Legendary reliability in a futuristic package – Meet the Toyota Corolla Hybrid

    The Toyota Corolla we all know and love has stepped into a new era and it’s more exciting than ever. With a heritage of more than five decades, it was reborn multiple times. However, this latest incarnation is a double premiere for the Corolla badge: it’s now back with a compact five-door hatchback body with a self-charging hybrid drivetrain. Both novelties are welcome developments for rideshare driving, making the car zippy as well as economical in the city.

    At just 4.2L/100km combined, it beats any traditional petrol engine in the fuel economy race, and the electric motor’s instant torque gives you the upper hand when accelerating from a stop. The clever and efficient CVT transmission ensures the smoothest ride currently available, while also saving you money at the service station – in tandem with the regenerative braking system.
