Review Summary:

Derived from the Camry, the has always been slightly superior – aesthetically and mechanically.

Pros

* Strikes a good balance with both, interior and exterior designs.

Cons

* Seems overpriced for what it offers.

Looks

The off-spring of a Toyota Camry and Lexus ES, the Aurion bears the best of both worlds. While the economical styling of the Camry influences the majority of its exterior, the upmarket fittings of the Lexus ES adorn the interior. Distinguishing itself from its lower priced sibling, the 2015 Toyota Aurion welcomes a rear spoiler, a pair of revised head and tail lamps, and a splash of chrome along the bodywork, to connote its finer status.

Feels

Positioned as the Camry’s sportier sibling (while the Avalon takes the lead on the luxurious side), the Aurion isn’t home to carbon fiber trim, sports seats, a flat-bottom steering wheel, or anything you may associate with a sports car. Instead, it’s silver and wood trim that works its way into the dashboard and door panels, and compliments the plush leather ever so gracefully.

Engineering

Adamant to improve straight-line stability and reduce Cd figures for a quieter ride and improved fuel efficiency, the boffins at Toyota have fitted the Aurion with covers on the under floor and aero stabilizing fins to enhance the flow of air.

What’s on offer?

Generating 268 horsepower at 6,200 RPM and 336 Nm of torque at 4,700 RPM from its 3.5 litre V6 engine, the Aurion gets mated to a six speed automatic transmission and is able to charge to a 100 km/h in just 7.2 seconds. Enjoying reaching its top speed of 230 km/h just as much as cruising on the highway, the Aurion is an economical one, returning average fuel readouts of 9.2 litres for every 100 kilometres.

Summing it…

With just one variant available, those interested in the 2015 Toyota Aurion will have to be willing to shell out AED 114,900. A steep sum when you consider the Mazda6 and Renault Safrane cost significantly less.
