The 2016 Toyota Avensis has a completely redesigned front with
a new grille, headlights (which include LED Daytime Running
Lights), as well as rear with new taillight clusters, rear
bumper, and 17 and 18-inch alloy wheels. The exterior has been
reworked to get a more dynamic look.

The vehicle has been a bit extended and the front has been made
bold.

The lower grille has been notably increased in size and
refreshed with a gloss black center. The fog lamps are placed
on the outer edges of the front bumper, making the car look
wider.

Interior

The interior of the 2016 Toyota Avensis provides a higher level
of comfort, which was one of Toyota’s primary goals. The cabin
looks more sophisticated and elegant, which has been achieved
through new trim and color schemes. NVH levels have been
significantly improved, through the utilization of thicker
materials which provide sound absorption and insulation. Air
conditioning noise reduction has been improved through heater
air duct seal lip integration.

The control panel consists of two volumes: the upper element
with an instrument binnacle containing a tachometer and
speedometer, and the lower element which contains a center
console separated from the transmission tunnel.

As for the seats, a luxurious look has been achieved through
fabric and Alcantra upholstery as well as Dual Ambient color
scheme: Terracotta and Light Grey. Front seat design has been
readjusted to facilitate long distance driving.

Engine and performance

A new powertrain introduced by the 2016 Toyota Avensis has been
extensively revised, with attention focused on the durability
and reliability for which it is already well-known. So, the new
model is expected to come with several engine options.
