2020 Toyota Corolla vs 2019 Toyota Corolla

With a complete redesign for 2020, the Toyota Corolla breathes new life with a newfound style and attitude that has us stunned. Among a long list of enhancements, the lineup grows to include the first-ever Corolla Hybrid. See what other exciting updates Toyota packs into the twelfth-generation with this comparison of the 2020 Toyota Corolla and the 2019 Toyota Corolla.

While it’s on the same 106.3-inch wheelbase as before, the reengineered 2020 Toyota Corolla is lighter and lower than its 2019 predecessor. The athletic silhouette is complemented by a bold front fascia and a dynamic grille design with J-shaped bi-beam LED headlights.

What’s New in the 2020 Toyota Corolla? 

Toyota set out to achieve better fuel efficiency and power ratings with the 2020 Corolla. As you can see, that mission was a success. On the 2019 Toyota Corolla, a standard 1.8-liter 4-cylinder brought 132 horsepower and 128 lb-ft of torque. The all-new Corolla kicks off the twelfth generation with a new optional 2.0-liter direct injection 4-cylinder engine, vaulting max power to 169 horsepower and 151 lb-ft of torque. The standard 1.8-liter 4-cylinder engine also gets fine-tuned to put out 139 horsepower, plus enhanced fuel ratings.

With the Corolla’s lower profile, Toyota was able to shift the driver’s hip point down and back, making the seating position more comfortable. A set of redesigned seats also bring enhanced comfort with new headrests and seatback shapes.

The Corolla is no stranger to advanced tech. The 2020 model features a 4.2-inch multi-information display plus an 8-inch touchscreen Entune 3.0 multimedia system on all models beyond the base level. Drivers can also opt for a 7-inch MID and an 800-watt JBL audio system. The new Toyota Safety Sense 2.0 package throws in standard Road Sign Assist and Lane Tracing Assist technology on top of the Corolla’s already-standard Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Alert, Automatic High Beams and Dynamic Radar Cruise Control.
