Toyota decided it was finally time to retire the 'Corolla' name in 2007 by renaming the world's favourite hatch the Auris. Rumour has it despite selling more than 30 million cars Toyota wanted a new name for Britain to spearhead its fresh assault on the small hatch market.
The Toyota Auris was indeed all-new, but aside from the odd interior quirk, it remains a car you buy with your head rather than your heart.
Picking up where the Corolla left off the Auris remained a well built, comfortable, easy-to-drive car with a good level of equipment. Early on there was a wide choice of engines and even a sporty SR180 diesel for those in the market for a quick, but efficient, hot hatch. In 2010 Toyota gave the Auris a subtle facelift. Build quality was improved and the suspension was tweaked for a better drive. The engine range was also simplified to just two petrols and one diesel.
