When Toyota came to replace the Corolla, it decided that the new vehicle needed a make new name to show how various and impressive it could be. Then we were presented to the Toyota Auris. It isn't much various, nor is it any more visually impressive. Facelifted early in 2010, the Japanese family hatchback adopted a new front bumper with a refactored grille and a reprofiled back.
When Toyota developed the Toyota Auris, it started with a clean sheet of paper and came up with some clever ideas, like the flat floor, which makes the most use of the available room. due to that piece of layout, the Toyota Auris is one of the few C-segment vehicles where it is convenient to fit three passengers in the rear. There's a lot of of legroom both front and back, and due to the tallish stance, headroom is generous too. As an added touch, the back bench rear can be reclined too, for added convenience. The driver's bench itself is convenient with a lot of of adjustment it's just a shame that the gear lever isn't in a more natural position. For the towing fraternity, 1. 33-litre petrol and 1. 4 D-4D diesel engines can tow 1000kg, with the 1. 6-litre petrol unit able to pull 300kg more.
Toyota sells the Toyota Auris in three versions, with entry-level T2, via TR to the sportiest in the line-up, the SR. All models option air-con, electric mirrors, leather helm, electric front windows, an MP3 compatible CD player with USB and optional sockets and 60/40 folding back seatings, while mid-range TR trim adds 16-inch alloy wheels, heated mirrors, front fog lights, dual-zone conditioning and back electric windows. Top specification SR models add 17-inch alloy wheels, back privacy glass, back spoiler and darkened headlights. The only auxillary extras are leather upholstery and electronic stability programme with traction control.
