Costs & verdict

Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is

The Toyota Corolla Commercial's 1.8-litre petrol hybrid engine means it should be cheap to run, and the official (WLTP) fuel economy figure is an impressive 61.4mpg.

We've managed to get very close to that figure in real-world driving (in both the Commercial and the Corolla Touring Sports), which is an impressive result for a van. For comparison, the mild-hybrid Ford Fiesta Van returns a 55.4mpg figure on the combined cycle.

Overview

The Corolla Commercial is a unique proposition: it’s cheap to run thanks to its hybrid engine, practical, and more comfortable to drive than many of its van-based rivals. However, those rivals and the Dacia Duster Commercial do out-perform it in key areas such as cargo volume, payload and towing.

  • Well-equipped
  • Comfortable to drive
  • Economical thanks to hybrid engine
  • Van-based rivals are more practical
  • The CVT gearbox spoils refinement
  • Unintuitive infotainment system
