Paris Motor Show LIVE: World Premiere of the Toyota Auris Touring Sports Hybrid

Toyota brought to the Paris Motor Show the latest generation Auris model, in both hatchback and estate versions.

The Auris Touring Sports is the first wagon in the C-segment available with a full hybrid powertrain and represents a further diversification of Toyota’s application of its HSD full hybrid powertrain.

The Auris Touring Sports shares its 2,600 mm wheelbase with the hatchback but is 285 mm longer overall, due to the extended loadspace of the new wagon. The car shares the hatchback’s new frontal design, including the steeply raked windscreen which flows into an extended roofline featuring anodised aluminium roof rails and an integral rear spoiler.

The extended, three-panel side glazing features blacked-out pillars, including a piano black finish to the B pillar, while at the rear, the Auris Touring Sports features a new bumper and tailgate design. The loadspace sill is set 80 mm lower than that of the hatchback and a new, wraparound rear combination lamp design reinforces the dynamic shape of the rear wing, new D pillar design and rear screen.

The Auris Touring Sports shares the technical platform with the hatchback’s, being available with a choice of two petrol and two diesel engines. The 1.33 Dual VVT-i (99 HP) and the 1.6-liter Valvematic (132 HP), a further development of Toyota’s Dual Variable Valve Timing-intelligent (Dual VVT-i) system. On the diesel side, there’s the 1.4-liter D-4D unit (90 HP) and the 2.0-liter D-4D powerplant (124 HP).

Of course, the Auris Touring Sports is also available with the Hybrid Sinergy Drive full hybrid powertrain. Capable of operating both independently and in combination, the HSD system’s 1.8 litre VVT-i petrol engine and 60 kW electric motor generate a maximum power output of 136 HP, equipping the Auris Hybrid with a 0-100 km/h acceleration time of 10.9 seconds and a maximum speed of 180 km/h.
