Redesign 2019

The 2020 Corolla sedan is built on the Toyota New Global Architecture, which underpins most of the brand's car lineup. The instrument panel, cowl, hood and beltline height are lower than on the previous version to increase visibility and create a more open feel in the cabin, Toyota says. The L, LE and XLE trims carry over the 1.8-liter engine from the previous generation but are tuned for more horsepower and fuel efficiency. The XSE and SE grades get a new 2.0-liter direct-injection inline four.

Addition 2019

The redesigned Corolla is adding a hybrid variant, a first for the compact sedan, for the 2020 model year. Toyota says that under the skin, the Corolla Hybrid is almost identical to a Prius. The hybrid system combines a 1.8-liter four-cylinder gas engine with two motors through an electronically controlled planetary-type continuously variable transmission transaxle.
