Award winning New Corolla

Following its eagerly-awaited February 2019 launch, the now multi award-winning, new generation Corolla continues to make waves among motoring journalists, industry judges and most importantly with Toyota owners.

On top of its exemplary 4.6 / 5 star customer approval rating, the Corolla is already gathering a suite of prestigious awards and nominations from the motoring press.

With over two decades of pioneering work with Self-Charging Hybrid technology, the Corolla was the first Toyota available with a choice of 1.8 and 2.0 litre Hybrids, which has helped it claim so many accolades.
