Toyota unveiled the new 2007 model-year Avensis at the Madrid motor show today.
Outside the visual changes are subtle, with new lights and bumpers, while inside there are revisions to the dash. The more important news is underneath, with UK cars getting get two new versions of Toyota's latest generation of D-4D common-rail diesel engines.
These are the 175hp D-4D 180, which powers a new flagship T180 model, and the D-4D 130, a more powerful replacement for the previous 2.0-litre D-4D engine, with lower fuel consumption and exhaust emissions. There are also minor tweaks to the steering and suspension systems, which Toyota claims improve handling and ride.
The new Avensis goes on sale in the UK on 1 July, but prices have yet to be confirmed.
