The Corolla, known in Europe as Auris, was finally found conducting a winter test in northern Sweden. Can be believed this car will be the Toyota Auris 2018 which is rumored to be using a new platform. It is quite possible considering C-HR has started and this new platform fits with Auris size.
Auris can not be underestimated, although this is not Toyota’s main choice to raise global sales. But keep in mind that in Europe this car is able to record fantastic sales, proven 144,000 units sold throughout 2016. Hybrid variant is the best-selling, sold 80,000 units. This gives a firm reason for the company to keep Auris in the market, especially for hybrid variants.
Based on the photos not much has changed on the outer view of Toyota Auris 2018. If you see the rear lights are still the same, it is true. It looks like It will only be a facelift model, but not yet certain. As is the custom of Toyota who launched minor upgrades every year. But the most basic difference is a new platform of TNGA. This platform can adapt to different segments. Once C-HR adopts a global modular architecture, it seems to be continuing on the Auris. Since the Company is targeting in 2020, all units are built on the TNGA platform.
With the new platform is believed 2018 Toyota Auris able to reduce weight, increase rigidity, increase engine efficiency and dynamics and affect the mechanical parts, the comfort level is better. All systems will be refined including machine area. Likely to use a standard 1.5-liter engine with 100hp power. There is a possibility Auris 2018 will also use a 1.2-liter Turbo engine. This machine does get less power than the current unit, but all the mechanical systems are increasingly perfected. The plug-in hybrid variants are also in the development stage but not yet confirmed will be launched together or not.
We will look forward to update the features and specifications of Toyota Auris 2018 as soon as this car gets certainty to be launched into the market. Hope this year’s end has been introduced to the public.
