Specifications and prices of the Toyota Auris officially declared
|   Thursday, September 27, 2012
Toyota has finally launched the specification and price details of its new hatch back, the Toyota Auris at the ongoing Paris International Motor Show 2012. The base model of the vehicle starts from 14,495 Pounds with the higher end models costing to up to 21,745 Pounds.

The top most model is a hybrid and is currently available on special request only. However, the first deliveries will not be made prior to December 2012 and the hybrid will be readily available in showrooms post the middle quarter of 2013.


The Toyota Auris is powered by a 1.60 liter Valve Tronic petrol engine, a 1.33 liter Dual WTi engine and a 1.4 liter D 4WD diesel powered engine. All the three models will be available post launch and there should not be a delay in deliveries as the current demand has not exceeded productions.
Toyota was aware of the initial high response to the vehicle and the initial burst of demand of the Auris. Hence, the production of the car was started in advance so that there remained enough production to tackle the initial burst in demand.

All the different engine variants – apart from the hybrid which gets an advanced CVT automatic gear box - are mated to a singular six speed automatic transmission system and this is available as an option on the 1.6 liter petrol engine.

Toyota has classified the vehicles according to their specifications and the entry level Auris has been named the Active, followed by the Icon, Sport and the Excel. Toyota is also allowing active trim chassis for a select few models of the Auris and the 1.33 liter petrol is one such model.

The vehicles featuring Active trim are endowed with an air conditioning cum climate control system, a four speakers + single woofer audio device, electrically controlled front lamp control, electrically adjustable side mirrors as standard features apart from the daytime running lights and vehicle stability control which are present on all the models.

The Icon features a six speaker audio device with advanced DAB digital sound enhancement apart from Bluetooth and WI-FI connectivity in addition to all the standard features. The Icon also features 16 inch alloyed rims and a rear parking camera with fog lamps and electronic windows.

The Sport sports a 17 inch alloyed sports rim, a rear diffuser and reverse grille plus tinted windows and sporty seats and covers. The Excel, which is placed at the top of the lineup, is equipped with keyless entry, dual zone climate controller, automated head lamps, leather covered seat covers and parking assist apart from rain sensing wipers and active cruise control.

The automated parking system on the Auris is the enhanced version of the technology which was originally used in previous vehicles of Toyota and this one has the ability to tackle more complicated situations with ease. A host of other applications like Toyota SAT NAV and Toyota Go are also available on the vehicle on special request. The bookings for the Auris have started and the response has been overwhelming so far.
