The Toyota Auris is a mid-sized hatchback, up against Focus, Golf, Astra et al. Problem is, it’s about as interesting as a piece of graph paper, and about as much fun to drive. Choose from five-door hatchback or the illogically named estate version, the Toyota Auris Touring Sports. Petrol, diesel and petrol-electric hybrid versions of both are available.

60sec road test
Let’s start with some positives. The Auris is well-made, practical, economical and well-equipped. Fine for drivers who viewing buying a car in the same way as they would a fridge or a washing machine, but there’s not much here for everybody else. A pointy exterior hides an interior that’s solidly put together but as bland as car cabins get, even if it does come with plenty of kit as standard. It’s forgettable to drive too. Competent but uninspiring sums it up.
