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, rear passenger space is decidedly below par, but as long as that flaw isn’t a dealbreaker for you, it's a fantastic buy.
The trimSee full equipment
Entry-level Icon trim gets you dusk-sensing LED headlights, power-folding door mirrors, traffic-sign recognition, adaptive cruise control, a 10.5in touchscreen, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, keyless start, a rear-view camera, dual-zone climate control and 16in alloy wheels. It's worth upgrading to Icon Tech if you can, though.
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.
