Toyota Auris Start&Stop   (18/11/2008)

toyota auris start stop

 

The Toyota Auris gains a competitive advantage in the C-segment hatchback market with the introduction of a new engine that delivers lower emissions, better fuel economy and improved power and torque. And with the benefit of Toyota Stop&Start technology, environmental performance is further enhanced, with particular benefit in urban traffic.

The new Auris 1.33 Dual VVT-i Stop&Start has the distinction of being the first Toyota  to go on sale in the UK with the benefit of Toyota Optimal Drive, a breakthrough in powertrain engineering and design technology that will be a feature of all future Toyota models.

Auris is the first model in Europe to benefit from Toyota Stop&Start technology. When the car is stationary, with the transmission in neutral and the driver’s foot off the clutch pedal, the engine automatically and quietly stops to reduce fuel consumption and emissions. When the driver re-engages the clutch, the engine automatically restarts. This brings particular benefits in urban traffic, with a potential 15 per cent improvement in the amount of fuel used and CO2 emissions.

Stop&Start is very quiet, smooth and refined in its operation. In a world-first design, the system has a permanently engaged starter gear mechanism: the starter motor is in direct contact with the ring gear on the engine, which means the engine stops and starts quickly and quietly. Compared to the 1.4 VVT-i, the start-up noise level has been reduced by 9dB and starting time cut from 0.7 to 0.4 seconds.
