In addition, its display audio now promotes a user-friendly structure with a new navigation system helping the driver get him from where he is to where he wants to be at his convenience.

Over the years, the success of the Avanza in the Philippines has grown selling over 80,000 units since its launch in 2006. Showcasing an image of comfort and functionality, the Avanza continues to be the leader in the compact MPV segment. In short, it is a vehicle that is fit for any family or business drive. As such, the Avanza brings opportunities for families and colleagues to be closer with moments shared inside this vehicle.
