    About the Corolla

    The 2023 Toyota Corolla is one of Australia's top-selling passenger vehicle, and one of the best-known nameplates in the world. It's available as a hatchback or sedan, with petrol and hybrid engines.

    The new Toyota Corolla has hit Australian dealers and comes with updated tech, a more powerful hybrid, and some cosmetic tweaks.

    The changes come with some steep price hikes, however. The Ascent Sport hybrid sedan has seen the loftiest increase at $3785, but even the smallest increase is $2425.

    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.

    For the MY23, the Toyota Corolla's cosmetic tweaks are minor. There’s a new grille, as well as new 16-inch wheels for Ascent Sport and SX models, and new Sunstone Orange and Lunar Blue exterior finishes.

    There continue to be some unusual differences between hatch and sedan models. In addition to a slightly different colour palette, there’s a slightly different equipment list between the two body styles.

    Cost of Ownership

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

    The 2023 Toyota Corolla requires servicing every 12 months or 15,000km, whichever comes first, with the first five services capped at $205 each.

    How it Drives

    Our expert take on Toyota Corolla drivability?

    The 2023 Toyota Corolla range has two engine choices, starting with a naturally aspirated 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine with 126kW of power and 202Nm of torque (203Nm in the sedan).

    The hybrid pairs a 1.8-litre naturally aspirated petrol four-cylinder engine with an electric motor, for a combined power output of 103kW.

    The 2.0-litre engine comes with a continuously variable transmission (CVT) with 10 virtual gears. The hybrid is only available with an e-CVT.

    All Corollas are front-wheel drive. Hybrid models get Toyota’s new fifth-generation hybrid powertrain with an extra 13kW of power, for a total output of 103kW.

    There’s a new front drive motor and power control unit, while a newly developed lithium-ion battery is said to reduce weight by 14 per cent. You can now also get a ZR sedan with the hybrid powertrain. Previously, the ZR hybrid was hatch-only.

    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 2023 Toyota 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
    • Pedestrian and cyclist detection
    • Motorcycle detection (NEW)
    • Junction assist (NEW)
    • Emergency steering assist (NEW)
    • Lane-keep assist
    • Lane-departure warning
    • Lane-tracing assist (excludes manual models)
    • Adaptive cruise control (high speed-only in manual models)
    • Traffic sign recognition
    • Reversing camera
    • Front, front-side and curtain airbags
    • Driver’s knee airbag

    The SX and ZR add blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert. The former is also standard on all hatchback models.

    The Toyota Safety Sense suite of active safety features has been expanded, with the Corolla’s autonomous emergency braking system now featuring motorcycle detection and junction assist.

    Emergency steering assist is standard across the range while blind-spot monitoring, previously available only on the SX and ZR, is now standard on Ascent Sport hatchbacks.

    A new acceleration suppression feature reacts to sudden use of the accelerator when travelling at low speeds.

    Toyota’s Lane Trace Assist lane centring system also features an emergency stop feature, bringing the vehicle to a gradual stop if it detects the driver is no longer providing inputs.

    The company has also tweaked its adaptive cruise control system. It now features four distance settings and deceleration assist when changing lanes, and can now also detect vehicles earlier.

    Likewise, Toyota says it has improved the performance of its cameras and radar sensors.
