Toyota Motor Philippines (TMP) has just launched the new Veloz, marking the entry of yet another people-hauler in this seven-seater-crazy market of ours.

The Veloz, as some of you may know, was once the top-of-the-line variant of the Avanza range. Now, the Veloz has been introduced as a standalone model that slides right above the Avanza in the Toyota stable. 

Toyota’s newest offering brings with it classier styling, a more premium-looking interior, and a boatload of added tech. It does, however, pack the same engine as the Avanza: a  1.5-liter 2NR-VE four-cylinder gasoline powertrain that’s capable of 105hp and 138Nm of torque. This can only be had with a continuously variable transmission.

The new Veloz starts at P1.185 million for the G variant. Opt for the higher V variant, and you’re looking at a P1.225 million SRP. With the latter, you get Toyota Safety Sense features—something that isn’t available in the Avanza lineup. You also get a wireless charging pad and a panoramic view monitor to help out with parking duties.
