What is it?
The Toyota Auris is the latest, revamped version of the brand’s British-built family hatch.
Revised styling, only petrol or hybrid engines, Strong safety spec.
The Toyota Auris is a competent, ultra-dependable entrant in the family hatch market, and the latest package of updates improves the car in many areas. But this is a competitive sector with some now very high-quality cars in it.
The Auris has to fight harder to be visible against its competitors and having failed to address a totally innocuous image, it doesn’t come up to traditional rivals such as the Ford Focus and Vauxhall Astra – at a time when they are facing severe competition from new challengers, especially from Korea.
The Toyota Auris is built in the UK.
