Toyota Corolla 2019: Which engine should we choose?

Asked by Catherine

We’re about to buy a new car. We’ve pretty much decided on the 2019 Toyota Corolla Touring Sports, which is a hybrid estate car. Typically we use the car 2-3 times a week for distances of 5-25 km, some motorway, some rural driving. Every three months or so we take a round trip of 1000 km. Should we buy the car in 1.8 or 2.0-litre engine?

The 2.0-litre engine would be the better choice for your longer trips where the petrol engine would play a greater role than it will in local driving. If you go for the 1.8-litre you would lose a little performance on those trips, but it would be the better choice for use around town.
