Over the past decade, many Toyota models have seen new hybrid versions. This time, it’s Corolla’s turn to join the movement. If you’re committed to the green transition and looking for an affordable hybrid car, the 2020 Corolla Hybrid is the perfect choice. Between its affordable price for all budgets and its standard Corolla features, it offers a good compromise between the electric car and gas car.
Vert La Rive-Nord in Saint-Jérôme and Saint-Eustache presents the Corolla Hybrid by highlighting what makes it a plug-in hybrid vehicle of choice.
The Corolla Hybrid: A Car with a Modern Taste
The Corolla is the world’s best-selling sedan, and its popularity relies on reasons obvious to every driver who has tried it. Reliability and excellent handling are among the most common reasons given for praising the Japanese car. Toyota knows this, which is why it has added a hybrid option to the Corolla lineup, even though the Prius is already on the market. The Corolla version, in addition to being less expensive than the Prius, also offers a more classic style, ideal for those who want to be modern without being flashy. Not to be overlooked: the gearshift lever is the same as the one on the classic Corolla, rather than the smaller one found on the Prius, which is less appreciated by some drivers.
What propels the sedan with CVT automatic transmission is a 1.8 L 4-cylinder engine combined with two electric motors, offering 121 horsepower. The main asset of this model is, of course, its impressive fuel economy, with an estimated average combined fuel consumption of 4.5 L/100 km. What’s more, it has a considerable range of 1,111 km on the road, which means you won’t have to fill up your tank much. An EV driving mode is also available, allowing the driver to run only the electric motor when driving at lower speeds.
Comfort is another watchword of this new generation, and the Corolla Hybrid warms up faster than its rivals in the same category. Stay warm in the winter, with heated front seats as standard, and even heated rear seats with the Premium package. This package also includes leather seats, a heated steering wheel and an 8-way electrically adjustable driver’s seat for added comfort and luxury. The appearance of the interior is also enhanced, with a black interior featuring contrasting white stitching. Moreover, while many electric or hybrid vehicles offer reduced rear-seat space, this is not the case with the Corolla, thanks to the strategic positioning of its battery.
As always at Toyota, no concessions are made in terms of passenger safety, thanks to state-of-the-art features. The Toyota Safety Sense package comes standard, including the pre-crash system with cyclist and pedestrian detection. You’ll also benefit from adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning and automatic emergency braking.
Of course, the infotainment system isn’t left out, with a 7-inch Entune 3.0 touch screen and Apple CarPlay and Bluetooth compatibility. By opting for the Premium package, the car is even equipped with wireless charging for cell phones as well as ambient lighting. In addition to its usual functions, the hybrid’s display also shows information about the drive system and battery charging.
