What can you do for a bloke who is so scared of flying? Easy. Buy him a Toyota Aurion TRD.
This is a powerful ride that offers performance to make HSV and FPV drivers a little jealous. A supercharged 3.5 litre V6 engine delivers a scintillatingly responsive 241kW of power and a whopping 400 Nm of torque. The TRD Aurion is the world’s first production car to be fitted with a four-lobe Eaton TVS supercharger. Because the supercharger is an air pump driven by the engine’s crankshaft, it spins independently of the engine’s throttle position, standing by to deliver instantaneous boost on demand. Toyota boast that this level of performance also links hands with an average fuel consumption of just 10.9 litres/100 km. What better way to introduce a man scared of flying to similar sensations felt in the air being felt in a flying Aurion TRD. On the road the car sits incredibly snug. Fast turns through tight bends are tackled in a very level and balanced manner. The chassis is simply sensational.
Inside the cosseting interior, there is plenty of space for five beefy front rowers. Leg room is delightfully impressive, and once you open the boot lid you will be amazed at the capability this machine has for the big trips away with the family out of town. The Toyota Aurion TRD is certainly the place to be for effortless, powerful cruising in wonderful space and remarkable comfort. Well done to Toyota for providing such a complete package.
Inside the elegant interior are plenty of high-end luxury items. For the Toyota Aurion TRD 3500 S, red or dark grey leather accents and alcantara inserts create a racier elegance, while the plum leather accents of the Aurion TRD 3500 SL evokes a more prestigious sports feel. The infotainment system performs very well. The sat-nav is very accurate while the iPod adaptor runs very hot with muso buffs like me. The 6 disc in-dash CD changer with MP3/WMA compatibility isn’t the only thing that will impress the car’s occupants. The eight-way power adjustable driver’s seat, and six-way power adjustable passenger seat in 3500SL go along way to adding the icing on the cake to what is truly a very luxurious interior for a car offering such potent performance on the road. The Smart Entry and Start System on the TRD Aurion 3500SL, and the SL’s dual zone climate control air conditioning with an optional DVD Satellite Navigation with Bluetooth compatibility are “classy as”.
Pamper your other half with loads of luxury and safety features while keeping the kids and your right foot satisfied with endless levels of responsive acceleration whatever the speed. The Toyota Aurion TRD is a superb long distance cruiser and, perhaps, it goes a long way to offering a flying alternative.
