New 2020 Toyota Corolla Hybrid Will Be As Efficient As The Prius

The Hybrid is just one version of the new generation of the Toyota Corolla that will deliver everything from efficiency to sporty driving.

The biggest piece of news is that the new 2020 Toyota Corolla Hybrid will be just a fuel miserly as the legendary (I guess we can say this now…) Prius which leads to many questions on our behalf.

The 2019 Prius returns an impressive 4.4L/4.6L/100km (city/highway) rating with its 1.8-litre 4‑cylinder, Hybrid Synergy Drive powertrain. The same will go for the new 2020 Toyota Corolla.

Before we address the queries, it was just recently announced by Toyota that the mini Prius, the “c”, is going to be pulled from the Prius family, leaving in its wake only the original member. The 2019 Prius c starts at $22,260 while the Prius goes for $27,990. Pricing for the 2020 Corolla Hybrid is not known be we suspect it will hover somewhere in the Prius’ range depending on packaging.

And this leads to our questioning. As we said, the Prius is legendary, but the Corolla is as solid and famous as the Pyramids of Giza. Unlike the massive four-sided triangles, the Prius has never aged quite as gracefully – we’re trying to say it’s not pretty.

The Corolla, on the other hand, although not a show-stopper, is far more conventional. Is there room for both in the line-up? Is this why Toyota’s decided to introduce an AWD-e Prius version just ahead of the Corolla Hybrid?

Obviously, the Prius has a cult-following however the Corolla is a globally embraced religion.
