Toyota's new product roll-out gathers momentum in 2012 with the scheduled arrival of several new models, including the recently revealed GT 86. Due in the first quarter of the year, however, is the all-new Avanza compact MPV.
Boasting far sharper styling and potentially slightly more space inside, the new Avanza will however not stray too far off the current model's successful recipe. In fact, you can expect to see the same 1,3- and 1,5-litre engines under the bonnet, and a similar model line-up, too. The interior looks significantly upgraded, though, with darker, more practical trim, and a number of new convenience features. One new technology that has been confirmed for the Avanza is electric power steering assistance.
Expect the new Avanza in local showrooms in February.
