The Toyota Avensis entered the European market back in 1997 as a replacement for the Carina E and has been manufactured as a four-door sedan, hatchback, and even as an estate. The second generation of the Avensis ran through the 2009 model year when Toyota introduced the third-generation Avensis. On the outside, the new Avensis got reshaped and restyled headlights, a new grille design, and a much larger, sports-car-inspired air dam. The side profile remained largely the same with only some minor character lines, but the rear exterior lights saw some significant changes as well. Inside, the cabin was kept simple and clean, however, some of the interior panels weren’t exactly touch-friendly. The car came equipped with a Touch & Go Plus infotainment system that featured navigation, phone connectivity, and streaming audio. The same range of gasoline and diesel engines from the previous generation, however, some of them featured improvements here and there.

All told, this new generation sits right on that line that makes the difference between a facelift and evolution into a new generation. Either way, the Avensis is a safe car with seven airbags, active front headrests, stability control, and an optional pre-collision system. Furthermore, European NCAP gave the new Avensis a five-star rating with an overall score of 81% and a score of 90% for adult occupant safety. This is all very important considering it lives in such a competitive segment where vehicles like the Mazda6, Volkswagen Passat, Skoda Superb, and Ford Mondeo all take a pretty decent slice of the pie.

So, how does the new Avensis stack up against all of its competitors? Check out our full review below to find out for yourself.
