Flowing from the seamless sweep of a lower bonnet line and steeply raked
windscreen, the new, stepped roof profile further reduces drag, whilst the rear
spoiler is now fully integrated within the rear roofline, connecting seamlessly
with the rear pillar to minimise turbulence in air flowing astern from the

Equal attention has been paid to ensuring the smoothest possible airflow
beneath the new Auris. The underfloor features a front spoiler, a lower
absorber, an engine undercover, front spats, centre floor undercovers, tank
side floor undercovers, a rear floor undercover and rear spats to maximise
aerodynamic efficiency.

This underfloor aerodynamic performance is further enhanced through
the positioning of wing-shaped vertical wings to the centre and rear floor
undercovers, further smoothing the air flow under the vehicle to promote
greater handling and high-speed stability.

As a result of these comprehensive aerodynamic measures, the new Auris’
coefficient of drag has been reduced from Cd 0.292 to just Cd 0.277; and CdA
has fallen from 0.67 to just 0.61.

40 mm, the new Auris has a centre of gravity significantly lower compared to         body control and ride comfort.

The new Auris features either a double wishbone or torsion beam rear
     suspension system. Compared to the first generation, the availability of the
     double wishbone system has now been expanded to include all 1.6 litre petrol,
     2.0 litre diesel and full hybrid models. 1.33 litre petrol and 1.4 litre diesel
     engine models feature torsion beam rear suspension.

     The double wishbone system has been revised to incorporate optimised
     trailing arm bush characteristics and, as with the front suspension, newly
     developed coil springs and shock absorbers featuring reduced spring rates
     and enhanced damping. In combination these measures have improved ride
     comfort, stability and handling.

     Improved Electric Power Steering (EPS)
     To be consistent, the steering had to be adapted to the improved performance
     of the platform. Better control of body movements allowed the engineers
     to implement a more direct steering ration (14.8 instead of 16.0) - a key
     factor in improving driving precision and delivering a more engaging driving
     experience. At the same time, the steering column benefited from structural
     changes, minimising vibration and ensuring a more linear steering feel.

     The new EPS control logic also suppresses steering force fluctuations caused
     by road imperfections to provide better steering control for the driver.
     The steering control unit also manages the amount of self-aligning torque
     according to the vehicle speed for a more refined steering operation.

     Enhanced NVH measures
     Extensive improvements to the new Auris’ NVH measures ensure that the new

JBL GreenEdge Premium Sound System
The new Auris may be equipped with a 9-speaker JBL Premium Sound
System which features GreenEdge technology. GreenEdge technologies are
engineered holistically to ensure that the speakers, amplifier, equalization and
even component placement work together as a cohesive and efficient system,
combining low electricity consumption with high sound quality.

At the heart of the system is a compact, powerful JBL GreenEdge amplifier.
Because the amplifier’s Tracking Power Technology measures audio input
in real time, only the necessary electricity is provided to the amplification
circuit. This greatly reduces heat loss, and effects a 50% reduction in energy
