The Toyota Corolla is a fine family car, with hybrid engines that offer exceptionally low running bills. It isn't perfect, though. Its infotainment system is poor, the Skoda Octavia offers much better rear seat space and the Ford Focus is more fun to drive. On the plus side, it's very comfortable. It also benefits from Toyota's exceptional reliability record and you get loads of standard equipment.

This sporty trim level gets you more aggressive styling inside and out, including sports seats, red stitching on the steering wheel, 18in black alloys and a head-up display. It doesn't add a sportier driving experience, the ride is a little worse on the bigger wheels, and it's too pricey for us to recommend.

The 1.8-litre hybrid has a relatively modest 120bhp, but acceleration (0-62mph in 10.9sec) is adequate in most situations – even when joining motorways. The only time you’ll want for a bit more oomph is when you need to overtake dawdling motorists on country roads.
