This is the first time we have managed to catch the model on public roads as the Japanese manufacturer prepares it for launch early in 2016.

Spied in southern Europe and hiding under a thick layer of camouflage, here is the inner workings for the all new Toyota Avensis. This is the first time we have managed to catch the model on public roads as the Japanese manufacturer prepares it for launch early in 2016.

Despite the extensive black and white camouflage, this is a mule wearing many of the body panels of its predecessor. The biggest change however appears to be on the front end with a more prominent grille and sculpted hood evident in these pictures.

Technical details are still very scarce during these early stages of development. The 4th generation Avensis will come with a range of petrol, diesel and hybrid engines that will most likely come with some impressive fuel consumption figures.
