The 2019 Toyota Corolla lineup has six configurations or trim levels that offer differing levels of performance and amenities to help car shoppers find a model that is tailored just for them. While this gives drivers a lot of customization options, it can also be a little confusing when trying to sort through what each trim delivers. To aid in the research process, we are comparing the 2019 Toyota Corolla LE and LE Eco trim levels so drivers can have a good idea of what each model offers once they move into the test drive and purchase process at their local Toyota dealership.

The largest difference between the 2019 Toyota Corolla LE and 2019 Toyota Corolla LE Eco is fuel economy due to a slight shift in standard engines. Both models come standard with a 1.8-liter four-cylinder DOHC engine. The engine on the LE trim is paired with dual variable valve timing and offers 132 horsepower and a combined fuel rating of 32 miles per gallon. The LE Eco engine is paired with valvematic technology that boosts the horsepower to 140 and offers a combined fuel rating of 34 miles per gallon.
While a two-point difference in combined MPG doesn’t seem like a whole lot, it can make a serious difference at the pump, especially if you do a lot of driving on the highway where the LE Eco engine is most efficient. The 2019 Corolla LE Eco also has an available ECO Mode that can tailor driving performance and other vehicle functions like air conditioning to run with optimal fuel efficiency in mind.
If fuel efficiency is a concern for you and you plan to put a lot of miles under your tires, we think the LE Eco trim is the right way to go. The starting MSRP on the 2019 Corolla LE Eco is only $400 more than the LE trim which you will likely recoup at the gas station over time.
