New Toyota Corolla crowned Affordable Hybrid of the Year in 2019 Auto Express Awards
The new self-charging Toyota Corolla has amassed another major honour, named the Affordable Hybrid of the Year in the 2019 Auto Express Awards.
The New Corolla was launched in February 2019 and represents Toyota’s latest advances in self-charging hybrid technology. As the first Toyota to be offered with a choice of two different full hybrid powertrains, the New Corolla boasts dynamic, safety and design. Significantly, it benefits being constructed on a Toyota New Global Architecture – TNGA – platform.

The Corolla is the latest Toyota model to be built in Britain - the Hatchback and Touring Sports versions are built at Toyota Manufacturing UK’s car plant near Derby and the hybrid petrol engines are supplied by the TMUK factory in Deeside, North Wales.

Andrew Cullis, Toyota GB Communications and Product Director, said;
“This award reflects our success in pioneering self-charging hybrid technology and bringing it to the heart of the mainstream market, with more experience and a wider choice of models than any other manufacturer.
“We have broken new ground with Corolla, giving customers a choice of two hybrid powertrains with different power outputs and different driving character, but with fundamentally the same fuel efficiency and low emissions, plus our hallmark Toyota quality, durability and reliability. It’s a genuinely affordable model that we’re proud to build here in Britain.”
