Toyota has released more images of the new Toyota Avensis, due to be revealed at the Paris motor show on 2 October.

The new British-built Avensis is seen for the first time from the front and there is also a profile of the stylish new Tourer.

The new car was styled at ED2, the Toyota design studio in the south of France.

This third generation Avensis promises a mix of superior quality, dynamic handling and refined ride comfort.

Toyota has confirmed that active and passive safety standards are brought to an even higher level thanks to advanced safety features such as Steering-assist Vehicle Stability Control (VSC+), Adaptive Front Light System (AFS) and Pre-Crash Safety System (PCS).
