2006 Toyota Avensis Facelift

ALTHOUGH Toyota tried hard to keep it a secret, unfortunately, the first photographs of the 2006 facelifted Avensis have leaked in the internet.

The light restyling seems to be concentrated at the front end which looks a bit more dynamic thanks to the redesigned bumper, the different light clusters and the new mask. Also, the turning lights are now incorporated in the exterior mirrors.

In the cabin, among others, the facelifted Avensis gets better quality plastics and a refreshed centre console which stacks a new MP3 system.

As for driving dynamics, changes in the design of the rear axle promise to improve Avensis’s mediocre road handling. Finally, the 2.0 Turbo Diesel gets a power lift, producing 125 Hp (from 116 Hp). Sales of the facelifted Avensis should start in Europe at the end of June.
