Toyota Australia's new flagship sedan - the Toyota Aurion V6 - delivers on the unique demands of Australian large-car buyers.
It has the most advanced and powerful engine ever offered in a Toyota vehicle in Australia - a new 3.5-litre Quad Cam V6.
The engine develops 200kW of power at 6200rpm and 336Nm of torque at 4700rpm on regular unleaded petrol.
It has ADR 81/01 fuel economy of just 9.9 litres of 95-octane unleaded fuel per 100km#.
Power output rises to 204kW with 95-octane unleaded fuel.
All grades of Toyota Aurion are fitted with a six-speed automatic sequential gearbox.
All Aurion grades are also equipped with Vehicle Stability Control (VSC).
Toyota Aurion is the only Australian-made big six to comply with Euro IV emissions.
Toyota Aurion scores four stars on the Federal Government's Green Vehicle Guide - better than any of its six-cylinder rivals in the VFACTS large passenger category.
The Aurion V6 range starts at $34,990 (RRP*) - a price that includes the 200kW V6 engine, adaptive electronic six-speed automatic transmission, six SRS airbags, Vehicle Stability Control, Traction Control and anti-lock brakes with Brake Assist and Electronic Brakeforce Distribution.
Standard features also include air conditioning, power driver's seat, cruise control, power windows and mirrors, remote central locking, dual exhaust and security alarm.
Toyota Australia's senior executive director sales and marketing, David Buttner, said Aurion - built at the company's Altona manufacturing plant in Melbourne - defines Toyota's view of the future for Australian six-cylinder cars.
