Toyota Aurion Touring Special Edition Launched in Australia

Toyota has just debuted the Aurion Touring Special Edition, a new version of the Aurion which is especially supposed to celebrate the company's 50th anniversary in Australia. Obviously, the special edition features a wide array of exclusive equipment and, more importantly, it represents an addition of $2700 worth equipment at no extra cost compared with the entry-level AT-X sedan.

To get straight to the point, the car is powered by a 3.5-liter Quad-Cam V6 powerplant that generates 200 kW (268 horsepower) at 6200 rpm and 336 Nm of torque at 4700 rpm. According to specs provided by the Japanese manufacturer, the car normally-aspirated six-cylinder engine achieves an average fuel consumption of 9.9 l/100 km 923.7 mpg) in combined cycle.

As said, the car comes equipped with numerous exclusive features, including 17-inch alloy wheels, rear wing spoiler, Sportivo radiator grille, sports headlamps, sports rear combination lamps, “50th Anniversary” decals and sports pedals. Outside, the special edition also brings front foglamps, “Touring” badge and front and rear sonar parking sensors.

Interiors have been customized as well, with the 2009 Aurion Touring SE boasting six-disc CD changer, dual-zone climate-control for the air-conditioning, leather-bound four-spoke steering wheel, leather gear lever knob and a multi-information display (trip computer).

And don't forget that all Aurion models come with six airbags, vehicle stability control, traction control, anti-skid brakes and an adaptive six-speed automatic sequential-style gearbox, cruise control, power windows and mirrors, all of them offered as standard.

The newly-launched Toyota Aurion Touring Special Edition is priced at $34,990.
