    1. Hi Michael,

      Thanks for getting in touch. Paddle shift on the steering wheel is not available on the 1.8l hybrid engine, however is available on the 2.0l hybrid engine.

    1. Hi Michael,

      Thanks for getting in touch. It’s great to hear that you are interested in the Corolla Touring Sports. Whether a Spare Wheel or Tyre Repair Kit is provided is dependent on a couple of factors. Do you have a particular grade and engine in mind?


        1. Hi Michael.

          We can confirm that this grade comes with a Tyre Repair Kit, however, you would be able to purchase a spare wheel kit via your local Toyota Centre.


  1. On the new corolla what is the point of electric parking brake and hold brake surely the outcome is the same

    1. Hi Michael,

      Thanks for getting in touch. The hold brake allows you to take your feet off the brake pedal and can only be used whilst the car is running, for example when waiting at traffic lights. The electric parking brake, however, can also be used when the car isn’t running, for example when parking over night on a gradient.

      We hope this helps.

  2. does the new Corolla in the UK have a head up display, as shown when the car was announced, and at what grades?

  3. I’ve been looking on you tube at the touring sport Corolla and it says something about sos button
    will it be available on the Uk version and how does it work

    1. Hi Michael,

      Thank you for getting in touch. As standard on all grades, the vehicle features airbag sensors that register an accident and the car then makes a no-cost 999 emergency call. Drivers and passengers can also make the call by pushing a button.


    1. Hi Alan,

      Thanks for getting in touch and we are very sorry for the delay in response. We will be back to you as soon as possible.


    2. Hi Alan, TRK refers to Tyre Repair Kit. This option can be taken over spare wheel to maximise luggage capacity. We hope this helps.

  4. Can you elect to have 16 inch wheels on all the ” higher end” cars. With the state of our roads large wheels/ thin tyres make for a very hard ride.

    1. Hi Graham,

      Thank you for these comments. Customer feedback is very important to us and so we will pass this on to our Product Team.


  5. Hi, is there no Smart Key as standard so no touch entry unless Excel? Does this model not have CarPlay either? Was keen to order until I saw that! I saw it on US model?!

    1. Hi Oliver,

      Thanks for getting in touch, we can confirm that Smart Entry is only available in the Excel grade with CarPlay unavailable in this model. Whilst we cannot comment on other markets, we take all feedback into account and will continue to pass any feedback on to our Product team.


  6. Why are you still persisting with the Toyota touch 2 infotainment system? Why not spend a bit of time and introduce this brand new model with Android Auto?

    1. Hi Geoffrey,

      Thank you for getting in touch. We can appreciate that there has been some negative feedback on our blogs and social channels regarding the Toyota Touch 2 Multimedia system, we pass all feedback on to our product team with the aim for future improvements.

      If you would like to contact our Customer Relations team regarding this, you can find their details as follows: https://www.toyota.co.uk/contact-us/


  7. Hallo der Elektrische Kofferraumdeckel und der Abstands Tempomat ist ab welcher Ausstattung verfügbar?
    Mfg Jakob Klotz

    1. Hello Jakob,

      Thank you for contacting us. We would advise for you to contact the Toyota in your region, as they will be able to assist you further.


    1. Hi Michael,

      Thanks for getting in touch and apologies for the delay in our response. We are currently liaising with our Product Team and will be back to you as soon as possible.


      1. A couple of things – the US Toyota Prius has a heated steering wheel option; a Nissan Leaf has a heated steering wheel option. The latter is definitely a competitor for the Corolla.

  8. My pcp agreement expires in April 2019 on Auris hybrid.Will it be possible to have delivery of a new Corolla to coincide please.

    1. Hi Peter,

      First customer deliveries of Corolla will commence from 1st March. We recommend contacting your Toyota centre for more info. Thanks.

      1. Hi Peter,

        Thanks for your interest in the 2019 Corolla. The first wave of demonstrators will arrive at the network during the week commencing 28/01/2019. We recommend contacting out nearest dealer to register your interest, and for exact timings of colour and trims charts. Thanks.

  9. Is the “eight-speaker JBL premium sound system” only available as an optional and only for the most expensive model (Excel 2.0)???

    This is one more upsetting detail, after the lack of CarPlay, about the new Corolla.

    I guess I’ll use my Auris one more year, or I’ll move to a Nissan Leaf which, in the 30k range, offers much more than a Corolla.

    It’s a pity, I was really planning to buy a Corolla early next year.

    1. Hi Giovanni,

      That’s correct – JBL premium sounds system is only available on the highest grade vehicle. Thanks.

    2. I dont get it either, US version gets Carplay. And why on earth would it not have Android Auto…80% of the world population has android + corolla is the most sold car ever. Im suspecting that they pull the same thing that Mazda did with offering them as a retrofit at a cost.

      1. Hi Renno,

        Thank you for your comment and we are sorry to hear that you are disappointed. As previously mentioned, we will be sure to pass these comments to our Product Team.

        If you would like to contact our Customer Relations team regarding this, you can find their details as follows: https://www.toyota.co.uk/contact-us/.


      2. Both Android Auto & Apple Carplay have many privacy implication to think about by the manufactures when they decide whether to implement into their cars, something the Japanese brands take more seriously then others…..

        1. Individuals can restrict or review privacy settings from their mobile device – should they feel troubled. Clearly many owners and other manufacturers feel more concerned about providing constantly up to date navigation and mobile connectivity! – really also being a safety feature.
