2017 Toyota Verso And Auris Add More Equipment In UK

The Verso and Auris have lined up with the rest of the 2017 Toyota range in UK with additional features.

Available in three grades – Active, Icon, and Design, the 2017 Toyota Verso has been specified with keyless entry and push-button start in the mid-range model, which also benefits from new seat trim, rear door-sunshades, and rain-sensing windscreen pipers.

Taking the Design trim up a notch are the new 17-inch black alloy wheels, rear privacy glass, panoramic roof, part-leather upholstery, and the latest Toyota Touch 2 with Go multimedia connectivity and navigation system, which can be controlled by voice commands or a central touchscreen. This version also comes with 3 years of free map updates.

Additionally, the most important offering of the range has also welcomed a 1.6-liter Valvematic petrol engine, with 130 PS (128 HP) and a six-speed manual transmission, which comes to complement the 1.8-liter and 1.6-liter D-4D diesel units, whose performance numbers remain unchanged.

As for the Toyota Safety Sense suite of driver assistive features, which includes Lane Departure Alert, Pre-Collision System with Forward Collision Warning and Autonomous Emergency Braking, and automatic high-beam, this is offered at no extra cost on the Icon and Design, and it’s available as an option on the entry-level Active.

The British-built Toyota Auris has been also enhanced for the 2017MY with the introduction of new 17-inch alloy wheels and Alcantara trim inside on the Design models, while the Excel can be specified with leather seats as a factory-fit option. Moreover, the cars can also be ordered with a new exterior color, called Tokyo Red.

Just like the aforementioned Verso, the 2017 Toyota Auris also benefits from standard Safety Sense on all grades except for the entry-level Active, and the features match those of the former as well, with the addition of the Road Sign Assist.
