Toyota Avensis (2009 - 2015)
Last updated 18 April 2016
2010 Toyota Avensis 2.0D-4D reported as blowing blue/grey smoke from the exhaust but only when going uphill, otherwise runs fine. Owner replaced EGR to no effect and then blanked off EGR, also to no...
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.
