Our Fleet Test Drive: Toyota Auris hybrid - 8th Report

Date: 17 January 2011   |   Author: Tony Rock

Auris on a slope

I?must say thanks to two readers this week.

First up is Paul Whitehead, who recommends I overcome a lack of go by temporarily engaging the Auris's 'Power' mode. "It's there for that little bit of extra power when needed, be it overtaking or going up a steep hill," he says. I've since tried it, and while the surge of power isn't instantaneous, it does help.

Like me, Alastair Rutt has been bugged by the continuous beeps that warn reverse is engaged. He says, though, that "this can be changed to a single beep free of charge by any Toyota main agent using the hand-held tester". So now you know.
