It has more than the naturally aspirated rivals in its class and better economy than any of the large-six in its class.

Toyota Aurion has developed for the benefit of Australian and others who need a large car.

It is styled for Australian tuned for Australian driving and has the power and comfort required for vast distances.

At the same it is endowed with technology ensures excellent fuel with high levels of and passive safety features as equipment on all models.
