All things considered, the Toyota Corolla is a brilliant family car. It's comfortable, well made, well equipped and remarkably frugal in real-world driving. True, the 1.8 Hybrid version is no ball of fire and rear passenger space is decidedly below par, but as long as those flaws aren't dealbreakers for you, it's a fantastic buy.

This range-topping trim is too pricey for us to recommend, even though it adds part-leather seats and bigger (18in) alloys to everything that comes with cheaper Design trim.
The engineSee full engine specs
The entry-level 1.8-litre engine has a modest 120bhp, which translates to a leisurely 0-60mph time of around 11.0sec. That's almost a second slower than the Ford Focus 1.0 Ecoboost Hybrid 125, but it’s still more than sufficient for everyday driving and getting up to motorway speeds. The only time you’ll really wish for a bit more oomph is when you need to overtake a dawdling motorist on a country road.
