The new 2018 Toyota Auris is on the doorstep away from you. That’s a good news thought for Auris lovers. Auris is an classic beauty with own specifics and characteristics. Maybe we can say it’s not exactly the most popular Toyota car, but it is nice, reliable and most of all practical. Auris overall owns everything what could need a person from 21 century, when we are talking about cars. So let’s see Toyota’s new hatchback in more details.
Exterior and Interior
The new Auris is available in Auris Touring Sport, Excel Trim levels, in Business edition. With this new platform, the engineers get more space. There are new aerodynamics, new rear and headlights, fog lamps. The weight is reduced as well. Many details stayed the same, especially the V shaped nose , what is actually the main characteristic, namely the trade mark of the car. In it’s categhory it has to compete strongly with other rivals, as with the Vauxhall Astra, Ford Focus, Mazda 3, Seat Leon etc.
The inside cabin looks more fresher, but for some critics it is still not eough inspiring. It is very comfortable, it contains the latest technology. Honestly, we have to agree with car engines, beacuse they say it can’t compete with the rivals in this time, for example with the VW Golf, or with Ford Focus, but, we think that they are so close, and getting better and better. Inside of the Auris is actually simple and pretty, but it doesn’t contains quality materials, as they used plastic instead of more quality materials as wood or leather. Beside this, there are also many positive things. The electronic part is vell solved, it is easy to use. It contains automatic air-conditionig, rear-view camera, heated door mirrors, heated front seats, intelligence parking assistance etc. So actually, you can see, it is equipped whith quite good stuff.
