The facelifted Avanza features a bold chrome bar connecting the new swept-back headlights that flow into a larger grille, and has a sportier front bumper.

Inside, the Toyota Avanza has a design similar to the outgoing model, but with upgraded equipment and new trim options. The top-end TX features a double-din music system, power windows for the front doors, dual-zone HVAC system, ISOFIX rear seats, and fabric seat upholstery.
Under the hood, the lower variant is powered by a 1.3-liter gasoline engine with dual VVT-i, which produces 96.5 hp and 120 Nm of torque, and is paired to a 5-speed manual gearbox. Also on offer is a more powerful 1.5-liter 2NR-VE gasoline engine, which delivers 104 hp and 137 Nm, and is paired to a 5-speed manual or a 4-speed automatic.
