Toyota has just launched its 2012 Avensis and Hilux models here. The Avensis has received several interior and exterior changes. Prices start at €24,995 for the D-4D 125 (2.0 ) Terra saloon.
Designed, engineered, and built in Europe, the Avensis was first launched at the end of 1997 and has since firmly established itself in the Irish D-segment. It sold 3,368 units in Ireland in 2010, representing a 31.4 per cent segment share.
The new Avensis has a revised engine line up, and the 2.0L D-4D now in the current (pre-Budget ) tax band A, at 120g/km.
Toyota also says the Avensis gets a revised suspension and improved fuel consumption. A new Luna grade has been added and there are also increased levels of standard specification.
There is a choice of two body styles, three diesel and two petrol engines, three transmissions and four model grades.
New Toyota Hilux
Toyota has also launched the new Hilux with exterior and interior changes.
The engine line up has remained the same, but all engines have been improved. The company says they both deliver higher fuel efficiency and lower emissions across the engine line up.
