The Toyota Auris Hybrid is a durable and fuel-efficient family car, and one of the only compact hatchbacks available with a hybrid powertrain.
Unlike many other cars in its class, the Auris Hybrid manages to be a substantial vehicle without sacrificing a stylish design. The car’s new and wider stance suggests robust confidence, while its clean and angular exterior lines are distinctive and contemporary.
All Hybrid trims come equipped with alloy wheels and LED daytime running lights, while higher-spec Design and Excel models are available with rear privacy glass and a panoramic sun roof to let in extra light.
Climb aboard the Auris Hybrid and you’ll be immediately struck by the first-rate ergonomic design and ample space that the car provides. The driver’s seat and steering column are both fully adjustable, for maximum ease and convenience while you’re behind the wheel. There is plenty of head and legroom in the front and rear, to ensure your journeys are comfortable whatever the distance. And with the 360-litre boot, which extends to a vast 1,200 litres when the rear seats are reclined, you’ll have all the room you’ll ever need. Be it for the weekly shop, or more exciting and far-flung adventures.
Entry-level Active gets automatic air-conditioning and push-button start, while mid-range Business Edition comes with heated seats and power lumbar support. Flagship Excel is the most luxurious, and is offered with a choice of a Newport grey/white checked cloth upholstery or sporty leather seats.
The Auris Hybrid is brilliantly economical, peacefully quiet, and a smooth drive on the road. The 1.8-litre etrol Hybrid engine comes with an automatic gear box, returns up to 80.7mpg at the pumps, and emits a low of 79g/kg of CO2 emissions. You’ll never have to worry about plugging the electric motor in either, as it uses the excess energy recovered from coasting or braking to stay fully charged at all times.
Safety and technology
In keeping with Toyota’s exemplary reputation for reliability, the Auris Hybrid is fitted with seven airbags, ISOFIX front and rear seats and electronic stability control. Toyota Safety Sense is included from Icon, and features a range of active safety technologies such as Pre-Collision System and Lane Departure Alert.
All Auris Hybrid models (excluding Active) come with the Toyota Touch 2 infotainment system, which is designed to keep you connectedwhile on the road. Displayed from a seven-inch colour touchscreen, the Touch 2 offers 3-D navigation, trip information and Bluetooth function.
