The Toyota Auris is a seriously practical family car – and is aimed at a wide range of rivals, including some of the best on sale: big sellers like the Volkswagen Golf and Ford Focus. The Auris falls short of delivering the appeal of these thanks to a limited engine choice and range, and a slightly bland cabin However, it should prove dependable and reliable and it’s very easy to drive. All versions have air conditioning and lots of useful storage pockets dotted around the entire cabin. Plus, crucially, there’s space for taller adults on the back seats.
The Auris gets loads of safety features, including nine airbags and traction control, which help it achieve a five-star Euro NCAP rating. However, Toyota’s well-documented accelerator pedal issues in 2010 extended to the Auris. The problem has been rectified now though, and the car has largely proved electrically and mechanically reliable. The 2010 revisions to the range added much higher quality ‘soft touch’ cabin plastics throughout.
