TOYOTA AURIS TR D-4D 1.4 TURBO DIESEL MULTI-MODE AUTOMATIC 5 DOOR finished in Ixion Blue Metallic with Sport Silver “Tatami” cloth upholstery. This is a beautiful example of the spacious, cheap to own and ultra-reliable Auris range. This car has the 1.4 8 valve D-4D Turbo Diesel engine with 90 bhp, coupled to a six speed Multi-Mode automatic gearbox. It can return an incredible 57.7 mpg on the combined cycle, is a group 11 insurance (on the newer 1-50 scale) and costs £115 per year to tax. Performance is respectable too, with a top speed of 109 mph, and a 0-60 time of 14.2 seconds. The Auris has a very competent chassis – offering well balanced handling, light steering and a comfortable ride quality too. With its torquey Turbo Diesel engine providing strong acceleration without resorting to high revs and easy to use Multi-Mode gearbox, this is a very relaxing and pleasant car to drive. The gearbox features a Sport mode for a more responsive drive or a Tiptronic style manual override where you can zap up and down the gears with the Formula 1 style steering wheel paddleshifters. There is plenty of space in the cabin, with room for four adults to travel in comfort (or five with the slightest squeeze in the back) and a large boot with split/folding rear seats, giving a huge cargo area when folded down. The rear seat backrests are also recline adjustable. There are loads of family friendly features fitted as well, such as – a front centre armrest with integral storage box, map pockets in the back of the front seats, driver and passengers pop-out cupholders, drivers sunglasses holder, large upper and lower gloveboxes, door bins in all four doors, storage tray under the “floating” centre console, illuminated vanity mirrors, front map reading lights and a height adjustable drivers seat. The Auris is a very safe vehicle too, it scored a top rated five star result in the Euro NCAP crash tests, and comes with loads of safety gear as standard. This includes driver and passenger airbags (with passengers de-activation switch), side airbags, curtain airbags, drivers knee airbag, ISOFIX child seat mountings on the outer rear seats and ABS brakes. This TR model is not lacking in goodies either, spec includes dual zone climate control air conditioning, electric windows all round, electric/heated mirrors with power fold, trip computer, power steering, 16 inch alloy wheels, rear parking sensors, Bluetooth hands free phone integration, remote central locking and its original remote control Toyota RDS stereo/CD player with auxiliary MP3 connector socket and USB port.

This Auris has a fantastic pedigree. It was supplied new by Platinum Toyota of Trowbridge to a lady from Warminster who owned it for just over two years. It was subsequently acquired by a gentleman from Melksham back in February 2014 and he has owned the vehicle ever since. It has a full service history with five Toyota main dealer stamps in the book, all from the supplying main dealer. This faultless service record obviously confirms the incredibly low mileage of just over 16,000, as well as proving that the vehicle has been maintained to the highest standard throughout its life. It is presented in superb condition inside and out, drives like new and looks very smart in its attractive shade of metallic light blue with contrasting dark grey interior. It is set off externally by the sporty alloys and front fog lamps, plus the chrome strip on the tailgate handle and Mercedes style door mirror integrated side indicators. The interior is enhanced by the nice to hold leather steering wheel and gearknob, classy aluminium effect centre console with matching touches on the door handles, instrument dial surrounds, plus the steering wheel and gearknob inserts. If you are looking for a practical family car with the rare combination of easy driving automatic transmission and Turbo Diesel economy then this Auris ticks all the right boxes. With its ideal two private owner, full main dealer service history provenance backing up the tiny mileage, plus the lovely condition and great spec – I think you will find it nigh-on impossible to find a better example anywhere! Considering it would have retailed new for over £18,000 and the fact it’s covered the average mileage of an 18 month old car – this is fantastic value now at only £6,995!
