Toyota Avensis Tourer road test report

Toyota Avensis Tourer

The Avensis saloon was roomy, well constructed, reliable and extremely safe. The Avensis Tourer is every bit as good but with the added bonus of the extra load capacity. You could describe the Avensis Tourer as a stylish work-horse for those who want a reasonably priced estate car.
