New Toyota Auris, aka Corolla iM, has only one non-hybrid powerplant

"We will no longer develop new diesel technology for motor vehicles, we will concentrate on hybrids in the future", said Johan van Zyl in Zurich. It's a refinement of the successful hybrid market presence that's been going on for more than two decades, with one model focusing on fuel efficiency just like before and the second hybrid option going for the dynamic stance.

Toyota has pulled the covers off its all-new Auris hatchback at the Geneva motor show, showing the world the vehicle that will go into production at its Burnaston factory in Derbyshire later this year. Toyota aims to meet this by raising the total share of hybrid auto sales to over 50% and launching all-electric vehicles by 2020.

Making its world debut at the 2018 Geneva motor show, the third generation Auris features a more dynamic exterior design and, with a brand new 2.0 litre full hybrid powertrain joining the engine line-up, marks the debut of Toyotas dual hybrid strategy.

For several years, HEV versions have been the dominant powertrain where offered. Toyota Australia hasn't confirmed the outputs but says it offers "substantially more power and torque" than the current Corolla engine. Combined with the multi-link rear suspension, these changes are said to contribute to better handling and stability without compromising ride and comfort.

China is considered as one of the biggest markets when it comes to earning revenue for the movies (ask Aamir Khan). One of the movies we are obviously talking about is Chadwick Boseman and Michael B Jordan starrer Black Panther .

"New Corolla hatch is a more premium and stylish vehicle that guarantees a more rewarding driving experience and places a priority on the highest active and passive safety standards". The new hatchback's lower stance is also thanks to the TGNA architecture.

A bold claim, indeed, but the shift to the TNGA platform makes the new Auris 40-mm longer, 30-mm wider, and 25-mm lower than the outgoing model, which translates into a sleeker shape.

The new Auris is 40mm longer than the vehicle it replaces, and all of this gain is in the wheelbase, a move that should help to increase the amount of room in the cabin. It's created to enhance the perception of width and a low centre of gravity.

The new Auris dynamic design is further emphasised through an optional bi-tone colour scheme, which combines the body colour with a black finish to the roof and all glazing pillars.
