The Toyota Auris, likewise referred to as the Corolla iM in the United States, has actually had a strong run, as has even been hailed as the first mass-produced Toyota to use hybrid drive in Europe. Now, for the 2019 model year, Toyota presents the third-gen Auris and a whole new line up of powertrains to choose it. It comes with an elegant make over on the outdoors, following Toyota’s new design language, and taking the shape of a proper hatchback rather than that old, mini-wagon appearance. On the other hand, the interior remains a total secret however that’s the name of the video game, right?
2019 Toyota Auris Exterior
The 2019 Toyota Auris is a substantial departure from the second-gen model. Toyota needs to have taken the old, wagon-line model and threw it out of a 10-story window. With that old beater out of the way, Toyota’s engineers might create this sleek, elegant hatchback. In advance, there are hints borrowed from the new Toyota Camry, as you’ll see with the much-larger grille in advance. That hovering lower lip and those small, round fog lights are a great touch too. And, in some way, Toyota managed to make those long headlights look really good– it’s the LED style inside the lights that make them stick out. In addition, the 3D look up front is simply enticing and is a huge assailant against anything in this specific niche.
The A-pillars and windscreen are long, which permits a somewhat curved roof and a relatively longer front end. The beltline really sits type of high, which makes for smaller sized side glass but that upper body line that gets progressively higher from front to back is a really good accent. On the other hand, around back, the Auris nearly reminds me of the old Megane, because it’s got a little a bubble butt. Where Toyota did things right, however, are the body lines that wrap around the rear quarters. Not to discuss the way the rear wheel wells appear to sit lower in the rear than in the front.
The rear taillights imitate the headlights in style but with a flatter look and the rear fascia looks almost like a cutout from the 2018 Camry, with a pair of reflectors in the corners. It’s an extremely attractive package all of the method around, and due to the fact that it’s a hybrid, Toyota had the ability to integrate those charming little exhaust outlets in the corners.
The 2019 Auris is actually a bit larger. Toyota increased its length by 40mm (1.57 inches.) All of that additional length goes into the wheelbase, offering the car a longer, sportier look and dropping the wagon-like appearance. The roofing likewise sits 25mm (0.98 inches) while the cowl height has actually been visited 47mm (1.85 inches.).
2019 Toyota Auris Interior
As of now, the interior of the new Auris is a complete secret. Toyota hasn’t stated a word about it and refused to let us look inside while it was on screen at the Geneva Auto Show. In fact, Toyota was so anal about keeping the interior a trick that the windows were even dark tinted to prevent and slip peaks. The possibilities are that Toyota will model the interior after that of the new Camry. It’s not really all that far off from the driver-focus style we anticipate for the Auris, and the general design would make a great successor to the interior of the outgoing Auris. For now, nevertheless, take it all with a grain of salt as that may or may not happen. In either case, Toyota will not disappoint in this regard.
2019 Toyota Auris Engine
Toyota is really pressing its hybrid drivetrains with the new Auris and has actually decided to drop the handful of engines it uses in the Auris formerly. As such, the 2019 Auris is only available with one conventional engine or more various hybrid powertrains.
The Toyota Auris is actually used with the choice of three different engines. One the traditional, 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 more power. Toyota has yet to divulge exactly what the conventional, 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 deliver some 177 horsepower.
