Toyota Previews 2015 Avensis Ahead of Geneva Debut

toyota-avensis-facelift-geneva-3Who couldn’t be more excited about an amazing Toyota remodel!? Universal Toyota, that’s who! With all new innovative styles and the constant strive to create the perfect vehicle for you, Toyota keep raising the bar – especially with it’s 2015 Avensis!

Toyota has officially revealed images of its 2015 AvensisD-Segment family car, featuring a new front end design and a couple of new engines. Curiously, this marks the second time this third-generation Avensis has received a facelift.


The current generation Avensis was revealed back in 2008 at the Paris Motor Show, followed by a successful press launch in Milan where journalists raved about its ultra-modern styling, its spacious cabin and high quality interior.

Three years later it had already received its first facelift, which compared to what we’re looking at here, was a rather minor one. For 2015, the Avensis will take on front end features similar to those found on models such as the Auris and the Aygo – with all the design lines meeting towards the middle of the bonnet where the badge is.

The thin grille, large air intakes and dynamic looking headlights make this a more aggressive design than before – whether that’s a good thing or not, is hard to say. Some felt that the 2009 Avensis was the best looking of them all.

Still no word on what the back of the car looks like, or the interior for that matter, but inside we can expect better looking materials, a few new gadgets (such as Safety Sense active safety technology) and maybe even a new layout.

The 2015 Avensis will also come with EU6 compliant engines and possibly even a hybrid unit – similar to what the Auris and Yaris have up their sleeves. Whether all this will be enough to even slightly challenge the might of the all-new Passat and Mondeo, remains to be seen.

The full reveal will take place in March at the Geneva Motor Show.
