The Toyota Avanza (Daihatsu Xenia build on the same platform ) is a mini MPV designed and produced in Indonesia and also assembled in Malaysia , with supervision from Toyota, who also sells the car under their Daihatsu brand. The car was launched at the Gaikindo Auto Expo in 2003 and sold over 100,000 units that year. The name "Avanza" was taken from the Italian word avanzato, which means "advance".

The Avanza is a new model developed as a low premier MPV to split the Toyota Kijang to two different models; the other being the Toyota Innova, which is of higher-spec and aimed at a higher market.

In addition to Indonesia and Malaysia, the Avanza is sold in Brunei, Bangladesh, Egypt, Lebanon, Pakistan, Philippines, South Africa, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Mexico (the only North American country to sell it, although the unrelated and similar Scion xB is sold in the United States and Canada) and China.
