Auris estate details announced

Toyota has revealed pricing and specification details for the new Auris Touring Sports estate car.

The range consists of four trim levels and four engine sizes, all designed to cater for the different needs of individual drivers, although some combinations of trim and engine are forbidden.

Active, Icon, Sport and Excel make up the design choices, while buyers can choose from a 1.3-litre petrol, 1.6-litre petrol, 1.8-litre petrol and a 1.4-litre diesel engine.

The 1.8-litre petrol version features a full hybrid drivetrain - making the Auris Touring Sports the first car of its kind to do so.

Prices start at £15,595 for the Active 1.33 Dual VVTi, with steel wheels, climate control, a luggage net in the boot and seven airbags all featured as standard.

Meanwhile, alloy wheels, a double-layer boot floor with a storable tonneau cover, DAB radio and a rear-view camera are all available on the Icon spec, which starts from £18,245.

Hybrid models also begin from this price, with £21,095 the asking price for an Icon 1.8 Hybrid Synergy Drive. Purchasing a Sport trim will add £1,100, taking the entry point for the 1.6-litre petrol engine to £19,345
