Toyota Avensis is considered to be one of the most desirable vehicles at the European market. Since the current model is showing its age, the company decided to launch a revised mid-size model, 2015 Toyota Avensis. With its new engine, innovative technology and excellent style, brand-new Toyota Avensis will win the hearts of a great number of customers. This is understandable because the company put a lot of effort into the production and design of this model. The new, prestigious model will arrive completely revised, so we will get a revised chassis, and refreshed interior together with changes to the exterior of the vehicle. Besides these changes, the car is going to use new engines as well. Let’s now check the details about these changes.
2015 Toyota Avensis engine specs
New Toyota Avensis run a 1.8-liter that produces 145 hp. It is quite possible that the new model will be powered by the same engine. Some more powerful engine will run BMW sourced engines that were developed by Toyota and BMW for the new Mini. This 1.5-liter turbocharged inline four will be able to produce 180 hp. The most powerful engine choice will be 2.0 that will enable the vehicle to get the output of 240 hp. These new engine choices will ensure great fuel efficiency and reduce the emission of CO2. Six or eight-speed automatic transmission will be optional, while six-speed manual is going to be a standard gearbox. Unfortunately AWD won’t be available but we hope that all-wheel drive will be available in some future models.
