June 22, 2014

Abdul Latif Jameel, one of the largest independent automotive distributors in the world, has announced the launch of the Toyota Avanza in Saudi Arabia. This marks the entry of a supremely practical vehicle set to redefine the compact Multi-Purpose Vehicle segment – highlighting Toyota’s philosophy in introducing vehicles that not only feature a host of innovative and enhanced features, but which also meet the growing demands of the brand’s most discerning consumers. Apart from its enhanced interior space with three row of seats which can accommodate seven passengers, the Avanza also offers excellent maneuverability and fuel economy.

Speaking on the occasion of Avanza’s launch, Dr. Adel Ezzat, Managing Director of Marketing at Abdul Latif Jameel, said, “The introduction of the Avanza in Saudi Arabia complements our extensive product range with a supremely versatile and practical vehicle which has a dynamic and elegant appeal with its clever design. The 7-seater Avanza provides comfortable seating for large families and offers ample luggage space even when the third-row seats are in use. This will make Avanza the preferred choice for families who are looking for a vehicle that demonstrates exceptional ride comfort and ample storage space.”

Toyota Avanza features a SUV/MPV crossover-like design that lends the vehicle a sophisticated façade. At 4,140 mm long, 1,660 mm wide and 1,695 mm high, the Avanza’s external dimensions lead into an interior that is comfortably spacious for all the passengers with ample room for luggage and third-row seating.

The 7-seater Avanza is powered by a 1.5 L engine that can churn out a maximum output of 102 HP and a maximum torque of 136/4400 Nm/rpm. Owners have the option to choose from either four-speed automatic transmission or a five-speed manual transmission to enhance the vehicle’s overall driving experience. The engine delivers a high level of performance under all driving conditions while facilitating improved fuel economy and low emissions

Avanza’s elongated window design establishes the vehicle’s dynamic and spacious design theme. A sense of newness and strength stands out with the vehicle, with reassuring lower body architecture, emphasized rocker panel and wheel flare design. The Avanza has an aerodynamically designed windshield which has been given a shallower angle, smoothening the flow of air while the rear end of the roof panel has been slanted down, separating the flow of air from the vehicle’s body. The vehicle is available in six body colors including Silver MM, Gray ME, Dark Steel MC, Light Blue ME, Champagne ME and White.

With the third-row seating, Toyota Avanza can comfortably accommodate up to seven passengers with ample space for luggage, advanced comfort for the driver and the passengers. Avanza’s seats ensure ride comfort and offer a variety of seating configurations. For the front seats, a new seat frame construction has been adopted, ensuring side support while the three-dimensional shape radiates a sense of style. The saddle-shaped headrests of rear seats unify a clean design with excellent rear visibility for the driver. Avanza’s seat upholstery reflects the use of high quality materials judiciously selected to reinforce the vehicle’s sense of functionality.

From a comfort perspective, both the driver and the passengers are ensured of a relaxing cabin with Avanza’s top-in-class dual air conditioning system which allows the temperature of the interior to be quickly adjusted for maximum efficiency. For an optimal cooling performance of the entire air conditioning system, an upper vent has been incorporated on the top of the center cluster to achieve maximum cooling for the rear seats as well.

Toyota Avanza provides maximum safety for the entire family. From the ABS (Anti-lock Brake System), EBD (Electronic Brake-force Distribution) to dual SRS (Supplemental Restraint System) airbags and three-point ELR (Emergency Locking Retractor) seatbelts, pretensioners and force limiters – the Toyota Avanza is packed with high performance safety features.
