The hybrid powertrain is covered by a five-year warranty and the warranty on the batteries can be extended to 10 years.
In Poland, the hybrid Auris costs zl.84,900, which is zl.10,000 more than the version with a conventional engine and automatic transmission. The hybrid begins to pay for itself after around 50,000 kilometers.
