2020 Toyota Corolla Fuel Economy

In the new decade, there is greater concern regarding fuel economy than ever before. The Toyota Corolla has long been one of the most efficient vehicles out there, but how efficient is it now that it has taken on a redesign for 2020? The answer is now a little more complicated than in the past as well since the 2020 model year brings with it the first-ever hybrid Toyota Corolla. Read on to learn about the fuel efficiency of these vehicles.

2020 Toyota Corolla Fuel Efficiency

Starting off with the traditional gasoline-powered 1.8L inline 4-cylinder engine Toyota Corolla L with a continuously variable transmission (CVT), the sedan gets great gas mileage. Even in the city, where fuel can’t stretch quite as far, the Corolla averages an EPA estimated 30 miles per gallon. On the highway, this number reaches up to 38, making for a generous 33 MPG combined. Higher trim levels with the same engine and transmission relate to slightly lower fuel efficiency.

However, there is a 2020 Toyota Corolla with a bigger engine. If you get any of the trim levels equipped with the 2.0L inline 4-cylinder engine and the CVT, fuel efficiency goes up by 1 on the city and combined MPG estimations, and up 2 on the highway. That same engine with the manual transmission option reduces the estimates to 29 MPG city, 36 MPG highway, and 32 MPG combined.

2020 Toyota Corolla Hybrid Fuel Efficiency

Of course, the Corolla hybrid sips gas much better than any version of the non-hybrid Corolla. The Hybrid LE trim reaches an estimated 53 MPG in the city. If you aren’t familiar with hybrids, they usually work the opposite way regular gasoline engines do, by working slightly more efficiently on city roads than on highways. The Hybrid Corolla gets an EPA estimated 52 MPG on both the highway and mixed driving.
