The 3rd-gen Toyota Auris 2018 gives a hint of what to expect in the future Corolla in hatchback form.

While other car manufacturers have released their high-performance models and electric crossovers with a great excitement, Toyota still stays calm and keeps secret of its hottest model. But still, there has been a noticeable launch coming from the Japanese carmaker - the all-new Toyota Auris 2018. The Auris is also known as a hatchback version of the Corolla in other auto markets. This time, the best-selling model of Toyota changes to a completely new platform and it is expected to be followed by an all-new sedan cousin soon, possibly.

For starters, the newly-launched Auris boasts a more aggressive and rakish look compared to the previous model. Like many newly-released Toyota models lately, the Auris gets a large lower air intake accounting for most of the front fascia’s width. Thin and sleek upswept headlights come to finish the front’s decor, earning the C-segment hatchback a more reckless look.

Moving to the side, the daring theme is also developed throughout with creases and lines. Meanwhile, highlighting the rear quarter panels is a unique line of characters, bringing the rear a more generous look.Upon further inspection, its tail lamps receive the same design as the headlamps while the big rear bumper is placed far away from the body, making the Auris look longer. Unfortunately, no photo of its interior is revealed.

It seems that the sedan will get a simpler design than the hatch and one thing for sure is that it will be derived from the Auris platform. It is built on the latest modular platform of Toyota dubbed TNGA and will also create the Corolla sedan (Altis)’s basis. The sedan is expected to share the same size as the Toyota Auris 2018 to save for its overall length.

Also, the engine specs that were mentioned during the premiere are for European markets. There will be no diesel version and the range will include 3 engine variants, including a 1.2 L CH-R 112 hp, a 1.8 L hybrid 120 hp and a 2.0 L 178 hp for the base, mid-range and top-of-the-line models respectively.

It is predicted that other markets will receive more offers of non-hybrid engines.
