The Toyota Avensis was at the forefront of the family saloon market for over two decades, its popularity based on bulletproof reliability and practicality in spades. It has a dash of style too with the interior in particular being a pleasant place to be, full of nice soft-touch materials and trims. There is a great driving position thanks to the multiple levels of adjustment in the drivers seat and steering wheel. There is plenty of room on board especially in the rear where there is enough room for three adults. There are 509 litres of space in the boot, making it about on par with the rest of its class. It is comfortable and refined on the road even when equipped with a diesel. The 1.6 D4D engine was the one that found most favour with Irish buyers thanks to its fine mix of performance and frugality.
Plenty of storage spaces, cubby-holes and USB ports
