The new Toyota Avanza 2018 models sport two new engines that promise better fuel efficiency, better noise, vibration, and harshness (NVH) suppression, and more power. One is the 2NR-VE, a 1.5-liter gasoline engine capable of supplying 107 horsepower and 136 Nm of torque, and the other is the 1NR-VE, a 1.3-liter variant of the same engine that can produce 90 horsepower and 117 Nm of torque.
The Toyota Avanza Suspension system is made up of a MacPherson Strut at the front and a 4-Link with Lateral Control Rod at the back for all model variants.
In terms of driving performance, the vehicle translates well on city streets, but unfortunately, the short wheelbase and tall ride height tend to make the vehicle seesaw at highway speeds. And though fuel consumption is not bad at all, some car reviewers prefer having a Toyota Avanza diesel version for better fuel economy.
