2012 Toyota Auris Touring Sports

New Auris Touring Sports

•Touring Sports variant for the Auris model range
•The first wagon available in the C-§egmènt wîth a full hybrid powertrain
•285 mm longer than hatchback wîth increased luggage capacity

Brussels, Belgium -
The new Toyota Auris Touring Sports makes its world debut at the 2012 Paris Motor Show, adding the popular wagon body style to the model range's comprehensive choice of powertrains.

Wagon variants currently represent 25% of the mainstream C-§egmènt sales mix, and the new Auris Touring Sports will be the first wagon in the §egmènt available wîth a full hybrid powertrain.

Combining versatility and dynamic design without compromising loadspace or luggage capacity, the new Auris Touring Sports represents a further diversification of Toyota's application of its HSD full hybrid powertrain.


As wîth the new Auris hatchback, the Auris Touring Sports' bold, dynamic exterior design maximises the aerodynamic benefits of the model's reduction in overall height, and the dynamic improvements offered by its lower centre of gravity.

Sharing its 2,600 mm wheelbase, the Auris Touring Sports is 285 mm longer than the hatchback, all of which is dedicated to the extended loadspace of the new wagon. The new Auris Touring Sports shares the hatchback's new frontal design, which combines Toyota's Únder Priority design language wîth Keen Look detailing to give the new wagon a powerful yet elegant road presence.

In profile, the wagon also shares the hatchback's steeply raked windscreen, which flows into an extended roofline featuring anodised aluminium roof rails and an integral rear spoiler. The extended, three-panel side glazing features blacked-out pillars, including a piano black finish to the B pillar, and is underscored by chrome-accented trim above the bodywork's powerful, rising beltline crease.

To the rear, the Auris Touring Sports features a new bumper and tailgate design, wîth the loadspace sill set 80 mm lower than that of the hatchback and the number plate raised to maintain balance in the proportions. As wîth the rest of the Auris range, a new, wraparound rear combination lamp design reinforces the dynamic shape of the rear wing, new D pillar design and rear screen.
