Introduced in 2006, the Toyota Auris took the mantle from the Toyota Corolla in delivering an efficient, practical and appealing mid-size option in the Japanese manufacturer’s comprehensive line-up. Throughout its 12 year lifespan, the nameplate spawned hatchback and estate models.
A trademark of the Toyota Auris, no matter its age, is its bubbly yet appropriately grown-up looks. Its design is overall fairly simple, but sharp design details appear where necessary to give this model an impact on the road.
Much like any recent Toyota, the Auris presents a feeling that everything is built to last. Robust, yet comfortable materials are deployed throughout the cabin while fit-and-finish is of the highest order — far exceeding expectations of a car at its affordable pricepoint.
A common choice in our range of used Toyota Auris models is an excellent 1.8-litre Self-Charging Hybrid powertrain. It combines petrol performance with battery efficiency for an affordable and fun ownership experience.
When last scrutinised by safety rating board Euro NCAP in 2013, the Toyota Auris took the highest rating of five stars for its impressive protection levels. It leads the way in adult and child occupant protection, while scoring highly for its assistance systems that are impressive for a car of its age.
