Recently, some photos of the Toyota Avanza 2019 facelift have been leaked online. This time, more images come out revealing the interior of this MPV.
In general, the facelift’s interior gets just some minor changes. Perhaps the most noticeable update in the 2019 model is the addition of automatic climate control - for the top-of-the-line Veloz version. Besides, a fresh infotainment screen which now joins the whole center panel.
Other modifications are still up for speculation. It is predicted that a new seat design pattern will be available but it seems that the updated Avanza will not be offered faux leather-trimmed seats. Additionally, the Avanza 2019 also receives a new instrument cluster and possibly a new set of graphics.

Toyota is applying stability control to be a standard feature on more models, so it is expected that the Avanza could be soon equipped with this safety feature.
According to the latest car news, the Toyota Avanza 2019 price leaked from Indonesia is mostly similar to the price in the Philippines. The lineup will start with the 1.3 E Standard, then the 1.3 E, 1.3 G, 1.3 Veloz, 1.5 G, and the 1.5 Veloz.
If the Avanza 2019 facelift will be officially introduced in the Philippines, it is predicted that the versions will still be similar to the ongoing model.

Until now, the Toyota Avanza 2019 facelift hasn’t been released in Indonesia where it is built. So don’t rush, it will take a while for the seven-seater to hit our shore, maybe in the middle of 2019, we think.

Know more about Toyota Avanza 2021
Toyota introduced the Avanza in 2006. It’s a new entry-level multi-purpose vehicle offering from the Japanese carmaker. The PT Astra Daihatsu Motor of Indonesia developed the Avanza and marketed it as both a Daihatsu and Toyota in its home market. The conventional front engine-rear drive layout was retained similar to the Tamaraw. However, it's a bit different from its AUV ancestors in terms of size, weight, and body. The Avanza is lighter, smaller, and car-like unibody construction. The first-gen Avanza has a simple and contemporary style. The MPV we have today is the second-generation Avanza, which landed on our shore in early 2012. It received its initial refresh in 2015, wherein Toyota gave it a more upmarket appearance. It received its second facelift in 2019 when the Japanese carmaker decided to give it a sharper and sportier look. The second refresh features new wheels, new taillights, distinct split headlights, reshaped fascia, and a new grille. The interior of the Toyota Avanza also received a full makeover. It now features a more modern dashboard with added trim detailing and sharper lines. A touchscreen infotainment system was added on higher Avanza variants during the 2015 refresh. In the 2019 update, it got an updated infotainment system and new digital air-con controls. Toyota Motor Philippines offers the Avanza with two engine options. The first option is a 1.3L engine with an output of 95 hp and 121 Nm of torque. The other one is the 1.5L power plant that produces 103 hp and 136 Nm of torque. The new Dual VVT-I four-cylinder inline 16-valve DOHC engine can be paired with a 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic transmission.
