Detailed specs and pricing of the 2011 Toyota Auris range:

Auris Edition
The “entry point” to the Auris range is a stronger proposition than ever before with the introduction of the new Edition grade for 2011. Going beyond the specification established in the previous T2 model, it provides as standard 16-inch alloy wheels, heated, retractable door mirrors that are colour-matched to the car’s bodywork and similarly colour-keyed doorhandles.

These elements are in addition to established features such as air conditioning and a four-speaker sound system with USB port. Island Blue is a new metallic paint option for Edition models, and owners can also specific Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) with Traction Control (TRC) and a Protection Pack for the five-door version (floor mats, mudflaps, boot liner and scuff plates).

The three and five-door Edition models are powered by the Toyota Optimal Drive 1.33-litre VVT-i petrol engine, with Stop & Start and six-speed manual transmission. This delivers official 48.7mpg combined cycle fuel consumption and 135g/km CO2 emissions.

Auris TR
Auris TR, the core model in the range, is newly equipped with rear parking sensors, Bluetooth with voice control and – on the 1.6 Valvematic – cruise control. A new, sporty interior trim has been introduced in dark grey with silver detailing, and analogue meters now feature in the 1.4 D-4D and 1.6 Valvematic versions, adding to the sportier feel.

On the outside, there are new-design five-spoke 16-inch alloys and a new metallic colour choice – Deep Titanium.

Elsewhere the TR retains its core equipment features, including climate control, six-speaker audio with USB, electric windows and front fog lamps.

Auris SR
Auris SR, offered exclusively as a five-door with the 1.6 Valvematic engine and six-speed manual transmission, also adopts cruise control and Bluetooth as standard for 2011, plus the new Deep Titanium metallic paint option.

These add to a specification that includes 17-inch alloy wheels, a rear spoiler, dark-tinted rear privacy glass and darkened headlamp lenses.
