The lines of the Avensis has become more exciting. The new spirit you look less successful in the interior. Here, the European product management could become more involved.

Although the materials of the interior are better, the design around an elegant, electronics more powerful than its predecessor. Europeans want to now be able to see and experience the value of your car in the car. Who climbs a Avensis for the first time, is therefore surprised by the rather plain appearance.
