Toyota Avensis Review 0

The Toyota Avensis is a very reliable and practical family vehicle. The running costs are very cheap too. If you want a car that does the job and simply doesn’t let you down, the Avensis is for you.


The Safety provided within the Toyota Avensis is something to be greatly admired from any perspective. As standard the vehicle comes with stability control and active front head restraints. Within the vehicle comes front, curtain and side airbags on every model, keeping everyone as safe possible in the event of an accident.

Running costs

Keeping the Toyota Avensis on the road will not prove to be difficult financially when compared to close rivals. In terms of depreciation, the Avensis holds it value extremely well. Fuel consumption is excellent especially on the D-4D manual model which has been quoted to return a brilliant 62.8 MPG.


The 1.8 litre engine produces 145 BHP which will prove satisfactory to most. The 2.0 litre diesel produces 124 BHP with the 2.2 being quicker but is probably not worth the upgrade.

The drive

The Toyota Avensis offers a satisfying performance all round. The car is comfortable on most road surfaces. The car is not noisy at all with offers a pleasurable drive, even on the motorway. For a family car, we believe the car offers all the attributes you need.


The Toyota Avensis offers a lot of practicality. There is a lot of head and legroom with the rear floor being wholly flat, meaning that the central passenger sits in a more comfortable position. The boot does have a generous amount of room, enough to contain a large amount of family shopping and more.
