The Toyota Avanza is a mini MPV designed and produced by Daihatsu Motor in Indonesia and marketed by Toyota Motor across the world. It was first launched in 2003 and was also produced by other automakers like Perodua of Malaysia and FAW of China. However, after the launch of the second generation in 2011, it is exclusively being developed by Daihatsu Motor. This MPV is also known by Daihatsu Xenia and FAW Senya. The Avanza is a perfect family car and is also used for commercial purposes (mostly public transportation). Currently, Toyota Indus is offering Avanza in six color options. There is only one trim level and very few options available. Besides Pakistan, other key markets for Avanza include Philippines, Bangladesh, Thailand, Lebanon, Brunei, UAE, Egypt, Sri Lanka, Peru, and Mexico. Let’s find out more in our Toyota Avanza review.
