Toyota is seemingly planning to shake up the compact MPV market in the near future as what appears to be the updated or next-generation Avanza was leaked ahead of its launch.

Uploaded by Youtube user Febri Ardani, the internal Toyota video of the supposedly updated Toyota Avanza features a more sophisticated front fascia along with a revised rear end. The headlights have been reshaped to give it a simpler yet more matured look. The grill on the other hand now conforms to the brand’s current design language and consists of a four-bar finish.

Also seen up front is a new hood, new front fenders and a slightly altered front bumper.

The rear taillight clusters appeared to have been carried over though the tailgate gets a slight change as it now has matching stop light trimmings and chrome décor.

Aboard, the cabin also receives an update as high-tiered models of the 7-seater MPV get a tablet-inspired infotainment system. Additionally, the seats are upholstered in brown fabric and the infotainment supports Bluetooth audio streaming.

Official engines for the new Toyota Avanza remain a mystery however. The current generation Avanza is fitted with 1.3-liter and 1.5-liter VVT-i gas engines.

There is no exact date yet when will Toyota launch the updated 7-seater MPV.

It is very likely that the next-gen Avanza will continue to share its platform with the Daihatsu Xenia.
