What's New For The 2020 Toyota Corolla?

If you're wondering what's new and exciting about the 2020 Corolla Toyota, our answer is, a lot! The Corolla has been completely redesigned from the ground up this model year. It comes with a more high-tech, luxurious, spacious, and well-equipped cabin than ever before. It also has a stunning new exterior design that, as Toyota says, takes it effortlessly into the future. For the first time, the Corolla is available in a hybrid edition in 2020. While the various trims come with their own set of features and amenities, there are also some notable changes across the board. Highlights for the 2020 Corolla include a chiseled, more angular exterior finish, more standard technology, and a host of new safety features. This year, you'll also have a choice between a manual and an automatic transmission. The Corolla also rides on a new platform this year that improves its handling and your comfort. For the first time ever, the Corolla is offered with 18-inch wheels along with the 16-inch wheels that were previously the sole standard option.

The Corolla Has Many Features Across Six Trims

There are six trim levels of the 2020 Toyota Corolla, which includes the Corolla hybrid. Even with the base trim, you'll get a number of standard amenities. This includes an Entune infotainment display screen, multiple USB charging ports, Amazon Alexa, Apple CarPlay, WiFi, and a six-speaker sound system. An AM/FM radio, MP3 player, iPod connectivity, and Bluetooth are standard features in the Corolla. The air conditioning system has also been revised this year to be more efficient. The higher-end XSE and XLE trims come with a more advanced audio system that also includes HD radio, remote start capacity, and current weather and traffic information. The range-topping sound system is an 800W JBL audio system with eight speakers. There are several engines options available in the 2020 Corolla too, which vary based on trim level. The Corolla hybrid has the same cabin layout and cargo capacity as the regular Corolla, but its seats have a signature fold-flat design and a pass-through design that makes it easier to store cargo and transport longer items like skis.
