Buyer's notes

Target Price team says:

The Toyota Avensis Tourer won’t be your idea of a dream car, but most versions are a great real-world proposition. Choose the right model and you’ll have a car that’s practical, comfortable and easy to live with.

You're best off sticking with the 2.0-litre diesel, because the other models aren't much quicker and cost more to buy and run.

Icon trim offers the best balance of equipment and price. It comes with dual-zone climate control, Bluetooth, cruise control and a rear-view camera. You also get a touch-screen multimedia interface; it’s pretty simple to use and gives access to the audio and Bluetooth systems, as well as sat-nav with a Google local search function.

So, unless you simply must have leather trim and electric seats, we’d recommend Icon over the pricier Excel version.
