Volkswagen is set to release a new model, the cost of which will start from 6000 euros. In an interview with Automotive News said the head of the department.

New products will be designed for emerging markets. The specific countries are not in the conversation, but with almost absolute certainty, we can say that it is not just about China and India, but also Russia and other Eastern European countries.

As to the concept of a new low-cost Volkswagen, then, according to Hackenberg, it is a full-fledged family car cost from 6 to 8 thousand euro. As the senior manager, such a price level will be achieved through a high localization of production - in Volkswagen will select worthy of regional suppliers with the appropriate level of quality.

Toyota Avensis is a good looking family car having Japanese engines and spare parts that were assembled in UK since it was first introduced. Not only in UK but the car has earned actual fame in every corner of the world due to lot of luxurious appeal in its designs and technical aspects as well. There are three body trims available in the range. The design and engine expansions are divided in to three generations.

A car in the Japanese Used Car industry with Japanese tough materials and European design marks is the best opportunity available for people of developing countries who dream of a sedan just like Avensis. When we take a look at the models of the car it is hard to believe that Toyota Avensis for sale is offering a clear possibility for them as well.

Valuable Specification of Toyota Avensis from each generation

It is an official reality that Toyota Avensis was a new name given to Carina E that was already a success in the Europe. What is similar between the cars were only engines, because it had clear design distinctions since forever if we compare it to Carina.

Now the three body trims of estate wagon, 4 door sedan and 5 door lift back are available. The body trim was same since first generation. The length and size of each body trim was influenced in each of three generations.

The engine specifications in the first generation were a 2L, 1.6L and a 1.8L engines. In the 2.0L engine the turbo diesel specification was also available. The interiors of the car have always enjoyed the admiration of Avensis consumers due to its roominess and high quality of equipment used in the dash boards. The car can allow a good traveling experience for a family but it cannot be expected to perform well off the roads.

The second generation of Toyota Avensis for sale that was launched in 2003 has even more modernism to offer. The other engine specifications remained same as of previous generation. The new addition was a 2.4L famous Camry engine. There were other specifications in the looks and driving controls of the car that have captivating power to grab the attention of the consumers in one time. The Toyota Avensis due to its captivating designs and Camry kind of performance was preferred in many regions like New Zealand.

The third generation Toyota Avensis for sale is still under production process and may be a slightly expensive choice. This time there was tried a sporty driving feel with the car. The comfort creating driver controls in its interiors include an adaptive front-lighting, and an adaptive cruise control.

The standard safety equipment like front airbags were enriched with a side curtain bags for the front and rear car passengers as well.

If a car like this has always been your dream car, only extend your budget a little and have the third generation model from toyota avensis for sale collection and get ready to enjoy unlimited driving and traveling joys.

The numbers
6162cc, V8, RWD, 432bhp, 420lb ft, 22.0mpg, 304g/km CO2, 0-62 in 5.2secs, 155mph, 1920kg

The verdict
Brilliant-handling muscle car, but surprisingly expensive and terrifyingly heavy. Too easy to resist

If our understanding of engineering is anything to go by, removing a car's roof tends to make the driving experience a bit... fluctuant. Especially if it's enormous and American. But the new Euro-spec rag-top Camaro's confounded us - it handles beautifully.

Which is probably because it's not a dollar-driven afterthought. The convertible was designed alongside the tin-top, so a lot of the bracing's been massaged into the shell, not bolted on later - that keeps weight down, closing the dynamic gap between the 'vert and coupe. But at 1,920kg (125kg more than the fixed head) it's still very ponderous.

Wrestling the mass are two engines, both 6.2-litre V8s. There's a 432bhp LS3 that comes with a six-speed manual 'box and a 405bhp L99 with a six-speed auto.

They're quick enough, but both struggle to feel as fun as the numbers suggest. They're thirsty, too - despite the L99's Active Fuel Management system (it shuts down four of the eight cylinders during light loads), it only manages 22mpg. They make a pretty noise, though, which you get a lot more of in the scalped version.

So far, so muscle car. But it gets interesting underneath - instead of a leaf sprung/live axle rear end, there's an independent set-up with Euro-only stiffened dampers and a pair of repositioned and reshaped anti-roll bars. Which means it does the unthinkable - it corners. Like a proper sports car.

It's not exactly unruffled, but body roll's minimal and it's GT-like in its compliance on the open road.

There is, however, a problem. The auto costs £41,495 (manual is £39,999), which seems offensively pricey for something that trades on affordable fun. It gets worse when you notice the wobbly seat stitching and frail trim - something not endemic of other Euro GM cars. Then there's the inconvenience of left-hand-drive, cramped rear legroom, dim fuel economy...

But, let's face it, buying a muscle car in the UK transcends judgement - it's all about visual pheromones and cultural connotations. And, of the current over-priced, under-built crop available in the UK, at least it handles.
