Paris Show Wrap-up: Toyota Auris Concept

Last week at the Paris show, Toyota showed off a new C-segment compact that employs the company's recent "Vibrant Clarity" design vocabulary — a combination of soft, flowing lines and hard surfaces introduced with its FSC concept at last year's Tokyo motor show. The Auris space concept showcases how deft spacial engineering can make even miniscule spaces comfortable and inviting for passengers. A panoramic glass roof, flat passenger floor and high windows, the company says, contribute to SUPER LIGHT-AND-SPACE POTENTIAL, while the 19" alloys, visible brake calipers and chrome exhausts integrated into the rear bumper make for FAST MAXIMUM SPORTY GO!
