With the launch of the 2007 Avensis, Toyota reveals a fully competitive diesel engine range that will drive forward the company’s growth in the European market. A choice of three D-4D diesel engines will be available from the Clean Power range: an all-new 2.0-litre D-4D 125, the 2.2-litre D-4D 150 and, at the top of the range, the state-of-art 2.2-litre D-4D 180.
With these outstanding engines Toyota expects to increase the mix of diesel sales of the Avensis from 44% in 2005 to 54% in 2007. At the same time, the roll-out of the new generation D-4D engines across other models in the line-up will power the growth of Toyota in this important global market.
The brand-new 2.0-litre D-4D 125 is an important development in the evolution of the new generation Toyota diesel engines. Derived from the advanced 2.2-litre D-4D units and sharing much of their technology, it delivers excellent power and fuel economy to satisfy customer demand for refined driving performance.
Thanks to the application of latest generation technology and reduced engine weight, the D-4D 125 will offer customers better performance, lower fuel consumption, low noise levels and reduced emissions.
Installed in the 2007 Avensis, the D-4D 125 will achieve best-in-class performance with highly competitive, low CO2 emissions of 146 gr/km (in combined cycle). The engine develops 93 kW (126 DIN hp) and 300 Nm of torque with the torque output flat from around 2,000rpm to 2,800rpm. The new D-4D 125 engine will be available in two versions: a D-4D 125 with diesel particulate filter (DPF) will be suitable for countries where incentives are in place for low particulate emissions. Other countries may wish to adopt the D-4D 125 with an oxidation catalytic converter (CCo).
Both engines comply with current Euro IV diesel emission regulations and offer exactly the same output and performance. But the different approaches to emissions control require different fuel
injection strategies and different exhaust technology. The 2007 Avensis will be available with six speed manual transmission as standard on all dieselengine models.
The refined driving pleasure of the 2007 Avensis is further emphasised by the comprehensive range of petrol engines and optional transmissions which are now available with the full model line-up.
All the petrol engines offer advanced technology to increase driving performance, reduce fuel consumption and harmful emissions. At the same time, they offer levels of refinement that are unmatched in the upper-medium segment.
For 2007 the Avensis will be available in Europe with a choice of four petrol engines: 1.6 VVT-i, 1.8 VVT-i, 2.0 direct injection and, in selected markets, 2.4 direct injection. There will also be a choice of five-speed manual, four speed automatic or five speed automatic (2.4-litre only) gearboxes with the petrol engines.
