The Toyota Avanza is a front-engine, rear-wheel drive automobile produced in Indonesia and Malaysia by Toyota , who also sell the car under their Daihatsu brand. The car was launched at the Gaikindo Auto Expo in 2003 and sold over 100,000 units that year. The name “Avanza” was taken from the Italian word avanzato, which means “advance”.It is first introduced in Indonesia in 2003 to replace Toyota Kijang’s segment as a citizen family car.
A special version of the Avanza was launched in late 2004 using the new Toyota VVT-i engine, which gave the car more power. The special edition was also equipped with an automatic transmission. Only 200 units of the Avanza special edition were made.
The Avanza was restyled near the end of the third quarter of 2006 with a new grille, new bumpers, a new interior, and new front & rear lamps. The 2006 model New Avanza S also has a new engine, a 1.5 l 16-valve DOHC VVT-i gasoline engine (similar to the Toyota Rush). Only the automatic transmission model is sold in Indonesia & Malaysia.
Avanza’s 1.3 litre engine has a maximum output of 67kW(92PS) at 6,000 rpm, and the 1.5 litre engine produces 80kW(109PS) at 6,000 rpm.
However, there are complains from users that the suspension system of the MPV tends to ‘roll’ at highway speeds.The suspension is also too stiff for Indonesian roads. Therefore, the recent Avanza models have softer suspension.
The Avanza’s twin model is the Daihatsu Xenia, the only Daihatsu to use 2 types of engine (4 cylinder 1300 cc EFI similar to the Avanza’s, and 3 cylinder 1000 cc with power and torque rating at 63ps/5600rpm and 9.2kg-Nm/3600rpm). It is sold as the lower trim of the Avanza. The Daihatsu brand also has less prestige than Toyota in Indonesiahttp://www.youtube.com/v/hxLT1SZ10-s
