dispose pourtant de sérieux arguments à faire prévaloir avec notamment
un large choix de motorisations et une très bonne finition

Toyota Avensis 2.0 Valvematic 2009 (Finland)
Just your basic 0-100 acceleration. I tried to look for it before buying
the car but didn't find one.
It's the Multidrive S thingie. Wagon.
Been pretty happy with it. There seems to be a debate on the wheel noise
and yea, i can confirm that it is somewhat noisy. But i guess that really
depends on what you've gotten used to. Some say that it's very silent.
Curious thing btw. In this video I really stepped on the gas as hard as i
could, so the result is that the automatic tries to keep the rpm:s very
close to the red line, but then i tried the acceleration without pushing
the gas pedal to the end, kinda tried to keep the rpm:s somewhere near
4000-5000 and i didn't notice any difference in the acceleration speed.
Both times it took around 10s.

Alterations to the British-built Avensis in 2006 saw the steering and
suspension reworked. The modifications are intended to give the family car
a sharper turn-in, and there's no doubt that the Avensis has much more
lively handling. The steering still offers very little feedback, but
drivers will have more fun than they did in the pre-facelift model. On long
motorway trips, the Toyota settles into a relaxed cruise, gliding over
rough surfaces with ease. Intrusive wind noise is the sole distraction at
high speeds. 1.8-litre and 2.0-litre petrol versions are OK but the D-4D
diesels are really impressive, particularly the range-topping T180. Using
the engine from Lexus's IS 220d, this variant is smooth and refined
throughout its rev range, and summons effortless acceleration. It's a shame
the slack gearbox doesn't like to be rushed.
It's not glamorous, striking or even particularly desirable, but the
Avensis makes great celebrity transport. That's because it blends into the
background like nothing else - if you want anonymity, the conservative
family car won't disappoint. What it previously lacked was panache; the
facelift added a dose of flair, though you'll be hard pushed to spot it
externally. Restyled lights and grille, plus indicators in the wing
mirrors, are the prime changes. Offered in saloon, hatchback or Tourer
estate form, the Avensis range today is broad and, reflecting its
popularity with fleets, focuses on the 2.0-litre and 2.2-litre D-4D turbodiesels.
The Avensis's cabin still doesn't feel special, despite facelift changes.
The centre console was tweaked but remains dull to look at, while the dour
plastics are brilliantly well assembled, but do little to inspire. The
seats remain too high as well, and rear space is nothing to shout about.
Equipment levels are high and the stereos sound good, but that wind noise
does spoil the quality feel at speed. Generous equipment levels, including
standard (if basic) sat nav on many models, will keep occupants amused,
while drivers will be pleased by the good fuel economy of nearly every
variant. Insurance ratings are very low too, though Toyota does stick to
10,000-mile service intervals: most rivals have stretched pitstops. But
retained values are OK and reliability has proven to be absolutely
superb.Toyota made its first venture into the UK car market back in the
swinging sixties, with the launch of the Toyota Corona in 1965. A decade on
from opening its two UK manufacturing bases, Toyota won European Car of the
Year 1999 for the first time with the Toyota Yaris, and in March 2006 --
just forty years on from its first foray into the UK market, Toyota
achieved its two millionth UK new car sale.
Rewarded with the 2006 Green Award from What Car? magazine for its
pioneering work in developing environmentally friendly vehicle
technologies, Toyota has shown an ongoing commitment to building cars that
address the environmental needs and challenges faced in the 21st century,
without compromising the standards of performance, safety and practicality
expected by today's motorists.
Why not find out more about the Toyota Avensis Saloon (2003 - on) by
clicking on the car review links above.The Toyota Avensis is a large family
car built in Derbyshire, United Kingdom by Japanese carmaker Toyota since
1997. It is the direct successor to the Carina E and is available as a
four-door saloon, five-door liftback and estate. A large MPV called the
Toyota Avensis Verso (Toyota Ipsum in Japan and previously the Toyota
Picnic in other markets) is built in Japan on a separate platform. The
Avensis is the basis for the youth-oriented Scion tC, which is produced for
the US market.
The Toyota Avensis was introduced in 1997, to create a more modern name
when compared with the reliable, but dull Toyota Carina E/Toyota Corona.
Like its predecessor the Avensis was reliable, and proved a sales success
for Toyota Europe. Over the years, the Toyota Avensis has advanced in size,
technology, power, and economy to challenge its rivals, like the Mazda6,
Ford Mondeo, Volkswagen Passat, Opel/Vauxhall Insignia, Citroën C5 and
Peugeot 407.Toyota introduced the Avensis nameplate on its new model, which
was launched at the end of 1997. Although an extensive revamp of the
previous generation Carina E, the only main common parts were the engines,
with an all new style of body. The car was built at the Burnaston factory
in Derby. At the same time, production of the five-door Toyota Corolla also
started at the British plant.
