    Interior

    Photos and Images of the Toyota Corolla Interior

    Corollas have plenty of seat and wheel adjustments, to suit all occupant sizes. The analogue gauges flank two trip computer options, and ZR grades get a projecting head-up display.

    The touchscreen and infotainment systems offer nothing cutting-edge, and you need to option sat-nav and DAB in base models. But all have phone mirroring and reversing cameras.

    In terms of build quality the Corolla is always excellent, and all controls are functional and simple to use. There's nothing overly flash – stitch-work, and the ZR's ambient lighting aside – but function trumps form.

    Back seat space is not best-in-class, but two average-sized adults can fit back there, and there are outboard ISOFIX child-seat anchors, and top tether points.

    The sedan has 470L of luggage space, while the hatchback has between 217L and 333L. The larger of the two volumes is for models without a spare wheel. This is pretty pokey by class standards.

    Exterior

    Photos and Images of the Toyota Corolla Exterior

    The ZR hatch in particular looks quite sharp with its 18-inch wheels, but all have nice light signature and curvaceous, inoffensive styling.

    The edgier five-door hatch is definitely skewed towards younger buyers than the more safe and staid four-door sedan.

    Cost of Ownership

    What is the running, servicing and ownership costs of buying a Toyota Corolla?

    The first five services at intervals of 12 months or 15,000km apiece are each capped at $205 across the Toyota Corolla range.

    How it Drives

    Our expert take on Toyota Corolla drivability?

    The TNGA platform and all-round independent suspension (trailing wishbone rear) look good on paper, and indeed this Corolla is way sharper on turn-in and flatter through corners than older models.

    It's actually quite a sporty car in handling terms.

    However, the suppression of noise, vibration and harshness could be better, the ride quality on 18-inch wheels degrades over the 16s, and the hybrid – while extremely efficient – is a sluggish under hard acceleration.

    Corolla Safety Rating

    ANCAP Safety Rating Australia

    The Corolla has an ANCAP rating of five stars based on testing conducted in 2018. It received scores of 96 per cent in adult occupant protection, 83 per cent in child occupant protection, 86 per cent in vulnerable road user protection, and 76 per cent in safety assist.

    The entire range comes standard with the following safety features:

    • Autonomous emergency braking with pedestrian and cyclist detection

    • Lane-departure warning
    • Lane-tracing assist
    • Adaptive cruise control (high speed-only in manual models)

    Corolla Lifecycle

    Having launched in 2018, the Corolla is a tick over half way through its lifecycle. An update will likely arrive later in 2022.

    Corolla Options

    Options list for the Toyota Corolla

    Metallic paint is the only option.

    Corolla Warranty

    What is the warranty period and kilometre limit for the Toyota Corolla?

    The Toyota Corolla is backed by a five-year, unlimited-kilometre warranty.

    Corolla Stock Availability

    Is the Toyota Corolla available to buy now and what are stock levels and how long are wait times?

    All Toyotas are in short supply at the moment, but Corolla stock will improve as the year progresses.

    Corolla Boot Space

    How much luggage or cargo capacity and boot space is there in the Toyota Corolla?

    The sedan has a decent 470L of luggage space, while the hatchback has between 217L (pokey as heck) and 333L. The larger of the two volumes is for models without a spare wheel.

    Corolla Fuel Economy

    How much fuel does the Toyota Corolla use and what are its emissions?

    The 2.0-litre petrol Corolla uses 6.0L/100km on the combined cycle.

    Fuel economy in the hybrid is 4.2L/100km in the hatch and just 3.6L/100km in the sedan. Unbeatable.

    All models run on 91RON regular unleaded fuel and have a 50L fuel tank except for the hybrid models, which use a 43L tank.
