Fuel Economy

The largest and most obvious difference between the 2020 Toyota Corolla and 2020 Toyota Corolla Hybrid is fuel economy. The 2020 Corolla Hybrid clearly has the advantage here with an EPA-estimated fuel rating of 53 city mpg and 52 highway mpg. In comparison, the traditional gas-powered 2020 Corolla offers drivers an EPA-estimated fuel rating of 31 city mpg and 38 highway mpg. for drivers who put a lot of miles under their tires, the difference in fuel usage is significant and could make quite a big difference in the overall price paid at the fuel pump over time.

Fewer Options For Hybrid Trim

While the 2020 Corolla Hybrid shines when it comes to fuel economy, drivers will notice that the hybrid model is available on only one trim level. That means that shoppers will have far less control over the pricing and features they are getting and will have far fewer opportunities for customization. Though, the 2020 Corolla Hybrid is pretty well equipped and comes with a lot of the most popular amenities including Apple CarPlay and Toyota Safety Sense 2.0.

When it comes down to making a final choice, drivers will need to prioritize fuel usage or customization. If the 2020 Corolla Hybrid falls in line with budget and feature expectations then its a solid choice. If it doesn’t, some drivers may want to stick with the 2020 Corolla to get exactly what they are looking for.
