The Toyota Auris Touring Sports will be making an appearance at next month’s Geneva Motor Show. The Japanese brand has released additional details about the car which will be 285 mm longer than the hatchback version. It has a 2,600mm wheelbase and can provide 530 liters of cargo room when the seats are in place.
If you need more, the rear seats can be folded flat in order to increase space to 1,658 liters. With the seats up, the load area stands at 1115mm long and 1452mm wide, while with the seats folded it is increased to 2047mm, with a height up by a significant 890mm.
The boot sill of the estate version is 100mm lower compared to that of the hatchback which means it should provide the user with an easier loading/unloading process. Other features of the Auris Touring Sports worth mentioning include a 12v socket in the trunk, easy-flat one-touch folding rear seats, luggage net and shopping bag hooks.
As far as the engine lineup is concerned, Toyota will offer the car with a 1.33-liter Dual VVT-I and a larger 1.6-liter Valvematic unit. There will also be a diesel engine in the form of a 1.4-liter D-4D. The Japanese brand will later on introduce a hybrid variant with a 1.8-liter VVT-I and an electric motor, generating a combined output of 136 HP.
