TOYOTA Motor Philippines Corp. (TMP) is set to launch the all-new Avanza on March 7 to meet the continuous rise in the local demand for commercial vehicles.

In a statement, the car manufacturer said that reservations and inquiries on the new Avanza will begin on March 1 across all authorized dealerships in the country. Select dealerships will also offer test drives to interested customers soon after the official launch date.

TMP disclosed that the 2022 iteration of the Avanza in the country will be available in four grades and five colors, with the retail price beginning at P813,000.

“TMP has been bullish in introducing compact cars in the commercial vehicle segment that will be attractive to customers looking for a reliable, efficient, plus easy and fun to drive rides,” the company said.

According to TMP, the Avanza was last refreshed in 2019. The new model joins the recently introduced Raize under a group of products designed under a new global architecture platform.

“Our mobility requirements are rapidly evolving, especially after the disruptions caused by the pandemic, but one thing remains constant — Filipinos will always need a reliable car that can offer ample, comfortable space for the family, including extended family members,” TMP First Vice-President for Vehicle Sales Operations Sherwin Chualim said.

“This has always been the strength of the Avanza, but for this 2022 release, expect even more value-for-money features on top of its striking style upgrades inside and out,” he added. — Revin Mikhael D. Ochave
