    Anybody!?

    0-30

    Hi, does anyone know what the actual 0-30mph (or equivalent kmph) acceleration time is for the Corolla 2.0 hybrid? Can't seem to find it anywhere when doing an internet search. Thanks.
  3. We get snow and ice during the winter (usually!), surely that's cold enough to justify having this feature!
  4. Seems to related to Toyota connected services, not seen this in the UK yet, but it seems to be a thing in the US. https://youtu.be/xpbK6ZBhJvY
  5. After watching some YouTube reviews of the Corolla, it seems that in other countries (the US for example), the app allows you to remotely start the engine and start the heater. It seems that the UK are behind again (as usual!)
  6. So, does the Toyota app allow you to look at stats like fuel usage, plus other useful things like starting the heater remotely - UK version etc..?
  7. Hi Bruce, when you say January of this year, do you mean 2020, or 2019 - as I test drove a used car from 2019, so maybe this has something to do with it.
  8. So, which models get the HUD - is it from Design upwards?
  9. Hi, this was a Toyota dealership and it didn't have a head up display either!
  10. Hi Lee, that's really weird as the car I test drove had the GR Sport logo on the back, it was a 2019 reg and it definitely did not have the parking assist button down by the other side of the steering wheel (door side), so I'm not sure what's going on there. Also, do you know if Toyota garages are retro-fitting the AA/CP to the early Corollas already, or is that something that's coming soon? It definitely didn't have AA/CP either! Thanks.
  11. Hi Lee, I drove a used GR, so I'm guessing that the early ones didn't get Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. What I meant my park assist was the self parking technology which most new(ish) cars seem to have these days. This was definitely missing from the GR I test drove, so am trying to ascertain which models have got this and when they started getting it, if not on the 2019 cars.
  12. Hi, I've got a 2013 Leon FR, so just with 138bhp, so the slow version basically. The 2.0 litre Corolla didn't feel slower really when accelerating, although it's quite hard to tell.
  13. Finally got to test drive the 2.0 litre hybrid today and was quite impressed. It's about as fast accelerating as my Leon FR, although it does roar a bit! The salesman told me that if I put the gear into sport and used the paddle shifters, then I could effectively change up quicker and so not rev so much, but it didn't feel like the paddles were doing much at all, as you can't feel the gears actually change, which probably makes sense as its a CVT box, so a bit confused by that. Overall, a good comfortable drive and reasonably quick I think. I was driving the GR sport version and was expecting it to have parking assist and blind spot monitoring, but it didn't have either of those, so does anybody know which model(s) have these, as it's not obvious from the stats online? He also said that it's possible now to get the retro fit of Android Auto and Apple Carplay done at Halfords - is this actually the case?
  14. Yes, I've also read that an upgrade will be available for Android Auto or Apple CarPlay from May for existing Corollas, for something between £100 - £200 I think, which sounds very promising!
  15. Hi Andrue, thanks for your response. I've just heard on most YouTube reviews of the Corolla that the infotainment system is not up to the standard of other new cars in the class. Nearly every review has stated that it's sluggish (not very responsive) and the lack of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto is pretty bad for a new car, but I'm sure it's just a matter of opinion and I'll be checking it out once I get to actually test drive one.
