The Toyota Aurion is a large car produced by Toyota. Unveiled at the Melbourne Motor Show in 2006, the Aurion is positioned to take on the large car market despite a drop in 15.7% of sales. The Aurion is greek for "tomorrow" and reveals a new generation of family cars to be sporty, enjoyable and yet, versatile. It replaced the Avalon in Australia and is currently built in Altona, Australia. Other Aurions on sale in eastern Asia have been on production there and are sold as upper-market Camrys.
