1. Brief overview of Toyota Avensis

Toyota Avensis was launched as a mid-size or large family car in European market in 1997, replacing Toyota Carina E.

Many people often mistake the large MPV Toyota Avensis Verso for another name of Avensis but in fact, it is just one of Avensis' variant released in 2001, also known as Toyota Ipsum or Toyota Picnic and was sold as the only Avensis version in Australia. And prices of Toyota Avensis in Nigeria we provided in the next part will include Avensis Verso prices as well.

Avensis shared the platform with Toyota Corolla and some other models such as Scion tC, Toyota Premio or Allion. That’s why it was not sold in North America where Camry was already dominating the market.

5. The milestones during Toyota Avensis lifespan

The birth of Avensis

With a view to bringing a more modern sense to existing Carina E, Toyota decided to introduce the nameplate Avensis in 1997. Only engines were kept in line with the predecessor while the overall design experienced a complete transformation.

The newly born Avensis was renowned for its affirmative and reliable performance, roomy interior space, smooth ride and generous equipment. However, like many Toyota vehicles at that time, Avensis did not evoke much excitement for its humble design.

The overall design of 1st-gen Avensis didn’t attract much attention

Avensis in the first days bore much resemblance to Toyota Caldina, Corona and Celica. Variable valve timing and satellite navigation was made standard since the 2000 facelift but sales seemed to decline, requiring a more innovative approach from this Japanese automaker.

The prime time of Avensis

We can say that the second-gen Avensis is the most successful version, attracting most sales during the whole time it presents in the vehicle industry.

Rolled out in 2003, this Avensis brought a totally different sense of driver involvement as well as visual appeal. The French design team of the company had done a great job to improve aesthetic values of the car, like the way they did to Toyota Echo and Corolla.

The 2nd-gen Avensis enjoyed a more appealing exterior

Regarding the powertrain option, a 2.4L four-cylinder engine was added besides previous 1ZZ-FE configurations. A 5-speed automatic transmission was offered to pair with this mill. The 115PS D-4D diesel engine had also been complemented with a new 2.2L D-4D to produce 136 PS or 177 PS in 2 different versions.

In 2004, Avensis gained third prize in European Car of the Year competition with Volkswagen Golf, following Fiat Panda and Mazda3. What’s more, it was awarded “Best Family Car” in both 2004 and 2005.

The second-gen Avensis was the first Japanese car to get 5 stars from Euro NCAP and the first vehicle in Europe to offer a knee airbag.

The last designs of Avensis

Toyota Avensis third generation was unveiled in Paris Motor Show 2008 in sedan and station wagon forms only.

Many remarkable features have been introduced like:

  • AFS (adaptive front-lighting system)
  • VSC+ (vehicle stability control+)
  • PSC (pre-collision system)
  • LDW (lane departure warning)
  • LKA (lane keeping assist)

This gen was sold with 3 petrol and 4 diesel engine choices. For the first time, Toyota’s Valvematic technology was applied to newly developed ZR engines.

During these years, Avensis had gone through 2 facelifting periods with minor modifications. Some can be named as revised headlamps, taillights, front grille and the addition of “Toyota Safety Sense” feature.

Avensis has come to the end of its life

Toyota Avensis was officially discontinued in August 2018 for the UK market, whereas all European production will be stopped later this year. XV70 Camry, in the meantime, will succeed to Avensis in conquering these market places.

6. Toyota Avensis model year 2005 – the representative of Avensis lineup

As we mentioned earlier, the second-gen models with innovative changes were the most successful during the whole Avensis lifespan. And among these products, the model year 2005 proves much more favoured than others.

It was reviewed by many consumers as “excellent sized family car” with “great drive.” Performance is beyond expectations; everything from brakes to seat materials are in high quality.

So now you know the reasons for its popularity which is either its exterior or interior design plus its reliability in performance.
