If you want a car that delivers amazing value for the money, the 2020 Toyota Auris is definitely one of the models you should consider. Based on the iconic Corolla, this hatchback has been around for years. It has been redesigned just recently, so we don’t count on more important changes for the next year, at least when it comes to those most basic design characteristics, such as styling and mechanics.
On the other side, a new powertrain is expected to arrive. Of course, we are talking about the new hybrid system, which should continue where the previous model stopped, delivering spectacular efficiency and reliability. Other than a new hybrid powertrain, the 2020 Toyota Auris probably won’t feature any bigger change. We are about to see a familiar layout, characterized by attractive styling and lots of amazing features. Expect to see a new model sometime late in the year.
