Toyota has launched a new special-edition Aurion to celebrate the company's 50th anniversary in Australia. The refreshed Aurion "Touring" Special Edition offers more than $2700 of added equipment at no extra cost compared with entry-level Aurion AT-X sedan.

Quad Cam V6 Aurion delivers more power than any other normally aspirated Australian-made six-cylinder car with 9.9 litres/100km fuel economy.* The 3.5-litre Quad-Cam V6 develops 200kW of power at 6200rpm and 336Nm of torque at 4700rpm on regular unleaded petrol. Power output rises to 204kW with premium unleaded fuel. The 2009 Aurion Touring has a range of equipment over and above Aurion AT-X. It has stylish 17-inch alloy wheels (including alloy spare wheel) and a rear wing spoiler.

The special-edition model also features a Sportivo radiator grille, sports headlamps, sports rear combination lamps, "50th Anniversary" decals and sports pedals.

Other exterior features on Aurion Touring SE, over and above AT-X, include front foglamps, "Touring" badge and front and rear sonar parking sensors.
