This car has been superseded by a newer model, click here to go to the latest Toyota Corolla Hatchback review.

Parkers overall rating: 4 out of 5 4.0

Side airbags, ABS, five three-point rear seat belts and ISOFIX child seat anchor points are all standard. Four-star Euro NCAP rating. No alarm as standard but immobiliser, remote central double locking, security etching, unique-fit stereo, and marked parts should discourage thieves.

The boot is roomy and a good size for its class, certainly adequately proportioned to carry the weekly bags of shopping. The boot is easy to load and there are plenty of cubbies dotted around the cabin for glasses, CDs and maps etc. Corolla has a tight five-metre turning circle and speed sensitive power steering, so supermarket parking is made easier.
