Toyota & Avanza Edit
For years, the Toyota Avanza has been a popular vehicle for buyers looking for a budget, seven-seater multipurpose vehicle (MPV). Since it was introduced in Malaysia in 2012, the Toyota Avanza has not gone through major changes other than two facelifts and its age is showing. It competes against other MPVs like the Honda BR-V and Perodua Aruz.
Toyota Avanza Variants
There are three variants of the Toyota Avanza in Malaysia. They are the Toyota Avanza 1.5E, 1.5S, and 1.5S+.
