Retuned hybrid powertrain

Europe’s best-selling hybrid models benefit from powertrain retuning that delivers an enhanced natural driving experience with no compromise in their highly efficient performance. Toyota’s engineers have secured a closer alignment between the increase in engine and vehicle speeds, creating a more linear acceleration feel as the driver applies the throttle. 

New colour choices

Ensuring that Auris keeps on-trend, two new shades have been added to the exterior paint options: Platinum Bronze metallic following the trend for grey colours with a bronze hint and Solid Blue for the price conscious.Built exclusively at Toyota Manufacturing UK’s Burnaston factory, the new 2016 Auris Hatchback and Touring Sports are on sale now.
