The UK’s top motoring reviewers finally got the chance to drive the new Auris at a launch event in Portgual last week.
They got up close and personal with the British-built car ahead of it going on sale at the end of the year, priced from £13,995 – which includes the current offer of a £500 customer saving.
What Car? said:
‘Toyota says it hopes the new Auris will appeal to both the heart and the head, but the biggest appeal of this Hybrid version remains its various tax advantages.
‘For example, it sits in the lowest company car tax band for non-electric cars, which means (as a 40% rate taxpayer) you’ll pay around £20 a month less than if you’d gone for a similarly priced diesel VW Golf.’
And What Car? readers also gave the thumbs up to Auris in their readers’ clinic.
The review by Parkers praised the reliability record and running costs of Auris. You can read it here.
‘The Auris Hybrid is the most efficient car in its class’, says CarBuyer.co.uk.
HonestJohn.co.uk says: ‘…you might have dismissed the old Auris, [but] the new one is both good enough in itself and a decent enough looker to warrant your consideration. ‘Remembering that it’s also British built, carries a 5 year 100,000 mile warranty and, in the unlikely event that something goes wrong, Toyota is the best car company in the world at looking after its customers.’
