Cape Town - Toyota says their C-segment hatch competitor, the Auris, has undergone changes to its exterior and interior three years after it was launched locally. 

The rear lights now feature a bi-tone design with clear indicator elements and dual-edged light guides.

New details 

The new model also features 16" 'turbine-inspired' alloy wheels shod with 205/55R16 tyres. 

Inside you'll find a leather-trimmed steering wheel and steering controls giving access to the audio and multi-information display systems and integrated Bluetooth functionality.

Expect a leather gear-knob and chrome detailing around the instrument cluster.

The dashboard facia features a high-tech 'carbon tread-plate' motif, which separates the contrast stitched "leather" upper, from the spacious lower glove compartment.

In the back, rear seat passengers are catered for with a centre rear arm rest, incorporating convenient cup holders. 

The familiar 1.6-litre petrol engine, featuring variable valve timing intelligent, produces 97kW/160Nm.

All models use a six-speed manual transmission, with an option of a CVT model in XR specification.
