Style & Design
5/10

The Corolla is saloon-only now and isn't sold in most European markets anymore. The styling is very much aimed at the American market so it's in line with the US Camry and Avalon: decent-looking but rather unadventurous, which is just fine with its core buyer.

Performance
5/10

The 1.4 petrol puts in a sterling performance given its small capacity but the Corolla is still rather slow, with no option of going any faster. 1.4 diesel is slower off the line but better at maintaining motorway speeds.

Ride & Handling
5/10

The ride quality is decent in the Corolla, though the VW Golf and Focus, both of which have sophisticated rear suspensions, are more refined and sure-footed. The handling is competent but un-involving though less roll and more grip would be nice.

Interior & Ergonomics
6/10

The cabin is more conservative than that of the Auris, but only insofar as it dispenses with the pointless dashboard bridge and fiddly handbrake. It's as straighforward as a cabin could be and the driving position is much improved over the old model. It's extremely drab, though.

Quality & Refinement
7/10

The ride quality is decent, if unexceptional, and the cabin is about average in terms of quietness and refinement. While most of the plastics are hard and shiny to the touch and the stereo looks positively 1980s the built quality is, as you'd expect, exceptional and the car is squeak-free.

Safety
7/10

The Corolla has 5 NCAP stars for crash protection and has rear ISOFIX child seat mounts, seven airbags and anti-whiplash seats as standard but ESP isn't offered, even as an option. It also lacks rear seatbelt reminder and fancier options like active headlamps etc.

Space & Practicality
6/10

We were surprised to find that the Corolla has less legroom than the model it replaced, not that that car Tardis to begin with. Front passengers are much better taken care of but the rear is very cramped. The boot is huge but there's no wagon option. Toyota Auris is the hatchback equivalent.

Value & Running Costs
9/10

The basic Corolla is about the same price as its main competitors and offers about the same level of specification. Running costs should be below average with cheap insurance, low tax, no reliability problems, fuel efficient engines and gold-bullion-like resale values.

Equipment
8/10

The Terra and Strata models have the basic electric window/mirror/remote locking/CD player package and lots of airbags. Strata adds 16-inch alloys and foglights but for just €1k more you can have the top Luna model which has A/C, rear electric windows, leather steering with stereo controls.

Engine Specifications
6/10

In Ireland only two engines are offered, a 97hp 1.4-litre and a 90hp 1.4 diesel. Neither engine is particularly quick but while the petrol accelerates with more verve, the diesel cruises better and isn't as harsh when revved.

I’ve just been out in the Toyota Auris for a week and found it a touch disappointing, I have to confess. I had expected the Auris hatchback to rock my world but instead it just rocked me to sleep. Toyota’s spin doctors would have us believe it’s a true segment buster, just as the Yaris was, but alas it’s not.

It’s a tall, wide hatchback that doesn’t drive badly and is well equipped, but has an overwrought centre control and rather lacklustre plastics. That would be fine if I hadn’t been built up to expect so much more. Sometimes marketing has a way of backfiring, I think. The reason I tell you this is because right after I dropped the Auris back I collected a new Toyota Corolla, which is essentially a booted Auris from an engineering point of view.

The Corolla name might not mean much to most Europeans but in Ireland it’s one of the top sellers, which is why the tenth derivative is being sold here in Ireland (and in Turkey) while the rest of Europe goes without. So what we have here is a saloon version of a car I didn’t care for much to begin with. Great. Here’s the thing, though.

Because the Corolla and Auris share pretty much all of their mechanical components, the Corolla handles just as well as the Auris does –not eye-widening fun, perhaps, but certainly responsive, grippy and well controlled. The engines are shared, too, so while our 97bhp 1.4-litre isn’t going to set any landspeed records it does cope surprisingly well with the saloon’s heavier body. The ride is firm but decently compliant over rough roads and the suspension doesn’t let too much road noise into the cabin, either.

The gearbox is a zillion times better than the old Corolla’s while the brakes are responsive and rather meaty, too. Just a little more steering weight and a touch more throttle steer is all that’s needed to make the Corolla a bit of a laugh, but as it is it’s certainly on a par with, say, the Jetta or Megane saloon. The Corolla’s interior is very similar to that of the Auris but instead of the annoying gear lever ‘bridge’ there’s a proper centre console with usable storage areas. Because this car will be sold in America, too, there are proper cupholders and an armrest storage box so deep you could store a few pizzas in there. It’s not the most exciting interior design in the world but at least it’s well made (with fewer painted plastic surfaces and half-hearted embellishments than the Auris) and utterly painless to use.

The driving position and seats are also well up there with the class best, which means front-seat passengers are very well taken care of. However, because of its odd proportions (it has the same wheelbase as the old Corolla) it feels very cramped in the back compared to rivals from Ford or VW. I can’t say the styling does much for me either, but I doubt the featureless flanks and dreary detailing will dissuade many in the long line of prospective buyers. None of the saloons in this market segment are much to look at, to be honest, so why not buy one you know won’t go wrong. You know the best thing about the Corolla, though? The marketing. There’s no spin, no hype. In fact, the Corolla ad just features a picture of the car with some people getting into it, going somewhere to do something. They’re happy because it will start first time. They’re happy because it doesn’t draw unwanted attention. They’re happy because it rides better and is quieter than the old model, and will be worth more than any of its rivals second-hand. Come to think of it, I don’t think I like the marketing anymore. God, they don’t half look smug...

Hey folks just to warn people about 2011 Toyota Corolla diesel d4d. They have a problem once you go above 130000k where some gears can no longer be engaged. To fix the issue the gearbox needs to be removed which is going to cost you north of 1000 euros..Toyota customer support will not admit a fault and you are left to carry the cost. They will use excuse car is out of warranty ..note newer models may be affected also as Toyota seem to be in denial problem exists...be warned...ask around some independent garages and you will find this is becoming a known problem.. any prospective buyer of Corolla take note and stay away
