Toyota Corolla and Auris – How Much Difference Does IRS

In a post by our managing editor that part of the European market referred to as the “C segment”, Americans would call cars, some of our readers on how “Toyota Corolla” means things in different parts of the In Europe, Toyota sells a branded car based on its subcompact The car that Toyota sells in that is most comparable to the American Corolla is called the there. While built on the platform, the Auris comes a multilink independent rear while the U.S. spec gets a less sophisticated beam setup in back. At the drive for the launch of the 2014 that I attended a few months ago I Holdridge, vice president of for Toyota Division, Toyota Sales, U.S.A, how come gets IRS and we don’t. Holdridge it had to do with differing driving needs and expectations of American and consumers. One might thing means that American drivers care that much better handling, but it seems to me the differences between the Auris and the spec Corolla may have to do with the expectations of Europeans, American driving styles.

While through the comments on Derek’s that contrast the Auris to the American Corolla, it occurred to me while our readers were the differences between the two related I actually can speak to the topic. In the of a couple of months last I had the chance to drive the latest spec Corolla and a couple of Auris models sold in As a matter of fact, when I Toyota’s Hybrid World event, which brought all of the hybrid models that sells around the world, I test drove both the Touring Sports station and 5 door hatchback Auris they had for us to sample because and I discussed possibly doing a review of the Euro ‘Corolla’.

You want to know, though, how the handles compared to the Corolla. the Auris hatch and wagon good mechanical grip and the driving line well. in is sharp and steering feel is at lower speeds, though at speeds there is significantly feel. My audio notes say the 5-door hatch’s steering quite as crisp as the wagon’s, but Auris cars react to steering inputs and seemed to a bit more steering feel the Corolla.

One of the design goals of the redesigned Corolla was to give the car better dynamics. Toyota doesn’t to be seen as the maker of boring The new Corolla’s rear suspension had tweaked towards that with relocated shock In the end, though, the Auris’ sophisticated rear suspension better handling. How much Enough that an enthusiast or car would notice, but I’m not convinced an average consumer on either would find the difference

It’s not a night and day kind of I’d say that the difference in handling the Auris and the Corolla S is about the delta as between the Corolla S and the sporting Corolla LE. Ride went in the other direction, the Corolla LE being the most and the Auris having the firmest The two Auris models handled similarly, though the 5-door had a bit ride than the wagon.

I asked the Toyota rep about why gets the Corolla without IRS and was that they tailor to markets my initial thought was Toyota product planners think Americans can appreciate a sophisticated, better handling Upon reflection, considering the than dramatic difference in the way the handles compared to the Corolla, it to me that which rear Toyota chooses for which may have more to do with expectations than with of Americans. Europeans may expect IRS, if in the case of the Corolla platform it make a dramatic difference in world performance.
