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: Estate version of 2012 Auris, offering greater versatility with same engines. Hybrid is nicer to drive than a Prius and makes better financial sense.
Bad: Hybrid version is no sports car, of course. Driving it like one can only lead to disappointment. At home on the flat. Can feel strained on steep hills.
Good: 2015 Toyota Avensis revealed at Geneva Motor Show 2015. Improved comfort and safety and a new range of engines.
Bad: Essentially a facelift of the previous Avensis with a more attractive front.
Good: 2015 Avensis and Avensis Touring Sport revealed at Geneva Motor Show with new range of engines.
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: 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.
Bad: Cabin somewhat lacking in quality. Not suited to sitting in busy traffic.
Good: Rugged and very reliable pick-up that's also good to drive. Robust interior.
Bad: Not quite a match for the Nissan Navara when it comes to refinement.
Good: Triumph of 4-seater packaging that still earned 5 NCAP stars. 99g/km so VED free. Better to drive than a Smart or a Fiat 500.
Bad: Quite wide for a city car. Not cheap. CVT auto over 100g/km.
Good: Big and tough. Good off road and good for towing. Five-speed auto only.
Bad: Expensive to buy and run. Old school 4x4 to drive with very light steering.
Good: Unstoppable off-road. Very highly kitted out as standard. Superbly engineered and robust.
Bad: More expensive new than a Range Rover and nowhere near as good. Doesn't feel very upmarket considering the price. Wallowy on the road. Generic looks inside and out.
Good: The first serious production hydrogen fuel cell car.
Bad: Very expensive at £63,104 (minus any government grants)
Good: Low CO2 emissions and zero car tax. Spacious cabin makes it a realistic family car. Plug-In version escaped London Congestion Charge.
Bad: Not so efficient for long distances at motorway speeds where some diesel cars still beat it. Feels strained when accelerating hard, especially uphill, so you don't.
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: Hiace replacement gets twin sliding side doors. Well equipped as standard including Bluetooth. Very refined and comfortable on the motorway. Good driving position.
Bad: Based on the Citroen Dispatch and has same fiddly stereo. Some below par interior plastics.
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.
