Starting at the front, the Avanza sports thoroughly redesigned headlights, an all-new chrome embellished grille and a new front bumper with a larger airdam. Changes at the rear include new reflectors which appear like split taillights, and a chrome garnish for the registration plate enclosure.

The Avanza facelift is unlikely to see any mechanical updates. The Ertiga-rivaling MPV is offered with 1.3- and 1.5-liter four-cylinder VVT-i engines with manual and automatic transmissions. The 1.3-liter engine is good for 92 PS and 119 Nm of torque while the 1.5-liter unit produces 104 PS and 139 Nm of torque.
