New Exterior Design
The front and rear of the Auris have been comprehensively redesigned to give the vehicle a visually broader stance and a more prestigious, sophisticated road presence. To the front, paired chrome wings are generated from the new, more prominent Toyota logo. Underscoring the front lip of the bonnet, the powerful upper wings run the full width of the car. The less prominent lower wings sweep down into the upper surface of the front bumper, holding the sharply-angled inside edge of new LED headlamp clusters which incorporate LED Daytime Running Lights (DRL).
In profile, the new front and rear styling generates longer overhangs, improving the overall balance of the design. This more sophisticated profile is further enhanced by a new shark fin roof antenna and new, 16" and 17" alloy wheel designs. To the rear, the lower half of the Auris has been completely redesigned to once again add visual emphasis to the vehicle's broad road stance. The width of a deeper, more muscular bumper design is emphasised by the placement of reflector lamp housings at the extremities, and underscored by a thin chrome trim line.
