The new SR models are powered by the 1.6 Dual VVT-i petrol and 2.0 D-4D 130 diesel engines. The SR grade moves Auris right to the heart of the “mild sports” market, a fast growing niche that already accounts for more than one third of UK new car sales in the C-segment.
The new versions feature lowered sports suspension, rear spoiler and 17-inch alloy wheels from Toyota Motorsport.
The SR is on sale now, in three and five-door body styles priced from £14,495.
The TR trim gets automatic dual zone air conditioning as standard. Specification also includes five-spoke 16-inch alloy wheels, blue interior seat trim and chrome rear trim detailing. The TR is available now with 1.4 and 1.6 VVT-i petrol and 2.0 D-4D 130 diesel engines. Optional MultiMode transmission is available with the 1.6 unit.
The introduction of the new TR and SR models takes the number of grades in the Auris range to six: T2, TR, T3, SR, T Spirit and SR180.
