New Corolla Is Getting A Station Wagon Version In Europe, The 2019 Auris Touring Sports

These are the very first images of the 2019 Toyota Auris Touring Sports, the estate version of the all-new 5-door Auris, which we’ve come to know as the new Toyota Corolla here in the States.

So while this camouflage is wrapped really tight around the Touring version, we can estimate that it too will be more spacious than the old/current model, utilizing the same angular front fascia design as its hatchback sibling.

As for the rear, while we can’t see the taillight cutout, the lights could end up resembling those on the all-new RAV4.

Seeing the bigger picture

Since the all-new Auris hatchback’s wheelbase has grown by 40 mm (1.57 in) compared to its predecessor, we can expect a similar growth out of the Touring Sports version, which would put its wheelbase somewhere in the vicinity of 2,640 mm (103.9 in) – more than you get on a Golf Variant.

The Auris Touring Sports will ride on the automaker’s TNGA (Toyota New Global Architecture) platform, which was built to support electrified powertrains such as the 2019 Auris’ 178 HP (180 PS) hybrid unit, or the 1.8-liter one from the Prius. The rest of the engine range should be shared by both versions, with no diesels in sight.

The design of the interior will be another thing that’s shared between the two Auris versions, so expect to see a standard 8-inch touchscreen display, voice recognition, Qi wireless charing, a 7-inch TFT multi-info display on higher spec models, leather upholstery, climate control, and a multitude of active safety features.

When can I get one?

Tough luck if you’re in America, but in Europe, with the hatchback version going on sale by the end of the year, the Touring Sports should follow either shortly after or in 2019.

Once it’s out, it will go on to rival the likes of the VW Golf Variant, Hyundai i30 Tourer, Renault Megane Sport Tourer, Peugeot 308 SW and the Opel/Vauxhall Astra Sports Tourer.
