The 2015 Toyota Auris has been designed in a way to increase its appeal to a wider range of customers. The car is available in diesel, petrol and hybrid engines and features updated equipment and all new safety equipment.
The Auris’s front and rear have been redesigned to give the car a broader stance and low centre of gravity, making it more of a presence on the road. The car features LED headlamps, which include LED daytime running lights. LED lights use less energy and have a life of up to 100,000 hours!
The grille on the new Auris sits in a lower position, beneath the more prominent front bumper, and runs the full width of the car. The new front styling generate longer overhangs, improving the overall balance of the design. The car comes with 16 or 17” alloy wheels, depending on the specification.
The driver’s instrument dashboard has a more sporty design, whilst the centre dashboard has been integrated into a single, smooth surface. Many details inside the cabin, such as air-vents, door handles and gear lever have been redesigned to give a higher-quality appearance.
As mentioned earlier the Auris is available in petrol, diesel and hybrid engines. The 1.2T, a new turbocharged engine, joins the 1.33-litre VVT-I and 1.6-litre valvematic unit, giving customers a range of petrol engines to choose from. The diesel option offers a new 1.6-litre D-4D unit and a 1.4-litre D-4D, which has been upgraded. A 1.8-litre hybrid engine, which uses Toyota’s full hybrid technology, delivers emissions from as low as 79g/km.
The Auris comes packed with new safety features to assist you as much as possible if you get into difficulty. The optional Toyota Safety Sense pack includes a Pre-Collision System, Lane Departure Alter, Automatic High Beam and Road Sign Assist. These functions work by processing information provided by a compact laser and camera unit mounted on the head of the windscreen. All of the Safety Sense status’s are displayed on the new multi-information screen on the dash.
