Oddly we seem to get more models, we get hatchbacks as well as sedans
which don't appear to be available in the US but the US range includes a
model with a 2.4lt engine but we only get 1.8lt engines.

From Toyota's website:
<dimension - spec - model>
Size in inches
Headroom: 38.3 (Prius) 38.8 (Corolla)
Shoulder Room: 54.9 (Prius) 54.8 (Corolla)
Hip Room: 52.7 (Prius) 53.0 (Corolla)
Leg Room: 42.5 (Prius) 41.7 (Corolla)
On those figures I make the Corolla offering slightly more hip room and
slightly less leg room. Either way there is less than an inch difference
