What is it?

Things aren’t all bad in the UK car industry, this all-new Toyota Corolla a case in point. It’s a British-built family hatchback, which, on first impressions earlier this month on Spanish soil, revealed itself to have true class-leading potential.

A car we should grow to be quite proud of then, and some comeback, too. Remember, this new Corolla replaces the Auris, which was about as uninspiring a car in the class as you could imagine. That car one hand on the wooden spoon in a segment that’s 15-20 models strong, rather than jostling for gold.We went into great detail on the background to the new Corolla and its dynamic make-up on our recent first drive, which you can read here.

New Toyota Corolla starts rolling off the line in Britain

New Toyota Corolla starts rolling off the line in Britain Despite Brexit, Toyota commited to the UK in 2017 and production of the new Corolla has now begun at its plant in Burnaston, Derbyshire The post New Toyota Corolla starts rolling off the line in Britain appeared first on Motoring Research.

All New Toyota Corolla Hybrid . Stylish, efficient and a joy to drive, the all new Corolla hatchback is designed to match your driving needs including a choice of two self-charging hybrid engines - a 1 . 8 litre hybrid and a 2.0 litre hybrid -engine giving you a responsive and smooth ride as well as the power

First Drive. Toyota Corolla 1 . 8 Hybrid hatchback 2019 UK review . Toyota would have you add the new Corolla to that list. Confused? Don’t be. That name hasn’t been seen in this country for more than 10 years, but the sharp-edged hatchback before you (along with its estate and saloon derivatives) is

Our test car here is also in the range-topping Excel trim, our Corollas sharing a cabin design, trim and spec sheets. So what’s new for this second appraisal for the Corolla back on home soil after its Spanish holiday is our first chance to test the lower-powered of two the hybrid powertrains on offer, plus the chance for that overhauled new chassis to show its mettle on roads that will really show how good it is. We’ll focus on that here.

What is it like?

The drivetrain in this Corolla is identical to that of the Prius, mixing a 1.8-litre Atkinson cycle petrol engine with Toyota’s e-CVT hybrid transmission and running gear. The system puts out 120bhp, and offers up to 65mpg on the new WLTP combined cycle and 83g/km CO2 emissions.

Driven: 2019 Toyota Corolla What is it?

First Drive. Toyota Corolla 1 . 8 Hybrid hatchback 2019 UK review . Like the Auris, the Corolla will be built at Toyota ’s Burnaston plant, and it will be offered with the familiar 1.2-litre petrol engine and a choice of two petrol hybrid powertrains of either 1 . 8 litres and 118bhp, or 2.0 litres and 176bhp.

Toyota Corolla 1 . 8 Hybrid hatchback 2019 UK review . A 0-62mph time of 8.1sec puts the Corolla comfortably on par with the 2.0-litre diesel-engined cars that buyers are likely to be benchmarking it against, as does the 74.3mpg economy figure.

So the driving experience is a familiar one from the Prius; not one of excitement, more one that just works with a nice easy-going manner. We were regularly seeing above 50mpg on our mixed roads test route, the car quiet and relaxed in its road manners and regularly switching silently and unobtrusively between hybrid and all-electric power for even quieter short bursts.

There’s a decent amount of torque at step off to make this Corolla quite sprightly over a 0-30mph sprint, before the familiar CVT drone kicks in when you keep asking the engine for more over a mid-high rev range. It runs out of puff a bit here, and the performance gets far more limited and with no driver involvement.

Subaru Impreza review: left-field family hatchback choice

Subaru Impreza review: left-field family hatchback choice Cards on table time – we’re big fans of Subaru, a hidden gem of a car brand if ever there was one. A left-field choice perhaps, but Subaru has a loyal following – especially for its Outback, XV and Forester SUVs. The problem for Subaru is that its 4x4s are so capable and durable that existing owners hang on to them for years, so they don’t have the turnover of some rivals. © Provided by Fresh Press Media The Impreza is no SUV, but it does boast the same Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system and unusual ‘Boxer’ petrol engine as its siblings.

This drivetrain should also get the more out of what is a much-improved chassis, which impresses here as much as it did in Spain. The old Auris wobbled its way down the road like an old roller skate, seemingly engineered by folk for whom driving enjoyment was a completely alien concept.

Not so this Corolla. There’s real feel to the steering, a smooth ride quality at speeds, impressive body control and a decent amount of grip. This chassis tuning, mixed with things like a comfortable, nicely laid out driving position and good control weights, make this the kind of car you can seamlessly slip into and enjoy driving a mile down the road to Morrisons as you would the length of the M1. A Volkswagen Golf does similar.

Both traits are likely affected by the hybrid drivetrain (integration with the brakes, the weight of the hybrid system on the ride), and neither is a deal breaker.

Audi A1 review: dinky hatchback is all grown up

Audi A1 review: dinky hatchback is all grown up Audi’s new entry-level A1 is all grown-up. We’ve been road-testing the baby hatchback, now with attitude…. The outgoing Audi A1 was a little gem with its dinky looks, quality interior, premium finish and fun driving characteristics. The all-new model is more of the same, but improves in every area. Sharing a platform with its impressive VW Group cousins, the Seat Ibiza and Volkswagen Polo, helps because both cars are right up there with the latest Ford Fiesta at the top of the supermini class.

Should I buy one?

The Corolla is built here and it also feels like its been developed for our roads. This hybrid version doesn’t show the car at its very best, but it’s still a darn good machine.

So while this particualr powertrain doesn’t engage (apart from with your wallet), the chassis certainly does. Bravo, Toyota, and welcome back to the sharp end of the class.
