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

You might already be aware that our successful Rent to buy has launched in the UK, and this time we have further good news. Shortly after the product launch, we’ve added the new 2019 Toyota Corolla Hybrid Touring Sports to our selection.

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.

Here’s a summary of why we thought the new Toyota Corolla Touring Sports is ideal for ridesharing:
