The world's cleanest family car is adopting a fresh face for 2006 with changes to the styling of its headlamps and rear light clusters, and a restyled front grille.

Inside the cabin, comfort for passengers has been improved, with an adjustment to the hip point for those sitting in the back. Quality, one of the fundamental elements of all Toyota models, has been raised further with new upholstery colours, a soft-touch paint finish for the dashboard, and the introduction of a leather-trimmed steering wheel across the range.
