Acceleration is good but braking system is week. It is good for short ways. Body design is good but exterior appearance not impressive. Mileage is low.
We would like to suggest you that wait for new Toyota Avanza that is powered by a 1.5L 4 cylinder, DOHC, 16 valve with VVTi system. The engine churns 109PS of peak power and 141 Nm of top torque at 6,000 and 4,400 rpm respectively. The expected mileage in city from Toyota Avanza is around 15.8 kmpl and 11.2 kmpl on highway. The company has installed VVTi technology for better fuel efficiency and less carbon emissions. Overall dimension and appearance is attractive.
There is no official confirmation from Toyota regarding the Avanza's launch in India, so it will be early to comment on this. Also, Toyota already selling Innova MPV in good numbers, so it is needless to launch another MPV in the same segment.
Toyota hasn't made any official announcement regarding the launch of Toyota Avanza in India. But globally, it supports timing chain not belt. For more information on the same, stay tuned to Cardekho.
