That’s the expectation. Not expecting the handling to be too shocking as I’ve tried the 2.2 diesel we got here and it’s fairly alright, with not a huge difference in drivetrain weight.
As a quick, quiet, comfortable, not horrendously expensive to run and slightly strange mile muncher though I’m expecting it to be excellent. Still probably gonna try and get it onto track at some point though.
So there it is… the infamous Toyota that messed my brain up. And it was an Auris(ish).
Still, it’s a mental piece of kit for an Auris! The Blade is like the Lexus CT200 that never happened (but should’ve). I suspect many will tilt their heads to read the rear lettering, when they notice the front badge doesn’t match an Auris’s…
Also, how is the engine only half-dirty? Did the seller take pics as he was cleaning the bay?
Not a clue, was wondering that myself but I assume it’s just been how it’s parked, if it’s been left in the auction house with the bonnet open or something.
Haha I can see where you’re coming from to be fair.
Yeees someone calling it a Q-car same as we do, nobody really says that much anymore. My Dad drives the 1.6 Auris so, should be a strange comparison.
They’ve been brilliant, even though I suspect I was a bit of a nightmare customer early on as I hadn’t done it before and didn’t have much luck at the end of the market I was bidding at, as a lot of these cars are super low mileage.
Well, whoever this English person getting the car is, I’m sure he’ll need to bust out the vacuum to get rid of all those leaves… Those seats look rough, though. Either way I’m sure this mysterious UK person has many plans.
