2013 Toyota Auris Tourer revealed

The 2013 Toyota Auris Tourer has been unveiled ahead of its public debut at the 2012 Paris motor show.

Toyota revealed details of its all-new Auris last month, but there was no information about this new estate version.

A single picture has been released, which shows the new model alongside the Auris hatchback. No details have been made available, but we'd expect the Auris Tourer to be a practical load-lugger that will compete with cars such as the Ford Focus Estate, Hyundai i30 Tourer and Vauxhall Astra Sports Tourer.

The 2013 Toyota Verso MPV is also included in the picture, and will be at the Paris show, too. It gets a face-lift to bring it into line with Toyota's latest family look, as seen on the latest Avensis, Prius and Yaris Hybrid models.

Toyota says the Verso has been 'significantly revised', with a new 2.0 D-4D diesel engine and changes to improve the ride, handling and refinement.

New Toyota Auris, Auris Tourer and Verso models will make their public debut at the 2012 Paris motor show

New accessories for the GT86 will also be showcased in Paris. A range of Toyota Racing Development (TRD) bodywork and performance upgrades will be available.
