Toyota Corolla returns to the top

More than 90 per cent of all Corollas sold are self-charging hybrids

Toyota Ireland has announced its Corolla has returned to the number one spot in the Irish market.

Though the Corolla only arrived in Ireland in February of this year, its popularity with Irish customers has ensured it steadily rose to become Ireland’s best-selling car of 2019 year to date, with the latest figures confirming this.

The new generation Corolla was launched in February with a new design both inside and out. Built using the latest hybrid technology, Toyota says its TNGA platform guarantees an "even more rewarding driving experience, allowing for better handling, and stability without compromising ride and comfort".

And with self-charging hybrids accounting for more than 90 per cent of its sales, Toyota Ireland says it is clear Irish customers believe hybrid is the best option right now with excellent fuel efficiency, lower emissions and in electric mode for 60 per cent of the time on average.

Prices start from €24,380 (including VAT, excluding delivery charge ) in the petrol variant, and as the Corolla has fuel efficiency from 3.4 l/100km (WLTP 4.3 l/100km ) and CO2 emissions of 77g/km (WLTP 98g/km ), it is an affordable and sustainable choice for consumers.

Commenting on the announcement, Steve Tormey, chief executive of Toyota Ireland, said the company was delighted Toyota Corolla was back in the number one spot, "further cementing its position as Ireland’s favourite car".

"The new generation Corolla has a sleek and dynamic design and it’s clear Irish customers like the new look and feel too. And the fact that more than 90 per cent of sales of the Corolla is hybrid is fantastic, meaning lower emissions and better air quality for everyone.”
