The 1.4 diesel has been axed from the range, with Toyota indicating that its future models will no longer be offered with diesel-power.

The new 2.0-litre hybrid offers drivers an ‘energised drive’ according to Toyota, with more power and steering wheel-mounted shift paddles for a more dynamic, engaging experience. It also debuts Toyota’s new CVT gearbox, with a launch gear that should improve transmission efficiency at lower speeds.

Longer and lower than its predecessor, the Corolla cuts a sleeker shape on the road too, thanks to its longer bonnet and new roofline that is 47mm lower compared to the outgoing Auris model. The rear is also more rounded, with all-LED light clusters and a larger bumper.

As with the Auris, the Corolla will be built in the UK at Toyota’s Burnaston factory in Derbyshire while the plant in Deeside, North Wales will continue to be its main source for its engines in Europe.
