Toyota Avensis Gets Touch and Go Plus

Touch and Go Plus 1 at Toyota Avensis Gets Touch and Go Plus

The new Toyota Avensis itself is not a Touch ‘n Go kinda car. It’s actually quite benign. But it gets the company’s latest Touch and Go Plus infotainment system.

The Touch and Go integrated multimedia and navigation system comes as standard with the T Spirit models, but you have to pay extra for it with the entry level Avensis.

But it’s worth it because the system has features such as access to email, advanced traffic data improved mapping, and voice recognition, as well as a more sophisticated satellite navigation mapping that incorporates 3D city modelling and landmarks, and an additional Traffic Patterns database which shows the average speed on sections of a programmed route, according to the time, day and month. The system includes three years’ free map and software updates.
