UMW Toyota Motor Sdn Bhd (UMWT) has introduced a new variant of the popular 7-seater Avanza MPV called the Avanza 1.5X and it is priced from RM82,700 excluding insurance, for private registration in Peninsular Malaysia.
The new variant has a more rugged appearance, with black coloured extensions on the front and rear bumpers with silver mouldings as well as black over-fenders and side cladding. These extensions help to visually give the Avanza a lower stance. The rear lights has new rear combination reflector units that fill up the space on the tailgate to provide a stylish touch at the rear end of the Avanza 1.5X.
Also available as optional accessories are a Roof Ornament and 16″ alloy rims with a unique design.
Buyers can also opt to upgrade their infotainment system to either the DVD-AVX or DVD-AVN systems. Both come with large touchscreens and reverse camera displays, but the DVD-AVN includes an internet browser, which requires a WiFi internet connection, and GPS navigation.
The Avanza 1.5X is mechanically unchanged, with a 1.5 litre engine producing 104 hp and 136 Nm of torque. The interior too, remains unchanged with a dual blower air-conditioning system for faster cooling, 50:50 split-folding second and third row seats, 3-point seat belts for all passengers as well as two ISOFIX points on the second row for compatible child seats.
The Toyota Avanza has a 5-year unlimited mileage warranty which is available for the next owner within the first 5 years, should you sell it off.
The new Avanza 1.5X is already on sale but is only available for viewing from 24 February onwards when during the Toyota Weekender event at showrooms.
