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 does it live up to the hype? well in fact. It can be driven and easily and it drives just a Camry. Put your foot and it’s out of sight.

Most is that off the line performance is despite maximum power and being at relatively high

It is also a silky smooth the only exception being torque steer which in seemingly a fair way before it breaks traction. Can we get one in rear-wheel-drive

My only other criticism of the is that can it really be called a car when it’s the same as the Camry? Bigger motor Better car yes. Worth an $6000-$10,000 than Camry. but the 200kW gets it over the

The boot size is impressive to say the Where it’s lacking is good old width compared to the of Falcon or Commodore. There’s (Falcon) and 80mm (Commodore) in width but, for mine, it makes a huge difference. Ask rear seat passengers and sure they’ll agree.

Geez I feel like shiela from the Pauls ad on telly low-fat, full-fat, dollop. .

Toyota Australia manager sales and marketing Callachor said the TVC highlights the that Aurion has the most and best fuel economy naturally aspirated Australian cars.

The Australian large-car has been much the same for than 40 years — by just two players, Mr Callachor

We’re letting the market that, with Aurion, a new player in the game — and the game has changed.

No longer are large-car buyers limited to the their dad bought or what won at

It’s no longer enough to have brute force. You to have both power and you have to have performance and In addition, safety, reliability and the really matter in today’s

Yes, the game has changed.
