Toyota will reveal the new 2013 Auris, Auris Tourer Estate and Verso MPV at this month’s Paris Motor Show.
We’ve already had the reveal of the new Toyota Auris ahead of the Paris Motor Show, but it won’t just be the new Auris that’s on Toyota’s stand.
For the first time we are getting a Toyota Auris Tourer (Estate) added to the Auris range and aimed straight in to the firing line of the new Ford Focus Estate and Vauxhall Astra Sports Tourer.
Perhaps the USP of the Auris Tourer will be the introduction of a hybrid Auris Tourer to the range with the same hybrid underpinnings as the Auris Hybrid, plus the usual selection of diesel and petrol engines.
The new Toyota Verso MPV – this time pointed in the direction of the Ford C-Max – with new, more interesting, styling following the design cues in the Auris. It comes with a 2.0 D-4D diesel engine which has been tweaked to offer stronger performance and lower emissions and improved economy.
Also sitting on Toyota’s Paris stand will be the new Yaris Trend – a Yaris SR with sport cosmetic bits – Toyota’s TRD Performance accessories, a GT86 racing simulator, Toyota Racing TS030 Hybrid WEC race car, FCV-R fuel cell vehicle, Prius Plug-in and the Yaris Hybrid.
The Paris Motor Show kicks off with press days on 27th September.
