Toyota Allion was launched on the 25th of December in 2001, and it is safe to say that the vehicle has had a great jolly ride since that Christmas. The Allion is a compact yet stylish sedan that was aimed at the sporty and youthful drivers without going overboard. In simple terms, it is a vehicle that you can ride in when you are out with the boys/girls on Saturday, use it on the family afternoon on Sunday and drive to work in it on Monday. To say the least, the Allion was a replacement of the Carina that was in production since the 70s. Compared to the Premio, this sedan is aimed at a more youthful generation.
To ensure that the young driver is at home in the vehicle, Toyota loaded the Allion with features that combine functionality with an exciting experience. The power window on one hand will make the movement of the door glass an easy affair and the power steering is aimed at synchronizing the steering wheel and the tire movement to enhance maneuverability. The vehicle has traction control to prevent over and under steering. Safety has been prioritized with comfortable seats and airbags to protect the occupants in-case of an accident.
The Allion got a great paint job and is available in a variety of colors to give the young owners some exciting options. There is white, red, beige, silver, black and blue Allion. The standard trim comes with alloy rims which make the vehicle more appealing. There roof rail will provide an edge in matters related to additional carriage. The face of the Allion has been beautified with a smooth grille carved to perfection with the Toyota logo proudly standing out. The lighting experience is improved and the lead and tail lights are in angular form to complement the smooth curves of the sedan.
The Allion makes quite an impression in the exterior, interior and also under the hood. Toyota gave the Allion a 4-cylinder 1NZ-FE water Cool DOHC engine with 136 Nm torque and 109 horsepower. This engine is strong enough to manage 0-100 kilometers per hour in just 10.5 seconds, which is pretty good for cars in the ordinary sedan category. On fuel economy on average, the Allion can do an impressive 20 kilometers per liter of petrol which is a great deal for a young driver.
As aforementioned this vehicle is meant for the young generation which explains the high technology fitting on the dashboard. The experience of the vehicle has been described as superb, considering the fact that the vehicle has so much to offer and is still compact. Everything has been synchronized and the weight is balanced for a smooth drive. There are different models of Allion on sale and you can either go for a brand new 2014-2015 model or go for a used version that costs less.
