Toyota Avanza 1.5 Review
No-frills Transporter

18 Dec 2013


There’s a new MPV in the market. It’s a Toyota and if you can’t afford the top of the range Alphards and Estimas or even the mid-range Wish, then the new but not-so-new Avanza would fit your bill. The Avanza is new to the Singapore market but not to Asia. Countries like Indonesia and Malaysia have had these for years and it’s no surprise to finally see it here due to its sheer popularity.

The second generation maintains the practicality that its predecessor was built for in the first place. It has been known as the “no-frills” MPV. A glance at the Avanza makes you think that it doesn’t bare much resemblance to the current fleet of Toyotas that brim technology and sumptuous curves.

SwiftQuote helped me get the highest possible price for my car, when many dealers around were low-balling me. Very impressed with their response time and how fast I managed to sell my car. The dealer that bought my car was also very genuine and it was a fuss free process, 10/10 would recommend.
