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.
