Toyota is very good at making incredibly reliable
cars, so if you liked the new Auris but need a little more space, the Touring Sports or
estate version should suit you well. The only difference between the hatchback
and this version is from the rear wheels resulting in a very large boot, perfect for lugging
around all your hobby equipment – fishing rods or the kids football kit maybe? The back
seats fold down really easily to create a flat floor and there is virtually no load
lip, which makes placing heavier items in a doddle! Use these seats for passengers and even taller
people will find there is sufficient head room and leg room. being 5 foot 4 and a half
I don’t normally have to worry. all cars are good value offering climate control,
USB interface, 7 airbags and LED daytime running lights. As well as plenty of storage places
including cup holders, large glove box and door bin and a few other smaller places to
hide everyday clutter dotted around the cabin. The most impressive quality the Auris Touring
Sports has is its low emissions and therefore cheap company car tax. Go for the hybrid on
15″ wheels and it woos us with 87g/km of CO2 and it’s still sub 100g/km for the larger
17″ wheels that means road tax is free and those storing moths in their purses can continue
to do so thanks to combined fuel economy of more than 70 miles to the gallon. since the hybrid has fewer moving parts, maintenance
costs are expected to be half those of the petrol or diesel powered models – but it is
much, much more expensive to buy. We’d save the money and go for the economical
diesel, which actually feels just as quick on the move. What is your car like for running
costs? Do tell us at DriverPower.co.uk or by clicking on this button here. If you remember earlier I mentioned extra
sound proofing, this is an improvement over the hatchback and especially good on long
motorway journeys. This adds to the car’s overall comfort, but the slightly improved
handling compromises ride comfort and although the steering is light for town driving, it
seems a bit vague when you push on. That makes it not particularly fun to drive and some
way off the brilliant Ford Focus estate. I also think the interior is a tad dated when
compared to the likes of the VW Golf – or even the Hyundai i30 Tourer. having said that, it’s really reliable and
is backed up with an 5 year/100,000 miles warranty, The interior will stand the test
of time well, which combined with the low running costs and lower purchase price, makes
it rather good value. Now you’ve seen what we think of the Toyota,
why not take a look at what I thought of the brilliant Skoda Octavia here or the Kia Cee’d,
here. Finally, don’t forget to subscribe to our

    Pointing out LED DRL's as a feature is a bit of a stretch given it's mandated by European Union Directive 2008/89/EC. You cannot get a new car type approved without them.

    Fight over opinions? That makes no sense. I look at the dashboard and what I see is a car from the past, look at many pother cars, clean dashboard and clean design and the ergonomics are not great for everyone in a VW brand car either.

    driving it temporary, i like the seats, driving constant it will be quiet. materials used are hard plastic, feels cheap. One really big disappointment is the nav screen is very wrongly placed, you need to look down to the side to be able to read it, very dangerous!

    Also as Rebecca mentions, steering is very indirect, not connected to the road so to speak, also i am unable to see the nose so i have no good way of placing it in corners etc. Overall, not bad but could have been better with some simple changes.

    I have got a Toyota Auris touring sports 1.3 petrol VVTI 2014 make which has got starting fault. She sometimes needs the second attempt to start, or the third. It happened when she needed six attempts to start in the wet and cold morning!
    Took it to Lister's Toyota in Lincoln ( 5 years warranty still is on 35.000 miles on the clock)
    They cannot find the fault! Or don't want to find and fix it! They say every time we start your Auris she starts at first attempt! And the computer tells nothing! It's a lie, of course!
    A big disappointment that Toyota Auris touring sports 1.3 petrol VVTI is for me! Bought it on finance from John Peate Motors in Sleaford.
    Absolutely gutted!
