Mileage Running Cost

Toyota Avanza is widely acclaimed for its fuel efficient engines and this time also the Avanza has sustained its legacy delivering a pretty decent mileage for a dedicated 7-seater offering around 13.0 km/l (figures for 1.5-litre engine). The fuel tank capacity of the all new Avanza stands out to be 45 liters.

Engine & Fuel Consumption

The new Avanza carries the new Dual VVT-i engine which is available in 1.5L and 1.3L variants. Although it produces the same maximum output in torque and horsepower with the previous power plant but proffer a better torque early on that can result to better fuel efficiency. The 1.5 litre 4-cylinder In-line, 16-valve DOHC, Chain Drive with Dual VVT-i ensures better mileage, acceleration and overall engine performance. This dedicated engine brings out a maximum output power of 105 PS at 6000 rpm inline with a maximum starting torque measuring 136 Nm at 4200 rpm. The base variants (auto and manual transmission) employ a 1.3 Litre 4-cylinder In-line, 16-valve DOHC, Chain Drive with Dual VVT-i with a maximum output power is 97 PS at 6000 rpm in line with a maximum starting torque measuring 121 Nm at 4200 rpm.

Acceleration and Pickup:

Being a 7 seater MPV the Toyota Avanza cannot deliver an adrenaline rushing acceleration but still the car delivers a decent pick up. With the 1.5-litre petrol engine on board of the Avanza can cross 100kmph mark in an estimated 13.5 seconds. The car can go upto a top speed of 165kmph on the tachometer. While talking about the 1.3-litre variant, we suppose it is little underpowered for the big MPV. With this the car takes 15.8 seconds to reach 100km/h.

Braking & Safety

The Toyota Avanza comes with a very efficient braking system. The front brakes are loaded up with disc brakes while the rear uses a drum brake. The braking system lies in tandem with the suspension of the Avanza making the ride smoother and safer.The MacPherson Strut suspension with stabilizer applied on the front along with a torsion beam suspension on the rear are more than enough to maintain a perfect balance of fuel economy and handling capabilities. Ventilated disc brakes are applied on the front with solid disc brakes getting the rear position to add up to your safety.


While focusing on the aesthetics, Toyota has made sure that safety is not compromised. It comes with several safety features to keep both the driver and the passenger safe in case of any mishap. All the basic safety features employed in a topend Toyota are employed in Avanza too which includes an Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) which is coupled with EBD (Electronic Brake-force Distribution) this does not allow wheel lock when the conditions of roads are slippery. The body is made with Toyota forte GOA designing which in the case of collision dissipates the impact force throughout the vehicle to minimize injury to occupants. With reverse sensor, ISOFIX and siren immobilizer security system Toyota Avanza is really as safe as it could be.

    It has been more than two years now that I own a Toyota Avanza 1.5G AT and I am in no mood to go for a new car anytime soon. Apart from a stiff suspension, and being a bit underpowered when accelerated above 100 kmph, the Avanza is a great buy. It offers a good mileage and is also easy Read More
