Toyota upgrades Avensis and Auris for 2016
Under the changes, the Toyota Touch 2 multimedia system has been upgraded to the latest 2016 specification, which was unveiled at this year’s Geneva Motor Show. The centrally mounted seven-inch touchscreen now offers revised menu pages for accessing the system’s functions and, where the Toyota Touch 2 with Go is installed, for satellite navigation operation. Access to the My Toyota online customer portal has also been improved.
Toyota Touch 2 with Go has been repackaged as a single navigation offering for Auris and Avensis, supplied as standard with three years of free map updates and connection to online services. The on board connectivity gives easy access to live information services for fuel prices, weather, parking and traffic conditions local to programmed routes, helping with easier and more efficient journey planning. It also enables use of online information, entertainment and social media apps from Google Search, Google Streetview, Aupeo!, Aha and Twitter.
Toyota also announced changes for the Auris Hybrid hatchback and Touring Sports wagon, with a powertrain retuning to provide a more linear acceleration feel as the driver applies the throttle.
Lastly a new Platinum Bronze metallic paint option has been introduced for Avensis and Auris. Customers can also specify a new Solid Blue for Auris.
The 2016 Avensis and Auris are on sale now.
