The Romanian is the highest seed left in the competition after the shock eliminations of Serena Williams, Li Na and Agnieszka Radwanska.
However, she looked in supreme form, thrashing the Spaniard 6-3 6-0 in just over an hour to reach the fourth round.
Halep has won seven WTA Tour titles in the past year and her progression has been matched by best showings at the two grand slams of 2014 so far, having reached the quarter-finals of the Australian Open in January.
And she was in ominous form on Court Two on Saturday, dominating Torro-Flor from the baseline and moving the Spaniard around the clay at will.
Torro-Flor registered 24 unforced errors as a result in the game, and only took six points on the Halep serve in the first set.
The opening game of the second was a much more drawn-out affair on Halep’s serve as Torro-Flor carved out four break points, though the Romanian dug in to save them all and dominate from there on for an impressive victory.
