The car will be the first estate car in its segment to be available with a hybrid drivetrain, alongside conventional petrol and diesel engine options.
The car is expected to use an updated version of the 1.8-litre petrol engine and electric motor used in the current five-door Auris, which uses a nickel-metal hydride battery set-up.
The Auris Touring Sports is the first estate version of the model, and Toyota is promising versatility, with a design that doesn’t compromise space and practicality.
The front-end design remains the same as the hatchback, but a roofrack, a rear spoiler, gloss black B-pillars, and chrome-accented trim set it apart from that model.
The bumper and tailgate have been redesigned, and new rear combination lamps sit below the new D-pillars and rear screen.
