What's the used Toyota Auris hatchback like?
When compared with the Corolla - the car it replaced - the Auris feels rather bland. It's not too bad in any particular area, but in totality, it's a long way behind class leaders.
It drives decently enough, with good grip in corners and limited body roll, but the steering is vague and the ride fails to smooth out the poorest road surfaces. It's the same story with wind-, engine- and road noise: it's not terrible, but you would expect better.
