Toyota has revealed the latest version of their high-selling Auris, ahead of its Paris Motor Show debut in September.
Toyota is claiming that the new Auris will be cheaper to run, and that it will be better to drive thanks to improved dynamics. The UK-built Auris will be available in either Hybrid or normal petrol and diesel versions.
The new Auris stands at 55mm lower than the car it replaces, makes use of LED daytime running lights, and has a drag coefficient of 0.28. Toyota is also promising a better interior thanks to the use of higher quality materials. A panoramic sunroof will also be available.
A weight saving of up to 40kg (depending on model) has been achieved thanks to the use of high tensile steel – which has also resulted in a body structure that’s 10 per cent stiffer. Engine options will include a 1.4-litre diesel, or petrol engines displacing 1.3- and 1.6-litres.
No details on pricing or horsepower have been made available, but we should have all the information when it debuts in Paris next month.
