The 2020 Corolla Hybrid uses the same powertrain as the current Prius, which is 1.8-litre inline four-cylinder engine that works with two motors to put out a total system output of 121 horsepower. With this power, this eco-friendly sedan boasts a fuel-efficiency rating of 4.4 L/100 km in the city and 4.5 L/100 km on the highway.
Along with these better fuel-efficiency numbers, this
all-new Toyota will also come standard with an eight-inch display, heated front
seats, Toyota Connected Services, a Blind Spot Monitor, and the Toyota Safety
Sense™ 2.0 package.
