    My car

    I have been driving this car now for a little way. The car is very practical, good size boot, comfortable seats. The auto gearbox can be a little unresponsive at times but the paddleshift makes driving the car fun! All in all a good car that will not go wrong!

    My car

    I took Toyota for a test "spin" last week. Car handles very well, 1.6 engine is responsive, quiet and does very good job for it's class even if you compare to the competition. The gears change is very smooth (again much better than some competitors) and i like "shift" indicator. The car is very comfortable to drive and roomy inside. The driving position is excellent. Maybe the handbrake is unusual and some plastics could be (feel) better quality but who cares? I was interested in 5* NCAP test result. I tested Golf, Astra, Mazda 3 and Focus. My new Auris arrives in few days so can not really comment on running costs.

    My car

    I have just replaced my old style Avensis with the Auris, which seems to have more space, a slightly awkward handbrake, and quite firm seats, giving a bit of a bumpy ride. Also, a thick, thick front door pillar gives a bit of a blind spot. But good adjustment of the seat and steering wheel gives a good driving position. There's plenty of room for five adults, with good space in the boot. All in all a good replacement if you want to downsize, but lose no interior space.
