TOYOTA ANNOUNCES PRICING FOR NEW AVENSIS

  • All-new car launched in the UK on 1 March and available in saloon, hatchback and tourer bodystyles
  • On the road prices from £13,995 for T2 saloon/hatchback up to £21,495 for T Spirit tourer with sequential automatic gearbox
  • Available in five different specification grades (T2, T3-S, T3-X, T4 and T Spirit) offering a wide choice of equipment
  • Two petrol engines available from launch (1.8 VVT-i and 2.0-litre direct injection) with 2.0-litre direct injection diesel available in May

The new Toyota Avensis will go on sale in the UK on 1 March. Prices will range from £13,995 to £21,495. Available in three bodystyles and five different grades, the new Toyota Avensis will offer a wide choice of specification and a high level of standard equipment right from the entry 1.8-litre T2 .

An all-new car, the Avensis will set new standards in the segment with its precision build, excellent ride, handling and performance qualities. It will also offer class leading levels of equipment, safety and value in the upper-medium (D segment) family car class, one of the most competitive in the market with one of the most demanding customer groups.

The T2 grade offers nine airbags, including SRS knee airbag – a unique Avensis safety feature – air conditioning, alarm/immobiliser with double locking, eight speaker audio system with cassette, CD tuner and steering wheel controls, Optitron instruments and exterior colour keying.

The 1.8-litre T2 is better value than competitors such as the Ford Mondeo 1.8 LX, Vauxhall Vectra 1.8 LS and Renault Laguna 1.8 Authentique which would cost between five and eight per cent more to specify to the same level as the Avensis.

The T3-S grade from £15,495 (1.8-litre VVT-i with manual gearbox) adds 16-inch alloy wheels and Toyota’s highly praised “turn-by turn” satellite navigation system with Electronic Traffic Avoidance (ETA).

For the same price, the T3-x grade is available without turn-by-turn navigation, but includes a different design 16-inch alloy wheel, auto air conditioning, rain sensor wipers, heated retractable door mirrors, improved interior trim and front fog lamps. The 2.0-litre direct injection model is fitted as standard with Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) and Traction Control (TRC).

To specify a Ford Mondeo 1.8 Zetec to the same level as a 1.8 T3-x would cost over £1000, or eight per cent more as it is not fitted with rain sensor wipers, dual zone air conditioning, auto-dimming rear view mirror or colour keyed bumpers as standard. Neither the Renault Laguna 1.8 Dynamique nor the VW Passat can match the new Avensis standard equipment levels. (Specification comparison charts of the new Avensis versus its main competitors can be found at the end of this release.)

The T4 combines the specification features of the T3-S and T3–X grades and adds 17-inch alloy wheels. The top-of-the-range T Spirit grade emphasises luxury, offering leather trim and electrically operated front seats with lumbar support and cruise control on top of the T4 specification.

Options include full colour map DVD satellite navigation, available as an option from the T3-X grade upwards.

The new Avensis, in line with all other current Toyota models will be offered with a three- year/60,000mile warranty, three-year paint and 12-year anti-perforation warranties. Major service intervals will be every 20,000 miles with a lubrication and safety “Health Check” required every 10,000 miles.
