The Toyota Corolla Saloon will seat five adults, although the passenger in the middle rear seat may have to put up with less shoulder space depending on their size.

Toyota Corolla Saloon interior space, storage & comfort

Overall, interior space is very good: the Corolla Saloon sits on the same platform as the Touring Sports estate, which means legroom and kneeroom are plentiful both in the front and in the back.

However, the saloon bodystyle has a negative effect on headroom in the rear because the roofline swoops downwards at the back of the car.

When it comes to passenger space, the Ford Mondeo Hybrid is probably the better bet: it’s slightly longer than the Corolla Saloon Hybrid, affording more room to occupants. Its boot is much smaller, however.

Boot space

The Corolla Saloon boasts 471 litres of boot space, comfortably more than the 361 litres you get from the hatchback, but a good deal behind the near-600 litres offered by the Touring Sports estate.

There’s less scope to load bulky items into the Corolla Saloon, because shape of the car reduces the aperture of the boot, and the rear seats don't fold down. That said, the boot is a decent size and will happily hold a couple of suitcases and a pair of weekend bags.
