Toyota has produced several hatchbacks over the years and one of them is the Toyota Auris. As you've probably come to learn, the Toyota brand is synonymous with reliability and its no different in the Auris. If you're in the market for a Toyota Auris for sale for the reasons we've mentioned and more, you're probably wondering 'where can I find a Toyota Auris for sale near me?' – good question!
Take a look at our Surf4cars homepage and you'll find a simple and easy to navigate vehicle search system at your disposal, to help you find the exact vehicle you're looking for. Your second hand Toyota Auris is only a few clicks away. We have a wide selection of vehicles from a variety of dealerships across South Africa. But before you go ahead and part with your hard-earned money, let's help you make an informed decision by giving you a brief rundown on the Toyota Auris.
The Auris is a C-segment hatch back available with a conventional internal combustion engine as well as a hybrid version for those looking to leave a small environmental footprint as possible. In the former variant, the Auris is powered by Toyota's proven 1.6-litre 4-cylinder petrol engine, featuring VVTI (Variable Valve Timing Intelligent) technology and what Toyota refers to as Valvematic. Simply put, these systems assist your engine in running as efficiently as possible and produce consistent and linear power from the moment you put your foot on the accelerator. When it all comes together, this smart 4-cylinder engine produces a smooth 97 kW and 160 Nm of torque. If you’re looking for an Auris for sale, you probably love this engine for its ability to happily rev into the upper end of the rev-counter without protest. It's paired to a 6-speed manual gearbox, with a 6th gear designed to promote low fuel consumption while cruising. What more could one ask for, right?
You could ask for the hybrid version, honestly speaking. Here the Japanese manufacturer has utilised a 1.8-litre engine to power the slick Toyota Auris, but it doesn't perform its duties alone. To assist in running the hatch is a high voltage battery as well as an electric motor. The Auris's 1.8-litre engine alone will produce a total output of 100 kW and 142 Nm. To aid the petrol engine, the electric motor can provide an additional 207 Nm, meaning the Auris will never run out of steam! When you're feeling very green and eco-friendly, you can select EV mode and put the Auris into full-electric mode for speeds of up to 40km/h. Typically, this would be during slow moving traffic when the vehicle is prone to high fuel consumption – in the Auris your fuel consumption and emissions drop to zero. The transmission of choice here is a CVT sending power to the front wheels.
When you find an Auris car for sale, youll immediately notice that Toyota has done a good job with the interior. In the Xr variant, you can look forward to a touch screen display with CD, USB, iPod and Aux input. An audio system with six speakers is part of the package and can be operated through a sporty multifunction steering wheel. Wait, there's more! You also get a reverse camera for hassle-free parking and manoeuvring.
Now that we’ve given you a thorough rundown of this intelligent vehicle, you're probably asking yourself "how much is a Toyota Auris?" Well, this will really depend on a few factors. Firstly, what mileage does your desired vehicle have? What year model is it? And finally, what condition is it in? These are all the things that will determine the price of a used Toyota Auris for sale on the Surf4cars platform. Happy shopping!
