2020 Corolla Performance
The 2020 Corolla performance is truly something to get excited about. The new Toyota Corolla features two impressive powertrains, helmed by these two engines:
- 1.8L I-4: 139 horsepower, 126 lb-ft of torque
- 2.0L I-4: 169 horsepower, 151 lb-ft of torque
The 1.8L engine comes paired with a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) with intelligence and Shift Mode. This lets you change gears on-command when you want a more active performance form your Corolla.
The 2.0L engine comes with the Dynamic-Shift CVT with physical First-launch gear. This aims to improve efficiency and performance by helping you responsively take off from the starting line.
The 2.0L engine can also pair with the 6-speed Intelligent Manual Transmission (iMT). The iMT comes with intelligent rev-matching, which reduces transmission shock with downshifting.
To pump up the athleticism even more, certain CVT powertrains include a Sport Mode that provides even smoother acceleration and more responsive steering to create an especially dynamic drive.
2020 Corolla Efficiency
The 2020 Corolla features impressive efficiency estimates from the EPA. In fact, based on your configuration, it can get up to an EPA-estimated 31 MPG city and 40 MPG highway.1 This is possible with the 2.0L engine and the Dynamic-Shift CVT.
When paired with the iMT, the 2.0L engine can get an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 29 MPG city and 36 MPG highway.1
The 1.8L engine, on the other hand, can get up to an EPA-estimated efficiency of 30 MPG city and 38 MPG highway.1
2020 Corolla Features: Safety Tech
One of our favorite 2020 Corolla features is the Toyota Safety Sense™ 2.0 (TSS 2.0) suite of driver-assist systems. This collection of smart safety features comes standard and helps you be more aware of your surroundings and mitigate potential collisions.
The TSS 2.0 suite includes systems like:
- Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist
- Auto High Beams
- Full-Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control
It also comes with the Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection and low-light pedestrian detection and daytime bicyclist detection. This uses sensors to scan ahead for any potential hazards on the road ahead, including other vehicles, pedestrians, and bicycles. If detected, it’ll provide an alert to slow down or stop.
Another Toyota Corolla safety feature we like is Road Sign Assist. This monitors the traffic signs along your route, including speed limits, stop signs, do not enter signs, and yield signs. It then displays them in the information center in the driver dashboard so that you can stay informed at all times.
