KYB Shocks OE On New Auris
The already-close relationship between KYB and Toyota has been further strengthened with the news that KYB is to supply front and rear shock absorbers for the new Auris.
This new hatchback is larger than the Corolla, which it replaces, and was designed at Toyota’s European Design Development centre and is one of the first new generation Toyotas to be manufactured in Europe. It has engine sizes from a 1.4 litre petrol to a 2.2 litre diesel and has been engineered to combine excellent performance with good fuel economy and low emissions.
Hajime Sato, MD of KYB Europe, said: “By continuing to supply Toyota, KYB demonstrates its commitment to building successful and long term business relationships with major car manufacturers.”
