Specification

Every Auris 2010 model above the Terra grade now 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 now incorporates a mini jack USB/AUX input terminal located within the upper glovebox, allowing for the connection of MP3 players directly to the audio system.

The seat upholstery has also been upgraded, with five new finishes available for the main inserts two woven -dark grey and light grey, two Tatami knitted -dark grey, with grey or ruby patterns, and one partial leather / Alcantara. Auto-levelling headlamps can be fitted with optional, HID (High Intensity Discharge) lights, and an optional rear camera with a display integrated into the driver's rear view mirror will be available at a later date.
