Toyota unveils Auris Touring Sports Black design study

Article by Anita Panait, on March 9, 2013

A newcomer to the compact estate car market is sure to attract a lot of interest as well as buyers thanks to its class-leading functionality and an optional full hybrid power. This newcomer is the UK-built Toyota Auris Touring Sports, which features a very modern Toyota design and a load capacity of up to 1,658 litres.

Add those to its very low carbon dioxide emissions of just 85g/km and the Auris Touring Sports could become a standard for its ease of use and ownership costs. To mark the new model’s launch this spring 2013, Toyota came up with the Auris Touring Sports Black design study, providing a dynamic enhancement to the vehicle’s appearance both in the interior and in the exterior.

The design study also demonstrates how an estate/wagon body style can provide more than just functionality. Auris Touring Sports Black dons an exterior design highlighted by a new Night Sky black metallic paint finish. This is well contrasted by the red 19-inch alloy wheels, red inserts on the front and rear bumpers and a red trim on the front grille.

The vehicle’s ‘Sports’ attribute is exhibited via its twin chrome exhaust pipes and dark tinted rear LED lights, as well as piano black roof rails and privacy glass. Auris Touring Sports Black’s signature color scheme is also present inside through the black leather and double red stitching feature on the steering wheel, door panels, dashboard, sports seats, gear shift lever and handbrake.

The instrument panel illumination and the finish on the air vents and cup holders are in red. The interior features quality carpeting and exclusive sports seats upholstered in black leather and perforated red Alcantara, which is also used to cover the interior pillars as well as for the roof lining.
