Toyota Corolla Touring Sports Hybrid running costs

Company-car drivers will welcome the Corolla Touring Sports Hybrid's low CO2 emissions; other costs should be reasonable, too

The Corolla Touring Sports Hybrid won't be an expensive car to run by most standards – although depending on exactly what mileage and type of driving you do, a plug-in hybrid like the Kia Optima or Kia Niro could be even cheaper day-to-day. A diesel estate like a Volkswagen Golf or Ford Focus may also make more financial sense for long-distance motorway drivers.

Toyota Corolla Touring Sports Hybrid insurance group

We don't yet have confirmed UK insurance ratings for the Corolla Touring Sports Hybrid. Its predecessor, the Auris Touring Sports Hybrid, had group ratings as low as 9, but the Corolla may be slightly higher – particularly in powerful 2.0-litre guise.

Warranty

Toyota sells all its passenger cars in the UK with a 100,000-mile/five-year warranty, giving buyers exceptional peace of mind.

Depending on your anticipated mileage and how long you expect to hold on to your car, only Hyundai's (five years with no mileage limit) and Kia's (seven years/100,000 miles) are better.

Servicing

Toyota hasn't yet confirmed exact service prices for the Corolla Touring Sports Hybrid, but they'll probably be not far off what you pay for an Auris: £185 for an 'Intermediate' service, £335 for a 'Full' service and £395 for a 'Full Plus'.

Road tax

As a hybrid, the Corolla Touring Sports will cost £130 a year to tax – or £140 if you go for the non-hybrid 1.2-litre petrol engine.
