2010 Toyota Auris - Click above for high-res image gallery

Toyota isn't saying much about the refreshed 2010 Auris right now, waiting for the Geneva unboxing, but here are a couple of photos to get you excited. It looks like there will be little nips and tucks all around, such as new fog light enclosures and lower front grille profile. Standard runners will get six engine choices, and the Auris HSD Hybrid will arrive for those who insist on going green. It will go on sale this Spring. A short press release is after the jump, and a coupe of high-res images await your eyes below.

PRESS RELEASE

On sale throughout Europe from early spring, the new Auris 2010 model range will make its European debut at this year's Geneva motor show.

Complemented by the Auris HSD's full hybrid technology, this unique line-up will offer customers the most comprehensive range of powertrains in the C segment.

      Oh, great. Another pointlessly ugly car from Toyota. Thanks, guys!

      Too expensive for what you get.

        TigerMil@ Stop that joke already. Don't you get tired? The story is already months.

        BTW, It's an okay design, but I don't like the front and headlight so much. C'mon Toyota you can do better than this. I have no idea why Europeans like front end design. I may one day like it, when they redesign.

        Great news! The Dacia Sandero got a facelift...

        ...oh wait.
        • 4 Years Ago
        I wanna see the accelerator pedal assembly...LOL!

      I'm surprised that they were able to get stopped to take those pictures.

      I think it looks like the nissan leaf concept.
      Will be interesting to see what the hybrid brings.

      lol.. at the typical comments on this blog.
      what would be more 'exciting' for everyone...?
      If mustang put out another car with another 40hp maybe or if somebody added a 5th chrome bar to their truck grill?
      oooooooohhhhh.....ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh

      This facelift has been on sale for a couple of months now in Australia (as the Corolla hatch): http://www.toyota.com.au/corolla?DCSext.LPLink=Corolla|Model

      Typical Toyota lame is all I see.

      Looks exciting! You know what's even more exciting? Accelerating out of control!

        Bah... Toyota Aygo = Citroën C1 = Peugeot 107. They're triplets with different badges, all buit in the same plant on the same line by the same workers. And since Toyota is recalling the Aygo... And not all are being recalled.

        Peugeot 107s and Citroen C1s, built in a joint plant with *Toyota*, in the Czech Republic.

      Notice the picture is taken in the open desert, even Toyota doesn't want people around in case it unintentionally accelerates out of control...

      Exciting stuff.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Another fine example from the purveyors of the mundane. I suppose the bulby roundness of the car will cause less damage when it accelerates into something.

      Oh goodie. I can hardly contain my excitement. /sarcasm

        I'd rather have my accelerator pedal stick - period.
