The second-generation Toyota Avensis went on sale in early 2003 with a completely new solid design. The 1.6, 1.8 and 2.0-liter petrol and 2.0-liter turbodiesel were taken from an older version. The new engine is a 2.4-liter taken from the Camry model. It is the largest Toyota sedan sold in the European market, and it is also the first Avensis exported to Japan. Toyota Avensis stands out with modern technology and the highest level of comfort and safety - everything you would expect from a model in this class.
In the 2004 European Car of the Year election, the Avensis was left in the top three, including the Fiat Panda (winner), Mazda3 and Volkswagen Golf.
 
In 2004, the Toyota Avensis became Ireland’s Car of the Year.
 
What Car? Magazine named the Toyota Avensis the best family car in 2004 and 2005.

Car description
Real mileage passed 90.000 miles, with 6-speed gearbox and standard equipment; the day I bought it not much damage was done to the car. If to describe it briefly, it’s a typical pensioner’s car. When I told to my friends abroad that I had changed BMW to Avensis, all of them were making a mock of me.
Performance
Toyota Avensis Saloon 2.2 D-CAT 2231cc, 130 kW. power and economy ratio, to my mind, is some kind of misunderstanding. Now since I consider this car as meant to be designed only for pensioners no surprise that it lacks on traction. Fuel consumption, to my mind, is just irrational. My driving is about 70% / 30% highway/city (usually at 60 mph), average speed in winter – 37 mpg; in summer – 40 mpg. Once I drove at 80-100 mph on the highway, my fuel consumption increased up to 30 mpg – as for diesel this was insane. It seems that the problem is not with the diesel engine, but most likely with a diesel particulate filter (DPF). If to remove it, fuel consumption becomes “rational”.
Reliability, running costs
During a 7-month period, I had only one problem, i.e. to change a low beam bulb. Although I’ve passed 12.000 miles so far, it seems that Avensis still holds its value.
Recommendations to buyers
It’s obvious to me that this vehicle is good for travelling from point A to point B. If you are looking for such type of a vehicle, then Toyota Avensis will be the appropriate choice for you.
