Some know it as the Toyota Corolla, some call it Toyota Auris, and the name depends on a market; but it is basically the same vehicle, or precisely Toyota Auris is derived from the Corolla. It is a compact hatchback which is sold in the European market and it represents the replacement for the Corolla hatchback and the sedan has been continued. The current model has been present on the market for quite some time and according to the newest reports, the Japanese manufacturer is preparing the all-new 2019 Toyota Auris.
The upcoming 2019 Auris will represent the next generation of this model. We are pretty much sure that it is going to bring many improvements. The prototype has been spied during its testing in winter conditions and although it has been camouflaged, some changes are obvious. As well, the photographers have managed to take a few shots of the interior so we are able to see what to expect after it appears in showrooms. So, starting from the new architecture, the new Toyota will receive some adjustments in the exterior styling and changes inside the cabin. As for the powertrain, we don’t expect some major departure from the current version.
2019 Toyota Auris types of engines and performances
Under the hood of the 2019 Toyota Auris should be placed several types of engines. It will continue to offer the already known units but there should also be available some new options.
So, the one option will be the same 1.2-liter turbo engine and there should also be the familiar hybrid powertrain. It will be a combination of the same 1.8-liter unit and an electric motor. It will work with a continuously variable transmission. On the other hand, according to the latest rumors, both Auris and Corolla should receive twin turbo units. Those should be the 1.5-liter 4-cylinder and the 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engines.
Exterior and interior design
First of all, the new 2019 Toyota Auris will ride on the new architecture. It is the Toyota New Global Architecture, in short, the TNGA platform which also underpins Prius, C-HR and the next-generation Corolla models. So, the Auris won’t significantly change its size but it will arrive with a reduced weight which will improve performance and fuel consumption.
As far as the exterior is concerned, the 2019 Toyota will share some styling cues with the C-HR model. It will receive a revised hood, narrow headlamps, and bold grille. On the rear, there will be restyled narrow taillights and the whole body will feature sportier appearance.
The cabin of the 2019 Toyota Auris will also be refreshed and should feature some similarities with the C-HR model. The infotainment system should be larger and will be placed on the top of the dashboard. Furthermore, there should be an updated climate control setup and we can expect more standard features as well.
Release date and price
The 2019 Toyota Auris should be presented in late 2018 or most likely sometime at the beginning of 2019. The pricing is not yet announced.
