Ahead of the Geneva Motor Show, Toyota have revealed exclusive images of the facelifted version of their 2015 Avensis to the public.
Toyota has unveiled its face lifted Avensis in both saloon and estate guise which will make its public debut at next month’s Geneva Motor Show. The revised Avensis gets a new front design, comfort and safety technology features and a new range of engines. The new Avensis is likely to go on sale in the UK sometime in June.
The updated Ford Mondeo rival gets a redesigned front end which we have previously seen on the Yaris and Aygo models. The new Avensis features a more aggressive front bumper with larger intakes, a slim top grille design and more angular headlamps with integrated daytime running lights. The rear looks set to have been updated as well, but is yet to be revealed.
Toyota has confirmed the new Avensis will feature a new range of engines that promises both “performance and efficiency”. A plug-in hybrid power train version could also be seen in Avensis. Toyota have revised the comfort and safety features meaning, the Avensis is likely to get fresh materials, upmarket dash layout and advanced driver safety and assistance features. The Avensis will be the first model in the Toyota range featuring Toyota’s safety sense collision avoidance kit and active safety technology.
The Avensis is the latest development of its contender in the European mid-size car market. It was styled by the company’s design team in the South of France and will be built by the Toyota Manufacturing UK plant at the Burnaston, near Derby.
The Avensis has been designed to appeal to both fleet and personal customers.
More information is expected on the new Avensis at the Geneva motor show, including prices and equipment specifications closer to the car’s launch.
