Road test: Toyota Auris Hybrid Sports Touring (2013)

Toyota Auris blesses the second generation with the Sports Touring, a wagon version with a maximum load volume of 1,658 liters. And with a fuel consumption of only 3.8 liters per 100 kilometers in the case of the Hybrid. A test report.

Touring Sports? That creates expectations

With a length of 4.46 meters, the Sports Touring exactly 20 centimeters longer than the five-door Auris, a bonus that pushes the luggage compartment from 360 to 530 liters. With rear seats folded away (via a handy lever in the trunk) you even 1,658 liters at your disposal. The flat floor and the large tailgate facilitate stowing stuff.

The Hybrid gets a slightly different dashboard than not helped by electrostatic force Sports Touring variants.The characteristic blue shift lever replaces the traditional gear and a specific focus on hybrid instruments use replaces the traditional clock shop. The interior looks ungainly, with Fisher Price-like controls, an uninspired design and a chunky material. But the ergonomics, comfort and driving position are correct or as a coach.

That is as economical as Toyota Hybrid claims?

The Japanese promise a standard consumption of 3.8 liters per 100 kilometers, but do in practice an average of 5.5 liters diesel thirst. Not only long, though it appears the 1.4 D-4D in practice another half a liter more economical. But Horticultural CO2 emissions of just 85 g / km scored Touring Sports Hybrid course excellent on tax issues.

The Hybrid relies on the drive assembly of the Prius, which is an atmospheric 1.8-liter petrol engine combines an electric motor powered by nickel-metal hydride. Although the combined power is 136 hp, the performance is not to write home about. The sprint from 0 to 100 km / h requires about 11 seconds and the top speed is only 180 km / h. Moreover, the acceleration accompanied by the wailing of the ECVT-speed continuously variable transmission.

And what does that go?

Once the hybrid powertrain on speed, she convinces with its quiet operation. And that compliments the already excellent sound insulation. Because the chassis knows with infrastructural regurgitation, hinders overall comfort therefore at a high level.

 Touring the portion of the name is so neat incorrect.

But to a form of dynamics remains fruitless search. Compared with the previous-generation Toyota Auris Hybrid the steering and suspension just put a little sharper, but it remains a distant affair. Find the limits and you overbuilt immediately under steer, thereby driving dynamics regurgitation immediately thwarted.

 A choice of the mind, not the heart.
