What Car? readers review new Toyota Auris

What Car? readers have given the new Toyota Auris the thumbs up at an exclusive preview held at Toyota’s factory at Burnaston, Derbyshire.

The Auris, which will be built at Burnaston from November 5th, won praise for its build quality, styling and interior quality…

Volkswagen Golf driver Bob Kingdom gave the looks his seal of approval, and said; “It looks much more aggressive than before, and at first showing certainly looks like a good car.”

Meanwhile, SEAT Ibiza owner, Richard Hodgson singled out the improved practicality, and the new look. He said; “The car has a much younger, funkier feel. If the driving can match the styling, I think they are on to a winner.”

The video appears below, and on the What Car? website.

  1. I’m really looking forward to this car, but, this review, although positive, raises a few concerns with positioning of kit etc, perhaps as we are a few weeks from main production things could be tweaked?

    1. Hi MW,
      We’re pleased to hear you are looking forward to the new Auris Hybrid. As you rightly point out feedback from the What Car? video makes some reference to the positioning of the iPod and USB connection. While there are no immediate plans to change this, we have fed this back to our Product development team for future consideration.
      Many thanks.

    1. Hi David,
      Thanks for getting in touch with us. We are currently working with our product and design colleagues who are looking at the possibility of offering a space saver as an option for the new Auris. Unfortunately, we cannot provide further details or any confirmation at this stage.
      Many thanks.
