Live from the launch: Toyota's confusing stop and go system

The Auris Hybrid's stopping and going system had us a little confused earlier. Not the clever fuel-saving technology that cuts the engine out when you are at the lights and restarts it just in time no matter how much you try and catch it out, but the old-fashioned stopping and going bits.

Plenty of modern cars have electric handbrakes, so when we saw the button emblazoned with a big 'P' on the central console, we assumed that's what it was and pressed it to try and pull away. Nothing really happened and the handbrake light was still on.
