The Auris Touring Sports is a real family car. It is available in Terra, Luna and Hybrid grades and prices begin at 21,970 euro. The Touring Sports is available in diesel and hybrid powertrains.

Estate body style

Auris Touring Sports adds the estate body style to the Auris model range, while sharing the hatchback’s new frontal design, Under Priority design language and keen look headlamps.

The strong, distinctive exterior design of Auris Touring Sport maximise the aerodynamic benefits that come with the model’s lower height and the dynamic improvements offered by its lower centre of gravity.

All models feature integrated roof rails, black on Terra and silver on other grades, which enhance versatility and design.

Auris Touring Sports provides an extra 170 liters of boot space (47% extra) in addition to a class leading luggage capacity of 1,658 liter. That is matched with exceptional functionality with grade dependent features that include Toyota’s Easy Fold one touch rear seat system, a two-way tonneau cover and a luggage net system.

The boot opening of the Touring Sports has also been lowered by 100m to make it easier to load luggage.

As well as bring more spacious, Auris Touring Sports offers a friendly multimedia system like the Auris hatchback. The Auris Touring Sports will feature the intuitive Toyota Touch multimedia system on Luna and Hybrid variants.

The systems features include a 6.1” colour touch screen display with USB/iPod compatible multimedia, rear-view camera plus Bluetooth audio and hands-free phone functionality.

Commitment

Toyota say the Auris Touring Sports reinforces their commitment to improving the dynamic abilities of its vehicles to give customers a more engaging driving experience. To this end, it carries forward all the improvements made in the new Auris hatchback.

These include a more rigid bodyshell, a lower centre of gravity, improved suspension and steering, a better driving position and improved NVH (noise, vibration and harshness) performance.

The Auris Touring Sports hybrid also has class leading CO2 emissions from 92g/km and significantly lower NOx and PM emission than a diesel car of comparable performance.
