1.3 J MT

This is the base model of the 2019 Toyota Avanza and as you would have guessed it, it is the most affordable one with a price tag of Php 731,000. As the name suggests, it is powered by a 1.3-litre four-cylinder engine which produces 95 hp of maximum power at 6,000 rpm and 121 Nm of peak torque at 4,200 rpm. There is only a single transmission available with this model and it is a 5-speed manual transmission. The 1.3 J MT is the only variant of the Avanza that comes with 14-inch steel wheels.

In terms of looks, all the variants are very similar. They all get the new front fascia. The front end has been completely revamped with a split headlamp (halogen in this case) setup and a much more prominent grille. At the rear, there is a thick horizontal chrome strip that joins the two tail lights adding a bit of premium-ness. The cabin space is the same as before. This variant gets a 2DIN audio system and 2 speakers for entertainment purposes. The 3-spoke urethane steering wheel doesn’t get mounted controls. For safety, there are dual front SRS airbags and ABS with EBD.

1.3 E MT

This is pretty much similar to the aforementioned variant with a few additional features like 14-inch alloy wheels, LED headlamps, rear window defogger, anti-glare inside rear view mirror, etc. However, unlike the 1.3 J MT, this one here is a 7-seater. The 1.3 E MT is priced at Php 864,000.
