Toyota Corolla Touring Sports - Best estate cars

The Toyota Corolla Touring Sports is an extremely competent package, with efficient engines and great residuals.

The Corolla Touring is a supremely practical family estate, while also offering great handling, comfort and running costs.

The petrol-hybrid system works well, providing good fuel economy and low emissions which means more affordable company car tax bills. Reliability is also key for a positive ownership experience, and Toyota has always been renowned for producing dependable cars - in fact the manufacturer finished in 6th position, out of 30 brands, in our Driver Power customer satisfaction survey.

The Corolla Touring is pretty good to drive, too, with a smooth ride and an effortless ability to tackle potholes and harsher bumps in the road. However, its CVT gearbox is best suited to a more relaxed driving style, as it can be rather noisy when accelerating hard.

Toyota’s Safety Sense 2 package includes a host of active safety kit and helped the Corolla achieve a full five-star Euro NCAP rating, which should give owners peace of mind when on the road.
