The news desk at AutoTelegraaf in The Netherlands picked up an interesting bit of news about the possibility of a Toyota Auris V6 with 4WD. Toyota technician Soichiro Okudaira claims that the Auris (Blade in Japan and soon the Corolla in the USA) has an engine bay which can fit engines ranging from 1.4- to 3.5-liters (four and six-cylinder), and that the rear-wheel suspension is capable of 4WD. The Japanese Blade already comes with 4WD and Toyota is considering equipping the soon-to-be-launched US Corolla with a V6. Regretfully, there will be no Auris V6 in Europe just yet.
