Toyota Auris Hatchback Review - Toyota Reviews South Africa
When compared with the Corolla Ė the car it replaced Ė the Auris feels rather bland. Itís not too bad in any particular area, but in totality itís 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. Itís the same story with wind-, engine- and road noise: itís not terrible, but you would expect better.
The Auris is spacious inside for a small family car and thereís decent legroom for passengers in the rear middle seat. Thereís also reasonable headroom, and the rear seats can be reclined. The boot is smaller than you'd expect, but is still a reasonable size and shape.
Pro's and Con's
Pro: The Toyota Auris is practical, comfortable and well built.
Con: The Toyota is let down by its uninspiring dynamics and design.
