The SX sits in the middle of the Corolla sedan range and the list price for the petrol variant is $28,232 while the hybrid lists for $29,735.

Standard features on the SX include: LED headlights, tail-lights and daytime running lights; 16-inch alloy wheels; an 8.0-inch screen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto; fabric seats; and six-speaker stereo, climate control,  proximity unlocking, wireless phone charger, sat nav and digital radio.

The petrol variant has a 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine making 125kW/200Nm with a CVT auto.

The hybrid combines a 1.8-litre four-cylinder petrol engine  (72kW/142Nm) and an electric motor (53kW/163Nm). A CVT auto does the honours here, too.

Toyota says that after a combination of open and urban roads it should use 6.0L/100km with the automatic transmission and 6.5 with the manual gearbox.

The hybrid is the mileage hero with Toyota saying the combined fuel economy is 3.5L/100km.

The Corolla hatch scored the maximum five-star ANCAP rating when it was tested in 2018. Coming standard across the range is advanced safety equipment such as AEB with pedestrian and cyclist detection, active cruise control, lane departure alert with steering assistance, auto high beam, lane trace assist with lane centring and speed sign recognition.
