The Toyota Auris Touring Sports Black design study, with a striking black and red colour theme inside and out, has been developed to show how Toyota’s new compact estate car goes beyond functionality to offer striking looks and desirable quality.

The new, British-built Auris Touring Sports is an attention-grabbing newcomer to the compact estate car market with its class-leading functionality and segment-unique option of full hybrid power. Its dynamic, contemporary Toyota design, load capacity of up to 1,658 litres and CO2 emissions from a tax-busting 85g/km it sets standards for ease of use and ownership costs.

Heralding the new model’s arrival this spring, Toyota has created the Auris Touring Sports Black design study, enhancing the car’s appearance inside and out and demonstrating how an estate/wagon body style can be much more than simply functional.

The exterior design is highlighted by a new Night Sky black metallic paint finish. This contrasts with red 19-inch alloy wheels, red inserts on the front and rear bumpers and an eye-catching red trim on the front grille. The car’s ‘Sports’ element is expressed in twin chrome exhaust pipes and dark tinted rear LED lights. Piano black roof rails and privacy glass add extra premium quality.

The signature colour scheme carries through to the cabin where black leather and double red stitching feature on the steering wheel, door panels, dashboard, sports seats, gear shift lever and handbrake. Red is the feature colour for the instrument panel illumination and the finish on the air vents and cup holders. The cabin also gains high quality carpeting and exclusive sports seats upholstered in black leather and perforated red Alcantara. Alcantara is also used to cover the interior pillars and for the roof lining.
