Toyota Auris 1.33

Toyota is looking to showcase its efficiency prowess with the 1.33 Dual VVT-i. Walker reports.

Ten Second

Toyota’s Auris is one of those hatchbacks that gets the closer you look at it. That’s the case with the advanced Dual VVT-i petrol with StopStart technology Most buyers in this who prioritise low emissions and economy look to diesel engines but the presents a viable petrol alternative.

Background

Excitement can be After all, new car sales suggest that most buyers take the safe — a car that prioritises virtues and concentrates on getting the right. A car, in fact, Toyota’s Auris. With a VVT-i petrol engine and technology, it’s more still. Toyota has been itself at the forefront of the drive to fuel consumption and emissions in our It pioneered petrol/electric hybrid with its Prius but in recent its efforts have been somewhat by other marques aboard the green bandwagon in droves with environmentally-focused of their own. Toyota’s is what it calls Optimal Technology, a programme to be implemented its model range (rather being restricted to specific which uses various to improve efficiency. The Auris VVT-i uses Optimal Technology and Toyota’s StopStart to boost its green credentials.

Experience

For reasons that may not be apparent, Toyota would us to refer to its 1.3-litre Dual engine as a 1.33-litre. This to round down is rooted in a to underline the fact that is a modern powerplant developed to work in tandem with StopStart system and not merely old faithful 1.3 with StopStart on. In the Auris range, it actually a 1.4-litre VVT-i unit but have concentrated on reducing its and weight to the extent that similar in size to the three-cylinder engine fitted to the Aygo and iQ That this 1.33-litre is also available in the iQ illustrates how little it is. The engine develops and a maximum torque output of at 3,800rpm, which equates to an 100Nm per litre. The 0-60mph of 13.1s isn’t stellar but is it the point of this Auris. seen elsewhere in the automotive how much can be achieved in terms of gains when a number of small modifications work The 1.33-litre Auris certainly has a big of small improvements in its locker. Its have been specially and weigh just 180g compared to 280g in the old 1.4-VVT-i The air intake channel has been to optimise air flow, the intake is made of lightweight resin and the profile was tweaked to cut weight and On top of all that, there’s Toyota’s VVT-i intelligent variable timing technology and, of StopStart.

Design and Build

When it to styling and design with Auris, practicality is everything. The curves are cleaner on the latest which have a deeper that can house integrated fog a more shapely bonnet and swept back into the It’s not one of the more memorable efforts on the family hatch but the Auris does will in areas. The car’s platform has an length of 4,220mm incorporating a wheelbase. This means the wheelbase represents 61.6 per of the car’s total length. speaking, the higher the percentage, the space is afforded to people than oily bits. an overall height of 1,515 and a of 1,760mm, the Auris is one of the biggest hatches around, although the does much to disguise bulk. The cabin design is striking, mainly thanks to the dashboard design which the controls for the stereo and ventilation up and within easier reach of the The gearstick also falls easily to hand thanks to the centre console but you can forget sliding across the cabin to via the passenger door when crammed the Auris into a space that’s a bit too tight. quality is as good as anything in the and these facelifted models this more effectively the use of classier materials. There’s touch plastic for the dash top and a silver finish for the eye-catching console.

Market and Model

Three and door bodystyles are offered to 1.33 VVT-i customers, with a pair of trim — T2 and TR. As you’d expect Toyota, standard equipment are excellent. The T2 model includes air front electric windows, an CD stereo with USB connection, central locking, a flat-cottomed steering wheel and 15-inch wheels. Which leaves issue of safety, a vital one for any car success in this sector to Look at the facts and it’s clear that the Auris achieve its Five Star NCAP safety rating by The combination of a driver knee and a collapsible steering column key factors in the 35 point, 5-star for adult occupant protection. A Intrusion’ cabin design and up to airbags boost its safety from the start and contribute to the performance this car also for child occupant protection. key benefit in this respect is the way ISOFIX anchorage points been included on the outer seats. Euro NCAP awarded Toyota a class-leading out of four-star rating for pedestrian

The Auris is brimming with innovations to make it more efficient and on the planet but it’s StopStart gets top billing. In a conventional car stuck in traffic or waiting at the the engine is running and burning but in this Auris, as soon as you the clutch and move the six-speed into neutral, the engine Release the clutch and it restarts seamlessly so the theory is that the of StopStart should have no on the way you drive. Together with the engineering and design solutions on the this helps the Auris to a 48.7mpg combined economy and emissions of 136g/km. There are a of diesel-engined economy models out strip the Auris 1.33-litre on and emissions but if you prefer the lower costs and lower fuel of a petrol car, there much in the family hatch to better it.

This reluctance to down is rooted in a desire to the fact that this is a powerplant developed specifically to in tandem with Toyota’s system and not merely Toyota’s old 1.3 with StopStart bolted on. In the range, it actually replaced a VVT-i unit but engineers concentrated on reducing its size and to the extent that it’s in size to the three-cylinder 1.0-litre fitted to the Aygo and iQ citycars. this 1.33-litre unit is available in the iQ illustrates just how it is. The engine develops 100bhp and a torque output of 132Nm at which equates to an impressive per litre. The 0-60mph performance of isn’t stellar but neither is it the of this Auris.

On top of all that, Toyota’s Dual VVT-i variable valve timing and, of course, StopStart.
