You’ll stand out from the crowd in the redesigned Avensis. It features a sleek modern exterior, with a bold grille up front and a low, road-hugging silhouette.
As well-suited to the open road as it is with the demands of around-town running, the 2.0-litre petrol engine in the Avensis features Valvematic Dual Variable Valve Timing (VVT-i) which helps ensure perfect power delivery regardless of driving conditions.
The system also helps to reduce fuel consumption and emissions and generally improves engine performance. The Avensis records combined average fuel consumption of 6.4-litres/100km and EURO6 compliant combined emissions of 155g/km.
The Avensis features clever technology designed to deliver you safely wherever you’re going, offering up more assured control in all weathers and on all roads.
If the car starts to skid due to a sudden change in direction on a damp or winding road, Vehicle Stability Control Plus (VSC+) will work to restore control by braking each wheel individually and adjusting engine power accordingly. Traction Control (TRC) complements VSC+ by limiting wheelspin during acceleration, which is handy on the sorts of back roads that criss-cross New Zealand.
Toyota Safety Sense is a package of active safety systems designed to keep you and your passengers protected in all types of traffic. Around town and at lower speeds Toyota Safety Sense can help prevent collisions, while on the open road and at higher speeds it aims to reduce the severity of any impact by supporting your awareness and decision-making with leading safety technology.
If the Pre-Crash Safety System determines the possibility of collision is imminent, the driver is alerted with audio and visual warnings. The system may also provide additional braking force using Brake Assist. If the driver does not brake in time the system may automatically apply the brakes in order to prevent or alleviate a collision.
If the Lane Departure Alert detects that the vehicle is starting to deviate from its lane without an indicator being applied the system will alert the driver with audio and visual warnings. The driver can then assess the situation and take corrective action.
The Automatic High Beam is designed to optimize driving visibility at night without dazzling other drivers. A camera detects the lights of oncoming and preceding vehicles. The system will switch automatically between high and low beam for enhanced visibility which may advance detection of any obstacles for a safer drive.
Accessory options for your Avensis wagon include cargo liners, towbar and weather sheilds.
Toyota dealers also offer a host of other accessories you can choose from, such as wheel and tyre options, roof racks and floor mats.
This superior engine technology is matched with a seven-speed Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT)[?] , giving you smooth gear shifting for New Zealand’s ever-changing open roads and urban motorways.
You have the potential to achieve even greater fuel economy too, with the ECO display guiding you in allowing the engine to run at its most efficient.
The car’s dash and centre console are really intuitive to use. The Avensis’ Multi-Information Display (MID) is where you’ll find all the vehicle information you need – like current and average fuel consumption, range, and your average speed data – appears in one convenient screen right ahead of the driver.
Combined with the supportive seats and adjusting the leather steering wheel to suit will give you a thoroughly comfortable position, whether on the daily commute or a long journey out of town.
The 5 star ANCAP rated Avensis range gives you peace of mind wherever your travels take you.
