The Toyota Aurion is a mid-size sedan which was primarily made for the Australian market and some parts of Asia. This model is also known as the Toyota Camry outside of Australia. It debuted back in 2006 and its production has been stopped in 2017 when it has been replaced with the Toyota Camry. During this period, it has been produced in two generations. The first lasted until 2012 when the second generation model debuted. After that, it has been majorly overhauled in 2014 when it has gotten some changes depending on a trim level. However, according to the latest rumors, the carmaker might bring it back again. So, if these rumors appear to be true, we could soon see the all-new 2019 Toyota Aurion.
The Toyota Aurion is a mid-size 4-door sedan which shares many characteristics with the Toyota Camry. So, we could conclude that the 2019 Aurion might get the same improvements as this model. The Camry has been completely refreshed for the 2018 model year so those same changes might be applied to the Aurion. It is available with inline-4 and V-6 engines, and how the Camry is also offered with a hybrid unit which we could also see in the Aurion. However, this information is based on the rumors, we cannot say it for sure.
Engines and performances of the 2019 Toyota Aurion
The 2019 Toyota Aurion will be powered by the several types of engines, like before. The one is a 2.0-liter inline-4 which is able to make either 137 hp and 139 pound-feet of torque or 145 hp and the torque of 140 lb-ft which depends on a trim level. The next is a 2.4-liter inline-4 which can deliver up to 170 ponies and 165 pound-feet of torque. There is also a 3.5-liter V-6 which can make 268 hp and 248 lb-ft of torque. The supercharged version will have the output of 323 horses and 295 pound-feet of torque. On the other hand, the Camry also uses a hybrid engine so the newest Aurion might also get a hybrid version, but this is not yet confirmed. Depending on a market and engine, it will work with a five-speed manual, a six-speed automatic or a five-speed automatic transmission.
