With the official unveiling of the new Toyota Avanza facelift just around the corner in neighbouring nations like Indonesia and Philippines, images of the MPV have been leaked online. The images shown here are for the sportier, Indonesian market Avanza Veloz variant. The design that we will be getting should be a little less extreme.
From what we can see from the images that were shared by Indonesian automotive website Autonetmagz.com, the new Avanza sports a completely fresh and bold new exterior design.
The Veloz variant seen here has design cues inspired by the Alphard and Vellfire, key exterior features on the new Avanza include split headlights, larger centre air intake, a two-tier front grille, and a chrome strip which runs across the rear.
In Indonesia, the Avanza is produced by Daihatsu and also sold under the same brand as the Xenia. The Daihatsu version features a bumper that has been redesigned, slimmer faux air outlets, as well as a more rectangular reflector strip on the rear.
Exterior details aside, no images of the interior or the engine were leaked, but it looks like the 2019 version is only a facelift and not an all-new model, which means that the current platform and engine options will most probably be retained.
It's unlikely that there will be any power gains for both options meaning it's probably going to retain 95 PS and 103 PS for the 1.3-liter (available in Indonesia) and 1.5-liter, respectively.
Transmission could still be the same five-speed manual (for Indonesia) or four-speed automatic, just like in the current model.
