New grade and new options for 2014 Auris range

The Toyota Auris hatchback and Touring Sports wagon ranges are to gain a new Icon Plus grade, and will benefit from a raft of equipment updates, when the 2014 model goes on sale in June, priced from £14,945.

Available to order now, the new Icon Plus grade sits above the existing Auris Icon and starts at £18,445 for the 1.33 petrol hatchback. It adds new-design 16-inch alloy wheels, rear privacy glass and folding door mirrors. A new metallic paint finish, ‘Tungsten Blue’, will also be offered.

Inside, Icon Plus models boast heated sports front seats with electric lumbar support control, and, on petrol and hybrid models, cruise control. Toyota Touch 2 with Go features as standard, and is equipped with a 6.1-inch touchscreen display, reversing camera, bluetooth and iPod connectivity, full navigation, and Google Street View™. The system is also the first of its kind to feature Panoramio™, which provides imagery of the vehicle’s location or a chosen location to help pinpoint and recognize destinations. Icon Plus grade will be available on petrol, diesel, and hybrid versions of Auris and Auris Touring Sports.

Customers looking to put their personal stamp on an Auris will be pleased to know that the options list has been revised in light of the introduction of the Icon Plus grade, and a whole host of accessories are also available.

A panoramic roof is available for Icon Plus and range-topping Excel models, while leather upholstery is available as on option on Icon, Icon Plus and Excel grades. For an extra dose of luxury, a full black leather interior with white or blue contrast stitching is available as an accessory.

For those looking to keep their Auris showroom fresh, a Parking Pack is available on Icon and Icon Plus models, and provides body-coloured front and rear parking sensors, which can be switched off when desired. Meanwhile, the Protection Pack adds front and rear mud flaps, scuff plate, a boot liner and a bumper protection plate. It is available on all grades except Active.

Finally, to add an extra splash of style, a Chrome Pack is available and adds chrome side sills and boot trim. There are also four custom alloy wheel styles to choose from.

The 2014 Auris range is available to order now with customer deliveries in June. Further information on the entire Auris range is available on the designated section of the Toyota UK website.

  1. Hello Jon
    Thanks for your post and sorry for the delay in replying due to a Blog redesign.
    We do not have any news unfortunately regarding the specification of future product but we do recommend you stay tuned to our Blog for the latest news though. Sorry that we do not have any info at this stage but thank you for your interest in the Toyota Auris.

  2. Just taken delivery of a Auris Touring hybrid with leather seats which incorporate blue stitching. The leather panel on the dash has white stitching. Should this not be blue?

    1. Hi Rob
      Thanks for your post and sorry for the delay in replying.
      We did just need to double check this with our product team who have confirmed that we do have two colours of stitching in the Auris Touring Sports. The cars are manufactured with white stitching on the dashboard as a neutral colour to reflect different types of interior however we do take on board your comments about the contrast with the leather seats. We do regularly review our product specification and we will take this into account during future product reviews. Hope that this helps clarify but do let us know if you have any other queries.

  3. Hi Eric, you can get a space saver wheel fitted. We suggest you get in touch with your local dealership, who will be able to arrange this for you. Thank you.

    1. I have and the price quoted I felt was high, however I will have to pay it if I need peace of mind, I am sorry I was not told when I traded my old Auris in for this one, you live and learn.
