Which used Toyota Corolla saloon should I buy?

If you're after a Corolla, the saloon arguably isn't the place to start, as it's less practical than the hatchback and much harder to find on the used market.

That's partly because, in this class, the UK is a hatchback market, but also because the Corolla saloon range was much smaller than the hatchback's. For a start, there was never a diesel engine in the car and only two petrol engines, each with its own trim level.

If you're choosing between these two, our advice is simple: go for the 1.6.
