Just a few weeks ago, the next-generation Toyota Avanza was leaked over the internet. However, the model that was leaked last time was the top trim Veloz variant, which features a number of distinct exterior styling elements that will definitely set it apart from the standard Avanza.
Now though, we’re now able to see what the standard Avanza will look like, thanks to these photos from Indra Radian Fathan. Thankfully, while it does not get the Veloz’s mesh grille and aggressive front bumper, the overall design is still largely the same. The standard Avanza is still a significantly better-looking MPV compared to its frumpy predecessor.
The side profile seems to look almost unchanged, while the rear on the other hand, gets two separate taillights instead of the Avanza Veloz’s single unified piece. The rest of the rear fascia is also more conventional compared to the Veloz’s sporty rear bumper with a faux diffuser.
No photos of the standard Avanza were leaked, though we expect it to have the same interior, albeit with less embellishments and a simple color scheme.
With rumors suggesting the Avanza’s move towards a front-wheel drive (FWD) unibody platform, the most likely candidate for this would be the DNGA (Daihatsu New Global Architecture) that’s designed for Daihatsus or Toyotas for emerging markets. This could mean that the next-generation Avanza could be powered by a 1.3-liter inline-3 turbo gasoline engine producing 98 hp and 140 Nm of torque. Again, nothing is confirmed at this point, so do not take our word yet.
Another possibility is for the next-generation Avanza to use the same engine as the current Toyota Vios, with either a 1.3-liter or 1.5-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine being offered. This could be mated to the same 5-speed manual or CVT found in the Vios.
The next-generation Toyota Avanza is expected to make its global debut on November 10 at the Gaikindo Indonesia International Auto Show (GIIAS)
