2020 Toyota Corolla Standard Engine

While the Corolla has a smaller, slightly less powerful engine, its lower price and better fuel economy make it a sensible choice with plenty of power. However, if you want more engine power and a more entertaining drive, take a look at the Corolla’s engine option:

  • 169 hp
  • 151 lb-ft of torque

While power is important, how it’s used makes a difference. For driving in Plainfield conditions, the Corolla has an all-wheel drive option, while the Sonata is only available in front-wheel drive.

Corolla vs. Sonata: Fuel Economy

With their base engines, Toyota wins when it comes to fuel economy in Wheaton, especially on the highway. Once again Toyota’s engine options come out ahead of the Hyundai, with Toyota’s well-established hybrid engine that’s available for the Corolla. The Sonata will have a hybrid option available later this year as they venture into the green market.
