Toyota teases with more details on the new Avensis

A new Toyota Avensis is coming to the UK, and more information has now been released on this exciting model update.

Both the hatchback and the Touring Sports move into a new generation this year. For 2015, the different versions of the Avensis are receiving facelifts and new equipment. It now appears much closer visually to newer Toyota models. The LED headlights, front bumper and bonnet have all been carefully reshaped. A 40mm increase to the wheelbase adds to the interior space.

On the inside of the car, drivers will now find a more relaxed environment with stronger insulation. Changes to the chassis further add to the subtly different feel of the Avensis as you travel.

New specification levels for the model are Active, Business Edition, Business Edition+ and Excel. All of them include Toyota's forward-thinking package of safety systems.

The standard equipment with the Avensis encompasses Bluetooth connectivity, cruise control and LED daytime running lights. Upgrading will add satellite navigation and leather upholstery to the car. Full specifications for each trim level are yet to be confirmed by the manufacturer.

Toyota has also confirmed the engine range for the refreshed Avensis. Two new diesel engines join the range, a lightweight 1.6-litre and a 2.0-litre. The diesels will generate as much as 68.9mpg and 62.8mpg respectively. All of the petrol engine options have also been optimised to cut down emissions.
