Toyota Auris Touring Sports estate (2015 - )

There’s an awful lot to like about Toyota’s mid-sized estate car, and not just the fact that it has an enormous boot. The latest chassis revisions mean it rides, steers and handles as well as some of the best cars in its class. It’s also available with a surprisingly punchy 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol engine, as well as Toyota’s tried and trusted hybrid powertrain, so it’ll surely appeal to anyone who's worried by the latest negative reports about diesel-engined models. Choose the right model and it’s not expensive to buy or run, either, and it comes with plenty of standard equipment and loads of active safety kit. However, this is not a good car for pounding big miles on a daily basis, and the cabin has all the charm of a dank coal bunker.

Our expert review

See what our expert review team say about this car

They reckon that, if ever a nuclear war broke out, cockroaches would be one of the few things to survive; them, and a Toyota interior. With a hewn-from-granite appearance and not the slightest hint of a squeak or rattle, the Touring Sports' cabin looks and feels like it will last for forever and a day. That’s great if you’re using your Auris as a workhorse, and shovelling all sorts of junk in and out of it daily, but the cabin is not exactly plush. Lacking the visual flair and soft-touch feel to be found in many rivals, the materials used are, at best, utilitarian, although most of the touch points - such as the switchgear and steering wheel - do feel substantial. Likewise, the dashboard layout and the touchscreen for the infotainment system look rather passé, but at least everything is easy to use; and, except for the heated seat switches, which are hidden away in a little drawer, everything is laid out logically. Both the driver’s seat and the steering wheel have plenty of adjustment, so finding the correct driving position is a simple task. Visibility is fine up front, but the wide rear pillars and relatively narrow rear screen make seeing out of the back a bit tricky, which means the reversing camera (standard on almost all models) is an important ally.
