Shortly after launch in early 2019, the latest Corolla scored five stars in crash-testing by Euro NCAP, so protection is good. Toyotas in general – and 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. The Corolla follows suit – it managed a seventh-place finish in the 2020 Driver Power survey, with a reassuringly low percentage of reported faults. 

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

Euro NCAP rated the Corolla highly when it was crash-tested, awarding it five stars overall, 95% for adult occupant protection, 84% for child occupant protection and 77% for its safety assistance systems. Also, 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.
