With bold, dynamic styling and a driving experience you’ll look forward to every day and it would seem that the Toyota Auris couldn’t get any better. But with a brand new 1.8-litre petrol hybrid, it just did. Experience a luxuriously silent ride, enviable fuel economy and superior comfort that you can feel good about.
A fresh, updated design raises the bar for all other hatchbacks, adding space, energy and style to the Auris Hybrid. A quality central console focuses on ergonomics to make driving as straightforward as possible, while reclining rear seats mean the whole family can travel in comfort.
A powerhouse 1.8-litre engine teams up with a hybrid battery to bring you a punchy drive without the compromise on fuel economy. Enjoy an impressive acceleration from 0-62mph in 10.9 seconds while still achieving up to 83mpg – giving you the best of both worlds.
A wealth of safety measures are fitted to give you perfect security behind the wheel, from brighter LED headlamps to cruise control for comprehensive protection. Vehicle Stability Control can control individual brakes whilst varying the engine output in order to redirect the car towards the outside of a curve, maintaining stability around tricky corners and adverse weather. A rear-view camera is also fitted as standard in every Auris Hybrid, eliminating blind spots when parking for complete peace of mind.
An optional Toyota Safety Sense features pack is newly available to provide an unparalleled level of safety, including intelligent features such as Automatic High Beam, which automatically switches between high and low beams by detecting both the headlights of oncoming vehicles and tail lights of vehicles on the road ahead. Road Sign Assist also helps to keep drivers aware of warnings and speed limits to ensure a truly safe journey from start to finish.
A smooth, contoured body sits poised and ready for action, with improved aerodynamics thanks to a lowered roofline that sheds excess weight while dropping the centre of gravity to create a car that glides through the air with ease. Chrome surrounds on the lower front grille coupled with the exciting v-shaped nose give the Auris Hybrid an unmistakeably powerful visual identity.
Inside, style and comfort abound, from soft-touch door trim and heated driver and front passenger seats to a sliding armrest on the front console box. Dual-zone automatic air conditioning ensures optimum relaxation in any conditions, and a colour 4.2-inch TFT multi-information display sits between the dials to provide a wealth of useful information. A leather-trimmed steering wheel adds a touch of class to the cockpit, while both audio and multimedia switches allow the driver to stay connected and focused at the same time.
Toyota’s new multimedia interface, Toyota Touch 2®, is built into the Auris Hybrid’s central console, offering a simplified and more enjoyable user experience. With everything from maps to music and even hands-free calling via Bluetooth, it has never been easier for you to stay connected while driving.
The exciting Smart Entry and Smart System is also included, allowing keyless locking and unlocking of your car with simple touch. A push button is then used to start the car, meaning searching for keys whilst dropping bags of heavy shopping is a thing of the past.
The rear-view mirror is also treated with electrochromic technology, automatically darkening when bright light, like that of a car’s headlights, hits the mirror. It is programmed to only work at night to maximise visibility during the day too, so your Auris Hybrid will do all the hard work, you just sit back and enjoy the drive.
