As the last model released in 2012, we can say that it is time for new 2017 Toyota Auris Hybrid. Toyota still uses MC platform seen on Corolla in Japan, but there are changes in design and especially in a hybrid engine with follows all important standards and legislation. This model will be offered only as a five-door hatchback, but there will be higher sports trim. It is actually one of the few hatchbacks with a hybrid engine, which puts Toyota higher on the list of modern and well-sold cars.
There are no much changes in term of outside design of 2017 Toyota Auris Hybrid which will change its position on the market. It is still a small and simple car, with an arched roof, slightly lowered at the end, and thin decoration on the end. It continues in the dense truck door and a little curved bumper. Lights on the rear end are also simple, rhomboidal and incorporated in rear bumper and truck door. The front end is slightly sharp, with thin lights which follow the curved hood line. Wider air intake below them ends with small rounded fog lights. Car side is also simple and without much details. Only a line from the front end to the rear one provides a feeling of modernity and aerodynamics.
The inside of 2017 Toyota Auris Hybrid offers wide and comfort space for five passengers, although it will be comfortable only for four grown people, according to the photos. Adjustable seats covered with quality fabric are 60/40 split and has special additions for water bottles and cups. The large dashboard has many buttons and commands, collected in 7.0-inch touchscreen and around the steering wheel and even on the cabin ceiling. There will be offered everything we expect from this manufacturer, including Bluetooth, USB/AUX connection, radio, CD player and many other things. For safety and stability, there is a rearview camera, airbags, and brake control.
As we expect from Toyota, aside from three versions of petrol engine, there will be offered a 1.8-liter petrol engine with 650V electric motor and nickel-metal-hybrid engines in 2017 Toyota Auris Hybrid. The only transmission paired with all engines for this model is CVT automatic transmission. Besides of many other things, the fuel consumption and gas emission are much below the average, which is great for the manufacturer known to great engines, practical cars, and long durable cars thanks to the good quality of their engines.
