The Toyota Corolla is one of America’s most beloved sedans. In 2019, J.D. Power listed the Toyota Corolla as number two in its list of 10 Most Popular Small Cars. There is much to like about this vehicle. Let’s examine some of these attributes that make it such a hot seller.
Toyota Corolla MPG
The 2020 Toyota Corolla mpg is rated at 31 mpg in the city and up to 40 mpg in the highway. This is thanks in part to the vehicle’s 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine with a continuous-variable transmission. This transmission uses a first gear to get the vehicle moving and then shifts to a CVT for maintaining velocity. The inclusion of paddle shifters also enables the driver to select between 10 simulated speeds. The 2020 model got a number two placement in the Green Car Report list of Five Compat Cars with the Best Gas Mileage.
What’s New for 2020?
A few new additions have been incorporated for the 2020 model. Apple CarPlay® now comes standard. There are also a few safety technology implementations that come standard like traffic sign recognition and lane tracing assist. A 2.0-liter engine is also now optional.
The 2020 Toyota Corolla moves to a new TNGA platform, which will soon be the standard platform across all Toyota models. The new platform utilizes Active Cornering Assist to minimize understeer. It also contains a multilink rear suspension, a lower center of gravity, and a 60% increase in body rigidity. The end result is more robust control especially during tight turns.
