Toyota’s Avensis range of saloons and tourer estate cars receives a gentle refresh for 2013. Following the lead of Auris and Verso, it adopts Toyota’s new grade structure, with Active Icon, Icon Plus and Excel replacing the previous T2, TR, T4 and T Spirit designations.

Like for like, the new models carry over the previous specifications, with a few adjustments. Across the range all Avensis now feature follow-me-home headlights as standard. There is an audio upgrade for all models bar the entry-level Active with the introduction of a DAB digital tuner. And for Excel versions there is a new brushed silver finish for the centre console.
