Key points

Toyota is launching a new era of clean diesel engine performance with the introduction of the Toyota 2.0-litre D-CAT (Diesel Clean Advanced Technology) engine, the world’s cleanest diesel in terms of nitrogen oxides and particulate emissions. At the same time, Toyota is bringing to market a new 2.4-litre Di direct injection petrol unit, the flagship engine of the Avensis range.

The 2.0 D-CAT engine delivers low levels of harmful nitrogen oxides (NOx), hydrocarbon (HC) and particulate (PM) emissions, far below the demands of Euro IV legislation. In this respect, its emissions performance makes it the world’s cleanest diesel engine.
