Efficient new 1.8 Valvematic petrol engines almost as economical as diesels. Excellent Multidrive S CVT. Good quality ride. Very reliable.
Dull image. No hatchback. Not as much fun to drive as a Mondeo or Mazda6.

Introduction

Leaner, greener Avensis. With new, more powerful, and higher revving, yet more economical, lower emission petrol engines, while diesel engines develop more torque at lower revs to give better real world economy.

This translates into benefits for company car providers and BIK taxpayers because all 1.8 petrol models, including the CVT auto, and all diesels except the D-4D 150 auto and the 180 T-Spirit Tourer come in under 160g/km. And at 154g/km CO2 the BIK percentage of list price of the new 1.8 Valvematic goes down from the 25% of the old Avensis 1.8 to 18% for the new one.
