THE new 2015 Toyota Aurion has arrived with styling updates and increased specification, but without the substantial price cuts witnessed on its new 2015 Camry stablemate.
Aurion's range has been cut to three models with distinctive styling updates - AT-X, Sportivo and flagship Presara - with prices remaining at $36,490 and $40,990 for the formers, and up $450 to $50,440 for the latter.
Standard features across the range include keyless entry and ignition, Optitron dials, 4.2-inch full-colour multi-information display and ToyotaLink connected mobility.
The luxury Presara model introduces lane departure alert and rear cross-traffic alert, as well as LED headlamps and foglamps, while its list of features also includes a blind-spot monitor and auto high-beam.
Buyers of the top-of-the-line version can also opt for an upgrade pack - priced at $1000 - for silver-painted five-spoke 18-inch rims and suspension and steering revisions.
The new Sportivo variant comes with gloss-black five-spoke alloys shod in low-profile tyres, firmer suspension, revised sport steering and a redesigned aero kit.
The entry-level AT-X adopts a new mesh grille and 10-spoke 16-inch alloy wheels, while inside it features a power-adjustable driver's seat.
Toyota's executive director of sales and marketing Tony Cramb said the Aurion updates will be welcomed by family-car buyers wanting a little more style, comfort and fun.
"Aurion Sportivo will attract buyers looking for a family sedan that dials up the fun-to-drive factor with a more engaging drive experience," Mr Cramb said.
"The latest Sportivo along with enhanced features and steady prices across the range will appeal to value-conscious buyers in this segment of the market."
There are also revisions across the range to the instrument cluster and switch gear, while underneath a new pre-load differential on all models claims to improve driveability and high speed stability.
The new Aurion range is available for sale in Australia now.
