The new Toyota Auris Hybrid Touring Sports, which is not available in the US unfortunately, is currently the only hybrid estate Toyota you can buy.
However, AutoGuide managed to get their hands on one of them for a quick test just for the fun of it.

If you decided to get the hybrid one, it comes with a 1.8-liter gasoline four-cylinder engine mated to an e-CVT, containing two electric motors powered by a large battery stored beneath the rear seats, totaling 136 hp. The powertrain is rated at 3.6-3.9 l/100 km (65-60 mpg) in the city and on the highway.

Although the hybrid system is superior to the one found on the Toyota Yaris Hybrid, the car cannot be classified as sporty. However, it will stay decently planted on sharp corners or evasive maneuvers. Being meant to haul people and their luggage in comfort for a small price, the Hybrid Touring Sports drags itself from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in 11.2 seconds.
