    Price: USD 5,843

It will not be surprising for anyone if the brand-new Toyota Avanza astounds you when you first see it, as it does everyone else. Just something about it seems to speak differently to the car enthusiasts. The new Avanza felt significantly larger than the previous model, which was more like a small MPV. However, when you contrast the Toyota Avanza from the last generation to this brand-new one, the manufacturer in addition to only its size has altered many essentials.

The all-new Toyota Avanza For Sale In South Africa is larger and better in every way possible, but the wheelbase and total length have to be the most noticeable changes in size. The wheelbase grows by 95 mm (3.7 in), while the overall length increases by a remarkable 195 mm (7.7 in). Both weigh more in terms of both passenger and freight space. You can tell that the increase in capacity, whether for freight or passengers, is far greater when you consider that the front portion of the Avanza holds the same length.




The 4-cylinder, DOHC, 16-valve engine that powers the Toyota Avanza has a displacement of 1496 cc. The DOHC 16 Valves engine has a maximum power output of 103 hp at 6000 rpm and a maximum torque output of 136 Nm at 4200 rpm.

It is a petrol vehicle and offers 45-liter fuel tank, which has an average mileage of Km/L in cities and a higher Km/L on highways. The Toyota Avanza has a manual, five-speed gearbox with a minimum turning radius of around 5 meters. It sports a five-link rear suspension and a Macpherson strut front suspension. The front brakes are ventilated discs, while the rear brakes are drum brakes.

Toyota Avanza factory-installed tires are 185/65 R15. Within the specified size of the firm, you may also install tires of a larger size depending on the need.

The configuration shift from rear-wheel drive to front-wheel drive on the new Toyota Avanza is highly important to consider, but not in the way conventional wisdom would predict. Without delving too far into the physics, pick-ups with big payloads benefit the most from the rear-wheel drive. However, the front-wheel-drive configuration makes a lot more sense for a vehicle like the Toyota Avanza and how it is often operated.



Drive And Performance

It is nothing like the former versions, which is fantastic if you are coming from the previous two Avanza iterations. Compared to earlier Avanza models, this one is a Camry, making it the MPVs most comfortable design. That far out is for real.

With gentle controls and uncomplicated dynamics, even the handling has improved significantly. Driving is not fun, but that is not the objective for its intended audience. They want something simple, and this provides just that. But watch out for the brakes. Sometimes they become a little too enthusiastic about biting.



Fuel Economy

Toyota Avanza has decent fuel efficiency, but dual-mode CVT offers a split gear that improves efficiency. With the brand-new Toyota Avanza or Raize, the CVT automatically switches into its split mode when you travel at greater speeds, engaging the gear drive that provides superior power and economy. Instead of high-speed gear, this Toyotas Direct Shift-CVT employs launch gear. From a mechanical standpoint, the D-CVT is the reverse of the Toyota Direct Shift CVT. The all-new Toyota Avanza with Raizes D-CVT offers a 12 percent improvement in the economy at 60 km/h and a staggering 19 percent improvement at 100 km/h.



Toyota Avanza Interior

When you enter the new MPV, you will feel the same way that you felt seeing it from the outside. Yes, everything is made of hard plastic, but the inside is not meant to resemble that of a Toyota Alphard. It only has to be superior to the previous edition.

More than ever, the design looks like an automobile. You no longer get the impression that you are in a utility car. The nicest element is the significantly better driving posture; this is no longer a mini-truck passing for a family wagon. Given that this is an MPV, there are several cubby compartments.

Cup holders are located just in front of the AC vents, and there is a big box immediately beneath the radio and a cute small shelf above the glove box.

The joints and edges that are shiny and smooth are fewer fittings that support the aerodynamic body line of the amazing car. In addition to serving as a sage guard, the doors also serve as your music companion because they include built-in speakers and compartments for bottle storage. An AUX, an iPod jack, and a USB port are all located in the front, right next to the steering. The system with two cabin air conditioners to create a relaxing environment.



Toyota Avanza Exterior

The brand-new Toyota Avanza initially has a car-like appearance rather than an MPV. The Avanzas energetic broad front grille, supplemented by split-type, elongated LED headlights and bordered by halogen fog lamps, will appeal to today city dwellers. The fashionable 16-inch aluminum wheels that support this sturdy front face add a new toughness.

Although Toyota has added just the right amount of edginess to the Avanzas overall shape, which offers a sportier and more imposing structure that veers away from the roundedness of the previous generation, the side profile is still clearly MPV-like. Because of this, the brand-new Avanza is even cooler and more advanced than its predecessor is.



Types Of Trims

All variations come equipped with twin airbags, ABS, VSC, and HAS for additional security. From there, 3 different trims will determine who it is for. The Avanza 1.3 J, priced at 813,000, is available for individuals who seek the most cargo room and adaptability for the least amount of money. The remainder of the lineup receives all the nice stuff, including the 8-inch infotainment system, Apple Carplay, and Android Auto.



Other Features

On a lengthy voyage, what do you most want? A pleasant ride, which the Avanza provides because to its long wheelbase, which smooths out all but the worst surface flaws. The Avanza redesigned suspension system, which includes a MacPherson strut up front and a multi-link in the back, is in large part responsible for the vehicles lack of body roll in corners in spite of its soft suspension.

Despite being practical and more suited for a company, the entry-level S spec level still has all of the safety technologies and comfort options like remote central locking, power steering, and electric windows (driver). Air conditioning and motorized, color-coded mirrors are upgrades for the 1.3 SX.




Overall, the 2022 Avanza no longer has to leverage its strong brand to persuade subcompact MPV buyers. It is cozy, far more flexible, adaptable, and effective. Additionally, it features a nicer interior and an attractive appearance. But in our opinion, it truly needs more torque. In the Avanza, a few extra Newton meters would make a great difference for the drivers. To determine if it feels sufficient, we advise you to check it before buying. It is something to think about if you are shopping for a family vehicle, but once more, we believe that the all-new Avanza would be even better with more torque. A good test-ride will help you strengthen your decision when making the purchase.
