  1. Ok, I’ve figured it out... just need to hold the voice command button to enable google assistant or Siri.
  2. Mine arrived with it on Friday. Anything built since December is more than likely to have it installed. On a side note, any one know if the voice command button can be set to Google assistant as a default. At present it comes up with the toyota voice assistant.
  3. Had a call from the dealer today and it should be arriving imminently, which is around a week earlier than expected 👍 he did mention that every car has arrived on time or early so far this year.
  4. Similar wait here. I ordered the corolla HB 2.0l excel Oct 31st, was initially told January 8th. Rang them up to check as I would be without a car over Christmas and had not heard anything for a while. They told me they had good news and that the delivery had been brought forward... To Jan 23rd. Apparently it had been pushed back to the end of Feb at one point and I wasn't informed. They have leant me a new Aygo until mine is delivered, but I am now wondering if it will get pushed back again. Hopefully it's not long to go now.
  5. Taken from the toyota blog. Seems like the adaptive high beam never made it to the uk. https://blog.toyota.co.uk/explore-the-new-2019-toyota-corolla-comfort-and-technology LED headlamps Three LED headlight systems are featured in the Corolla line-up, according to model grade – a triple LED parabola unit headlamp; a bi-beam LED headlight with Automatic High Beam System; and an LED headlight with an Adaptive High-beam System.
  6. From my understanding, the lane keep assist is only active when cruise control is also on.
  7. No chain on the latest hybrid systems. Power is now fed through a series of final drive gears.
  8. That is pretty sweet. Did you have the opportunity to do the return journey? Will be interesting where the battery SOC levels out now that it has had a full charge.
  9. Cheers all. Any thoughts on the more powerful motor included on the 2.0l? Is it easier to keep in EV mode? I've also read that the battery seems quite hard to get to a charge above halfway.
  10. I've heard eco isn't great for highway driving. This is especially true on the yaris I'm driving at the moment. It's more suited to driving around town in stop start traffic.
  11. Yep, driven quite a few hybrids so far. I'm impressed by how far they have come along if I'm honest, even the yaris is quite enjoyable. I was blown away with how smooth the 2.0l was to drive on the test drive, just in the waiting period atm... Itching to get the keys!
  12. Cheers for your reply. I've been driving a 2018 yaris 1.5 hybrid on loan since my last car died and been getting around 62mpg in that on my commute currently. Fairly relaxed on the driving front, holding around 60mph on the motorway due to traffic and a mix of 50 & 30 for the rest. The old bmw was getting between 50-55mpg. Will be interesting to see how the 2.0l will compare to this and the 1.8l. Would expect to see between 55-60mpg in the new one but im sure I will find out soon enough. I've not seen a huge drop in MPGs in the yaris since it got colder, but not sure if this is because of the length of the drive and everything has a chance to get up to temp.
  13. Hi all, I've got a 2.0l excel HB on the way and just curious to know what MPGs you are all getting so far? I'm coming from a 2l diesel, so hoping to see something of an improvement, but I'm struggling to nail down some real world figures. Main type of driving for my commute will be a mix of motorway, country roads and small towns, around 50 miles each way. Thanks in advance! Dan
  14. There are fuse adapters / extenders available that should allow you to plug into a live fuse in the fuse box and create an additional circuit. Think this is how people ussualy go about it. A quick Google should find you what you need.
