Toyota Auris Hybrid, FT-86, RAV4, Prius plug-in

Published: 15 February 2010

Toyota has confirmed its line-up for the 2010 Geneva motor show – and it’s fighting back from the throttle recall crisis with a handful of new launches in every which market sector.

The Toyota Auris Hybrid Synergy Drive (HSD) gets its world debut in production spec; it’s the first mainstream hybrid car to be manufactured in the UK – and you can read all about it in the new March 2010 issue of CAR Magazine on sale on Wednesday 17 February. CAR went up to the Burnaston factory in Derbyshire for a deep dive on the new mass-market hybrid car from Toyota.

The second hybrid on show will be the new Toyota Prius Plug-in Hybrid, which will be exhibited in full production guise for its European debut.

It’s also the European debut of the FT-86 sports car concept – and the first time we’ve seen the facelifted Toyota RAV4, which adopts a distinctly grown-up face. Is it just us, or there are equal shades of Toyota Landcruiser and VW Tiguan in the new 2010 RAV4 model?
