The Toyota Avensis is Toyota’s rival to family cars such as the Ford Mondeo and VW Passat, and it has just been given a mid-life update. One has to look hard to identify the 2012 Avensis from its predecessor by its slimmer headlights, more prominent front grille and redesigned rear lights and bumper. Yet if one were to pass you on the motorway, chances are the changes wouldn’t be noticeable.

Toyota has made more significant revisions to the 2.0-litre diesel engine, boosting fuel economy from 53.3mpg to 62.8. At the same time, CO2 emissions fall from 139g/km to 119g/km, dropping the Avensis into the lowest, 13%, diesel company car tax band. The new look is designed to show Toyota’s new family face, which features a redesigned front bumper, bolder grille and more angular headlights. Perhaps the most important changes, though, are the improvements to the best-selling 2.0 D-4D Toyota Avensis engine. CO2 emissions have been cut from 139g/km to 119g/km, which not only reduces the road tax bill by £85 a year, but also has big implications for company car drivers. Fuel economy is boosted from 53.3mpg to 62.8mpg.

Toyota has also improved the way the Avensis drives. It’s now smoother and more refined than before, and while the 124bhp power figure is unchanged, there is lots of performance for most people, with the sprint from 0-62mph taking 9.7 seconds.
