The Auris Touring Sports will be the first in the segment to be available with a hybrid powertrain and marks the latest stage in Toyota’s hybrid model line-up.


The Estate version has the the same 2.6m wheelbase as the hatchback but is 285mm longer for extended loadspace.

The Touring Sports has the same front-end design as the hatch. The rear has an extended roofline with aluminium rails and an integrated spoiler.

The B-pillars are gloss black and you can spot chromed-trim along the sides.

The bumper and tailgate have a new design, with the sill set 80mm lower.
