Toyota Corolla Saloon Hybrid running costs

Low CO2 emissions make the Toyota Corolla Saloon Hybrid an attractive company car, and other costs are low too

Insurance group Warranty Service intervals 2018/19 company car cost (20%/40%)
N/A 60 months / 100,000 miles N/A £1,038.40 / £2,076.80

With prices starting from £23,750, the Toyota Corolla Saloon Hybrid looks like a keenly priced proposition in a market where premium vehicles are more prominent. The Ford Mondeo Hybrid costs from £26,395, while the forthcoming BMW 330e plug-in hybrid is set to cost a great deal more.

With CO2 emissions ranging from 77-83g/km, all versions of the Corolla Saloon Hybrid attract a Benefit-in-Kind company-car tax rate of 22% for 2019/20 and 2020/21: in base-spec Icon trim, this translates into annual payments of £1,038.40 or £2,076.80 for 20% and 40% taxpayers respectively.

Fuel economy of 53.9-65.5mpg should ensure that trips to the petrol station are few and far between.

Unfortunately, the Corolla Saloon Hybrid misses out London Congestion Charge exemption.
