The Toyota Auris, likewise referred to as the Corolla iM in the United States, has had a strong run, as has even been hailed as the very first mass-produced Toyota to provide hybrid drive in Europe. Now, for the 2019 model year, Toyota presents the third-gen Auris and an entire new line up of powertrains to go with it. It features a stylish new look on the outdoors, following Toyota’s new design language, and taking the shape of a correct hatchback instead of that old, mini-wagon appearance. Meanwhile, the interior stays a total mystery however that’s the name of the game, right?
2019 Toyota Auris Exterior
The 2019 Toyota Auris is a substantial 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 method, Toyota’s engineers might create this sleek, stylish hatchback. Up front, there are cues obtained 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 nice touch too. And, in some way, Toyota handled to make those long headlights look really good– it’s the LED style inside the lights that make them stand out. Furthermore, the 3D search for front is just attractive and is a big aggressor versus anything in this niche.
The A-pillars and windscreen are long, which allows for a somewhat curved roof and a fairly longer front end. The beltline actually sits sort of high, that makes for smaller sized side glass however that upper body line that gets gradually greater from front to back is an actually good accent. On the other hand, around back, the Auris practically advises me of the old Megane, in that it’s got a little bit of a bubble butt. Where Toyota did things right, nevertheless, are the body lines that twist around the rear quarters. Not to point out 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 however with a flatter appearance 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 bundle all of the method around, and due to the fact that it’s a hybrid, Toyota had the ability to incorporate those cute little exhaust outlets in the corners.
The 2019 Auris is really a little bit bigger. Toyota increased its length by 40mm (1.57 inches.) All of that extra length enters into the wheelbase, offering the car a longer, sportier appearance and dumping the wagon-like look. The roofing likewise sits 25mm (0.98 inches) while the cowl height has actually been stopped by 47mm (1.85 inches.).
2019 Toyota Auris Interior
Currently, the interior of the new Auris is a total mystery. Toyota hasn’t said a word about it and refused to let us look inside while it was on 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 avoid and slip peaks. The chances 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 overall design would make a really good successor to the interior of the outgoing Auris. In the meantime, however, take it all with a grain of salt as that might or might not take place. Either way, Toyota won’t dissatisfy in this regard.
2019 Toyota Auris Engine
Toyota is really pushing its hybrid drivetrains with the new Auris and has actually chosen to drop the handful of engines it uses in the Auris formerly. As such, the 2019 Auris is only available with one traditional engine or more various hybrid powertrains.
The Toyota Auris is really provided with the choice of 3 various engines. One the conventional, 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 bit more power.
Toyota has yet to divulge exactly what the standard, 1.2-liter gasoline engine produces, however the 1.8-liter hybrid mill offers up 120 horse power while the 2.0-liter hybrid mill will provide some 177 horse power.
