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 53-63mpg should ensure that trips to the petrol station are few and far between, but unfortunately, the Corolla Saloon 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.

However, in June 2021, Toyota introduced an extension to its warranty offering, called 'Toyota Relax'. This means you can continue extending your Toyota's warranty cover up to 10 years or 100,000 miles, simply by getting it serviced on time at an official Toyota dealer each year.

Servicing

Servicing prices for the 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

As a hybrid, the Corolla Saloon attracts a VED (road tax) rate of £145 a year, which is a small discount on the £155 a year paid by owners of purely petrol or diesel-engined cars.
