European motorists can now wave goodbye to Toyota Auris Touring Sports and say hello to the new 2019 Toyota Corolla Touring Sports. The Corolla Touring Sports beats its wagon predecessor in terms of wheelbase, rear legroom, and cargo capacity.
Bound to be unveiled to the global public at the upcoming 2018 Paris Motor Show next month, the all-new Toyota Corolla Touring Sports continues the carmaker’s practice of offering wagon versions of their other models.
Nonetheless, there are quite a number of differences between the Corolla Touring Sports and the Auring Touring Sports. The most important of these is the fact while the Auring Touring Sports is essentially a hatchback transformed into a wagon, the Corolla Touring Sports was designed and developed to be a proper wagon, thanks to being underpinned by the Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) GA-C platform.
Thanks to its wheelbase that measures 2,700 mm, the Toyota Corolla Touring Sports leads its class in terms of rear seat passenger legroom. Likewise, this new wagon offers ample rear seat passenger space, with a front to rear seat couple distance of 928 mm. It is also more practical than the Auring Touring Sports – the new Corolla Touring Sports offers 598 liters of cargo capacity compared to 507 of its predecessor.
