The Hybrid LE trim of the 2020 Corolla is the most efficient choice in the lineup, and it offers enough power to easily handle your commutes around Monterey and Aptos as well. The fact that its 1.8L four-cylinder engine produces up to 121 hp and 105 lb-ft of torque makes its combined mpg rating of 52 mpg** all the more impressive. It also gives you the choice of how you want to use that power thanks to EV/ECO/Power driving modes.

2020 Corolla Efficiency Highlights

The 2020 Corolla’s efficiency is about more than just its engine — it’s a design philosophy that’s woven into every aspect of the vehicle, including:

  • Design: A great deal of effort and careful wind-tunnel testing went into making sure that the new Corolla maximizes its aerodynamic potential.
  • Variable Valve Timing: Most Corolla engines include this technology, which adjusts the timing of the opening and closing of engine valves, which leads to a careful balance of power output and efficiency.
  • Continuously Variable Transmission: The standard CVT features a wider range of gear ratios than a garden-variety automatic gearbox.
