    New transmission and suspension setup 

    With the new platform comes the same 2NR-VE 1.5-litre unit, which is, however, coupled with a new 7-speed CVT sequential shifting gearbox. Replacing the four-speed AT, the new gearbox setup offers an efficient power transmission for smooth and powerful acceleration and thus promises excellent fuel efficiency, as per the automaker.

    In addition, there is a new suspension setup comprising MacPherson struts at the front and a torsion beam at the rear. This ensures a seamless drive experience even with multiple passengers on rough roads, says Toyota.

    Bigger than the Avanza

    In terms of size, the Veloz is considerably bigger compared to the Avanza. The former measures 4,395 mm (+205 mm) in length, 1,730 mm (+70 mm) in width, 1,700 mm (+5 mm) in height and has a wheelbase of 2,750 mm (+95 mm). The Veloz boot space measures 498 litres (with the third row stored).
