2013 Toyota Auris Touring Sports Interior. The Toyota Auris Touring Sports is the only C-segment wagon to offer customers the combined benefits of Toyota’s Easy Flat, one-touch foldable rear seats, a double level loadspace floor, a two-way tonneau cover, a roller-type luggage net, shopping bag hooks, aluminium roof rails and a 12 V outlet in the luggage compartment.
Rear seats in place, the loadspace is 1115 mm long and 1452 mm wide with a superior capacity of 530 litres. With the rear seats folded flat, loadspace length increases to a maximum length of 2047 mm, a maximum height of up to 890 mm and a class-leading total capacity of 1658 litres.
2013 Toyota Auris Touring Sports Exterior. The Toyota Auris Touring Sports also shares the hatchback’s steeply raked windscreen, which flows into an extended roofline featuring aluminium roof rails and an integral rear spoiler. At 1553 mm long by 960 mm wide, the optional Skyview panoramic sunroof is one of the largest in the segment.
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 Toyota Auris Touring Sports features a new bumper and tailgate design, with the loadspace sill set 100 mm lower than that of the hatchback, above a chrome floating rear spoiler. As with the rest of the Auris range, a new, wraparound rear combination lamp design reinforces the shape of the rear wing, new D pillar design and rear screen.
2013 Toyota Auris Touring Sports Engines and Transmission. The Toyota Auris Touring Sports will be available with the same engine range as the Auris hatchback; a choice of 1.33 litre Dual VVT-i and 1.6 litre Valvematic petrol engines, improved 1.4 litre and 2.0 litre D-4D diesel engines, and the first full hybrid powertrain in the C-segment wagon market.
Capable of operating both independently and in combination, the HSD system’s 1.8 litre VVT-i petrol engine and electric motor generate a maximum power output of 136 DIN hp (100 kW), equipping the Auris Hybrid Touring Sports with a 0-100 km/h acceleration time of 10.9 seconds and a maximum speed of 180 km/h.
Conversely, the Toyota Auris Touring Sports full hybrid returns class-leading CO2 emissions of only 86 g/km, and significantly lower NOx and NO particulate emissions than diesel engined cars of comparable performance.
In conjunction with Toyota’s Stop & Start technology and an advanced Multidrive S transmission, CO2 emissions are highly competitive across the entire Auris Touring Sports engine range. The 1.33 and 1.6 litre petrol engines generate 127 and 139 g/km respectively, the 2.0 litre diesel 115 g/km, and the 1.4 litre diesel just 109 g/km.
