Toyota Avensis For Sale
The Toyota Avensis for sale has been in production from 1997 – 2018. A sibling of the Corolla, this 4-door sedan falls into the category of a mid-size family car. In Europe also available as a station wagon and hatch, the Avensis first made its appearance in South Africa in 2006, mid-second generation. The used Toyota Avensis for sale is a slightly smaller offering than the Camry and aimed at the mid-market tier.
The Toyota Avensis for sale is a handsome family vehicle, following the Toyota design language, but standing design-wise. The exterior design of the later generations shows close resemblance to its siblings, the Corolla and the Yaris. With strong lines across the bonnet following the silhouette as well as the bulky headlights and lower air vents in the bumper, it has a character of subdued elegance.
The interior is roomy as is the cargo space (250litres). The interior is finished with high-quality fabric and standard features eight airbags plus an extra below the steering column to protect the driver's knee on impact, electronic brake force distribution, vehicle stability control, emergency brake assist, and traction control. Upper trim levels offer extra luxuries such as leather seats, dual-zone air-conditioning, power-adjustable front seats, and electric windows and side mirrors.
The fascia is minimalist and functional with a handy LED for each dial – making it easier for the driver to see. The back seat has a 60:40 split with a fold-down armrest. The interior has several storage options such as door-pockets and cup holders.
Steering is direct and responsive. The gear change is precise and quick. The flagship model of the 2006 model is the 2.2liter Diesel matched with a six-speed manual transmission and a four-cylinder engine. With a power output of 110kW, it provides more than enough torque (310nM at 2000 r/min) for a comfortable and confident ride. The diesel engine has a nippy acceleration at 9.6 seconds from 0 -100km and the top speed of 210km per hour. The average consumption for combined usage is 7.6litres per 100km, which places it at a very economic level considering its size. The used Toyota Avensis for sale is a well-rounded family sedan with enough thought put into the design to give a feeling of luxury.
