Toyota confirmed specs of the new Avensis 2.0 D-4D diesel on sale now in the UK priced from £19,445.
This is the version of the car for those worry about their wallet. Because the revised 148bhp Toyota Optimal Drive 2.0-litre D-4D engine has a combined fuel consumption of 61.4mpg and CO2 emissions of just 119g/km. These figures are 15 percent better than the previous model.
Key changes to the new engine include a new turbocharger with lower friction bearings and an electric actuator. The torque characteristics of each gear have also been adjusted and as a result, drivers enjoy greater torque at low speeds. The car also benefits from improvements in engine cooling and lubrication and the use of low rolling resistance tyres.
The new engine delivers significant savings in ownership costs through less money spent at the pumps, lower road tax and numerous benefits for fleet users. With new, longer service intervals factored into the cost equation for business motorists, new Avensis delivers a best-in-class pence-per-mile cost over three years/60,000 miles.
The car comes with satellite navigation as standard, with advanced connectivity and information features included in the Toyota Touch & Go system.
