2014 Toyota Geneva Motor Show: Auris Hybrid - European touch
Based on a new architecture, with a lower stance, the new Auris reflects the company's willpower to engineer more appealing, dynamically engaging cars whilst building upon the Toyota's long-established reputation for quality, durability and reliability.
Taking this direction, the engineering team focused on weight management, chassis design, packaging optimisation and powertrain enhancement. They also worked closely with the design team to match the vehicle style to the vehicle architecture.
The result is the new Auris — lighter, more dynamic, better equipped and cheaper to run than ever before. It offers bolder, more confident and sleek styling, improved driving dynamics, a higher quality interior design and further enhancements to improve fuel efficiency. This also applies to its flagship, full hybrid model.
Generating class-leading emissions of just 84 g/km, virtually no NOx or Particulate Matter, the Auris Hybrid also delivers significant cost of ownership benefits arising from lower taxation in many European countries and reduced service and maintenance charges.
In 2013 the Hybrid model represented 37% of the Auris Hatchback sales — ranked in the TOP5 of its segment in Europe - demonstrating that full hybrid is a mainstream proposition today, accessible to the largest possible audience.
Designed primarily for Europe, its largest volume market, the new Auris is built at Toyota Motor Manufacturing UK alongside the Avensis, reinforcing the company's commitment to its European operations.
