The Toyota Auris is a compact hatchback exemplifying the reliability and efficiency of the Toyota brand.
A great all-rounder with excellent performance, it distinguishes itself from its competitors by way of sheer versatility.
The new Toyota Auris can be discovered at Jardine Motors Group dealerships in Cambridge, Durham, Essex, Suffolk and Sunderland.
Minimising the risk of accidents is an important aspect of the Auris, and the car's notable safety record is reflected in its five-star Euro NCAP rating.
Seven SRS airbags shield occupants in case of a crash and are cleverly positioned to cover areas such as the driver's knees
While an Anti-lock Braking System coupled with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution improves driver control when braking by preventing the wheels from locking.
With a width of only 1,760mm, the Auris is small enough to steer and park with ease, even in a busy urban environment. Its height, meanwhile, enables it to provide a deceptively large quantity of storage space, which is increased by a removable rear parcel shelf and foldable rear seats.
Front and rear bumpers are curvaceously proportioned to give an athletic style whilst lessening the impact of crashes, and the slanted headlights on either side of the iconic Toyota badge give the car a confident bearing. A leather steering wheel ensures that the interior is similarly well styled, and the close-to-hand dashboard makes controlling the car easy, whether regulating the air conditioning or observing the Optitron speedometer.
Navigating sharp corners is easy in the Toyota Auris due to speed sensitive Power Assisted Steering and front and rear suspension, which help to stabilise the car as you turn.
You can opt for Traction Control and Vehicle Stability Control to inject further smoothness into your drive.
Accelerating potential of 0-62mph in 10 seconds, with the 1.6-litre with manual transmission, puts the Auris at the top of its class. With fuel economy at 48.7mpg, this is a car that gets results quickly, efficiently, and with low running costs.
