Toyota's new UK built compact hatchback

Toyota is set to unveil the new 2013 Auris at the Paris Motor Show this September. The C-segment model reflects Toyota's determination to engineer cars that are more appealing and dynamically engaging to drive, while building on its long-established reputation for quality, durability and reliability.

The Auris presents a more confident exterior design and sits lower than any other C-segment models thus giving it a more dynamic drive and better fuel economy. Its rear portion features a wider tailgate opening and a rear bumper profile that adds a broader stance to it.

The new interior is made more spacious and sports the Skyview, one of the largest panoramic roofs in the segment.

Toyota will be offering the Auris in a choice of three powertrains, hybrid, 1.4-liter diesel and a choice between 1.33 and 1.6-liter petrol engines.

The new Auris has been designed for Europe and will be built exclusively at Toyota's Burnaston factory in the UK.
