Besides the conventional 1.2-liter unit, the Auris model is also available with two hybrid engines. O, the first engine which will power the upcoming 2020 Toyota Auris Hybrid is a 1.8-liter 4-cylinder gasoline unit which will be combined with an electric motor. And this engine is also found in the Toyota CH-R and Toyota Prius models. The total output of this engine will be 122 horses.
Furthermore, the next unit will be stronger and it is a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder hybrid which will be able to generate around 177 horses. Both units will work with a continuously variable transmission. Furthermore, because of the lower center of gravity, the Auris will be batter to handle and maneuver.

the 2020 Toyota Auris Hybrid
For the 2019 model year, the Toyota Auris has slightly grown in size and now features a longer wheelbase, lower roof, and it looks sleeker, sportier, and more handsome.
