UMW Toyota Reveal 2011 Toyota Avanza
The Toyota Avanza offered by UMW Toyota in Malaysia, has received some minor changes for the 2011 model year.
The power train options remain the same as previous models, so you still get the same 1.3 Litre lump that generates 92 hp and 120Nm of torque. The engine is coupled to either a 5 speed manual gearbox or a 4 speed automatic transmission.
Minor changes to the exterior include new body stripes for a sportier look, which can be enhanced by fitting an optional aero kit. UMW have added one new colour which is Grey Metallic that will sit next to previous colours which are White, Black Mica, Dazzling Silver and Light Green Metallic.
Toyota have dumped the beige interior in an attempt to spice up the interior, UMW saying that this change was at the request of customers who have been giving important feedback since its introduction in 2004.
Like the revised Toyota Rush, the Avanza now comes with a new 2-Din audio system with MP3/WMA compatibility and USB/AUX connectivity is now standard (available for the 1.5E, 1.5G and 1.5S)
Pricing for the revised model starts at RM62,000 for the The 1.3E manual, RM69,990 for the 1.5E automatic and RM 74,990 for the 1.5G automatic. The 1.5S automatic will retail at RM 77,990.
