Toyota Corolla Saloon Hybrid MPG & CO2 emissions

Economy and emissions on the Toyota Corolla Saloon Hybrid are decent for a car of this size

Fuel Fuel tank capacity MPG (WLTP combined) CO2
Petrol 43 litres 53.9-65.5mpg 77-83g/km

The Toyota Corolla Saloon Hybrid should return between 53.9 and 65.5mpg, and the hybrid system will fare best in urban conditions such as driving through a city or around town.

The carmaker claims that in such conditions, the Corolla’s hybrid system is good enough to enable full-electric mode for half of urban mileage, during which you’ll use no fuel whatsoever as the battery takes over from the petrol engine.

For comparison, the Ford Mondeo Hybrid returns an official economy figure of 58.9mpg, putting it right in the mix with the Corolla Saloon Hybrid. However, we’ve found that the Mondeo’s economy is much poorer in the real world, so the Corolla may well have the upper hand here.

Toyota Corolla Saloon Hybrid MPG & CO2

The Toyota Corolla Saloon Hybrid emits 77g/km of CO2 on the smallest, 16-inch wheels that come as standard on the Icon and Icon Tech trim levels.

The top-spec Design trim comes with larger, 17-inch alloys, and these raise CO2 emissions to 83g/km. However, the combined economy range of 53.9-65.5mpg remains the same.

Unfortunately, 77g/km isn’t low enough to qualify for London Congestion Charge exemption, however low company-car tax remains an added bonus.
