Toyota Corolla Hybrid MPG & CO2 emissions
|MPG (comb)||MPG (ex-urb)||MPG (urb)||CO2|
The claimed fuel economy and official CO2 emissions figures for the Toyota Corolla Hybrid hatchback vary considerably, depending on whether you go for the 1.8- or 2.0-litre hybrid powertrain, and exactly what size of alloy wheel you specify.
Economy ranges from 50 to 66mpg and CO2 emissions from 76 to 89g/km, which is broadly competitive with hybrid rivals such as the Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid (63mpg) and Kia Niro (60mpg).
Toyota Corolla Hybrid MPG & CO2
The most efficient Corolla Hybrid hatchback is the 1.8-litre hybrid on 16-inch wheels, which emits 76g/km of CO2 and returned nearly 66mpg under the WLTP testing procedure.
Increasing the wheel size to 17 or 18 inches ups the emissions to 83g/km, while the 2.0-litre hybrid engine (which is only available with the larger wheels) emits 89g/km of CO2 and will return just over 50mpg economy.
The Corolla will make the most difference to your running costs if you regularly tackle low-speed, stop-start urban driving. This gives the car's hybrid drivetrain the greatest opportunity to run in electric mode, with Toyota claiming that up to 50% of a typical commute can be covered on battery power.
For those who do more long-distance motorway runs, however, a modern diesel may make more financial sense.
