2019 Auris Touring Sports: New Corolla Is Getting Sleek Station Wagon Version In Europe

We’ve come across another prototype 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. Beyond the base 114hp 1.2-liter turbo petrol unit, we’ll see the wagon being offered with the same 120hp 1.8-liter and 178 HP (180 PS) 2.0-liter gasoline-electric hybrid units, 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.

    is the Corolla still built on the 20 year old platform? I think it is.

      It’s built on the TNGA platform which was debuted with the Prius like two years ago.

    Considering the proliferation of CUVs, the U.S. is fortunate to even have the choice of the Hatchback (especially w/ the new rev-matching 6-speed manual offered in both trim levels).
