    My car

    The wife's forth Toyota after two Yaris Verso's and a Urban Cruiser. We bought the demonstrator after the Urban Cruiser went in for a problem. It was just such a nice drive we didn't want to give it back.

    A big car which doesn't feel it. Being the demonstrator we have the 2.2D-4D with all the toys, but the parking sensors are a must, it is a big car.

    We get around 45 mpg around town and it will if driven gently give over 60 mpg on the motorway. from popping down the shops to a 350 mile round trip taking a full load to our daughters "digs" at University it handles everything with ease. You will be amazed at how much will fit in the back. The seating isn't quite a clever as the Yaris Verso, but folds out the way easily. Its just effortless the drive with all that torque it will pull happily from low revs in most gears.

    Having owned it from around 8 months old for 5 years now and done about 50,000 miles it has been back for three problems. The door hinge bolts were not plated and went rusty causing stains down the door pillars. One of the built in DVD screens used to turn on and off at random. We get excessive front tyre wear, which seems to be due to the heavy engine.

    This is easily the best car we have ever owned and I will be very sorry to see it go when we eventually change it.

    My car

    The seating system is excellent and reconfiguring the cabin is fast and simple. While the two rear seats are only suitable for small children the car is a very comfortable five seater with a large boot when these rear seats are folded. The cabin has proved hard wearing and durable but is low rent and most of the plastics feel hard and cheap. Equipment levels in the SR are very good and there is very little you'd want to add other than MP3 player integration and a USB or SD port. So far so decent, however the ride is quite harsh combined with a lot of body lean in corners, steering is light but lacks feel, it is probably as god as other vehicles in this class but feels very poor to drive compared to a regular family hatchback. The engine is underpowered and needs to be revved to make reasonable progress with frequent downshifts, this also means the fuel consumption is poor, I average 30-32mpg, which in a car with sluggish performance is not very good. We got a good price on a nearly new 08 a couple of years ago and whilst the children were very young and we needed to carry grandma as well it was a useful car, the seating system is excellent and better than most rivals whilst the drive is no worse than its rivals but others have better running costs. Overall a car you drive because you need it but with no driver appeal or character.

    My car

    Just bought a 30,000 mile 3 year old 1.8 vvti t3, and it is superb. I have had 2 scenics, the last one i did 66,000 miles in 3 years, and i thought it was a good car, until i drove this. It is superior in every way. Cabin noise? don't know what others are used to driving, but i grew up with my dads merc's and jags, and i can tell you, for what the car is, it's quiet as it needs to be. Engine lacking in power? what are you used to? once it comes on cam, it just keeps pulling and pulling, and sounds superb too.

    It does what it says on the tin, and is brilliant for someone who needs an occasional 7 seater.

    My car

    My wife and I are very happy with this car which we bought almost new 30k miles ago. We have 1.8 t2 version. The car is wonderfully practical - we take huge loads readily (two adult bikes easily transported inside the car when off to France -but still enjoy a comfortable and spacious drive. economy is fairly good - 37 is about right but it is easy to get higher with a little restraint.Vision from height is lovely, seats comfortable. Acceleration is good. The 'noise' issue mentioned elsewhere is simply wrong. Niggles include parking - vision when parking is not good - and storing the boot cover is fiddly.
