The Toyota Auris does a great job, if all you want to do is carry people and stash stuff in the cabin, but if you want good boot space, one of the alternatives will probably suit you better
Passenger space isn’t class-leading but it’s among the largest in the segment. Those up front get plenty of head and legroom, and good front and side visibility gives the cabin a light, airy feeling. Even with tall passengers up front, there’s still plenty of room in the back for adults with only the largest rivals such as the Honda Civic offering better rear occupant accommodation.
There are no complaints to be had with storage areas in the Toyota Auris. There’s also nothing clever or impressive either, but rest assure there’s enough space for water bottles, phones, wallets and other small items.
Overall, the boot space in the Auris is nothing special, but it's impressive that there's as much room in the hybrid as in the more conventional models
Where it offers good passenger space, the Toyota Auris can only muster mediocre boot space. The 360-litre space is large enough for the weekly shop, but the family holiday might force you to pick which of your children you like the most.
Toyota Auris Hybrid buyers can relax in the knowledge that the batteries are stuffed under the rear seats so they won’t lose any boot space over their conventionally powered siblings.
