Toyota working on a new crossover based on Auris

Article by Christian A., on July 17, 2014

Toyota wants to boosts its crossover lineup and as a result, the Japanese manufacturer is working on a new crossover based on its popular Auris. Set to go on sale in 2017, the new crossover will sit below the RAV4 and will take on vehicles such as the Honda CR-V and Nissan Qashqai.

Toyota is already testing prototype versions of the Auris-based crossover, which is expected to be offered as standard with front-wheel-drive while AWD will be available as an option.

Under the hood we will find the 1.6-liter four-cylinder petrol engine that generates around 130 hp, but also a hybrid version that will use the well-known 1.8-liter Atkinson cycle petrol engine found on the Auris Hybrid. More details to be revealed!
