As you know, we flew to Jakarta last week to cover the Indonesia International Motor Show. Running parallel with the IIMS is another motoring event, the Gaikindo Indonesia International Auto Show--kind of like the dichotomy between our very own Manila International Auto Show and Philippine International Motor Show.
Both the IIMS and the GIIAS are ongoing now until August 30.
At the GIIAS, Toyota Indonesia unveiled the face-lifted new Avanza. The current model, launched in our market in January 2012, does seem in need of a midlife refresh, hence this improved version. Immediately noticeable is the radically changed countenance, featuring a humongous grille that is somewhat reminiscent of the Alphard.
We think this new one is prettier than the model we have now, and we have a feeling we'll get this updated model soon. How soon? We'll let you know.
In the meantime, check out the other photos of the new Avanza.
