The long wait is finally over as latest reports indicate that the 2018 Toyota Auris edition is a few months to the inauguration. To begin with, the revised version is set to mark the start of a new series of hatchbacks. Going by the reports, the next-gen Auris is in the initial stages of production. Our spy images show that it adopts the style concept from its immediate forerunner. Being a small vehicle, the Toyota Auris incorporates interesting and unexpected proportions into its small, rounded body shape. The front end of the new Toyota Auris shows the sign of belonging to the prominent Japanese automaker. Basic trims stand on 16-inch alloy wheels with projector-beam headlights wrapping the front façade.
2018 Toyota Auris – Stylish Design
Speaking about the exterior, the 2018 Toyota Auris outlines some stylish components that were previously unavailable. Besides, the body design is much sportier than previous editions. Its frontal aspect accommodates a chrome accent grille with state-of-the-art LED lights. There are large vents that allow air passage toward the engine to stabilize the vehicle. Besides expressing a rich and flashy nose, the fascia outlines sharp lines and curves evident in the outer peripheral. The exterior is made from lightweight components—aluminum and carbon fiber. Hence, its overall weight is slashed to guarantee a smooth acceleration and driver comfort. The quality design for the refurbished Auris is not limited to its entrance. At the rear end, it wears large bumpers to protect the elevator door against hampering the functioning of reflectors and flags. Aside from the revamped LED tail lamps, a redesigned spoiler presents a classy look to the new machine.
Luxurious and Spacious Cabin
The upcoming 2018 Toyota Auris has a luxurious and spacious cabin. We are likely to find leather-coated seats with ample shoulder room and legroom. An insulating material covers its dashboard and tunnel gearbox, allowing for a noise free ride. Additionally, this edition presents a newly designed instrument dashboard with consistent light effects. It brings along with it a 4.2-inch TFT display unit, which displays speedometer with sports on either side. Also stacked inside the cabin is an upgraded control panel, which ensures everything gets monitored with absolute ease. We also expect to find revolutionary music systems with surround sound speakers for a trailblazing music. There is an advanced cooling system that offers uniform cooling throughout the cabin. Overall, occupants will experience comfort like no other. Other possible upgrades in the 2018 Toyota Auris include the pre-collision system, lane departure warning systems and road signaling systems.
Engine and Transmission
The 2018 Toyota Auris will probably use a 1.6-liter power plant that produces 112 HP of output power. The supposed powertrain will be hooked to a six-speed automatic transmission. Some rumors claim that the new Auris edition might come with a couple of propulsion systems. At the time of testing, its rate of acceleration was 0-60 mph in just 10 seconds.
Expected Date of Arrival and Price
The 2018 Toyota Auris release date is still the mystery. The automaker chose to keep silence regarding the expected value and release date of the revised Toyota Auris edition. Nevertheless, it is likely that the new Toyota Auris version will grace the auto showrooms toward the end of 2017. As per our best estimates, we think the price of the 2018 Toyota Auris should be in the range of $17,000-23,000. It competes against the likes of Opel Astra, Ford Emphasis, Peugeot 308 and Volkswagen Golf.
