2009 Toyota Avensis: 35 High-Res Photos and Details

The all-new third generation Toyota Avensis made its world premiere at the Paris motor show. Toyota #8217;s European flagship model will go on sale across the continent in January 2009 where it will be offered with two body-styles, sedan and station-wagon. Designed in Europe, the Avensis#8217; exterior styling is deliberately inspired from the latest generation Lexus models (which in turn take a few styling cues from the Bavarian brotherhood) as Toyota wanted to offer an executive feel to its mid-size model. While the new Avensis is definitely less boring than its boxy predecessor, it won#8217;t be winning any beauty contests. #8211;Continued

Inside, previous Avensis buyers will feel right at home as Toyota #8217;s approach was more evolutionary. The dashboard retains the wannabe-premium feel with Toyota claiming that the materials used in the cabin were chosen #8220;to express prestige and dynamism#8221;. Buyers can choose from a set of different finishes for the centre console, including black metallic paint and a titanium finish.

On higher grade models, the console has a graphic finish inspired by Takesumi, which Toyota says is a charcoal made from bamboo.

Within the range, features that will be available will include dual zone automatic air conditioning, automatic headlights and windscreen wipers, cruise control with speed limiter, full-map touch-screen satellite navigation with Bluetooth, Smart Entry and Start system, a panoramic roof for the station-wagon models and an 11-speaker premium audio system with the 10Gb hard disc drive. All Avensis models will come equipped with seven airbags as standard, including a driver#8217;s knee airbag.

Built on a new platform, the 2009 Avensis is 50mm longer than the previous generation model, giving an overall length of 4,695 for the sedan and 4,765 for the station-wagon. Both have a 2,700mm wheelbase and are 1,480mm tall #8211; the same height as the current Avensis. Thanks to the new platform, the track has been increased by between 30 and 45mm, while the car#8217;s width has grown by 50mm to 1,810mm.

The boot capacity is 509 liters for the sedan and 543 liters for the estate/station wagon.

At launch, a total of five different engines will be available including a new 147 HP 1.8-liter Valvematic gasoline unit mated to a new six-speed manual gearbox or the Multidrive S CVT transmission which can operate like a seven-speed automatic. Oddly enough, there#8217;s also a 2.0-liter gasoline engine that develops just 5HP more than the 1.8 at 152 HP. The diesel range consists of a 130 HP 2.0-liter unit and the 2.2-liter engine available with 150 and 180 HP .
