sgCarMart – The Avanza will not be an unfamilar face to those who frequent our neighbouring countries. Often seen laden with people (and goods), the Avanza is a common sight in Malaysia and Indonesia - almost like how Corollas flood our streets here.
Unknown to many, the Avanza bears strong genetic links to Daihatsu, despite wearing Toyota's badge. The first generation was designed and built by Daihatsu Motor Indonesia, and subsequently, manufactured under Perodua in Malaysia too.
Compared to more recent Toyotas that we have been acquainted with, the Avanza is like one without a silver spoon. Its Indonesian roots are relatively more humble than the U.K.-bred Auris and French-born Yaris.
It is this local favour, however, in the Avanza's recipe that made it a hit, with no less than a million units sold in Philippines, Thailand, Brunei, Pakistan and even in some African countries.
