New AWD for Hybrid, New Engine for Gas LE Trim

The new AWD version of the Corolla Hybrid gains an electric motor that drives the rear wheels. The motor powers the rear wheels when starting off from a stop, and it also works when front wheel slip is detected. Toyota did not provide estimated gas mileage figures for the AWD Corolla Hybrid, but EPA estimates for the front-drive 2022 Corolla Hybrid are 53/52/52 mpg city/highway/combined.

Toyota also says the hybrid system’s drive motor and lithium-ion battery pack have been updated and that the hybrid system is more powerful than before. The 2022 Corolla Hybrid is rated at 121 hp, and Toyota says horsepower figures for the 2023 Corolla Hybrid will be available closer to its on-sale date later this year.

Toyota has also replaced the gas-only Corolla LE’s 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine with the 169-hp, 2.0-liter four-cylinder that powers other trim levels. The 2.0-liter engine makes 30 hp more than the outgoing four-cylinder but gets slightly better gas mileage: 31/40/34 mpg, according to Toyota’s estimates.

Updated Tech and Safety Features

The 2023 Corolla has a new standard 8-inch touchscreen multimedia system that includes dual Bluetooth phone pairing, satellite radio (subscription required after three-month trial) and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity. The system also supports voice commands and over-the-air updates for things like map data.

I needed a smaller car and Mark and Dan were very helpful. I told them what I can afford and they worked with me to get me a car. I love my new Toyota Corolla. I went to a few other dealers but no one could match what Toyota offered me. Thank You.
