Review Summary
The Avensis looks rather more elegant than its predecessors and the interior quality is as good as any other in this class.

AA
Review Summary
Combined with slightly improved and very pleasing interior quality, a quiet cruising ability and a thoroughly impressive amount of equipment, it's often quite easy to overlook the lacklustre engine and uninspiring drive. As a motorway cruiser it represents first-rate value for money.

Review Summary
The Toyota Avensis is a dependable, relaxing saloon car designed to cover long distances, but it struggles to compete with the best models in its class.

Review Summary
If your search begins and ends with a car that will transport you and yours quietly, safely and reliably, the Avensis will prove wholly satisfactory. There’s plenty of space inside, a decent level of equipment and residual values are surprisingly good for a mainstream D-segment car.

Review Summary
While the Avensis is comfortable, economical (so long as you choose the 2.0-litre diesel) and easy to live with, it struggles against fierce competition like the Mondeo, Mazda 6 and Insignia. Choose it if you want a reliable car with a long warranty and to keep costs down.

Review Summary
We're already a couple of facelifts into the Toyota Avensis, and the Ford Mondeo and Mazda 6 rival is showing its age.

Review Summary
The Toyota Avensis has a strong and reasonably frugal 2.0-litre diesel engine and it should outlast you.

Review Summary
Better than before with faint Lexus stylings on the exterior but still not very interesting. At all. There are better options.

Review Summary
Long warranty and Toyota’s reputation for reliability are appealing, but many rivals are more spacious, cheaper to run and better to drive.
