Toyota Auris HSD Full Hybrid Concept

Toyota is rolling their spin machine on the new Toyota Auris HSD Full Hybrid Concept. The study will have its moment in the spotlight at the Frankfurt Motor Show later this month, before hitting the salesroom floors next year. Even though the car can be driven either on petrol alone, or just electric, it can also run on a combination of the two. Unfortunately, the engine's power figures do leave quite a bit to be desired. Although it uses a reasonably sized engine, featuring a 1.8-liter displacement, it only manages to put out 97 horsepower. This leads to a 0-100 km/h time of "around 10 seconds," which means that the car probably hits 100 in 10 to 10.5 seconds under lab conditions, and maybe a second slower in the real world.

Toyota Auris Hybrid Review - Auto Express
Full review: rid.html It's priced competitively against 2.0-litre diesel rivals, and offers a different hybrid proposition to the Prius, mainly because it looks like a normal car. Just like its stablemate, the Auris is great around town. But the familiar hybrid foibles remain, with a harsh note under acceleration and average economy. So on the motorway, good though the newcomer is, we'd still recommend a diesel instead.

Toyota Auris hatchback review 2007 - 2012 -- CarBuyer
Toyota Auris hatchback 2014 review: Subscribe to the Carbuyer YouTube channel: Subscribe to Auto Express: The Toyota Auris is a seriously practical family car - and is aimed at a wide range of rivals, including some of the best on sale: big sellers like the Volkswagen Golf and Ford Focus. The Auris falls short of delivering the appeal of these thanks to a limited engine choice and range, and a slightly bland cabin However, it should prove dependable and reliable and it's very easy to drive. All versions have air conditioning and lots of useful storage pockets dotted around the entire cabin. Plus, crucially, there's space for taller adults on the back seats. The Auris gets loads of safety features, including nine airbags and traction control, which help it achieve a five-star Euro NCAP rating. However, Toyota's well-documented accelerator pedal issues in 2010 extended to the Auris. The problem has been rectified now though, and the car has largely proved electrically and mechanically reliable. The 2010 revisions to the range added much higher quality 'soft touch' cabin plastics throughout. Do you own this car? Let us know what you think about it with the Driver Power Survey
