Toyota Motor Philippines Adds a Sporty Avanza Variant Called Veloz


Toyota Motor Philippines is adding a sporty variant to its Avanza compact MPV with the introduction of the 2018 Avanza Veloz.

Picking up from where the 1.5G A/T left off, the Avanza Veloz shows off the Avanza’s sportier side with variant-specific front and rear bumpers, grille, and smoked chrome lamp garnish and back handle. It’s available in four colors to complement the spiffy looks: Red Mica Metallic (new) Black Metallic, Silver Metallic, and White.

Inside, the 2018 Avanza Veloz gets serious with its all-black interior. It’s complemented by the upgraded fabric seats and door trim, leather on the steering wheel and shift knob, chrome interior door handle and air conditioning vents, and a 2-DIN touchscreen audio system with GPS navigation.


Mechanically, the Avanza Veloz remains unchanged from the 1.5G. It’s powered by a Dual VVT-i motor with 102 horsepower and 136 Nm of torque. The sole transmission for this variant is a 4-speed automatic.

The 2018 Toyota Avanza Veloz retails for P 1,025,000. The other variants of the Avanza remain on the sale: 1.5G A/T – P 958,000; 1.5G M/T – P 915,000; 1.3E A/T – P 839,000; 1.3E M/T – P 796,000; and 1.3J M/T – P 707,000.

  3. Perfect canvas for "limited edition" "sport edition" decals, stick on chrome and oversized TRD stickers.. Your standard BADUY package for that perfect SUCKER look.

  4. Sporty? LOL, I laughed my ass off and cringed. So lame. If you want an affordable real sporty car, get the Mazda 2 or the Hyundai Accent diesel, though the steering feel of the Accent feels dead.

  6. Pffffft... so this is it, your "game changer"?? No wonder Ertiga's are taking over, and wait till they bring in the diesel variant. LOL

  7. Toyota better hear us out. Everyone here is saying the upgrade ain't good enough. Why not give the old Avanza a 6 or 5-speed automatic transmission to better compete with the times? Or just probably add some inexpensive rear backup sensors and dash cam recorders? An old Avanza owner can get his ride as attractive as the one they're trying to offer here through aftermarket parts by his own, maybe better. Come on Toyota! Give it something worth mentioning. Right now you're like "Hello BRV!" and Honda's like "What? Didn't hear you!"

    1. Or get a crosswind instead.

      Delete
    2. Juice ko! May nag papaloko paba sa crosswind? Mag Avanza Veloz nalang ako.
      Guys OK na ito Veloz, baka madagdagan pa crosswind sa kalye.

      Delete
    3. My bro from a frat says their crosswind is the best. Bilib daw talaga siya. I asked him why, sabi niya basta bilib lang talaga siya. I was like, ok whatever.

      But that was long ago, he was only 17 years old back then. Baka nasabi niya yun kasi yun pa lang alam niya imaneho.

  14. Overpriced yet underspec'd.

    Other carmakers are doing their best to improve their products while here is Toyota, resting on its laurels. Toyota won't stop offering this kind of a sh*t of a car unless us Filipino's stop patronizing them.

  15. I've ridden these solo at the back seat and boy the suspensions feel they are barely there. You can feel and hear concrete aggregate being rolled over by the tires.

  16. Brochure and Specs. Please lang po.

  17. they should've slapped a 1.8 to 2.0 engine in there and add a bit of safety features aside from bodykits or a new bumper just to call it sporty.

  18. Jeskelerd toyota...

  19. Not that bad based on Oto Driver YouTube review of Veloz 2015. Toyota should have released this together with Avanza right from the start to give Avanza a better image here in PH. This will be a hard sell from the start but would choose this over Ecosport or Mobilio.
