Toyota Auris Hatchback 2014 Exterior
Design-wise, this car has some really great solutions and stylish details. Front fascia with its aggressive-looking elongated headlights, nested fog lights and discreet front grille adds to the sleek design of Auris. When it comes to the side design, there are no revolutionary solutions – and that is a good thing in this case, with currently trendy dynamic lines. Rear side gives an impression of sculpted look, following the pattern of aforementioned perspectives which were designed to increase aerodynamics as well as stability and safety.
Thanks to its interior design solutions, 360-litre boot space and wider hatchback opening; this mid-sized car is perfect for families. Even in the hybrid engine variant, there is an equal amount of storage space as the batteries are located under the rear seats.
Comfort is another highlight of this car, with high-quality materials, great range of seat adjustment and quiet environment thanks to the very high level of sound insulation which means you won’t have engine sounds and road noise distracting you. There is also an option to select a panoramic glass roof – an interesting addition.
