    Economical driving a Toyota Auris Hybrid? Yes, that's possible! With a demo of the Toyota dealer Konijnenbelt in Nijverdal I drove once Holterbergweg up and down, between Nijverdal and Holten, a distance of +/- 34 km. Consumption: 3.4 liter / 100km. in that range is also a gradient of 10%. With my driving I Yaris 1:20.


    Since October 2010 I have a Full Hybrid Auris Aspiration. Now about 13000km on the teller.Om alike but start with the consumption: Toyota claims 3.8 / 100L ... mmm I do not know how they got it done, but realistically this average consumption is not. In practice, I get more out of 4.7 / 100L, and then I ride conservatively and with a low consumption goal. Perhaps it has to do with the files I daily encounter, number of km on the highway and the fact that I have relatively small city driving or under 50 km / p / h stay (more practical. The outside noise at speeds above 90km and the wind speed> 5: very present.


    Since mid-August 2010, I have a full hybrid Auris Executive (after previously having four Priuses had - so I know what ride to edit low consumption). Qualitative: nothing but praise; terms of driving dynamics: great; in equipment: more than sufficient, relatively small boot, but that is understandable and known in advance. I am skeptical relation to consumption: 4 or 3,8l / 100km is still wishful thinking, but said Toyota: first go 5 / 10000km running-and then talk. Recently, the 17 "wheels / rims swapped for 15" wheels with energy saving tires but have not had a good opportunity to test it properly (short trips, lower temperatures or with full load. A conservative estimate indicates impression that consumption is not more favorable than my Prius2009 what might be expected and far remains near the manufacturer, but:. It's wait and Rear view camera is a nice gadget but not functional, rather a bit dangerous considering the spatial projection Dashboard data will in due course.. to be adapted, there is much to see, but often quite a chore to get that just to see what you're looking for all offered data is of course to find someone who now finds exactly like that, but many seem inappropriate.. The digital dash display as in the Prius would mi also do much better. But ... a nice car.
