The Toyota Auris is a spacious family hatchback, with low emissions and cheaper running costs.
Toyota has just revealed the 2015 facelifted Auris prior to its appearance at the Geneva motor show, and there are some great deals to be had on current models.

Inside, the Auris offers ample head and leg room, seating rear passengers comfortably in the rear, thanks to its completely flat floor. The boot is also a good size, with an adjustable floor that offers a flat surface with the rear seats folded down.
The hybrid engine rewards a relaxed driving style, yet still offers enough power and near-silent motoring at low speeds. The Auris is also cheap to run, thanks to ultra-low CO2 emissions.
The Auris suffers from too much road noise, especially over rough surfaces, while wind is intrusive and the hybrid engine revs loudly when you’re in a hurry.
Interior trim quality isn't as good as that of the best small family cars. The driving position is user-friendly, but the touchscreen infotainment system isn’t that intuitive to use.
Should I add any options?
Icon models include alloy wheels and a DAB radio as standard trim.
Metallic paint options start at £495, with a pearl option at £650. Entertainment upgrades are also available, ranging from £400 to £1250.
Anything else I should know?
The price includes the £750 deposit required for Toyota finance options. If you’re looking to pay in cash, add £750 on to the discounted price.
