Toyota Auris

Saturday 19 September 2009
The Toyota Auris is a compact 3 door and 5 door hatchback which shares the same E150 platform with the Toyota Corolla. In Europe, Toyota positioned the Auris as the replacement of Corolla hatchback, while the notchback Sedan continued by the Corolla nameplate. The Auris succeeds the Corolla RunX in Japan and the Toyota RunX (no Corolla badging) in South Africa. Toyota Australia and Toyota New Zealand resisted suggestions from Toyota Japan to adopt the new European Auris name for the Corolla. The name "Auris" is based on the Latin word for "gold", aurum. Japan model went on sale at "Netz" dealers in 2006, while European models went on sale in 2007.
