The heavy black tape successfully hides many of the Auris' styling accents, however a much sportier sleek profile is revealed in these latest shots when we compare it to the Auris currently on the market.

The first shots of the next generation Toyota Auris were caught a few months a go, although we were limited to slightly blurred long distance shots at the time. Our spies have now caught a prototype up close giving us a better look at the new model.

Toyota has already confirmed that this model will benefit from BMW-sourced 1.6 liter and 2.0 liter diesel engines that will compliment the gasoline options. It has also been rumoured the Auris could be renamed when it hits the market at the end of the year.

We expect to see the 2013 Toyota Auris unveiled for the first time at the Geneva Motor Show in March.
