Pakistani Community prefers imported cars on locally manufactured vehicles and there is no doubt because about every third car in most of the big cities of Pakistan is imported. Toyota Auris is a hatchback vehicle that’s not manufactured locally but found in Pakistani markets, as it didn’t have so many features but still it is much better than other vehicles of the same class in Pakistan.
Exterior, Interior Design of Toyota Auris:
From the outside Auris looks simple and attractive; because this vehicle is sold in multiple countries including Japan, USA and Europe so do they have made it competitive both from inside and outside. The front of the vehicle is not much aggressive for 2018 while for an upcoming model this has been made much better, it has simply been designed the front for the 2018 model that looks good because of beautiful HID headlamps and daytime running LED lights.
Not from the exterior but from the inside it feels sporty, there has been used high-quality soft-touch material on doors and dashboard. It has a leather-wrapped steering wheel and leather trim on seats which makes it a good choice as a daily driving vehicle. In terms of space and storage, it has reasonable storage indoors, in the glove box, and under the front center armrest. Center armrest and air vents are also available for rear-seat passengers that making it comfortable for rear-seat passengers as well.
Engine & Power:
This front-wheel-drive vehicle is available with 2 different engines including diesel and gasoline, current one is with a 1.2-liter gasoline engine which produces 116 horsepower with 139nm@4200 rpm of torque.

This vehicle has high fuel efficiency which is about 20 kilometers per liter in the city while 25 kilometers per liter on the highway.
This is a daily use vehicle, not performance-oriented as mentioned above it takes about 10.1 seconds to accelerate 0-60 which is less as compared to the vehicles of the same class. Its engine to not have much power which is why it didn’t give you the best driving experience while using thing vehicle for traveling within the city is the best option.
Comfort and Ride Quality:
This is a comfortable vehicle as long as you are using this for traveling within the city but for long journeys, this may feel a little uncomfortable. The rear seats of the vehicle have decent head and legroom but for passengers having a height of more than 6 feet headroom can be little problematic, front seats of the vehicle are much supportive and adjustable. It has very basic rear suspensions while vehicles of the same class have better and more sophisticated suspensions. The rear doors of the vehicle did not open wide this is a little pain and also it has a small rear window that didn’t allow much light to enter and does not give a better view of the road behind.
