Last Toyota Aurion leaves the factory…
The last Toyota Aurion rolled off the production line yesterday marking the end of an 11-year manufacturing run in Australia.
THE LAST TOYOTA AURION rolled off the production line yesterday, marking an end to the Aurion from Toyota Australia’s local line-up. It’s been the largest passenger car Toyota offered here for the last 11 years and racked up more than 110,000 sales locally, with 70,000 sent out for export.
The Aurion succeeded the Avalon as Toyota’s largest family car, launching at the Melbourne Motorshow in 2006. The Aurion, at the time, offered the most sophisticated V6 Toyota Australia had ever offered; the 3.5-litre V6 made 200kW at 6200rpm and 336Nm of torque at 4700rpm.
Melbourne-based Chadstone Toyota Dealer Principal, Graeme Ward, took delivery of the final Toyota Aurion – high-grade white Presara – meeting with the team who built the final car. Production of the Camry Hybrid and Camry petrol vehicles will finish up in September and October, respectively. The new Toyota Camry will launch here in November.
