Ashtrays: 2014 Toyota Avensis 1.8

Among the better features of Toyota’s large family car (now replaced) is the driver’s ashtray.

It’s well placed and a proper size. The illumination is from the side. The mechanism has a nice smoothly damped action and is a lower, horizontally hinged device. 

Here it is when open. It holds about 60mls. The material is charmless cost-cutter’s black heat-resistant plastic.

This is what it looks like in action. We’ll be doing full videos of cars at this rate.

There are no ashtrays in the rear. Those cost-cutters again.

I like anchovies. I dislike post-war town planning.
