The Corolla these days is a very generous car internally. The Yaris being a hybrid maybe a little cheaper on fuel but comfort on holiday I believe is more important.

Andychef again I have been enlightened for the second time in a fortnight. You are right I got confused(which is not uncommon for me) between the Prius and the Yaris. The Prius a larger car is now becoming the most popular taxi , here in Wellington anyway.

Bean, Yaris isn't a hybrid. It's a straight 1.3l or 1.5l petrol vehicle.

Nice car, but for $44, the Corolla is a better option.

Kiwi are car nuts and petrol heads. You were lucky to get halfway decent sensible answers. Now if had asked: Ford or Holden........................

Personally I would toss a coin or see if one was in my favourite colour

The Corolla is the biggest selling new car in NZ. I am going to put a cat amungst the pigeon and say I was part of an evaluation team for a new hatchback for our fleet. The team were quite united in thinking the Corolla was a "dog". It came in 7th out of seven. The nostelgia buffs enjoyed its interrior resemblance to a MK1 Cortina.

We settled on the VW golf.

Mike oh lucky you. As someone who fixes cars I'd take a Corolla any day over a Golf. Far fewer repairs, and cheaper too. Golfs have too many niggly problems.
