Change of generation of the Toyota Corolla is a significant event in itself. The most popular model in the world thereunto has got a hybrid version for the first time. It is available for order in the USA at a very attractive price.
The 2020 Toyota Corolla Hybrid’s base price in the US car market is $22,950. The model got the same 121-hp hybrid powertrain, which is already fitted on the latest-generation Toyota Prius. The Electronically Controlled Continuously Variable Transmission is used.
The claimed fuel consumption is an average of 52 mpg. For comparison: the gasoline Corolla features about 32 mpg. If efficiency figures are real, $22,950 is quite a pleasant price.
We should add, that the Corolla Hybrid has a serious rival in the American market – a promising Honda Insight which costs from $22,930. As you can see, the prices are almost equal.
Moreover, the Toyota Corolla Hybrid and the Honda Insight are nearly same-sized. They have rather similar fuel consumption. However, the Honda’s hybrid powertrain is 30 hp more powerful.
Truly, we can evaluate and compare the both models only in theory, since both have just entered the market. Well, time will tell.
In addition to the 2020 Toyota Corolla Hybrid, the 2020 Corolla Sedan is on sale in the U.S. (from $19,500),as well as the 2019 Corolla Hatchback (from $19,990).
