2012 Toyota Auris Comfort 1.3 petrol
One slow, but very reliable turtle
Engine sound increased when idle (have to admit I made a few countryside visits).
It turns at 3000 revs when in 6th gear at 120 km/h, which is quite annoying on the motorway.
And also you will need quite soft compound tires, because the road noise that comes from beneath your feet is unbearable sometimes.
There is no transmission tunnel, and 3 adults can comfortably sit in the rear for hours, as you can also recline the rear seats a bit.
The brake pedal is a bit spongy, but lets the car brake quite comfortably for passengers. Well it's a downside in cases where you need an emergency brake, but for me a soft pedal is always better as long as all of the wheels have disc brakes.
The car would be great if it was just 100-150 kg lighter (like the new Golf 7).
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
