Toyota Avensis 2016 interior, spy
Avensis is a model that has run great so far in the European market. But with time, this car is starting to show its age, and that calls for much needed refreshment for the upcoming 2016 model year. The Toyota Avensis 2016 is a car that would be based on a new platform and will feature few significant changes to its exterior and its interior features. Apart from the cosmetic changes, this upcoming Toyota Avensis 2016 will also boast of a new engine line-up that will maximise performance, as well as fuel economy rates.
Toyota Avensis 2016: Redesign Exterior and Interior
The Toyota Avensis 2016 will experience changes on its front that are characterised by LED headlights while daytime running lights also equipped with LED. Due to a new platform, its body shape will get longer as well as slightly lower than its previous model, thus leading to improved aerodynamics. The rear end of this vehicle also has a modified design to reflect aggressiveness and muscular posture in all their true glory. The rear lamp clusters also feature LED technology making this car standout even further from the crowd.
Interior of the Toyota Avensis 2016 also gets a similar treatment like that of its exterior and will mainly focus on upping the comfort elements more than anything else. Its seats will be upholstered with leather, and satin chrome highlighting will make its way to decorate the centre console switchgear, air vents and steering wheel to give an edge over the looks of its competitors. As you can understand, the company has made every effort to make the car’s interiors as lavish as possible. Cabin space is likely to remain same with no additional space for cargo, but that is not to be expected from a luxury end model.
Technological enhancements will feature an 8 inch colour touchscreen user interface, satellite navigation, heated seats, dual zone automatic climate control as well as an 8-speaker audio system. Premium trim variants will boast of an even more jam packed electronic configuration for tech enthusiasts.
