Toyota will display the revised Avensis at the Geneva motor show, before UK sales start in the summer. The biggest change for the British-built model is its look, which brings it into line with the rest of the Toyota range.

The company says it will introduce new engines that will improve the car’s fuel efficiency and performance but is not giving details about these or about prices and specification levels until the show.
