Having revealed the car earlier, Toyota has dropped the full skinny on the all-new 2013 Toyota Auris hatchback. Designed specifically for Europe, the latest Auris is “bolder, more dynamic, better equipped and cheaper to run than ever before.”
The 2013 Auris will initially be available with five engines: two petrol units, two diesels and one hybrid. All engines have been optimized for improved fuel-efficiency and reduced CO2 emissions, while improving output or keeping it intact. Toyota says the new Auris emits an average of just 109 g/km of CO2, which represents a 13 percent reduction compared to the outgoing model.
The patrol range consists of a 1.33-litre unit making 98-hp (99 PS, 73 Kw) and 128 Nm (94.4 lb-ft) of torque, delivering an average fuel consumption of 5.4 lt/100 km with CO2 emissions of 125 g/km, as well as a more powerful 1.6-liter unit making 130-hp (132 PS, 97 Kw) and 160 Nm (118 lb-ft) of torque, returning 5.9 lt/100 km (5.7 lt/100 km with the automatic) on average and emitting 138/km of CO2 (134 g/km with the auto).
On the diesel front, you have a 1.4-liter D-4D that makes 88-hp (89 PS, 66 Kw) and 205 Nm (151.2 lb-ft) of maximum torque, consuming just 3.8 lt/100 km combined and emitting CO2 of just 99 g/km when using the standard six-speed manual transmission and the start/stop system. There is also a 2.0-liter D-4D diesel that produces 122-hp (124 PS, 91.2 Kw), delivers 4.3 lt/100 km in average fuel-consumption and emits 112 g/km in CO2. Both engines are available with either a six-speed manual or six-speed MultiMode transmission.
The 2013 Auris Hybrid utilizes a 1.8-liter petrol engine paired with a 60 Kw electric motor to produce 134-hp (136 PS, 100 Kw), allowing for a 0 to 62 (100 km/h) acceleration of 10.9 seconds and a top speed of 180 km/h (112 mph). It can be driven in EV mode for up to 2 km at speeds of up to 50 km/h, emitting just 89 g/km in CO2 emissions in combined driving.
In addition to a more fuel-efficient powertrain lineup, the 2013 Auris comes with major improvements inside and out compared with the outgoing mode. Its lower overall height and 4 percent reduction in frontal projected surface area lower wind resistance, improving the car’s overall aerodynamic performance. The interior is larger, more refined and more stylistically pleasing.
Some key functional features include a sunglasses holder, coat hooks, a coin box, 4 cup and 4 bottle holders, a sliding centre console armrest with document holder, dashboard and rear centre console storage space for small items, 3 12-Volt accessory sockets and an AUX external input plug, a removable package tray, deck hooks and a dual level loadspace deckboard.
