Toyota Auris Touring Sports hybrid

The hybrid is not the only car which benefits from low running costs, however – the petrol version is impressive too. This 1.2-litre unit returns a claimed 52.3mpg.

As you would expect, Toyota Auris Touring Sports CO2 emissions are low. Unsurprisingly the cleanest model is the hybrid, which produces 99g/km CO2.

But low CO2 emissions are not just limited to the hybrid – the petrol emissions are as low as 120g/km.

  • Strong reputation for reliability
  • Five-year warranty on offer too
  • Hybrid version is tried and tested tech

If a manufacturer’s reputation is anything to go by, Toyota Auris Touring Sports reliability should be excellent. Toyota is known for being quick off the mark when it comes to recalling any potential faulty vehicles, so buyers should have some piece of mind that they will be in safe hands if anything was to go wrong.

A five-year warranty is another plus point, while the car feels well built with a good quality of materials used.

It is also worth noting that the hybrid has no clutch, no starter motor, no alternator belt and no timing belt meaning not as many expensive parts that may need replacing further down the line. The regenerative braking also means less wear and tear on the brakes over time.
