The Toyota Auris is a family hatchback which offers low running costs and practicality. Reliability levels are high too to underline its sound offering.
The Auris has an impressive range of engines, particularly a 1.2 litre turbo petrol unit which has economy of 59 mpg with emissions of 112g/km. There's also a 1.4 litre diesel engine which returns 81 mpg and has emissions of 92g/km while a BMW-sourced 1.6 litre diesel engine - which offers the best levels of performance - will return 67 mpg and has emissions of 108g/km. However, the most frugal model in the line-up is the 1.8 litre petrol electric hybrid Auris which returns 81 mpg while having emissions of 79g/km.
When the Toyota Auris was relaunched it was given a lower roof and a super sleek new design which helped it to stand out from its competitors. There’s no doubt that the Auris is a clever car with a lot of good design ideas and which has low running costs.
On the road, the Auris is an extremely comfortable drive and there's more room on board, despite the lower roof, to accommodate adults than was the case in the previous model. The suspension is adequate and bumpy roads are easily dealt with and even the hybrid is surprisingly nippy and delivers an impressive driving experience. The boot size compares well with its nearest rivals and the rear seats fold down flat to create more space.
Anyone looking for a reliable family hatchback could do no worse than opting for the Auris which will bring years of trouble-free motoring, underlined by a five-year warranty for the whole range. The battery pack in the hybrid model has an eight-year warranty. There's a lot of equipment on-board including electric windows, air con and a USB port while other models come with DAB radio and alloy wheels. Standard safety equipment includes electronic traction and stability control, brake force distribution and seven airbags.
Essentially, the Toyota Auris is an excellent choice for a family hatchback with low running costs and a reputation for reliability.
