Claimed CO2 emissions and fuel-consumption figures for the Corolla Touring Sports vary depending on which engine you go for and what size alloy wheels you get. You'll see up to 61mpg and as little as 103g/km CO2 emissions, which compares well with hybrid rivals. The days of cars like this being exempt from the London Congestion Charge or road tax are long gone, but figures like that do mean low company-car tax rates.

For the most efficient Corolla estate, you'll want the 1.8-litre hybrid drivetrain and a set of 16-inch alloy wheels. That should see you getting nearly 61mpg and emitting 103g/km of CO2. In comparison, the higher-riding Trek model in 2.0-litre hybrid guise sees emissions rise to 121g/km and fuel economy drop to just over 50mpg.

The Corolla's "self-charging" hybrid setup means it can't cover significant distances on electric power alone. It's at its most efficient in heavy, stop-start urban traffic, where it can spend around 50% of driving time in near-silent zero-emissions mode. Over longer distances and at higher speeds, it behaves more like a conventional petrol car.
