The 2022 Toyota Avanza will arrive in the Philippines this March 7, and reservations will open starting tomorrow, March 1. Before you reserve yours, here are the prices and variants that were shared with us from a source who wishes to remain anonymous.
As mentioned in our initial article, the Avanza will have a starting price of P813,000, and that is apparently for the base 1.3 J M/T. This variant will presumably ride on steel wheels and will mostly be catered for fleet use. This variant’s color choices also reflect that fleet orientation, with White, Silver, and Black non-metallic shades being your only choices.
Moving up from the J is the 1.3 E M/T and CVT, which are priced at P928,000 and P984,000, respectively. One of our readers was able to capture a photo of the 1.3 E Avanza, and it does reflect the Indonesian-market version. This mid-spec variant will come with 15-inch alloy wheels, LED taillights, halogen headlights, and most likely a touch screen.
Serving as the range-topper will be the 1.5 G CVT, which is priced at P1,039,000. If we were to base it on the Indonesian version, this will come with smart entry with push-button start, 16-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights, just to name a few. Regardless of which variant is chosen, the Avanza will come as standard with a feature called “Long Sofa Mode” which is basically the front seats being folded flat enough to meet the second-row seats, or the second-row seats having the ability to act as a footrest for the third-row occupants.
As for color choices, both the E and G will be available in Dark Red Mica Metallic, Silver Metallic, Black Metallic, and Greenish Gunmetal.
This list of variants also confirms our speculations. The all-new 2022 Toyota Avanza will still be powered by the same 1.3- and 1.5-liter four-cylinder gasoline engines as the previous rear-wheel drive (RWD) models. The 1.3-liter engine produces 90 hp and 121 Nm of torque, while the bigger 1.5-liter engine produces 106 hp and 137 Nm of torque. This drives the front wheels via a 5-speed manual or a new CVT that replaces the 4-speed auto.
With these prices and colors in mind, will you consider the 2022 Toyota Avanza for your next family car purchase?
