The company also unveiled the all-new 2019 Toyota Auris at the Geneva Motor Show. The new Japanese golf competition is impressive with its bold exterior style, a feature that is not in its predecessor.
Toyota Auris Redesign
Toyota has dropped a mysterious teaser image for the car and it reveals a massive improvement has been made in terms of exterior design. This car seems to have full headlamps and taillights, contrasting black roofs and rearview mirrors that are positioned lower on the door panels instead of sitting next to pillar A as they do on outgoing models.
The new Auris generation has grown up to 40mm in length, all between the front and rear wheels to create more space for indoor occupants. The car is 25mm lower and 30mm wider, with 20mm trimmed overhangs at the rear of the car.
Toyota Auris Interior
From now on, the new 2019 Toyota Auris interior is a complete mystery. Toyota did not say a word about it and refused to let us look inside when it was on display at the Geneva Motor Show. In fact, Toyota really wanted to keep a secret inside that the windows were even stained with black to avoid the top. Most likely Toyota will model the interior after the new Camry. It’s not too far from the pilot style we expect for Auris, and the overall design will make an excellent successor to the Auris out. For now, however, take it all with salt granules, as this may or may not be the case. After all, Toyota will not let you down on this.
Auris Platform 2019
The platform used by Auris is TNGA, already used by the Prius hybrid range and C-HR crossover. He had to make sure that the Japanese golf rival was going well and light enough, though we did not expect a class leader to be on his way.
Toyota Auris Engine 2019
Built on the same TNGA platform as the Prius and C-HR, the third generation Toyota Auris is equipped with a 100PS 1.2 petrol engine and a choice of two hybrids. The 1.8-liter hybrid gasoline 120-hp from the old car is being transported and offered alongside a new 2.0 petrol hybrid at 177 hp. The 1.4 diesel has been eliminated from the range, with Toyota declaring that its future model will no longer be offered with diesel.
Price and Release Date
Prices and specifications in the UK have not been announced for family cars, but expect the range to start at the same point as the previous model, which sold from £ 23,000.
