We were incredibly excited when we first heard the news that there would be a third Corolla model joining the lineup. As if the traditional sedan and hatchback weren’t already enough, the iconic compact car would be the latest Toyota model to get a hybrid powertrain. Unlike other hybrid vehicles on the lineup, the 2020 Toyota Corolla Hybrid in Moline IL is a monospec vehicle, meaning there aren’t various trim levels or anything, it’s just one model.
That doesn’t mean there aren’t opportunities for customization, though. There are seven different exterior color options to choose from and you can select either an all-black or light gray fabric for the interior. Everything else the Corolla Hybrid LE has to offer will be standard though, including the full suite of Toyota Safety Sense 2.0, an 8” display audio system with Apple CarPlay, Siri Eyes Free, Amazon Alexa and more, a 7” instrument cluster display, Smart Key System and more.
Performance & Efficiency of the 2020 Corolla Hybrid
Toyota has had decades to perfect its hybrid technology. As the brand that introduced the very first mass-produced hybrid vehicle, they’re among the elite when it comes to the technology. The brand-new Corolla Hybrid is powered by a 1.8L 4-cylinder engine with a Nickel-Metal Hydride battery for the ultimate blend of performance and efficiency. With an excellent suspension system, an electronically controlled continuously variable transmission and a front-wheel drivetrain, it’s sure to deliver an enjoyable experience every time you slide behind the wheel.
Plus, it’ll be kind to your wallet and bank account. Achieving an EPA-estimate 52 miles per gallon combined, it’s going to save you plenty of money at the gas station. As if this blend of performance and efficiency didn’t sound great enough as it is, there’s even a Hybrid Power Mode which, when pressed, increases throttle response to ratchet up the excitement even further.
