The Top Gear car review:Toyota Avensis

£18,650£27,280
4/10
Overall verdict
Better than before with faint Lexus stylings on the exterior but still not very interesting. At all. There are better options.
 

For: 

Well built, well equipped, reasonably fuel-efficient and reliable

Against: 

Tragically dull, poor automatic gearbox, feels old next to newer, more able rivals

Overview

What is it?

Yes, you can still buy a brand new Toyota Avensis. We know, us neither. In true Toyota fashion, it’s about as much fun as a 50-plus swingers party. That said, the Avensis is not without merit.
