The Euro-spec Toyota Auris hatchback and Touring Sports wagon will be shown alongside the redesigned Toyota Avensis at the 2015 Geneva show next month. The U.S.-spec version of the Auris, which is known as the Scion iM, was shown in concept form at the 2014 Los Angeles auto show in November.

While powertrains for the Scion iM remain a mystery, the Toyota Auris will still be available with a hybrid variant, which the automaker says accounts for about half of 2014 European sales. The redesigned Auris will also feature updated gasoline and diesel engines.

Just like the Avensis, the Toyota Auris receives an upgraded interior with new comfort and safety features. The reveal of the redesigned Auris and Avensis along with the updated Aygo and Yaris from last year mark the refresh of the automaker’s core European models. With manufacturing of the Auris and Avensis in the U.K., we wouldn’t be surprised if the Scion iM is also built across the pond.

Speaking of the Scion iM, that model is expected to debut in production form at the New York auto show next month before arriving this fall. The iM we saw last year looked remarkably like the Auris we see now, except a little lower and with slightly more dramatic styling.
