Toyota has released prices and specifications for the new Auris which will go on sale in December priced from £14,495. The new Auris will debut at the Paris Motor Show.
All powertrain options will be available from the start of sales the 1.33 Dual VVT-i and 1.6 Valvematic petrol and 1.4 D-4D diesel units, plus Auris Hybrid with Hybrid Synergy Drive. The petrol and diesel models all use a six-speed manual transmission, with Toyota’s Multidrive S CVT offered as an option on the 1.6 Valvematic.
Auris Hybrid uses an E-CVT automatic.
The new Auris will introduce a new Toyota grade structure, which rises from an entry-level Active trim, through Icon and Sport to the top-of-the range Excel. The Active grade will include Automatic air conditioning, four-speaker audio system with USB and Aux connection and MP3 file player (from disc), electrically adjustable, heated, body-coloured door mirrors and electric front windows.
Owners can upgrade their new Auris’s specification with a range of comfort, convenience and styling options. A new park assist system will be available in the Auris range, fitted as standard to Excel models and an affordable option for Icon and Sport versions. Not only will it steer the car neatly into a space, it will also help manoeuvre it out again.
