by | Lifestyle

Toyota Motor Philippines has welcomed a new addition as it released the latest variant of Toyota Avanza last October 5.

The Toyota Avanza Veloz is the new variant of the high-selling mini multi-purpose vehicle (MPV) by the Japanese automotive manufacturer.

Avanza Veloz looks sportier than the usual MPV with its smooth aero grille and sports bumper combo.

The rear of Toyota’s new MPV has a smoked chrome lamp garnish and back handles with its own sports bumper.

Inside Avanza Veloz is an all-black fabric on its seven seats. Additional features inside the vehicle are door trim, chrome door handles, a leather shift knob, plated A/C air outlets, and an audio and navigation display.

The car is also powered by a 1.5-liter engine, which is also found in the Avanza 1.5 G. This puts out 103hp and 136Nm paired to a four-speed automatic tranny.

Avanza Veloz comes in different shades including Black and Silver Metallic, White, and a new Red Mica Metallic.

The car’s price is P1,025,000, which could be considered as a hefty amount since it is the most expensive in the lineup. Avanza Veloz is also the only variant with a price of over P1 million.
