The latest survey by comparison website Which? has revealed the least and most reliable cars in the competitive medium sized range.

While models such the Ford Focus, Volkswagen Golf and Vauxhall Astra are the most popular, none of them made it to the Top Five for car reliability.

The medium sized vehicle that has been crowned as most trustworthy is the British made Toyota Auris Hybrid with a score of 96.4%. It was further rated highly for not only being smooth and quiet, but also for providing good fuel economy at 64.2mpg.

In addition, the Auris Hybrid scored over 3% more than its conventionally fuelled Auris counterpart.

Coming in a close second with a reliability rating of 96.1%, the current Renault Mégane has also garnered praise for being one of the cheapest cars in terms of repair costs within the medium sector.

Rounding out the Top Five most reliable cars, the Mazda 3 ranked third at 95.6%, followed by the Seat Leon (95.3%) and the Mercedes B-class (94.4%).

In contrast, the lowest reliability rating indicating a car to steer clear of is the petrol fuelled Vauxhall Astra at 79.0%, with its diesel alternative coming in second worst at 80.6%.

The Bottom Five relatively troublesome vehicle models were completed by the Alfa Romeo Giulietta (82.9%), the Honda Civic (83.1%) and the Hyundai i30 (86.7%).
