At A Glance

TOYOTA enjoyed success when its RunX to the top of the sales charts from the go. This was a vehicle that comfort, a decent level of some personality and was quite to drive, too.

Enter the launched as a replacement for the RunX, wasn’t around for very but certainly long enough to win the hearts of many motorists. immediately struggled to pick up the of its predecessor. Moving it off showroom was not nearly as easy as Toyota had and those who were looking to from the RunX were not of a vehicle that had moved up in range, but seemed to have some personality.

Toyota Africa has explained that, the Auris was launched, many buyers did not know that it was a for the RunX. So, to make the connection the company has upgraded the engines and and slapped the “X” onto the name to the Auris X. Sounds suggestive and exciting, doesn’t it?

The X upgrade includes a new front and fresh styling for the grille, is now wider and adds a bit of sportiness. is also a new front spoiler to revised headlamp clusters. The model here has the same package as its Auris XS sibling, but an aero kit that includes front and rear skirts, a and… customised carpets.

The comes with 16-inch shod with 205/55 as standard. Other features a rear spoiler with an high-mounted brake lamp, glass for the rear side and rear screen and front At 4 245 mm long, 1 760 mm wide and 1 515 mm high, the certainly is a fair bit bigger the old RunX. This results in an and spacious cabin.

Climbing inside, it is immediately that a lot of time has been on making the interior as comfortable as With both rake and adjustment on the steering column and of variation available on the driver’s it is easy to find a comfortable position.

There is a lot of space the driver and all the important controls are easy reach. The layout of the is simple and very easy to get to and steering wheel-mounted controls are an bonus. The amber lighting of the will not appeal to all tastes and testers commented that the fuel gauge was not very but the general consensus was that the are neat.

Standard comfort, convenience and features include an audio with a USB/aux-in jack, windows all round and electrically mirrors. The 1,6-litre powerplant in the has 6 kW and 3 N.m more than that in the Auris, which takes the power to 97 kW at 6 400 and torque to 160 N.m at 4 400 r/min. claims that while and torque are up, emissions have reduced and fuel consumption has thanks to Toyota’s Optimal technology, which has been to all engines across the range. fuel index comes to 8,3 km, which gives the Auris a of 663 km on a full 55-litre tank.

Sending drive to the front is a notably slick sixspeed transmission that is only let by a clutch that seems far too This engine and transmission helped the SportX achieve figures of 10,70 seconds for the km/h sprint and a 195 km/h top It’s not a ball of fire, and nitely not what one would of something badged as a “sport”

The average 100-to-zero km/h was a just-below-average 3,13 seconds, a braking system that is with ABS with EBD. consists of a combination of MacPherson with an anti-roll bar at the front and a beam axle with springs at the rear and this to be a well conceived set-up. All remarked on the comfortable ride even over roads by uneven surfacing. The handling most of us as the Auris SportX to be an agile car, even the tyres squealed with provocation. These two features – and handling – were by far the most things about the SportX’s

Passive safety features central locking, an antitheft whiplash injury lessening concept seats for driver and passenger, ISOFIX anchorages for seats and seven airbags.


The Auris SportX has a lot for it – quality levels seem standard specification is good, dynamics proved better expected and overall it is a very car to drive. However, the bland and lazy performance fall of what one would expect a model to offer. Also against the Auris SportX is the price tag of R243 800. It seems too much money for a that wants to replace a seller, but can’t match it on all
