Independent reliability data and crash-test results aren't out yet, but the Corolla Touring Sports should perform well in both areas

As it only launched in early 2019, the Corolla Touring Sports hasn't yet been independently crash-tested by Euro NCAP and we can't yet say what its long-term reliability will be like.

What we can say is that it has plenty of standard safety kit (even on the entry-level model) and that Toyotas – especially hybrid Toyotas – have an excellent reliability record.

Toyota Corolla Touring Sports Hybrid reliability & problems

Toyota hybrids in general have very good reliability records, with the Prius in particular being a favourite of hard-working private-hire drivers.

We therefore don't anticipate any major issues with the Corolla, although we will have to wait until it has been on the market for a while before we can get independent verification of this. At least buyers will have the reassurance of Toyota's 100,000-mile/five-year warranty from the get-go.

Safety

There isn't yet a Euro NCAP crash-test score for the latest Corolla, however it probably won't be long before it's evaluated, as the car will be a big seller in Europe.

In any case, all trim levels of the Corolla get Toyota's 'Safety Sense' pack as standard, packed with technology that aims to prevent a crash happening in the first place.

This includes a pre-collision system, adaptive cruise control, lane-departure warning, road-sign recognition and automatic high-beam headlights.
