Toyota Reviews

New Cars
Good: Sharper looking than original Auris. Good quality feel to the interior. Available with HSD hybrid system. Well built.
Bad: Loses height and ease of entry advantage of previous Auris. Automatic is CVT only not torque converter.
Good: Spacious interior and fairly large boot with low loading lip. Feels well put together. Good ride quality. Hybrid version offers low CO2
Bad: Bland driving experience. Noisy and frustrating CVT automatic. Can feel cramped in rear. Odd-shaped boot
Good: Well-equipped and easy to drive. Comfortable long distance cruiser. Lots of interior space.
Bad: Bland styling inside and out. Not particularly fun to drive. Apart from 2.0-litre diesel the engines need to be worked hard to gain meaningful performance.
Good: 2015 Avensis and Avensis Touring Sport revealed at Geneva Motor Show with new range of EU6 engines including 1.6 and 2.0 litre BMW diesels.
Bad: Essentially a facelift of the previous Avensis with a more attractive front.
Good: Improvements in quality and refinement over predecessor. Lots of options for customising. Easy and enjoyable to drive. Impressive on the motorway. Five year warranty.
Bad: Doesn't get the more powerful 82PS PureTech engine from the Peugeot 108 and Citroen C1. No spare wheel. Just a tyre repair kit.
Good: Radical 'crossover' SUV to compete with Honda HR-V and Nissan Juke. Offered with hybrid drivetrain.
Bad: Expected late 2016 or early 2017.
Good: Hugely enjoyable and involving to drive. Great amounts of grip and superb handling. Free-revving 2.0-litre non-turbo engine produces 200PS. Priced from just £24,995. Low rev torque improves for 2017 MY.
Bad: Cabin lacking in quality. Not suited to sitting in busy traffic. Poor toque up to 2016.
Good: Large and useable load area. Great off-road. Wide choice of body styles. 3.5 tonne towing capacity.
Bad: Not as good on the road as some of its pick-up rivals. Average fuel economy. Top spec models are expensive.
Good: Big and tough. Good off road and good for towing. Excellent reliability record.
Bad: Expensive to buy and run. Old-fashioned to drive on the road. High boot floor.
Good: The first serious production hydrogen fuel cell car. Very quiet, pleasant and relaxed to drive.
Bad: Very expensive to buy at £66,000 (before any government grants).
Good: Low emissions of 70g/km. Relaxed, quiet and comfortable. Spacious cabin. Lots of safety kit as standard.
Bad: Expensive to buy new. Official fuel economy figures are unrealistic in real world driving.
Good: Hybrid only 7 seater. Low emissions of 96g/km for Icon trim. Easy to drive. Spacious interior and seven seats as standard.
Bad: Expensive compared to other MPVs. CVT gearbox not pleasant to accelerate hard, so you don't. A bigger battery would have taken it further.
Good: New range of diesel engines will return up to 55mpg. Now will carry 1400kg payloads. 2.5 tonne towing capacity.
Bad: Not out until mid-2016.
Good: Sharper styled RAV4. Practical with a good boot and plenty of rear leg room.
Bad: Not as satisfying to drive as some rivals. Interior materials aren't as good as Mazda CX-5.
Good: Genuinely seats seven adults with some luggage space behind the rearmost seats. BMW 1.6 D-4D engine from 2014.
Bad: Drab design and dull to drive.
Good: Enjoyable to drive. Economical engines including 1.33 VVT-i. Well equipped as standard. Plenty of room for rear passengers. HSD hybrid from 2012.
Bad: Dull and generic 2011 styling but improved from summer 2014 facelift.
