Mumsnetters try Toyota hybrid cars

We invited eight Mumsnetters to try out some Toyota hybrid cars including the Auris Hybrid, the Auris Touring Sports, the Prius and the Yaris Hybrid. Here's how they got on.


Terry and Emma - Toyota Auris Hybrid 

Terry and Emma stressed the importance of cost and loved that the Toyota Auris Hybrid showed when you were and weren't using petrol while driving.


Louise and Rachel - Toyota Auris Touring Sports

Louise, who already knew a little about hybrids and is looking to buy a new car, and Rachel, who knew nothing about hybrids, liked the driving experience of the Toyota Auris Touring Sports and commented on the spaciousness and different technical features found in the car.


Becky and Rebecca - Toyota Prius

Both Rebecca, a speed demon, and Becky, more concerned with fuel economics, liked the Toyota Prius and would consider one when purchasing a car.


Anthea and Christine - Toyota Yaris Hybrid

Neither Anthea or Christine knew much about hybrids but both felt the Toyota Yaris was a comfortable and easy car to drive.
