The gritty lines of the Toyota Corolla 5-door are the concrete confirmation of how the House of the three ellipses has embarked on a new stylistic course, made of cars full of personality. Just think of the CH-R , with which the Corolla shares the floor, but with the step increased here by 4 cm, to the advantage of habitability. With the Corolla, the Japanese have also faced another challenge, not a small one, always on the design front: to give the compact 5-door a sister wagon that was no different.

For this reason, we decided to propose this comparison , in some ways, unusual: the compact against the family member. Well, let’s start by saying that the challenge of creating a estate that matches a compact so rich in personality has been overcome very well. The Corolla Touring Sports , not only possesses all the characteristics for pleasure, but also has the papers in order to act as a reference point for the segment. Both in terms of style and in terms of content. In addition, the ace of a hybrid propulsion system that deserves praise for efficiency, the result of a continuous process, plays: the Corolla in fact mounts a new lithium-ion battery that makes its hybrid system even more effective than that, already a lot advanced, of the CH-R.

Appealing is the word that comes to mind, when we take advantage of the 180 hp 2.0-liter versions tested in our test. In fact, a pleasantly gritty character merges, the delivery of power is in fact fluid, as is the passage from electric propulsion to petrol. All this induces to exploit the cavalry well supported by a nice flat trim, which translates into a remarkable driving precision, very appealing when, in the paths full of curves, the precision in insertion of this car emerges clearly.
