The 2019 Corolla Hybrid Touring Sports, WhatCar’s car of the year in the Hybrid category is now available on the Flexi subscription

Keeping running costs at a reasonable level is a cornerstone of any business, and on-demand driving is no exception. Every penny you can chip away from your fuel bill adds to your profit, so fuel economy is a subject Uber drivers take seriously for a good reason.


In present-day conditions, hybrid-drive cars offer the most convenient middle ground between practicality and fuel economy. You just fill up and go just as you would with any car, but you get to enjoy the instant torque of the electric motor, the availability of the 1.8-litre, 122-horsepower petrol engine, as well as an ultra-low consumption due to the clever teamwork of the two.

The new Toyota Corolla Touring Sports is one of the best cars for Uber. Here’s why it’s ideal for ridesharing:
