What would interest you in buying a used Toyota Auris? Decent drive dynamics? A sharp sense of style? A wide choice of efficient engines? All of that is on offer - in theory at leasyt - from this post-2015-era Auris, an improved version of the MK2 model. This was a more confident Focus-class family hatch that's good value, was British-built and amongst family hatches made in this period, is uniquely available in this segment with hybrid power. If you're shopping in this sector, you might not be considering it - but perhaps you should be.
If you're the kind of person who brings uncompromising reason to the purchase decision when it comes to getting yourself a new family hatchback, then you'll bond with this Auris right away, particularly in this revised MK2 form. Optimal Drive technology, hybrid power, low servicing costs, decent residuals: it'll all be music to your ears.
What changed with this improved second generation Auris design though, was that the car became sharper looking, more accomplished to drive and more value-orientated. Plus the introduction of 1.2-litre petrol Turbo power and the 1.6-litre D-4D diesel engine meat that at last, this car could be a fully competitive prospect for those not prioritising hybrid power - or those who can't quite stretch to it. The petrol/electric option's worth trying though and it remains unique amongst family hatchbacks from this era. There are still, it's true, more dynamic, more versatile and more up-market-feeling choices in this class from this period, but not many of them stack up quite as well as an overall ownership proposition.
What we've got here then, is a family hatchback with a Toyota badge that's class-competitive in almost every way. There are more exciting options in this class from this era. But you may struggle to find more sensibly-orientated ones.
