Now, more than half a year later, we have returned to the Toyota Auris new generation. However, to our surprise, engineers Japanese firm have taken to walk a prototype. Yes, totally camouflaged. In any case, it is a very important detail because it confirms that the project is at a very advanced stage. Known in some markets as the Toyota Corolla, the new Auris will come loaded with new features.

One of the main changes you will find in the next Toyota Auris will be related to architecture because it will use the new tnga platform (Toyota New Global Architecture).
