AURIS ADVANCES ON ALL FRONTS WITH TOYOTA OPTIMAL DRIVE

More power, improved fuel economy and lower emissions for 2009 range

KEY POINTS

  • Toyota Auris revised for 2009 with new Toyota Optimal Drive powertrains
  • Introduction to range of new 1.6-litre Valvematic petrol engine with nine per cent better fuel economy, eight per cent lower CO2 emissions, but six per cent more power compared to previous 1.6 VVT-i unit
  • 1.4 and 2.0 D-4D and 2.2 D-CAT 180 engines revised for more torque, lower emissions and improved fuel efficiency
  • Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) added to 2.0 D-4D engine, bringing emissions in line with Euro 5 standards
  • New six-speed manual and MultiMode transmissions
  • Revised grade structure with four trim levels – T2, TR, T Spirit and SR180
  • On sale now, prices from £12,900 on the road

Auris is the latest Toyota model range to reap the benefits in performance, fuel economy and emissions from Toyota Optimal Drive technology.

Following the introduction late last year of the Toyota Optimal Drive 1.33-litre Dual VVT-i engine with Stop & Start, Auris gains the new 1.6-litre Valvematic engine and revised versions of its established 1.4 and 2.0 D-4D and 2.2 D-CAT 180 units. The result is cleaner, more fuel-efficient motoring with no compromise in performance or driving pleasure, plus significant savings in ownership costs compared to its market rivals.

Toyota has also rationalised Auris into a new four-grade structure (T2, TR, T Spirit and SR180), with a few minor adjustments to the equipment specifications.

NEW 1.6-litre VALVEMATIC ENGINE

The new 1.6-litre Valvematic engine, built at Deeside in the UK, is expected to be the largest-selling unit in the 2009 Auris range. It benefits from Toyota Optimal Drive technologies, notably variable valve lift, enabling it to deliver more power and torque than the previous 1.6 VVT-i engine, while at the same time making significant improvements in fuel consumption and emissions levels.

The fuel economy delivered by both the 1.33 Dual VVT-i and 1.6 Valvematic petrol engines in Auris, combined with the per-litre cost of diesel fuel and the price premium of diesel models, make them a compelling choice for customers who traditionally might opt for diesel-powered cars on the grounds of running costs.

Power output from the engine is up by 8bhp (8 DIN hp) and maximum torque rises from 157Nm at 5,200rpm to 160Nm at 4,400rpm. It is available with either a new six-speed transmission, or new six-speed MultiMode system with paddle-shift controls. With the manual gearbox, CO2 emissions are down eight per cent at 153g/km and fuel consumption is improved by nine per cent in combined cycle driving at 43.5mpg. With MultiMode the reduction in emissions is 15g/km to 146g/km, while fuel economy rises by 4.7mpg – more than 11 per cent – to 45.6mpg (combined).

Savings for retail customers

Compared to its principal market rivals the 2009 Auris with the Toyota Optimal Drive 1.6 Valvematic engine delivers clear savings over a three-year ownership period – more than £2,700 in fuel and VED road tax costs compared to the segment’s best-sellers, the Ford Focus and Vauxhall Astra.

Savings for fleet and company car drivers

The 1.6 Valvematic engine’s reduced CO2 figures and fuel economy, together with highly competitive pricing combine to make Auris a stronger proposition for fleet managers and company car drivers. Earning a Benefit-in-Kind tax band of 18 per cent, the TR model attracts a three-year tax cost of £1,533 (based on a 20 per cent tax liability). Combined with its price advantage over its key market rivals, this translates into appreciable cost savings.

REVISED 1.4-litre AND 2.0-litre D-4D ENGINES

The 89bhp (90 DIN hp) 1.4 D-4D diesel engine has been upgraded with Toyota Optimal Drive technology, with fuel economy increasing by six per cent to 60.1mpg in combined cycle driving (58.9 MultiMode). Carbon dioxide emissions have been reduced, falling from 132 to 125g/km for manual TR models, 127g/km for versions with MultiMode. At the same time, torque performance is stronger by eight per cent, rising to a maximum 205Nm between 1,800 and 2,800rpm.

As well as delivering CO2 emissions that are among the best in Auris’s segment, the engine is more responsive. This has been made possible by new piezo-electric injectors that control fuel volume and injection timing more accurately and give a shorter injection time.

The 2.0 D-4D engine in Auris gains a diesel particulate filter (DPF), which brings emissions performance in line with Euro V standards. It delivers 125bhp (126 DIN hp) and maximum torque of 310Nm between 1,800 and 2,400rpm via a six-speed manual transmission. CO2 emissions are reduced by 13g/km to 138g/km and fuel consumption is improved by 4.7mpg to 54.3mpg (combined cycle).

The engine benefits from higher fuel injection pressure of 2,000bar and more efficient piezo injectors with smaller holes for a finer spray. Combined with an optimised combustion chamber shape, this allows for an improved fuel-air mixture and more efficient combustion, contributing to better fuel economy and improved torque at low engine speeds.

REVISED 2.2-litre D-CAT 180 ENGINE

Applying Toyota Optimal Drive technology to the 2.2 D-CAT 180 diesel engine, featured exclusively on the SR180 grade, has yielded better fuel economy and emissions. Combined cycle performance is 47.1mpg and CO2 output is 158g/km, against previous figures of 45.6mpg and 164g/km. Like the 2.0 D-4D engine, it also benefits from improved piezo-electric fuel injectors, operating at higher pressure – increased from 1,800 to 2,000bar.

NEW GRADE STRUCTURE

The Auris grade line-up has been simplified into four trim levels – T2, TR (focus for the majority of sales), T Spirit and SR180. Minor changes have been made to the equipment specifications, most notably making Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) available as an option on 1.4 D-4D TR models. The Smart Entry and Start system, fitted as standard to T Spirit and SR180 models, has been improved to provide automatic unlocking of the passenger doors and boot, in addition to the driver’s door.
