The Toyota Auris Hybrid will emit just 84g/km of CO2 from next month.

The hatchback has undergone aerodynamic and tuning enhancements to reduce its CO2 rating by 3g/km, making it the cleanest car in its class.

Toyota has made tweaks to the car's engine control unit, and enhanced the aerodynamics with a new fin on the rear window. The changes apply only to the entry-level Icon trim the Excel version's CO2 figure remains unchanged at 91g/km.

The enhancements will also be applied to the Auris Touring Sports estate when it goes on sale later this summer. It will have CO2 emissions of just 85g/km and will cost from 21,095.

Decent to drive, generously equipped and the hybrid version makes a lot of sense as a company car. It's just a shame the Toyota C-HR isn’t cheaper to buy and bigger in the back.
