2010 Toyota Auris UK details – Hybrid in JulyFri, 22 Jan 2010 00:00:00 -0800
Toyota has updated the Auris for 2010
Back in October we reported on the JDM (Japanese Domestic Market) 2010 Toyota Auris which was a pretty good pointer to what the rest of the world would get in the way of updates to the 2010 Toyota Auris. And it was, with Toyota confirming the UK changes for the Auris and also confirming that the Auris Hybrid will go on sale in July, just as we reported back in June last year.
Exterior changes to the Auris are not huge, but they are noticeable. The front gets a new bumper with integrated fogs (on the TR and SR), new headlights, a tweak to the bonnet and a new grill that brings it in with the Toyota family theme. Door mirrors get turn lights, there are new alloys, revised rear lights and bumper and a chrome strip.
Inside there are revisions to the instrument cluster and some higher-quality, soft-feel plastics on the dash. The handbrake changes shape (whoopee) and the centre console gets a silver finish (oh, dear). You also get a flat bottomed steering wheel and iPod connection. Engine options are the same as before but you only get three trim options – SR, T2 and TR.
No detail on the Toyota Auris Hybrid beyond confirmation it will be launched in July 2010 be a British-built full hybrid Auris HSD.
Nothing much to write home about, just a tweak and refresh.
