2013 Toyota Auris Touring Sports: more details and specs released

Article by Christian A., on February 27, 2013

Additional details about Toyota Auris Touring Sports were unveiled as the Geneva Motor Show approaches. The new British-built model was seen previously at the Paris Motor Show. This stands for the first time that the Auris will be available as an estate. There are also plans for an HSD version. This will then be the lone hybrid estate car in the C-segment.

The new Auris Touring Sports has the 2600mm wheelbase of the hatchback. However, it is longer by 285mm in order to make the bootspace bigger. It comes with a loadbed that’s 1.15m long and 1.45m wide. When the seats are up, the boot measures 550-litres.

But when the seats are folded, the space expands to 1658 litres. There have also been improvements to its accessibility.

Since the boot sill is 100mm lower than the hatchback, loading and unloading large items become much easier. Standard equipment on all the models includes one-touch Easy-Flat folding rear seats, false boot floor, luggage net, shopping bag hooks, roof rails and a 12v socket in the boot.

The engine lineup of the Toyota Auris Touring Sports is the same as that of the hatchback. Buyers can choose from 1.33- and 1.6-litre petrol units, a 1.4-litre diesel and a 1.8-litre hybrid which has CO2 emissions of 86g/km.

Toyota said that the smart packaging of the hybrid powertrain doesn’t have an effect of the functionality of the petrol-electric models. Toyota is expanding the Auris range as part of its goal to acquire a 5% market share in the European C-segment by 2014.
