Toyota Avensis Reviews
Total Aggregate Score
4 / 5
The Avensis looks rather more elegant than its predecessors and the interior quality is as good as any other in this class.
3.5 / 5
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.
3.4 / 5
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.
3 / 5
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.
3 / 5
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.
3 / 5
We're already a couple of facelifts into the Toyota Avensis, and the Ford Mondeo and Mazda 6 rival is showing its age.
6 / 10
The Toyota Avensis has a strong and reasonably frugal 2.0-litre diesel engine and it should outlast you.
4 / 10
Better than before with faint Lexus stylings on the exterior but still not very interesting. At all. There are better options.
2 / 5
Long warranty and Toyota’s reputation for reliability are appealing, but many rivals are more spacious, cheaper to run and better to drive.
