Toyota has revealed the first look at its next-generation Auris ahead of its Paris Motor Show debut next month.
The Japanese brand believes the new model as a “more confident” exterior design, sitting lower than any other C-segment model and interior quality has been improved over the previous model.
Within the UK the new model will feature a 1.4-litre diesel and 1.33 and 1.6-litre petrol engines. Europe-wide Toyota expects an even one-third share of sales for each powertrain type – full hybrid, diesel and petrol –reflecting how it believes hybrid has matured to become a mainstream rather than niche choice.
The new Auris has been designed for Europe and will be built at Toyota’s Burnaston factory in the UK, alongside the Avensis.
Details of UK sales introduction, specifications and prices will be announced at a later date.
