AURIS SOARS INTO SPRING WITH NEW SR AND TR

Auris is evolving to meet the needs and preferences of even more motorists with two new grades joining the line-up this spring.

  • SR follows the lead of the flagship SR180 to deliver eye-catching sports styling and specification within an even more accessible price range
  • TR provides a price-friendly combination of generous specification, exceptional safety and superior quality

NEW AURIS SR
Following the launch of the flagship Auris SR180, Toyota is introducing further sporting style to the range with new SR models powered by the 1.6 Dual VVT-i petrol and 2.0 D-4D 130 diesel engines. With great looks, generous specifications and competitive pricing, they are set to appeal to an even wider customer base.

The SR grade moves Auris right to the heart of the “mild sports” market, a fast growing niche that already accounts for more than one third of UK new car sales in the C-segment.

The new versions do more than just look good, benefiting from lowered sports suspension and riding on 17-inch alloy wheels, both from Toyota Motorsport. Other stand-out features provided as standard include a Toyota Motorsport rear spoiler and dark-tinted privacy glass – items shared with the SR180.

They also come equipped with nine airbags, climate control air conditioning, leather-trimmed steering wheel with audio controls, front fog lamps, six-speaker sound system and body colour-matched door handles and mirrors.

The SR is on sale now, in three and five-door body styles priced from £14,495. That represents excellent value to the customer, who gains an additional £1,495 of equipment and styling features at a price that is just £690 greater than that of the equivalent T3 model.

REVISED AURIS TR
The coolest note struck this spring is the introduction of automatic dual zone air conditioning on the Auris TR. The touch-of-a-dial control of left and right-side cabin temperatures tops the bill in a series of new features for the TR grade.

The new look includes a set of lean and smart five-spoke 16-inch alloy wheels, distinctive blue interior seat trim and chrome rear trim detailing. Like the new SR (above), the specification also includes nine airbags, front fog lamps, leather-trimmed steering wheel with audio controls, six-speaker sound system and body colour-matched door handles and mirrors. In spite of their superior specification, TR models cost £310 less than equivalent T3 models, giving total customer value of more than £655.

The TR is available now with 1.4 and 1.6 VVT-i petrol and 2.0 D-4D 130 diesel engines. Optional MultiMode transmission is available with the 1.6 unit.

AURIS GRADE STRUCTURE
The introduction of the new TR and SR models takes the number of grades in the Auris range to six: T2, TR, T3, SR, T Spirit and SR180.
