Toyota added hybrid grades to the Auris and it went on sale April 18. This makes it the 18th Japanese model to get hybrid grades.
There are two hybrid grades, Hybrid and Hybrid G Package. They are equipped with the THS II with Reduction 1.8L engine hybrid system and get 30.4km/L (JC08 mode). The combined engine and motor give it direct acceleration performance and excellent noise reduction.
The Hybrid G Package, which is the luxury grade, has a white and black two-tone interior and uses real leather and ultra suede for the seats. The interior is both cutting edge and luxurious.
The price for the Hybrid grade is 2,620,473 yen and 2,832,545 yen for the Hybrid G Package.
Toyota also added the sporty 120T RS Package to the 1.2L turbo version. It combines the 120T with its comfortable drive and excellent fuel economy with RS’s sporty design to create a fashionable hatchback. The price is 2,590,037 yen.
