Review

In hybrid form, the Toyota Corolla Touring Sports is a unique and rather convincing proposition in the estate car category, offering exceptionally low running costs, great residual values and plenty of standard equipment. Okay, its boot isn’t quite as large as those found in conventional rivals, but it’s not far off. In short, for buyers looking for an alternative to diesel, the Touring Sports is well worth a look.

get the best price

Design gets everything Icon Tech does, plus larger 17in wheels, automatic folding door mirrors, automatic wipers, LED front fog lights and privacy glass on the rear windows. 

It feels noticeably slower than the 123bhp 1.0-litre Ford Focus (Ecoboost 125), but its acceleration is still adequate in most situations – even when joining motorways. The only time you’ll really wish you had a bit more oomph is when you need to overtake slower traffic on country roads.
