2020 Toyota Auris/Corolla Hatchback Release Date, Specs
Countdown to the arrival of the 2020 Toyota Auris, one of the most advanced compact in its category. In autumn, we will know more details of its range and its commercialization will not start until the beginning of 2019.
The third generation of the Toyota Auris made its world debut at the last Geneva Motor Show in March and it is expected that at the beginning of October on the occasion of the celebration of the Paris Motor Show, we will know practically all the details of its range and of equipment with those that will come to Europe.
2020 Toyota Auris Platform & Features
What is confirmed in the 2020 Toyota Auris is that there will be no diesel engines since in the new evolution of its global construction platform TNGA (Toyota New Global Architecture) there are no glimpses of diesel engines. The third generation will be a larger car, with a wheelbase that grows to 2.64 m and a load capacity in the trunk around 400 liters.
At a dynamic level, Toyota announces improvements on its new Auris 2020, thanks in large part to a lower center of gravity and a wider track width. As for the range of engines, we have already advanced before that there will be no diesel, so in its supply of engines, depending on the market in which it is sold, there will be gasoline and hybrid versions.
The propellant supply of the 2020 Toyota Auris, according to countries, will start with a 1.2 Turbo gasoline of 116 HP. The great novelty in mechanical matters will come with the possibility of choosing two hybrid versions (until now, it has only been selling with a hybrid variant). One of the first versions of this type will be driven in its thermal component with the well-known gasoline 1.8 engine , although the big star of the range will be the new hybrid version with a new 2.0-liter petrol engine, a variant that will also incorporate both the new generation of the Toyota RAV4 SUV and the C-HR. This version will have a total power of 180 HP and will have greater autonomy in purely electric mode (the Japanese firm ensures that the Hybrid 1.8 version will also improve significantly in terms of efficiency).
In terms of safety and driving assistants, the 2020 Toyota Auris will incorporate the most advanced in this field thanks to the adoption of the global safety system Safety Sense 2.0. In this great technological umbrella, it is necessary to include systems such as the recognition of traffic signals, the pre-collision system, the detection of pedestrians and cyclists or radar cruise control, among others.
2020 Toyota Auris Sport Versions
Worldwide, the Toyota Auris that we know in European countries is marketed under the name Corolla Hatchback in the United States and simply as Corolla in his native Japan. Well, when inquiring about the Toyota Japan press website, the details of the new Corolla 2020 (our Auris 2020) are already known and includes an innovative Sports version.
The Toyota Corolla Sport 2020 (or Auris Sport) incorporates the typical sports details on the outside and inside that tend to distinguish this type of version. The side skirts or the larger alloy wheels are not missing on the outside, while the interior features a combination of bright colors and various types of materials. On a technical level, both the suspension and the steering have been optimized in this Corolla (Auris) Sports version.
We will be attentive, then, to everything that happens in the New Toyota Auris 2020, one of the most revolutionary compacts of recent times. The third installment of the Japanese model has everything in its favor to make things very difficult for the new generations of the VW Golf, Seat Leon and Mazda 3.
