With its roomy cabin and refined drive, the Toyota Avensis makes for a very desirable family car. Available in four trim levels – Active, Business Edition, Business Edition Plus and Excel, the Avensis is a saloon vehicle that comes with a fine range of standard features.
The distinctively styled Avensis features a striking Piano Black upper front grille with integrated chrome inserts. Chrome can be found elsewhere, on window surrounds for example. Colour-keyed elements include bumpers, door handles and (power-operated, retractable and heated) door mirrors. The latter also incorporate indicator lights. A range of LED lighting includes rear brake lights, daytime running lights and combination lamps, as well as front and rear light guides.
Inside the New Toyota Avensis, a three-spoke leather steering wheel offers rake-and-reach adjustability, while the driver’s seat is alterable too, enabling you to find your perfect position. Among the range of standard features included are an electrochromic rear-view mirror and power-operated front windows, the latter of which are UV-filtered. Stowage provision includes a front console box, an illuminated glovebox, a parcel shelf, door pockets and cup holders. A 509-litre boot incorporates an underfloor compartment, which is particularly useful for temporarily storing items you might want to keep hidden from prying eyes. With seats folded, the luggage capacity expands to 1,320 litres.
