2013 Toyota Auris Sports review

The Toyota Touring Sports is a simpler than its badging suggests. Not and not a particularly touring-oriented car either, is the estate version of the popular hatchback.

The wheelbase and forward of the car are unchanged, but the body has been by 29cm to increase boot to 530 litres with the rear up, or 1658 litres with folded flat. That’s space than you get in rivals as the Ford Focus Estate and Kia Sportswagon, although the latest Octavia Estate is even

The range includes 1.33- and petrol engines, plus a 1.4 There’s also a 1.8-litre hybrid that emits 85g/km of CO2, with average economy of 76.3mpg.

the 2013 Toyota Auris Sports like inside?

The boot is the big news. The floor is lower than in the Auris so you don’t have to lift items as high to get them the car. Loading is further by the absence of a lip at the entrance to the boot.

pull a lever in the boot and the seatbacks drop forward no inconvenient slope or step. plus the standard height-adjustable floor and cubbies hidden makes the Auris Touring a seriously practical estate.

because most of the extra length has gone into the boot bigger, an adults behind a tall driver is likely to find kneeroom tight. At least there’s of headroom and the rear seats are

The dashboard hasn’t been which means it’s by drab materials and some switchgear. The colour touch-screen is a point, but it’s a bit fiddly to use with the systems available in rivals.

Still, the driver be comfortable, particularly in the supportive seats (standard in Sport and models), which offer a range of adjustment in every

Even entry-level Active (available with the 1.33 and 1.4 diesel engines only) get front electric windows, a USB and a multi-function steering wheel.

trim brings the colour alloys, front foglights, a DAB Bluetooth, a reversing camera and electric windows.

Sport diesel and 1.6 petrol engines adds bigger alloys, styling tweaks and privacy although it’s a shame you to go all the way to range-topping Excel to get climate Excel models all come keyless entry, cruise auto lights and wipers and part-leather seats.

All Auris Touring Sports get seven airbags and a full of electronic driver aids.

the 2013 Toyota Auris Sports like to drive?

The model is expected to be the biggest in the UK, because its low CO2 emissions make it to run as a company car.

As in other hybrids, a CVT automatic gearbox as standard. What’s more, the car can run on power alone for short and is refined around town.

For all its flaws, though, the hybrid is more likeable than the 1.4 This feels flat you’re closing in on 2000rpm, and then it’s slow to to accelerator inputs.

To make worse, it transmits lots of and vibration into the cabin, and with a notchy manual

The Auris’s steering is equally being light and inconsistently while the heavy battery in the hybrid amplifies the body’s to sway about through Its brakes are tricky to use smoothly, also makes the Auris enjoyable to drive with any

The UK’s constantly varying surfaces make life uncomfortable, too. The Auris well enough at low speeds it still fidgets over Tarmac but bumps and potholes through the cabin more as the speed builds.

Should I buy one?

If it weren’t for the driving experience, the Auris Sports would be a compelling family wagon. It really is one of the practical and user-friendly estate on the market.

The trouble is, the 1.4 diesel is near as flexible or refined as the diesels rivals, while the is let down by its sluggish performance and list price. The cheapest model starts at £21,095 than £1000 dearer a Skoda Octavia Estate 1.6 TDI SE, is bigger and better in almost way. Even if you add the automatic DSG to the Skoda, it costs a negligible more than the Toyota.

The does counter this by being significantly cheaper for car drivers, but we’d still pay the for the Skoda’s stronger power classier cabin and vastly driving dynamics.
