Teased: Toyota Avensis Facelift

The first photo of the Toyota Avensis has been released.

The first official teaser has made its way out of Japan of the 2012 Toyota Avensis' new facelift. An improved powertrain means that the car isn't just a prettier model of former editions. Toyota's new design lines are seen clearly in this image of the Avensis' front-end. The new styling includes an aggressive lower grille and bigger LED-affixed headlights. The new Avensis will also pack some tweaks under the hood to help with driving dynamics and handling.

The Japanese automaker gave the car a more streamlined powertrain for improved fuel-efficiency. The 2012 Toyota Avensis will make its debut at the 2011 Frankfurt International Auto Show later this month. It will roll out alongside Toyota's other models, the updated Prius, the 3-door Yaris and the 2012 Hilux.
