Toyota launches the new Avensis with Toyota Safety Sense

New Avensis offers premium style and comfort as standard
Toyota Ireland is delighted to announce the launch of the much anticipated New Avensis. Offering more prestigious exterior and interior styling, advanced safety technology and lower-emission engines including a new 1.6 D-4D, the new Avensis is designed to appeal to customers looking for premium comfort and high specification, while maintaining its signature attributes of quality, durability and reliability.

The new 2015 Avensis has been designed to offer significant improvements in five key areas: Styling, Safety, Sensory Quality and Comfort, Equipment and Value for Money and Driving Pleasure and Running Costs.

Styling – Both the saloon and Touring Sports versions of the new Avensis have new, more prestigious and dynamic exterior designs. The front of the vehicle is a bold interpretation of Toyota's trademark design language, with a smaller more aggressively styled upper grille which anchors new headlamp clusters and extends the overall vehicle length by 40mm.

The lower grille encompasses a gloss black-painted bumper centre and has been significantly enlarged, pushing the fog lamps to the extremities of the vehicle, emphasising vehicle width.  The new elegant profile is further enhanced by a choice of new 16" and 17" alloy wheel designs.

Safety – In anticipation of a 5-star rating from the Euro NCAP programme, new Avensis’ safety systems have been comprehensively upgraded, bringing active safety and driver assistance to new levels. A focus on active safety technology introduces the new Toyota Safety Sense system, fitted as standard across the model range.

Processing information provided by a compact, windscreen head-mounted unit housing both a laser and a camera, Toyota Safety Sense offers customers a Pre-collision Safety system incorporating a Forward Collision Warning and featuring autonomous Emergency Braking. The Luna and Sol grades also feature a Lane Departure Alert system, Automatic High Beam and Road Sign Assist.

Sensory Quality and Comfort – interior comfort and style have been enhanced and refined resulting in a more elegant interior design. The all-new interior design offers attractive trim, finishes and colour schemes. The premium feel of the cabin is further improved by a new front seat design, ideally suited to maximise comfort on long distance journeys.

The feel and operation of all switchgear has been improved, and sensory quality is further heightened by the careful harmonisation of text and symbols, and more consistent back-lit illumination. The interior design has also been designed with robust materials which provide additional sound absorption and insulation resulting in decreased Noise Vibration and Harshness (NVH) and a smoother, quieter drive.

Equipment and Value for Money - Each grade spanning from Aura, Luna and Sol offers class-leading equipment and advanced technology such as the Toyota Touch 2 system and an 8" multimedia screen. In addition, the new Toyota Safety Sense system is fitted as standard across the range demonstrating that the new Avensis offers outstanding value for money and cutting edge safety equipment at every level of the new grade structure.

Driving Pleasure and Running Costs - the new Avensis powertrain line-up has been comprehensively revised to offer customers lower fuel consumption, CO₂ emissions and cost of ownership. The four strong engine range features two new 1.6 litre and 2.0 litre diesel engines as well as 1.6 litre and 1.8 litre petrol engines.

Both front and rear suspension systems feature significant improvements to enhance both ride comfort and handling performance, while steering feel and responsiveness has also been improved.

Steve Tormey, Chief Executive of Toyota Ireland said: “The new Avensis has a distinctly premium feel: With it’s dynamic exterior, improved sensory quality and comfort as well as class leading Toyota Safety Sense technology Avensis offers a truly rewarding driving experience. There are over 44,000 Avensis drivers in Ireland and we firmly believe that the new Avensis will be enjoyed by our current customers as well as winning new ones."


Prices start from just €25,870 for petrol and €27,710 for diesel. The new Avensis is available at Toyota dealerships nationwide.
