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

Take everything you get on entry-level Icon trim, add parking sensors (front and rear), a self-parking system and sat-nav, part-digital instruments and steering assist (that works with the adaptive cruise control) and, hey presto, you have Icon Tech trim. It’s our pick of the range.

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.
