Auris Hybrid: vital stats
The Auris Hybrid has a 1.8 petrol engine and an electric motor that combine to give a power output of 134bhp. Average fuel consumption is 74.3mpg and CO2 emissions are 89g/km when the car is fitted with 15-inch wheels.

When it's fitted with the optional 17-inch wheels, the Auris Hybrid is capable of 70.6mpg while emitting 93g/km of CO2.

At 18,950, the Auris Hybrid is not a cheap way into to hybrid motoring. It is only 555 less than the company's entry-level Prius and more than 2365 more than the cheapest Honda Insight.

Toyota says that Auris Hybrid is close in price to similarly specced rival cars fitted with two-litre diesel engines and says that Auris Hybrid customers and Prius Hybrid customers come from two distinctive groups.

'Prius customers want to make a statement,' said a Toyota spokesman. 'They tend to be style-led early adopters. Auris Hybrid customers will be interested in the mpg and they may also simply prefer a smaller car.'

Toyota C-HR

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.
