. In addition, low rolling tyres and EPS (Electric Power have been adopted control of the air conditioning and engine has improved. This together a myriad of other minute has combined to realise substantial performance and fuel economy While on the subject of the latter, the model received high for its excellent fuel economy, but has successfully improved on this the new model. The average consumption in the combined cycle are as follows: 7,7 for the 1.3; 7,6 L/100km for the 1.5 auto and 7,2 for the 1.5 manual.

On the performance front, the 1.5 manual from 0-100km/h in 11.9 down from 12,1 (the figure is marginally for the auto); interestingly the 1.3-litre with its lighter mass the obligatory sprint in exactly the time as its 1500 stablemate 11,9 seconds down 12,2 seconds), but bear in that the in-gear acceleration for the is stronger than its smaller

In-line four 1.5 L 3SZ-VE and 1.3 L K3-VE engines VVT-i have been over for a combination of high fuel economy and environmental A resonator has been added to the air hose to reduce engine noise, enhancing quietness at engine speeds. Five-speed transmissions are standard across the but for the first time, the Avanza is with a 4-speed automatic (in SX guise only) when to the 1.5-litre engine. Hydraulic is optimised using electronic to achieve smooth shifting and acceleration. A lock-up mechanism has adopted to reduce the power-loss with torque converter — this helps to fuel efficiency.

VVT-i System

VVT-i is a that continuously optimises the of intake valve operation in with driving conditions to a high level of engine under all driving conditions; positive spin-off is enhanced economy and lowered emissions.

and Handling

In developing the new Avanza, specifically targeted the areas of comfort and handling. To this end the has been tuned to ensure straight-line stability while settings have been to soften the shock from and suppress swaying when lanes. Additionally, to enhance when driving at high-speeds, and vibration (NV) performance has enhanced. Furthermore, wind has been reduced through a of the upper body’s soundproofing and materials.

Technical Highlights:

To the maximum possible steering — a McPherson strut-type suspension has been adopted. To excellent drivability — a type (4-link with control rod) rear has been adopted for excellent To ensure straight-line stability and ride comfort — angle and caster trail have been increased. To turning feeling — pin inclination and king pin offset been increased. To ensure stability — the tread has widened (14-inch wheels: +20 mm, wheels: +10 mm). To ensure a of security when steering upper support characteristics been optimised to absorb yawing motion. To ensure a of stability when steering a rebound stopper has been speeding recovery of damping of the absorbers on the inside wheels in a To enhance tyre contact on surfaces — the shock rebound stroke has been To ensure good ride — the size of the impact lower arm bushings has been and coil spring characteristics been optimised to absorb Absorber damping force has optimised to match the coil stiffness.

Electric Power Steering

The hydraulic power steering has been replaced with an EPS Additionally, the gear ratio has set lower while considering the characteristics as a three-row seven-seater, realising highly responsive feel. With adoption of the EPS, annoying vibration or has been dialled out without any steering feel.
