Toyota Avensis

The Toyota Avensis is a mid-size/large family car built in Derbyshire, United Kingdom by Japanese automaker Toyota since 1997. It is the direct successor to the European Carina E and is available as a four-door saloon, five-door liftback and estate. In Japan, the Avensis is exclusive to Toyota Netz dealerships, and serves as the largest sedan offered. A large MPV called the Toyota Avensis Verso (Toyota Ipsum in Japan and previously the Toyota Picnic in other markets) is built in Japan on a separate platform. The Avensis is not sold in North America, where the Camry sells better, but is related to the Scion tC coupe. It also shares a platform with the Toyota Premio and the Toyota Allion.

The Toyota Avensis was introduced in 1997, to create a more modern name when compared with the Toyota Carina E/Toyota Corona. The Avensis proved a sales success for Toyota Europe. Over the years, the Toyota Avensis has advanced in size, technology, power, and economy to challenge its worldwide-known rivals, such as the Mazda6, Ford Mondeo, Volkswagen Passat, Opel/Vauxhall Insignia, Citroën C5, Peugeot 508 and Škoda Superb.

The Avensis name is derived from the French term avancer, meaning "to advance." Avensis also means "to carry away" in Latin.
