Is the Toyota Avanza a Toyota or a Daihatsu?

We all know the Toyota Avanza. The strangely proportioned 7-seater MPV that has the ground clearance of an SUV. While opinions are split between the car’s look, there was no denying that it was a helpful workhorse whether you’re ferrying workers or family around. Those on the elderly side also love the height clearance as it means easier ingress and egress! If you’re a very observant person, you would notice that according to the Avanza’s VIN plate, th
