Review

The Toyota Corolla is a fine family car, with hybrid versions that offer exceptionally low running costs. It's not perfect — the Corolla's infotainment system isn’t great, a Skoda Octavia offers much better rear seat space, and a Ford Focus is a better driver's car — but on the plus side it's very comfortable, benefits from Toyota's exceptional reliability record, and you get loads of standard equipment, too.

Trim: Excel

This range-topping trim is too pricey for us to recommend, even though it adds part-leather seats and even bigger (18in) alloys to everything that comes with cheaper Design trim.

Engine: 2.0 VVT-i Hybrid
