2020 Toyota Corolla Review

New 2020 Toyota Corolla at Toyota of Brookfield

With more than 46 million Toyota Corollas sold since 1966, you can be certain it is one of the most popular and revered vehicles on the road today. Available at Toyota of Brookfield, WI, it has been re-imagined and reconfigured as the 2020 Toyota Corolla.

Now in its twelfth-generation, the new 2020 Toyota Corolla is available as a smart hatchback and a sedan with a buyer's choice of Gasoline or Hybrid powertrains. All three are derived from the Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) that has allowed the company to build a vehicle with a new approach to engineering, design, assembly and materials. Now there really is a Toyota Corolla for everyone.

The advanced properties of the new TNGA platform has allowed Toyota engineers and designers to elevate the new Toyota Corolla's focus on comfort and refinement, while at the same time imbuing it with a sense of feistiness, too.

Through the new platform, the Corolla now features an available engine that makes more power than before yet delivers better fuel economy. Now more agile but smoother and quieter, there is also a sense of higher quality and higher safety through the Toyota Safety Sense 2.0 suite of active safety systems which are now standard on every Corolla.

New Toyota Corolla Exterior & Dimensions

With the new Toyota Corolla, we have a sedan that is lower, leaner, tauter and tighter than ever before. Fenders flare, and feature generous curves over the top, along with sculpted points of interest throughout.

By the numbers, the new Toyota Corolla maintains the dimensions of some past Toyota sedans, but continues on to create a new standard of vehicle. With an overall length of 182.3 inches and a wheelbase of 106.3 inches it actually comes up an inch or two shorter, but inside, it offers a more efficient use of space inside, giving driver and passengers a more comfortable environment to cruise in.

A new, bolder front fascia is here, whose details vary according to the particular trim level you have selected. Currently the 2020 Corolla is available in LE, LE Hybrid, SE, XLE and XSE models. While the SE and XSE are the sportiest of the bunch with a body-colored front spoiler and aero stabilizing fins, slim J-shaped Bi-Beam LED headlamps wrap deeply into the front fenders giving the vehicle a steely stare. The available Adaptive Front-Lighting System (AFS) provides illumination as you go around turns, following the direction of the steering wheel. Depending on the Corolla's trim level, your new Corolla may sport 15- 16- or 18-inch wheels.

2020 Corolla Interior

Equal parts sporty, elegant, comfortable and durable, the new Toyota Corolla at Toyota of Brookfield is all of those, plus a value leader for many years to come. You already know the Corolla holds it value. What you didn't know is that the Corolla has lowered the hip point to allow occupants to sit lower while at the same time being able to lower the roof line for better aerodynamics. The added swoopiness has increased interior room, as well.

In the center of the instrument panel within easy view of both front seat occupants, sits a high-resolution 8-inch multimedia touchscreen display on all grades except the L level which receives a 7-inch version. This center screen display provides access to vehicle settings, audio controls, navigation and audio multimedia.



A new minimalist set of controls help to simplify the overall look and feel of the cockpit, from tightened gaps to elimination of unnecessary lettering on buttons and switchgear. This adds up to a more sophisticated, high-class environment. The rear seat is roomy, offering good head and leg room, but there's also something it doesn't have: Noise. Toyota engineers were tasked with making the new Corolla's interior quieter than ever before, minimizing noise, vibrations and harshness (NVH) through the use of advance insulation materials like sealants, foams and Thinsulate sound deadening material.

New Corolla Engine & Performance

The new Toyota Corolla gets its power from a variety of engines. L, LE and XLE trim levels will use the 139-horsepower 1.8-liter engine that is a carry-over from the previous Corolla, but with more power and better fuel efficiency. SE and XSE models will be motivated by the larger, 2.0-liter Dynamic Force 4-cylinder engine that produces 169 horsepower and 151 lb-ft of torque. With Direct and Port Injection systems and a choice of continuously variable transmissions (CVT) or six-speed manual transmissions (SE and XSE), the 2.0-liter engine is capable of an EPA estimated 31 mpg city/ 40 mpg highway / 34 mpg combined fuel economy.

The new Toyota Corolla Hybrid utilizes a 1.8-liter four-cylinder Atkinson-cycle gasoline engine with two electric motor/generators and a planetary CVT transmission. The combined system output of 121 horsepower yields responsive performance.
