2014 toyota geneva motor show: auris hybrid touring sports - the c-segment's first wagon with full hybrid powertrain

Combining stylish design with segment-best loadspace and functionality, the new Auris Touring Sports is the segment's first wagon bodystyle available with a full hybrid powertrain in addition to a range of petrol and diesel alternatives.

With CO2 emissions of just 85 g/km, the Auris Hybrid Touring Sports has the most efficient powertrain in the segment. And because its battery is located beneath the rear seats, the installation of Toyota's Hybrid Synergy Drive technology delivers no compromise to either loadspace (up to 2047 mm length) or luggage capacity (up to 1658 litres).

In addition, the new Auris Touring Sports offers customers the combined benefits of Toyota's Easy Flat, one-touch foldable rear seats, a double level loadspace floor, a roller-type luggage net and a two-way tonneau cover.

Wagon body-style variants currently represent 25% of the C-segment market, with 75% of those sales attributed to the fleet market. The new Auris Touring Sports further broadens the appeal of the Auris range, helping to increase the model's segment share to over 5.0% in 2014, its first full year of European sales. Since its launch in July until the end of 2013, the Hybrid version represented 60% of the Auris Touring Sports sales.

Designed for Europe, the new Auris Touring Sports is built at Toyota Motor Manufacturing UK alongside the Avensis, reinforcing the company's commitment to its European operations.
