In the compact sedans, the podium of the Argus Trophies 2019 was hard to guess this year: an ever more talented Kia Ceed, a Ford Focus in terms of increased hospitality, a Mercedes A-class with voice command. "smart" and spectacular screens, the victory finally went to the Toyota Corolla, pragmatic … but not only.
Thanks to its hybrid technology, a guarantee of success these days and that has brought the Corolla to the top of the budget ranking: Riquiqui consumption, no penalty, nice residual value, purchase price less than a 100% electric model (33 300 € for the sheet (6,000 € bonus deducted). All assets now have a more dynamic exterior presentation, more qualitative interior design and a more powerful version (2.0 to 180 hp in addition to the 1.8 to 122 hp) that will deter the public from the sluggishness of compact hybrids at the Street.
