What's the used Toyota Avensis saloon like?
Believe it or not, the Toyota Avensis is built in Burnaston, near Derby, which means you get to tell people that you’ve shopped local. It’s almost as wholesome as getting your weekly food shop from the farm shop. Trouble is, while buying your groceries from the very hands that grew it has a certain amount of charm, purchasing an Avensis is a much more clinical affair.
That slightly unemotional feeling is carried into the interior. While it’s hardly going to offend anyone, the disappointingly light and flimsy feeling switches and plastics might. Some of the textures are quite odd, and rivals such as the Ford Mondeo do dashboards much better. It is at least simple to use with plenty of big buttons on the infotainment system and climate controls.
