Here's a Closer Look at the 2019 Toyota Avanza (w/ 21 Photos)


As expected, Toyota Motor Philippines used its annual Road Trek media ride and drive to introduce the refreshed 2019 Avanza. The country’s second best-selling MPV model (the first being the Innova), the Avanza has sold over 100,000 units since 2006. Moving forward, this refreshed model aims to continue offering the best value proposition along with a sleeker, modern style.

Here are some of the highlights of the 2019 model:
  • The defining design feature of the 2019 Avanza is its split-type headlamp. All models except for the base 1.3 J get LED lighting, but only the 1.5-liter models benefit from front fog lamps. The 1.5-liter models also get side mirror-mounted LED turn signal indicators and 15-inch alloy wheels. The 1.3-liter models role on 14-inch wheels with the 1.3 J being on steel ones.
  • All models get the Sharks Fin type antenna.

  • The 2019 model is topped by the Veloz model. It’s differentiated from the 1.5 G model with its unique front-end treatment making it slightly longer. Aside from that, it swaps the regular exterior chrome highlights for smoked chrome ones.
  • All but the 1.3 J offers three rows of seats, with the second row offering a 50/50 split folding and sliding mechanism.

  • Powering the 1.5-liter models is the 2NR-VE engine making 103 horsepower and 136 Nm of torque, while the 1.3-liter models get the 1NR-VE with 95 horsepower and 121 Nm of torque. The available transmissions are a 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic.
  • The 1.5-liter models debut a new 6.8-inch WVGA display audio system with smartphone mirroring. It can pair with 2 devices for handsfree function and 5 devices for music streaming. All 1.5-liter models also get the added convenience of steering wheel controls, but only the Veloz gets a leather steering wheel.

  • All models get a tilt adjustable steering column.
  • All models now get dual SRS airbags and ABS with EBD as standard. ISOFIX child seat anchors are also standard across the entire line-up, but only the 1.5-liter models get an alarm and immobilizer system.
