With prices starting from around £24,000, the Toyota Corolla Saloon looks like a keen proposition in a market where premium vehicles are more prominent. The Ford Mondeo Hybrid costs from around £26,000, while the BMW 330e plug-in hybrid costs a great deal more.

Fuel economy of 54-66mpg should ensure that trips to the petrol station are few and far between, but unfortunately, the Corolla Saloon Hybrid misses out London Congestion Charge exemption.

Toyota Corolla Saloon insurance group

The insurance group rating is 15 for all versions of the Corolla Saloon. The old Auris Hybrid featured in insurance brackets as low as group 9, however the Corolla Saloon will have slightly higher premiums.

Warranty

As with all of Toyota’s passenger cars, the Corolla Saloon comes with a 100,000-mile/five-year warranty. Depending on how long you expect to own the car and your anticipated annual mileage, only Hyundai’s unlimited-miles/five-year warranty and Kia’s seven-year/100,000-mile warranty offer more reassurance.

Servicing

Servicing prices for the Toyota Corolla Saloon have yet to be confirmed, although they shouldn’t deviate too far from those of the Auris. An ‘Intermediate’ service cost £185 on that particular model, with a ‘Full’ service and ‘Full Plus’ service costing £335 and £395 respectively.

Road tax

With CO2 emissions between 76-90g/km, first-year road tax for the Corolla Saloon stands at £95. Thereafter, it’s £135 per year.
