  • Toyota Avensis (2009 - 2015)
    Hugely practical and robust, refined and quiet on the move, excellent diesel engines, especially the 2.0 D-4D, very reliable.
  • Toyota Avensis (2003 - 2009)
    Solid car. Sophisticated multi-link suspension deliberately unstressed for long life. Quite quick T180 diesel from July 2006.
