When the 2017 Toyota Avensis arrives at the market sometime in 2017 it will be a facelift of the existing model, plus a few features that will improve on the large family car that the Avensis has been ever since its introduction in 1997 offering at once reliability and fuel effiency with a dash of style.
Although the information about the new Avensis is still scarce and this review is mostly based on guesswork, even now the model looks set to check all the boxes when it comes to consumers’ demands.
Exterior and Interior
As far the exterior is concerned, we can expect to see the changes in the length and width of the wheelbase with a more agressive front face uplift. The lower grille will likely grow in size complementing a larger front bumper while the narrow upper grille will fit snugly between the new LED head lights.The 2017 Toyota Avensis will sit on a new set of 16-, 17- and 18-inch wheels, which will give it an even more pronounced wider stance. Moreover, to the rear end the model will sport a protection glass in the rear window and a slightly modified hood and remoulder tail lights.
Inside, the Avensis will feature a new set of leather Alcantara seats, which promise to offer more room for legs. The dashboard will be practical with new graphics and a touch pad placed quite handy. Also, the surrounding audio system and high-end navigation features will round off the interior.Furthemore, the Toyota’s trademark airbags at the front, back and the sides are guaranteed to continue the reputation of one the safest models in the family car category.
Powertrain and Engines
The 2017 Toyota Avensis will be outfitted with a wide range of engine trims. The base model will likely feature the standard and reliable 1.6-liter Valvematic gas engine which generates 132 horsepower and 118 pound-ft of torque coupled with a six speed manual transmission.
Also, there will be a 1.8-liter engine with Valvematic unit generating 147 horsepower and 133 lb-ft of torque. By far the most powerful power train in this car will be the 2.0-liter Valvematic which generates 153 horsepower and 133 pound-ft of torque coming with a Multidrive S CVT transmission.Plus, there will also be available a diesel unit which is expected to be somewhere between a 2.0-liter and a 2.2- liter D-4D diesel engine. This engine will generate 150 horsepower and 250 pounds-ft of torque.
2017 Toyota Avensis Release Date and Price
We expect the Toyota Avensis will start showing in late 2016. The pricing will likely be set at around $30,000 for the base trim and will climb up depending on the options.
