The Toyota company recently launched an improved Auris model during the 2018 Geneva motor show. A variant of this car was recently spotted and it is slightly longer than the standard model that was revealed earlier. The 2019 Toyota Auris Wagon vehicle adopts a similar face like its new Auris counterpart but has some facelift at the rear end.
2019 Toyota Auris Wagon Changes, Exterior
Although many details about the car are still concealed, its exterior design shows that it is slightly different from the standard model. Technically, the car can be categorized as an Auris TS Wagon. It adorns a sharp face like that of a corolla but gets minor upgrades at the back. It uses a different sheet metal characteristic of wagon models. The rear doors lack the upward kink visible in most standard models. Most of the visible changes have been done in the rear sections of the car.

2019 Toyota Auris Wagon 2019 Interior
Just like the recently launched hatchback and corolla versions, the interior design of this car will be based on the TNGA platform. The cabin is expected to get some rejuvenation and acquire features similar to that of the C-HR model. The dashboard would most likely have a larger infotainment system. Some updates are expected in the climate control features. The other standard features of the Toyota Auris model are likely to feature in this release.
2019 Auris Wagon is expected to use a 1.8-liter gas engine similar to that of the C-HR models. A hybrid 2.0-liter variant is also a possibility (from 170-180 ponies) or even a 1.2-liter turbocharged engine. One thing that is clear is that this car won’t be a fully-electric model. Considering the fact that Toyota seems to be moving away from oil-burner options, we can confidently say that there won’t be a diesel variant. In terms of transmission, a continuously variable transmission system is expected.
Price and release date
This car is expected to reach the Asian and European markets towards the end of 2018. In terms of price, the car is likely to trade in the region of $23,500.
