The third and new generation of the Toyota Avanza has been unveiled in Indonesia. The Avanza was unveiled along with the Toyota Veloz and Daihatsu Xenia – the Trio, which are essentially the same car in slightly different flavors. All three models are based on Daihatsu’s DNGA platform – a budget version of Toyota’s own TNGA architecture.
The third-generation Toyota gets LED headlamps both front and back. The lower-spec E variant comes with 15-inch alloy wheels, while the G variant features 16-inch two-tone alloys.
Also available with the top-spec G are auto-retractable side mirrors and LED rear combination lamps. All variants get MacPherson struts up front and a torsion beam in the rear.
Inside, the all-new Avanza features a redesigned dashboard with a floating nine-inch (seven-inch for the E variant) infotainment display in the middle. The seats feature what Toyota calls a ‘long sofa’ mode, where the rear seats combine with the one’s upfront to create a lounge-like experience.
Other amenities available in the G trim include a 4.2-inch TFT display, a tilt- and telescopic-adjustable steering wheel with audio controls, and a push-button start.
Powering the third-gen MPV are two engine options: a 1.3-liter in-line-four with 97hp and 122Nm paired to a five-speed manual transmission on the E variant. The G gets a 1.5-liter capable of 105hp and 137Nm mated to either a five-speed manual or a CVT. For the first time in the model’s history, this version runs on a front-wheel-drive configuration.
In Indonesia, the all-new Avanza comes in five colors: Purplish Silver, Gray Metallic, Black Metallic, Silver Mica Metallic, and White. Pricing starts from 206,200,000 rupiah ($14,468) for the Toyota Avanza.
Considering that its global debut took place in a Southeast Asian country, we figure it won’t be long before we see our own official launch.
