AVANZA PANEL VAN - MADE FOR BUSINESS
All the style, comfort and quality of a great compact MPV; all the convenience and robustness of a top-notch commercial vehicle – that’s the new Toyota Avanza Panel Van, the perfect vehicle for small to mid-sized businesses which augments the people carrier models that were launched recently.
It’s worth noting, however, that the Avanza Panel Van isn’t just about life’s practicalities, it also surrounds the driver with an indulgent list of high-tech and convenience features including:
Underpinning the all-new Avanza is a completely re-worked suspension system comprising a McPherson strut suspension up front and a 5-link (4-link with lateral control rod) coil spring suspension at the rear, while the properties of the shock absorbers and springs have been optimised for comfort without sacrificing any loading ability.
Powering the new Avanza Panel Van is an enhanced version of the familiar and durable 1.3-litre K3-VE engine with VVT-i (Variable Valve Timing). By realising a weight reduction of approximately 20 kg, the new model has been able to improve on acceleration, braking performance and fuel economy.
Some vital stats include an average consumption figure of just 7,7 L/100km in the combined cycle, and a time of 11,9 seconds for the obligatory 0-100km/h dash. A five-speed manual transmission is standard fare on the Avanza Panel Van.
