Toyota Avensis Tourer – Winning is a Piece of Cake

3 April 2012

The Toyota Avensis Tourer was named as winner in the Family Estate category in the Parkers Cost of Motoring New Car Awards, 2012.

The British built Avensis, specifically the 2.0-litre D-4D TR model, came out on top based on figures collated by Parkers’ Cost of Motoring tool, which calculates the true costs associated with owning and running a new car, including fuel consumption, depreciation, servicing and road tax.

Kieren Puffett, Editor of Parkers, said: “The Parkers awards are based on statistical analysis of every new cars’ running costs, rather than opinion and the results for the Toyota Avensis Tourer show it to be very good value for money.”

“With a major new look and extensive changes for 2012, the Toyota Avensis Tourer has propelled itself to the top of its class to be best for value. New more efficient engines not only mean lower emissions but better fuel consumption and are a major improvement over the older model. That is why the Toyota Avensis Tourer 2.0D-4D TR wins the Parkers Cost of Motoring New Car Awards 2012 in the Family Estate Category.”

The Avensis was one of five British-built models honoured by Parkers.
