Toyota is a brand that South Africans love, and the Toyota Auris won’t disappoint anyone who is looking for a great car at the right price. The Toyota Auris for sale benefits from a few aesthetic changes and some interior modifications. The guys at Toyota have also fiddled with the engines and the new Toyota Auris has more style and power than ever before…
Exterior of the Auris
The new Toyota Auris 2015 is visually sharper in the front, as the manufacturer has given the vehicle some chrome ‘wings’ which emerge from a slightly thinner upper grille. The Toyota badge has been made more prominent and it flows nicely into the rest of the chrome trim.
It features long overhangs on the side and a new shark fin roof antenna. The new Toyota Auris for sale has new 16-inch alloy wheels and a redesigned bumper.
Toyota SA has also introduced two new colours to the Auris, namely a metallic Blue which was previously reserved for only the Toyota Auris 2015 hybrid model (being released in September 2015).
The Toyota Auris Interior
The inside of the Auris has been given a new dashboard with very soft-to-the-touch interior panels. It has a new central audio visual display which houses a CD/DVD, Aux/USB functionality, Bluetooth, Radio and reversing camera.
Everything from the air vents, gear lever and door handles have a more high-quality appearance and there are four trim levels available, ranging from the X to the XR which comes with all the extras and trimmings including auto headlights, colour multi-information display. A push-start button on the dashboard, leather upholstery and special seats with lumbar support for the driver are also included.
The Toyota Auris 2015 has an all new and improved suspension and steering setup, which is a big improvement on the previous model’s ride comfort and handling. Toyota has also gone to great lengths to improve on the soundproofing in an effort to reduce noise reaching the cabin. They have upgraded the suspension and steering setup of the car. This creates better ride comfort and handling. They have also looked at the noise inside of the cabin, extra soundproofing has been installed to reduce driving noise.
Engine in the New Toyota Auris
The Auris comes with three engine variants. The first is a 1.3-litre petrol engine which puts out 73 kW and 128 Nm of torque with its average fuel consumption at 5.8L/100km.
Then there’s the more powerful 1.6-litre petrol engine with 97 kW and 160 Nm torque. This engine uses 6.2L/100km while the CVT (Automatic) transmission returns 6.0L/100km. The modified Auris 1.8 Hybrid will also be available later this year and will be launched in South Africa in September 2015.
The new Auris also has a three-year/100 000 km warranty. All of Toyota’s Auris models come standard with a five-year/ 90 000 km service plan and the added benefit of 24-hour ToyotaCare Roadside Assistance.
