It's the most uninspiring car I have ever driven. Underpowered and the fuel economy is awful. If you were to do a total carbon footprint of a hybrid Auris vs a Avensis diesel I am sure I know which one would come out on top - I get 35mpg from the Auris vs 50mpg from my Avensis. When you put your foot down in the Auris all you get is a load of rev and no go. My driving style is going to have to dramatically change. The good points. There are some lovely handles to drop the seats which are a nice innovative touch. Heated seats are nice although not as comfortable as the an Avensis and after a long drive you know you have been sat in a small car. Reversing camera and parking sensors are a nice touch too. The bad points. An estate should have a flat floor boot, but not here. There is a 4-inch well in the boot, meaning when you put the seats down, it isn't a flat floor. The touchscreen centre console isn't too responsive and should have kept the positive option buttons in my opinion. Towing capacity is negligible. Space saver spare wheel - disappointment. In summary a really uninspiring car which should be kept for inner city or town driving.

Bought this car based upon test drive of previous Icon Plus model which is now called the Design version. Has 17" wheels and fairly good trim and style. I was mis-sold this version as they took away the the sat-nav and made it an option (why) but got the dealership to fit it for free after a lot of argy-bargy, but underlying this was the very poor performance (only getting 47MPG) when the official figure is 85+. Knowing that I really should expect 60mpg! Eventually the car was taken back by the dealership after a fault code occurred on the ECU and they said all was well again. Well guess what, it wasn't! I have still got lousy mpg and the sat-nav has no manual (because it's new software) and can't turn the voice instructions down so now turned it off completely (chocolate teapot). Tried to reject the vehicle only to be laughed at by the sales manager and overall this new car is a very bad experience. They are now telling me to let the MPG settle down for a bit until the engine management gets things right and could take up to a year... Really? ..... And maybe it could be my driving technique that is to blame!! Already own a Prius and I've got no issues with that and well versed with other hybrid solutions. Wish I could walk away from this but shackled to Toyota's finance company and they have a conflict of interest in helping me, don't they?

We rented this car in Italy. The only issue we had with it was the incredibly small trunk. We could only fit one suitcase in it.

Really love this car! Toyota has built such an awesome package, which is affordable. I love how economical it is, I've lasted a tank for the most of 1 month and a half! With the added bonus of FREE ROAD TAX and Toyota 5-year Warranty. Recommend this vehicle if you're trying to save money whilst driving.

Comfortable, roomy, smooth, easy to drive, economical, reliable. Oh dear, I must be getting old when these things are most important!Seriously though, I like it a lot. I've almost gotten used to the high revs going up mild hills, but it is probably the biggest bugbear, plus a bit of road noise (possibly the tyres). Economy is about what I expected: ~53mpg over 21k miles mixed long runs and town.

Purchased this 3 months ago to replace my four-year-old 160,000 mile Prius. Huge boot and as good as Prius in every way. Sat nav, leather and panoramic roof my life more bearable. Just had the 10,000 mile service with no faults as usual. Yes the sat nav screen is too low and rear leg room is poor, but overall a great car to spent long days in. Most of all my P11D looks great with low income tax.
