The new Toyota Corolla Saloon will arrive in Ireland in early 2019, priced from €26,820.
For the first time ever, the Toyota Corolla Saloon is arriving as a petrol electric hybrid and will feature a 1.8-litre, 122hp self-charging hybrid powertrain.
There will also be a purely petrol variant, however Toyota Ireland predicts that 90% of Corolla sales in Ireland in 2019 will be hybrid.
The new Toyota Corolla Saloon is built on the same Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) platform as the rest of the models in the Toyota Corolla Hybrid family including the hatchback and estate. However, the Saloon’s individuality within the Corolla family is reflected in its unique front and rear styling.
The Saloon also benefits from the same extended 2,700 mm wheelbase as the Touring Sports, ensuring more legroom and comfort for rear seat passengers.
Toyota has released fuel economy values for the two Corolla Saloon models with the 1.8-litre Hybrid achieving 4.3l/100 km and CO2 emissions of 98g/km on the new WLTP cycle.
The improved 1.6-litre petrol engine (132hp) with six-speed manual transmission delivers fuel economy of 6.1l/100 km and emissions of 139g/km on the WLTP cycle.
Further pricing and specifications on the new Corolla range are available from Toyota dealerships. Before its official arrival in Ireland, members of the public can view the new Corolla range on December 13th in the Clayton Hotel, Dublin. In January 2019, all Toyota dealerships across Ireland will host the new models as part of the 2019 Hybrid Roadshow. Toyota is asking customers to check what date in January the Roadshow will arrive at their local dealer.
