Toyota Yaris and Corolla honoured in the Electrified Top 50 Awards

7 July 2023
  • Yaris named Best Hybrid Small Car for second year in succession 
  • Corolla claims Best Hybrid Medium Estate Car title 

Toyota models have earned a brace of honours in the 2023 Electrified Top 50 Awards. Yaris continues to set the benchmark in the category for Best Hybrid Small Car, winning the title for the second year in a row. Corolla, meanwhile, in Touring Sports form, takes honours as the Best Hybrid Medium Estate. 

Their success and inclusion, together with the all-new, all-electric bZ4X SUV, in the top 50 rankings, demonstrate the real-world effectiveness of Toyota’s multi-path technology approach to achieving sustained reductions in CO2 emissions – a strategy that includes hybrid electric, plug-in hybrid electric, battery electric and fuel cell electric powertrains. 

Announcing Yaris’s award, Iain Robertson Diesel and Eco Car Editor, said: “Our favourite small hybrid is unchanged from last year, because nothing has dethroned the excellent Yaris Hybrid. Its 1.5-litre petrol engine and electric motor make it nimble to drive, with tidy handling and a comfortable ride.” 

Turning to Corolla, he remarked: “If you need a hybrid estate, look no further than the UK-built Corolla, which is not only cheap to run and good to own, but also as reliable as a lump hammer. A facelift for 2023 added some welcome extra power, so even the 1.8-litre version should feel nippy, and comfortably top 60mpg.” 

He also noted that Toyota’s warranty programme, which gives up to 10 years’ or 100,000 miles cover, subject to servicing at an authorised Toyota workshop*, adds to the appeal and value of both models.
