To celebrate, a new concept version of the car has also been unveiled, called the Auris Touring Sports Black .
The design study proves the Burnaston, Derby built model offers more than just space and functionality, offering Night Sky black metallic paintwork and red-accented 19″ alloy wheels.
The car also offers red inserts in the bumpers, and red trim on the front grille.
The practical estate car, which has been awarded a five star euroNCAP crash safety rating, goes on sale this summer.
