One of the reasons MPG ratings are so important is because they provide you with an idea of how often you’ll need to stop for gas during your usual commutes. The higher the MPG rating, the more fuel-efficient your vehicle is.
With the Corolla, you’ll get an EPA-estimated 31 MPG city and 40 MPG highway rating.1
The most efficient trim in the lineup, however, is the Corolla Hybrid LE, which delivers an EPA-estimated 53 MPG city, 52 MPG highway, and 52 MPG combined rating. 1
The Hybrid LE trim comes equipped with a 11.4-gallon fuel tank, while the other trim levels have a 13.2-gallon fuel tank.
Now that you know just how fuel efficient this sedan is, it’s time to dive into the engine options. There are three different ones available to you.
The standard 1.8-liter 4-cylinder with Valvematic technology puts out 139 horsepower and 126 lb-ft of torque. It’s also paired with the Continuously Variable Transmission for a smooth and easy-to-handle ride.
For a bit more oomph, the available 2.0-liter 4-cylinder with Dual Variable Valve Timing with intelligence delivers 169 horsepower and 151 lb-ft of torque. This engine is typically paired with the available Dynamic-Shift Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT), which has a sporty feel to it, and combines the immediate response of traditional fixed first gear with the efficiency of a CVT.
In the Hybrid LE, you’ll get the 1.8-liter 4-cylinder with Variable Valve Timing with intelligence, which delivers 121 horsepower and 105 lb-ft of torque. With this engine, you’ll get the Electronically controlled Continuously Variable Transmission (ECVT), which helps with advanced fuel efficiency.
