Toyota will reveal its all-new Auris at the Geneva Motor Show next month with the British-built hatchback and Touring Sports being shown in the public for the first time alongside the new Toyota Avensis.
The new Auris comes with a striking design that adds presence and esteem with a fresh interior and new comfort and safety equipment features.
Hybrid remains at the heart of the range after establishing itself as the leading engine in the line-up – making up almost all Auris sales in Europe last year.
Despite the wonderful success of the hybrid powertrain, the new model represents the arrival of new and improved petrol and diesel engines – developed with a strong emphasis on efficiency and performance.
Toyota’s new Avensis comes with an updated engine range as well as a new package of safety technologies called ‘Toyota Safety Sense’ which includes autonomous braking, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, automatic high beam assistance and road sign recognition.
The synchronised reveal of the new Auris and Avensis follows on from last year’s introduction of Aygo and Yaris to complete a full rejuvenation of Toyota’s core European model range.
Both the Auris and Avensis will continue to be built alongside each other at Toyota Manufacturing UK’s car plant at Burnaston, near Derby.
Toyota will host its Geneva motor show press conference on its stand in Hall 4 at Palexpo, at 12.15pm on 3rd March.
More details on the new Avensis will be released following the launch and will we keep you updated with any news when we get it.
