The new 2016 Toyota Avensis will be in showrooms this summer, also, this car brings some changes. Toyota Avensis is exclusively available overseas, but this doesn’t mean it is a bad car. It slots somewhere between Camry and Avalon in the states, and represents a fine family car which comes in three body styles. After Geneva, and a few more months, 2016 Toyota Avensis starts the fourth generation sales in Europe.
2016 Toyota Avensis engine
2016 Toyota Avensis should offer some new engine choices, together with carried over options. For starters, the car will have a single petrol unit and couple of oil burners. 1.8L 4-cylinder petrol option should deliver 145 horses and be tied to either 6-speed manual or automatic transmission. 2.2L 4-cylinder diesel engine offers both transmission choices as well, and makes 148 horsepower. Finally, 2.0L 4-cylinder diesel engine puts up 122 horsepower and comes exclusively with manual gearbox which makes the base option.
2016 Toyota Avensis design
Previous generation came under a lot of scrutiny for its bland and uninspiring design. Things are different now as new Avensis looks better. However, it doesn’t feature a revolutionary styling which is somewhat natural for mid-size sedans. Initial year gave us sedan and wagon models, while hatchback should be offered later. Frontal fascia of both cars has been toned down and features sharper and more contemporary headlamp units. Both models have similar behinds even though they feature different bodies. Large tail-lights and a chrome garnish between them seem like a fine choice.
