The interior layout, fit and finish

Driving position and dashboard

The Toyota Corolla's driving seat has decent support and a pretty generous range of movements – including height and powered lumbar adjustment on all trims. You shouldn't have any problem getting comfy.

There are annoyances, though. Most family cars have a wheel that allows you to finely adjust the angle of the backrest, but the Corolla has a lever that offers a limited number of angles. Also, while the steering wheel moves for reach and height, its extension in and out isn't as extensive as it is in exceptionally tuneable models, such as the Ford Focus

Powerful LED headlights are fitted as standard across the range. In many rivals, you’ll either need to pay extra or upgrade to a posh trim level for these.

Sat nav and infotainment

Let’s start with the positives: the Corolla's 8.0in touchscreen is positioned helpfully high on the dashboard, making it easy to see and reach without distracting you.

What might distract you, though, is its complicated menu layout, something that isnt helped by the sluggish way in which the screen responds to prods. What's more, the screen resolution isn't very impressive and the graphics for navigation (sat-nav is standard from Icon Tech trim) look rather basic.
