While SUVs are an extremely popular choice, if you drive primarily in the city you may want to opt for something more compact. A mini MPV (Multi-Purpose Vehicle) is a versatile alternative with the practicality of an SUV but with greater efficiency and a more city-friendly size.
The Toyota Avanza ticks all the right boxes for a compact MPV, making it the perfect family car as well as a great all-round vehicle for city life and weekends away. The Toyota Avanza price point also makes it an economical choice, particularly if you’re shopping for a new car on a budget.
Pushing out around 103bhp and 100lb-ft of torque, its 1.5ltr, four-cylinder engine is small but efficient. The choice of a four-speed automatic or five-speed manual transmission makes it suitable for all drivers. The spacious cabin has plenty of room for up to five people, with a surprisingly spacious boot. The second-generation Avanza underwent a considerable cosmetic makeover, and the Toyota Avanza 2019 model has a sleeker, more stylish exterior and a plush interior.
This is a practical, everyday driver that works equally well if you’re planning a road trip. The large cabin gives you all the comfort of a more expensive SUV, and while you won’t win any drag races with the Avanza, you will keep your petrol consumption down to reasonable levels, which is lighter on your wallet.
