Toyota Auris 1 (2007-2012) User Review – Comments
Since I knew Toyota quality, instead of buying a Golf or Astra, I bought a 2010 Auris and used it for 10 years. I could not get the pleasure I got from this car I sold last year from the car I bought after him and did not want to give a brand name. First, let’s talk about the size of the interior. Although it seems small due to its rounded lines when viewed from the outside, the inside is magnificently wide. It is the hatchback car whose rear legroom is the longest among its competitors. The front chest is deeply elongated. This leads to a large windshield. It has a windshield that offers a very super viewing angle. When the 1.6 engine starts, you don’t hear any sound from inside the car. The quality of the material used in it is very good. You never hear the plastic sound of what a trim sound is. A family of 4 can comfortably go on a journey. The performance of the 1.6 engine is very beautiful. It accelerates nicely to pressure and has a satisfactory acceleration performance. Since a soft sponge is used on the seats gives the person buried when sitting. Since the Auris is a car a little higher than the ground, you look down at other cars in congested traffic. Since the ceiling is high, the people sitting in it are not overwhelmed. It is very comfortable on the long road. The handling is good and it can enter even hard corners at high speeds. You know, the person who admires the handling of the Focus has never used Auris before. When I did a speed test on the highway, he was able to accelerate up to 190 – 200 km / h without any difficulty. Its brakes are very strong and can stop the car straight at short distance.
Should I buy a Toyota Auris 1 (2007-2012)?
First, let’s answer the question in your mind, whether the spare parts of the Toyota Auris are expensive and available. Since it is Toyota, every part of it is easily found. Since the engine, mechanics and driveline parts are the same as the Corolla, you have absolutely no difficulty. But the parts of the Auris are also expensive, since the parts of Japanese cars are a bit expensive. Although his second hand is not very fast, he is not considered very weak. Nevertheless, I think it is a car that deserves to be at the top among the C-segment hatchback cars.
