2019 Toyota Auris
The Toyota Auris, likewise called the Corolla iM in the United States, has actually had a strong run, as has actually even been hailed as the first mass-produced Toyota to offer hybrid drive in Europe. Now, for the 2019 model year, Toyota introduces the third-gen Auris and an entire new line up of powertrains to opt for it. It features a trendy makeover on the outside, following Toyota’s new style language, and taking the shape of a proper hatchback rather than that old, mini-wagon look. 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 huge 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 method, Toyota’s engineers could create this sleek, stylish hatchback. In advance, there are hints borrowed from the new Toyota Camry, as you’ll see with the much-larger grille up front. 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 design inside the lights that make them stand apart. Additionally, the 3D look up front is simply attractive and is a big aggressor against anything in this niche.
The A-pillars and windscreen are long, which permits a slightly curved roofing system and a relatively longer front end. The beltline really sits sort of high, which makes for smaller sized side glass however that upper body line that gets progressively higher from front to back is a really nice accent. Meanwhile, around back, the Auris nearly reminds me of the old Megane, because it’s got a little bit of a bubble butt. Where Toyota did things right, however, are the body lines that wrap around the rear quarters. Not to point out the method the rear wheel wells appear to sit lower in the rear than in the front.
The rear taillights simulate the headlights in style but with a flatter appearance and the rear fascia looks nearly 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 incorporate those charming little exhaust outlets in the corners.
The 2019 Auris is really a little bit larger. Toyota increased its length by 40mm (1.57 inches.) All of that extra length goes into the wheelbase, providing the car a longer, sportier look and ditching the wagon-like appearance. The roof likewise sits 25mm (0.98 inches) while the cowl height has actually been stopped by 47mm (1.85 inches.).
2019 Toyota Auris Interior
As of now, the interior of the new Auris is a complete mystery. Toyota hasn’t said a word about it and chose not 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 secret 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 overall design would make a great successor to the interior of the outbound Auris. For now, nevertheless, take it all with a grain of salt as that might or may not take place. Either way, Toyota won’t disappoint in this regard.
2019 Toyota Auris Engine
Toyota is truly pressing its hybrid drivetrains with the new Auris and has actually decided to drop the handful of engines it offers in the Auris previously. As such, the 2019 Auris is only readily available with one standard engine or more different hybrid powertrains.
The Toyota Auris is in fact offered with the option of 3 different engines. One the standard, 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 reveal what the traditional, 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 provide some 177 horse power.
