The current Toyota Auris was introduced four years ago, but it looks like the Japanese company is already testing the next-generation model on public roads.

Auto-spy caught the new Toyota Auris in Europe. A strongly disguised prototype hides a new front panel, but in general, one should expect a familiar design that follows the path of evolution.

There is information about a hybrid with a 1.8-liter unit, working on the Atkinson cycle, and two electric motors.
