2012 Toyota Avensis Facelift Uncovered at the Frankfurt Motor Show
SEPTEMBER 13, 2011
Carscoop (

Following a sneak preview of the updated Avensis, today Toyota went ahead and officially revealed its Opel Insignia-rival at the Frankfurt Motor Show . The facelift brings cosmetic changes both on the outside and the cabin.
While overall dimensions remain the same as the previous model, the mid-size sedan and the estate (Tourer) version benefit from a fresh face with a redesigned grille that has a chrome upper “lip” and new, narrower headlights that incorporate daytime running lights. At the rear, both body styles gain redesigned tail lamps.

The sedan also sports a new rear bumper design with a center guard and a chrome trim for the license plate, while depending on the trim level, the Avensis is offered with 16-inch steel or 17- or 18-inch alloy wheels. .

In the interior, the dashboard has received some minor tweaks to improve the ease of use of the center console switchgear, while the instruments have white instead of red backlighting. The cabin also gains new upholstery and higher quality trim on parts frequently touched by the driver or passengers, like the door grips, the switchgear and the center console.

I like the changes Toyota made to the exterior. I am still not impressed with the interior though.

This was uncovered?

About time to throw dirt back on it!

Absolutely horrible looking.
