Toyota Auris (2007–2013)

Last updated 18 August 2017

Decent combination of ride and handling that might suit some people better than a harder sprung Golf or a Civic. A few inches taller than a Golf of Focus so easier to get in and out.
Dull, unadventurous styling.

The Auris is a decent enough looking car, a bit like a big Yaris, sitting on a long wheelbase and a few centimetres taller than the average C segment hatchback.

It's a bit more interesting inside, with a flying buttress arrangement housing the gearlever higher than most of us are used to, a commodious centre console and a flat rear floor making it a five seater which is genuinely comfortable for five.

Disappointingly, the ‘Optitron' digital dash is laid out with analogue circular instruments instead of the excellent central digital display of the Yaris that you don't have to re-focus from.
