Mzansi’s well-received Toyota Avanza MPV has been afforded with a refreshed look, aimed at upping the ante within its respective segment.
For 2019, only the range topping TX model has received some minor but notable cosmetic updates, with the mechanics remaining untouched. Exterior updates come in the form of revised front and rear bumper designs, new split-level LED-headlamps with vertically-arranged air-dams and fog lamp garnish. A stylish body-coloured accent strip divides the headlamps and creates a border between the chrome upper and black lower-grille sections. More aerodynamically-shaped exterior mirrors, shark-fin antenna and turbine-shaped 15” alloy wheels further complement the styling changes. Moving to the rear, a new rear boot spoiler, revised taillamps (with clear elements) and chrome accent strip help the new TX model stand out. New exterior colours are also available. The S and SX grades retain their current exterior design and packaging.
Interior updates come in the form of the rotary-dial-type HVAC controls to push-button control with digital readout. In line with customer requests the interior trim has been changed from light grey to dark grey. Front and rear 12-volt accessory connectors have been fitted as standard.
