Toyota unveiled the Avensis in back  1997 as a trade for the Carina E. Despite the fact that the first-gen car was to a great extent a redid Carina with new styling, the Avensis demonstrated a business accomplishment for Toyota Europe. Updated in 2003 and again in 2009, the Avensis developed in size and propelled as far as innovation, power, and mileage, at last turning into a solid contender for any semblance of the Ford Mondeo, Volkswagen Passat. At the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, Toyota propelled the fourth-era Avensis, a fundamentally enhanced cycle based on the same MC platform stage.The new front fascia is both sleeker and more aggressive, sporting slim headlamps and grille similar to those on the smaller Corolla. Combined, the chrome trim on the grille and the LED daytime running lights incorporated into the headlamps give the new Avensis an individual illumination signature that sets it apart from other Toyota Toyotas. Down below, the apron carries a trapezoidal center section flanked by fog lamps mounted in large black surrounds.

But while the front end reminds me of the Corolla, the rear fascia is different, featuring larger taillights, a distinctive trunk lid, and chrome detailing that incorporates the Toyota emblem. As with most Toyota sedans, the rear bumper is rather simple. Viewed from the side, the new Avensis is only a mild evolution of its predecessor, mostly because Toyota didn’t change much above the wheelbase, as the greenhouse area, the side skirts, and the fenders are similar to the third-gen sedan. However, there’s a seemingly more-pronounced waistline, a trunk lid spoiler, and redesigned wheels to count as fresh additions.

All new 2015 Avensis exudes more elegance and sportiness, two features sedan buyers will most likely appreciate. Additionally, the new LED technology gives it a more premium look, which might prove important in a segment that includes the Ford Fusion and the Mazda 6.Updates are significant inside the cabin as well, where Toyota redesigned both the dashboard and the center stack, and added modern technology and features. The instrument cluster feels sportier thanks to its tubed gauges and 4.2-inch TFT screen, while the center stack, which incorporates an 8-inch color touchscreen, is now separate from the transmission tunnel. The steering wheel and gear lever are also new, as are the bolstered front seats, which is comfortable for long-distance travel.

The satin chrome inserts and the new interior finishes, including Alcantara seat upholstery or the Dual Ambient color scheme with either Terracotta or Light Grey, give the Avensis’ cabin a higher quality appearance. Higher trim levels receive smart entry, leather upholstery and Toyota Touch 2 with Go Plus and satellite navigation. An optional premium pack adds power-adjustable front seats with memory and a Skyview panoramic roof.NVH levels have been essentially diminished by thicker materials for sound assimilation and protection, and an underbody damping sheet on diesel models.The fourth-era Avensis accompanies a decision of five, four-barrel motors, which as with most Euro-spec autos, incorporates a few diesels. The fuel extent starts with the 1.6-liter evaluated at 130 torque and 115 pound-feet of torque. The unit mates to a six-rate manual and returns a 0-to-62 sprint of 10.3 seconds and a top pace of 120 mph. More power originates from the 1.8-liter unit, which wrenches out 140 strength and 130 pound-feet through either a six-pace manual or a CVT. The 62-mph sprint brings 9.3 seconds with the manual and 10.4 ticks with the CVT, while in transit to 124 mph,Toyota promises improved fuel economy and reduced carbon-dioxide emissions across the board.With the European large family car market no longer dominated by spacious and reliable but forgettable cars, Toyota was basically forced to up the ante in the styling department. It did so with the third-generation Avensis, which no longer looks like only grandpa would buy it, but takes things up a notch with the latest iteration of the sedan. The styling is fresh, the interior has that premium feel drivers are looking for nowadays, and the engine lineup is as diverse as it gets. If Toyota manages to keep the Avensis’ price down despite these massive changes, it could have a winner on its hands.
