The Toyota full hybrid also benefits from wireless, Bluetooth hands-free mobile phone connectivity -independent of the optional navigation system- allowing for incoming call sound output through the vehicle speakers. The fully integrated audio system incorporates a mini jack USB/AUX input terminal located within the upper glove box, allowing for the connection of MP3 players directly to the audio system.

Auto- levelling headlamps can be fitted with optional, High Intensity Discharge (HID) lights, and an optional rear camera with a display integrated into the driver's rear view mirror will be available at a later date.

The Auris HSD interior incorporates a hybrid-specific driver's instrument cluster and driving mode switchgear and a Shift-by-Wire transmission lever. Instrument and switchgear illumination has been amended to greenish white numbers on a hybrid blue background.
