2013 Toyota Auris

Toyota is set to replace the current Auris physique with a totally revamped body. From the looks of it they've opted for more sporty and aggressive exterior. Styling is unique and appealing, none of that "you have to get used to the shape" scenario here.

Interior looks good too. A total make over here as well. It will be interesting to see if there will be technology upgrades for the interior, Toyota has gone basic for past models in this department, and have a lot of catching up to do; power windows and mirrors are not a selling point anymore, these should be standard.

Engines available are 1.3 and 1.6 petrol, 1.4 diesel and hopefully we'll get to see the 1.8 Hybrid in South Africa as well. Toyota has always been on top of things when it came to their actual engines, so I don't think you will be dissapointed there.

One of the things that do dissapoint, well recently anyway, is the pricing, lets hope that they will get it right this time. Or at least introduce finance options that will make it affordable. We should be able to see this model in our local market in the first quarter of 2013.
