The Toyota Auris, likewise called the Corolla iM in the United States, has actually had a strong run, as has even been hailed as the very first mass-produced Toyota to offer hybrid drive in Europe. Now, for the 2019 model year, Toyota introduces the third-gen Auris and a whole new line up of powertrains to opt for it. It includes an elegant makeover on the outdoors, following Toyota’s new design language, and taking the shape of a proper hatchback instead of that old, mini-wagon appearance. On the other hand, the interior remains a complete mystery however that’s the name of the game, right?
2019 Toyota Auris Exterior
The 2019 Toyota Auris is a big departure from the second-gen model. Toyota must have taken the old, wagon-line model and threw it from a 10-story window. With that old beater out of the way, Toyota’s engineers could create this streamlined, elegant hatchback. In advance, there are hints borrowed from the new Toyota Camry, as you’ll see with the much-larger grille up front. That hovering lower lip and those small, round fog lights are a good touch too. And, in some way, Toyota handled to make those long headlights look really good– it’s the LED design inside the lights that make them stick out. In addition, the 3D search for front is simply attractive and is a big assailant versus anything in this specific niche.
The A-pillars and windshield are long, which enables a slightly curved roof and a relatively longer front end. The beltline in fact sits sort of high, makings for smaller sized side glass however that upper body line that gets gradually greater from front to back is a truly nice accent. Meanwhile, around back, the Auris practically advises me of the old Megane, because it’s got a bit of a bubble butt. Where Toyota did things right, nevertheless, are the body lines that wrap around the rear quarters. Not to point out the method the rear wheel wells appear to sit lower in the rear than in the front.
The rear taillights simulate the headlights in style but with a flatter appearance and the rear fascia looks practically like a cutout from the 2018 Camry, with a set of reflectors in the corners. It’s an extremely attractive package all the way around, and due to the fact that it’s a hybrid, Toyota was able to integrate those adorable little exhaust outlets in the corners.
The 2019 Auris is really a little bit larger. Toyota increased its length by 40mm (1.57 inches.) All of that additional length enters into the wheelbase, providing the car a longer, sportier appearance and dumping the wagon-like appearance. The roofing system likewise sits 25mm (0.98 inches) while the cowl height has been stopped by 47mm (1.85 inches.).
2019 Toyota Auris Interior
As of now, the interior of the new Auris is a total mystery. Toyota hasn’t said a word about it and chose not to let us look inside while it was on display screen at the Geneva Auto Show. In truth, Toyota was so anal about keeping the interior a trick that the windows were even dark tinted to prevent and slip peaks. The opportunities are that Toyota will model the interior after that of the new Camry. It’s not really all that away from the driver-focus design we expect for the Auris, and the overall design would make a great successor to the interior of the outbound Auris. For now, nevertheless, take it all with a grain of salt as that might or might not occur. Either way, Toyota will not dissatisfy in this regard.
2019 Toyota Auris Engine
Toyota is actually pressing its hybrid drivetrains with the new Auris and has actually decided to drop the handful of engines it provides in the Auris formerly. As such, the 2019 Auris is only offered with one standard engine or two different hybrid powertrains.
The Toyota Auris is actually used with the choice of three various engines. One the standard, non-hybrid front, there’s a 1.2-liter mill. On the hybrid front, there’s a 1.8-liter engine or a 2.0-liter with a little bit more power. Toyota has yet to divulge what the traditional, 1.2-liter fuel engine produces, however the 1.8-liter hybrid mill provides 120 horse power while the 2.0-liter hybrid mill will provide some 177 horsepower.
2019 Toyota Auris Price
Toyota has yet to reveal prices for the 2019 Toyota Auris, but you can anticipate it to run anywhere between EUR15,000 and EUR25,000 throughout Europe. Here in the U.S., that computes to anywhere in between $18,000 and $30,000.
