These are the Citroen C1 and Peugeot 108 and then Japanese giant Toyota was liable for the entire mechanical add-ons and engineering for the trio. The Toyota Aygo also elements precise bodywork to support its looks, one of a kind and wonderful city car from the rival two models of French automaker.

All-new Range Of Models

Directing the attraction of the new Toyota Aygo, it’s the contrasting coloured ‘X’ throughout the nostril of the automobile, main up toward the side windows.

The entire plastics used in the cabin are robust and resilient, however they consider just right-assembled and are curiously-styled.

Toyota Land Cruiser

The Toyota Land Cruiser Is An Efficient Off-Road Vehicle

Good Enough, But Not The Class Leader.
The Toyota land Cruiser is good in performance but not exceptional one.

With go any-where ability the Toyota Land Cruiser is a good option to choose. Its bulky and strong built makes it an impressive four-by-four, but there are some exceptional models which are of its class but far ahead from the Toyota land Cruiser in durability, performance, fuel consumption, luxury and refinements such as Range Rover, Audi Q7, Mercedes GLE and impressive Mitsubishi Shogun.

The Toyota Land Cruiser in a bird’s eye view.

The Toyota as a manufacturer has focused just on its durability and toughness, but the Land Cruiser is not as luxurious as its rivals are. Without expensive and luxurious features, this big SUV stands behind from its competent rivals.

Toyota Land Cruiser Luxurious

Toyota Land Cruiser Luxurious

It is considered as the best off-road vehicle, but in town driving and motorway cruising it gives a harsh and rough driving experience. The Land Cruiser is a large SUV but it is not as roomy and spacious as it seems to be, you can feel little bit disappointment from its interior space.

Overall driving performance.

The Toyota Land Cruiser offers not a good driving experience as we find in Land Rover or other vehicles of this class. The steering-wheel is not as supportive as it should be for a big vehicle like Land Cruiser.

Driving Performance

Driving Performance

Though it is a four-by-four vehicle but not comfortable as we think. Limited engine range is not sufficient for this big and heavy vehicle. The noise problem is still there. While cruising on motorway you feel not comfortable because of bumpy suspensions.

The Toyota Land Cruiser Diesel engine range.

The 2.8litre D-4D diesel engine is available with 174bhp and 332lb/ft torque. It is an entry-level version and takes 12.3 seconds to get rom0-62m/h. the maximum speed of this engine is also not impressive with 109m/h. The fuel economy is affordable with 38m/g and Co2 emissions are 194g/km. It is fitted with six-speed automatic gearbox and four-wheel drive unit as standard.

The 3.0litre D-4D engine with five-speed automatic transmission.

The 3.0litre D-4D diesel engine with 170bhp and 302lb/ft torque. It is also the sluggish one and takes 11.3 seconds to reach from 0-62m/h with top speed of 109m/h.

Toyota Avensis

The Toyota Avensis Is Still In The Market With Its Aged But Reliable Built

When it comes to fuel economy Avensis is the Best family Car

The Toyota Avensis is one of the most trustworthy, practical and efficient saloon cars available in the market

The Toyota Avensis is a large family car and well seen Icon on the roads of UK due to its reliability and comfortable drive. This car is built in Derbyshire, UK, by the Japanese automaker Toyota since 1997.

It is not a hot cake of the automobile market because of its boring and dull look. There are far better options than Avensis but under the tag of Toyota, Avensis feels secure to capture the audience. It competes in a crowded marketplace full of very talented rivals like the Ford Mondeo, Mazda 6, VW Passat, Vauxhall Insignia and Kia Sportage.

Low running cost engine range gives Toyota Avensis enough space to breathe in the overcrowded market

The Toyota Avensis is mostly used by high annual mileage consumers because of its economical fuel consumption diesel engines. There is a 1.6 litre diesel engine known as the most frugal engine that returns up to 68m/g fuel average with emissions of CO2 at the rate of 108g/km.

2.0 litre diesel engine

2.0 litre diesel engine

This diesel engine is equipped with manual gearbox and takes the car from 0-62m/h in 11.4 seconds. As we discussed above, Avensis is the best for covering long distances where sprint is not highly concerned. Then 2.0 litre diesel engine with 141bhp is in line, a little bit quicker than its predecessor and takes the saloon from 0-62m/h in 9.0 seconds.

Overall performance of both these diesels is good. There is a 2.2 litre diesel engine, with more power of 175bhp, available in the market, though it is not as fast as anyone might expect. The gearbox seems to be setup for comfortable cruising rather than sprinting.

 Though, a single petrol engine is not enough to cover the whole range of its rivals, but economically proves it the best.

The petrol engine range is simple one with only one 1.8 litre petrol engine that comes with a manual and automatic gearbox, but the fuel consumption of this engine is very healthy and sporty for long drives.

CVT Gearbox

CVT Gearbox

It is equipped with a CVT gearbox that seems to hold the engine revs high for far too long when you accelerate and leaves you feeling quite disconnected from the car. The engine produces a power of 145bhp and a good amount of torque. It takes the car from 0-62 m/h in 10.4 seconds with manual gearbox and 9.4 when equipped with automatic gear shift system.

Overall features’ highlights of the Toyota Avensis

Each version of engine, whether in petrol or diesel, performs reasonably well and gives a smooth drive. Toyota Avensis is used as a company car so it is best considered for town and motorway driving at a reasonable speed with best fuel economy. It is a comfortable car to spend time in.

Toyota Avensis

The suspension is noticeably soft, giving a comfortable ride. The front and rear seats have enough space which provides a pleasant feel during drive. Though the Toyota Avensis remains dull in its look and the trim range is simple too, but the equipment levels are fairly generous.

Toyota Avensis

Toyota Avensis Is Highly Rated

Luxurious Outlook and Good Performance

Reliability does matter more than anything for people thinking about owning a car for their garage and Toyota is known for its long time warranty and repute of one of the best cars. Avensis engine is also upgraded and you will find improvement in certain aspects while driving it. Technology features are many and of good utility so luxuriant outlook is not alone but a cabin occupied by modern facilities is waiting for you. Then comes the concern of comfort as hard seats and element of fatigue after long hours of driving are not welcomed by customers that is why easily adjustable cozy driving seat for all is must along with same quality for other passengers. As we know it is a Japanese product so no doubt about excellence of brand that also adds confidence of buyers to opt for the new car for their use.

A Keenly Priced Automobile with Smart Range of Engines to Select from

Price is good that can be a good edge over rivals and broad the base in market of this class. Further a warranty of one hundred thousand miles or of long five years becomes an obvious reason for voting in favor of new car. Such big offer has its own impact and people cannot avoid temptation. Space in the cabin is enough to carry the number of passenger it claims and with a comfort that usually desirable. It is being the most tempting part of the fleet requires to be designed according to demands of customers.

2-0 Litre Diesel Engine

2-0 Litre Diesel Engine

Three different engines provide smart range to select the most suitable to your aspiration. The only petrol engine is 1.8 litre that offers both automatic and manual gearboxes. The other two are diesel and available only in manual speed transmissions. For economy your choice could be 1.6 litre diesel engine and for power one may go for 2.0 litre diesel engine that could easily run at high speed. Last in the list is preferred due to low C02 emission and performance is also good. The most economical in the list does not satisfy those who want speed and style at same time.

Drive Avensis to assess competitiveness of the vehicle on different roads

Driving experience is very pleasant particularly on motorways as small bumps will not disturb the vehicle but the bigger could do it for the same. Steering is good and the car gets leaned on bends so overall handling is above average. Diesel engine refinement requires further improvement as while running and staying still the noise is gruff that leaves undesirable impression.

Drive Avensis

Drive Avensis

Similarly vibration runs through steering wheel and on pedals as well. But both these untoward characteristics withered away when it cruises on. Still there is room for improvement to make it a perfect car for driving that is expected to be there in next model of the same. It is a car that is quite aggressive and safe as well so you could go for it and enjoy having it for the coming years.

Toyota Prado

Toyota Prado Engines Inspire the World

Prado is Portuguese for “meadow”. Because now Toyota is playing in the field by rendering both outstanding diesel and petrol versions of the model.

Toyota has always offered the Prado with a choice of powerful Landcruiser engines in both petrol and diesel options. The first model of Prado was available only with diesel power. The second generation of the Prado was launched in 1996, with a choice of 3.0-litre turbo diesel engines and a 3.4-litre V6 petrol.
These models were around since 2009, but this year the facelifted model has received a petrol engine with 4.0-litre displacement. We will not see other difference to the facelifted petrol engine. We see a bit changing in the diesel version, it has been re-engined, the ancient 3.0-litre engine replaced by 2.8-litre version. It is smaller but more efficient than older.

Prado Petrol engine

It is clear that the Toyota 1GD-FTV diesel engine is identical to newly-launched Hilux UTE, which was considered as the second most important and worthy vehicle in Toyota model line-up and poised to make a big push to take over the top spot in 2016. Thousands of Hilux and hundreds of Prado owners will enjoy it in future, it is the powerful Prado thing.

Prado on the Go

Prado on the Go

Is the Petrol Model a less Superior Performer than the Diesel Prado?

We shouldn’t say that. We should point out that where the three grades of diesel model like GX, VX and VX limited – the VX grade takes only petrol model and in every aspect to its diesel equivalent, apart from the fact that its $89,490 price tag is $1000 more. A six-speed automatic, attractive well identical kerb weights, rated to tow a braked trailer of up to 2500kg, we will see the described whole abilities in both powerful models.
However, some people don’t like the diesel simply – they run from the smell of fuel, maybe they object the RUCs. The petrol choice comes into the equation. That’s what, it is depending on the choice of people.
