Pricewatch: Toyota Auris v. Ford Focus

NOT a lot has been released publicly about the new Auris yet, but Toyota has revealed prices and given the residual predictors a sneak preview.

We don’t know that the exact specification like-for-like will be against the competition but one thing stands out already: the Auris is going to be tremendously good value for money.

Primarily a retail car, residual values are high and front end price is low. Perhaps fleets might find it a more attractive proposition than the Corolla.
