THE headline on the press release at the of the Toyota Aurion said The has changed. Has it bloody-well ever.

In the that Holden released its all-new Commodore, the Toyota wins the Large Car of The Year

I haven’t seen an upset that since the AU Falcon billed as the new wondercar for Ford was launched at the Sydney Motor much fanfare: within two minutes Holden of pulling the of the Monaro concept. Ford was

My old man, a Holden man, who to Ford about the same as Lowndes, Ingall et al, was beside when I left this one him for a day to drive. Is there any loyalty any

So now the Aurion AT-X has trumped the Omega, Ford Falcon XT and 380 ES. The name Aurion is derived the ancient Greek for tomorrow or light. Prophetic.

Where last foray into cars, the Avalon, was more for who wear cardigans, the Aurion is in looks and temperament.

It has the most and powerful engine ever in a Toyota vehicle in Australia a new 3.5-litre Quad Cam V6 — 200kW of power at 6200rpm and of torque at 4700rpm on regular petrol. You can squeeze another 4kW out of it 95-octane unleaded fuel.

V6 engine features dual technology that varies the of both the inlet and exhaust providing optimum power and — the first Toyota in Oz to do so.

So it live up to the hype? Surprisingly in fact. It can be driven nice and and it drives just like a Put your foot down and out of sight.

Most impressive is that off the performance is solid despite power and torque being at high revs.

It is also a smooth drivetrain, the only being noticeable torque which kicks in seemingly a way before it actually breaks Can we get one in rear-wheel-drive guys?

My only criticism of the Aurion is that can it be called a large car when the same size as the Camry? motor yes. Better car Worth an extra $6000-$10,000 Camry. debatable. but the 200kW it over the line.

The boot is impressive to say the least. Where lacking is that good old compared to the likes of Falcon or There’s 40mm (Falcon) and (Commodore) difference in width for mine, it really makes a difference. Ask your rear passengers and I’m sure agree.

There are five grades in order of equipment level: Sportivo, SX6, Prodigy, ZR6 and Presara.

Standard features air conditioning, power driver’s cruise control, power and mirrors, remote central steering wheel-mounted audio dual exhaust, six airbags, Stability Control, Traction and anti-lock brakes with Assist and Electronic Brakeforce

AT-X options are 16-inch wheels, the combination of alloy and rear wing spoiler, and paint.

Prodigy standard over AT-X include auto air conditioning, 16-inch wheels, six-CD in-dash clearance and rear reversing and a heap of trim upgrades.

Sportivo SX6 standard features AT-X include sports and additional rear bracing, alloy wheels with tyres, sports lights, radiator grille, body sports seats, leather and there inside, six-CD multi-changer and more.

Sportivo ZR6 has features of dual-zone auto air and a lot more the dealer can tell you

Top-of-the-range Presara includes the features, over and above grade, 17-inch alloy with Michelin tyres, and Bluetooth controls on steering telematics with three-year subscription, rain-sensing windscreen reverse camera, driver’s and exterior mirror position (two settings), auto-tilt mirrors on reverse, smart (including boot release) and start, AVN Satellite Navigation Bluetooth and moonroof.

Geez I like that shiela the Pauls Milk ad on telly full-fat, extra dollop. .

Toyota Australia divisional sales and marketing Matthew said the TVC highlights the fact Aurion has the most power and fuel economy among aspirated Australian six-cylinder

The Australian large-car market has much the same for more 40 years — dominated by two players, Mr Callachor said.

letting the market know with Aurion, there’s a new in the game — and that the has changed.

No longer are Aussie buyers limited to the cars dad bought or what won at Bathurst.

no longer enough just to brute force. You have to both power and economy; you to have performance and control. In safety, reliability and the environment matter in today’s world.

Yes, the game has changed.
