What's New in the 2020 Toyota Corolla Lineup?

Year after year, the Toyota Corolla is one of the most popular sedans on the road. Built with the level of quality and reliability families expect from Toyota, the Corolla is a legend - a car with a practically perfect combination of performance, capacity, and price. There's a reason it's the best selling car in the world and has been for decades.

Now, the new 2020 Toyota Corolla model lineup is here, and there is a lot to talk about.  This is an exciting milestone year for this venerable model, and if you're thinking about picking up a Corolla, now is a great time to get one.  Let's take a look at just a few of the new features!

What You Could Get with a New 2020 Toyota Corolla

1 - A hybrid engine

Marking a first for the Corolla is the introduction of a hybrid engine in the 2020 model.  Now you can enjoy the comfort and convenience of the Corolla while enjoying the superior gas mileage that comes from Toyota's no-charging, hybrid-electric engine technology.  You get a 1.8 liter, 4-cylinder engine rated at 4.5L / 100km, providing a responsive 121hp.

2 - Need more power?  Go for the 2-liter engine.

Want more “oomph” when you're on the go?  The SE 6M and SE CVT come with a bigger, more powerful 2-liter engine.  This brings you 169 horsepower, guaranteeing you all the power you want when you're cruising down the highway.   Yet, you can still enjoy up to 8.2MPG in the city - keeping your gasoline bills lower.

3 - Toyota keeps you safe

The Corolla is at the head of the pack when it comes to automatic safety features - courtesy of Toyota Safety Sense 2.0.  This includes pedestrian detection, forward collision warnings, adaptive braking and cruise control, lane departure warnings, automatic high beams, and more.  It also comes standard with a rearview camera.  No matter who's on board, you can be sure they're safe when they're in a 2020 Corolla.

4 - Direct Shift CVT brings you the best of both worlds

Constant variable transmissions (CVTs) are a great way to increase fuel efficiency, and the Direct Shift CVT found in the 2020 Corolla is truly innovative. Unlike a regular CVT, which can feel a bit sluggish and unresponsive, the 2020 Corolla combines smooth performance with a real sense of power and control. A few minutes behind the wheel, and you’ll feel the difference.

5 - Still at a price that's nice

One of the reasons the Corolla has remained so popular is its near-perfect balance of price vs performance.  This hasn't changed a bit in 2020.  You can still drive a brand-new 2020 Toyota Corolla off the lot for just over $20,000, making it a great value no matter your budget.
