Toyota Auris


CARS are here to stay and one of the Toyota, has just won the Green Car Of The title with its Auris hybrid, which was for its outstanding fuel economy and its low

That is very commendable, but how the car is also important and I was keen to out when I tested this Toyota Auris model

The latest Auris looks smart with smooth styling. There is a choice of two engines, one diesel, and a petrol-electric The hybrid offers 98 hp from its 1.8 petrol engine with the unit delivering 80hp.

I performance not significantly different most conventional cars in the #8211; the 0-60 mph time is at 10.9 seconds, with a top of 112 mph. The significant different when you consider the fuel – 74.3mpg combined. And another is that with a meagre emission figure, you can forget tax and congestion charges.

Out on the road, at lower speeds the near-silent progress reminds you are in something a little different, when pushed hard, the can be a little growly. The CVT transmission is with the changes. Handling is and predictable, ride comfort not in class but quite acceptable.

It is not an exciting car to be in, but then its target wouldn#8217;t expect that

Auris comes with side and curtain airbags, and control is also standard. levels are Active, Icon, and Excel. Even the Active model comes with electric front windows, locking and a CD player.

Icon trim adds which include alloy and a DAB radio, while Excel add automatic light and wipers and a facia.

When it comes to all the essential controls are within reach and the central touch-screen system is simple to operate. and steering wheel are adjustable, so you can get a driving position with forward vision.

The cabin provides ample and legroom for five occupants and a comfort touch is reclining seat backrests. The boot – features an adjustable floor – is roomy (360 litres) and seats boost this to capacity.

Summing up, though Hybrid at £19,995 in test-model form is a bit more expensive some conventional rivals, it provides great value for when you factor in the substantially operating costs, particularly a longer time span.

FOR: Classy styling, economy, Toyota reliability.
