What do you consider to be the most reliable and economic automatic family car?

The Toyota Corolla is a good choice. Toyota always performs very well in reliability surveys and we've had very few issues reported with the Corolla. It's a hybrid, so it'll be cheap to run too.

Far better to drive than the Auris. Hybrid models are very efficient. Interior feels upmarket. Plenty of equipment as standard.
