The Indonesia International Motor Show (IIMS) that began on August 19 with the press days where the Toyota booth showcased the updated Avanza.
The Avanza is a best selling car in the Indonesian market where three-row minivans are highly popular. Compared to the Daihatsu Xenia, its sibling model that features 1-liter and 1.3-liter engines, the Avanza offers 1.3- and 1.5-liter engines. It seems like Toyota is trying to isolate itself from their rival automaker by offering larger engine displacements.
On this day, the recently updated and restyled Avanza as well as the sporty Avanza Veloz were on display at the Toyota booth. The minor upgrade involved some significant changes to the exterior around the front end in addition to a redesigned interior.
