Major overhaul of Avensis for 152-reg
A heavily-revised revised Toyota Avensis will be here in time for the 152 reg plate in July, the company has confirmed. The car will make its official public debut at Geneva next month - but they have given us a preview.
It is understood to have undergone one of the most comprehensive revisions in the history of the Japanese carmaker.
There are significant changes to how the saloon and estate look (new headlights, front bumper and bonnet).
And the chassis has also been re-worked, according to reports.
The extensive update comes as new versions of some of the Avensis' keenest rivals, such as the Ford Mondeo and VW Passat, have gone on sale here this year.
The company's design team in the south of France was responsible for the new styling.
