Tweaks for Toyota Avensis and Auris

Toyota Auris Hybrid

Toyota has made a number of improvements to the British built Auris and Avensis models for 2016.

The Toyota Touch 2 multimedia system has been upgraded to the latest 2016 specification, which was unveiled at this year’s Geneva motor show. The centrally mounted seven-inch touchscreen now offers revised menu pages for accessing the system’s functions and, where the Toyota Touch 2 with Go is installed, for satellite navigation operation. Access to the My Toyota online customer portal has also been improved.

Toyota Touch 2 with Go has been repackaged as a single navigation offering for Auris and Avensis, supplied as standard with three years of free map updates and connection to online services. The on board connectivity gives easy access to live information services for fuel prices, weather, parking and traffic conditions local to programmed routes, helping with easier and more efficient journey planning. It also enables use of online information, entertainment and social media apps from Google Search, Google Streetview, Aupeo, Aha and Twitter.

The Auris Hybrid hatchback and Touring Sports wagon have had powertrain retuning that provides closer alignment between the increase in engine and vehicle speeds, creating a more linear acceleration feel as the driver applies the throttle.

A new Platinum Bronze metallic paint option has been introduced for Avensis and Auris. Customers can also specify a new Solid Blue for Auris.

Both cars will be available to drive at Company Car in Action next month, held at Millbrook in Bedfordshire. To book visit www.companycarinaction.co.uk.
