The Toyota Auris should, in theory, be one of the best hatchbacks to own in what is a very competitive sector of the market. It offers Toyota's legendary build quality coupled with a spacious and well appointed cabin and a five year warranty for complete piece of mind. There is a vast array of petrol and diesel engines which offer a good balance between power and economy and there's even a hybrid model than delivers excellent real world economy. The drawbacks of the Auris, however, mean than it fails to shine against rivals, partly due to its bland styling and the fact other rivals such as the Ford Focus drive better . A good car but it has little kerb appeal.
