Corolla Driving Modes and Efficiency Features

Drivers who opt for the 2020 Toyota Corolla Hybrid will be able to switch between ECO, Power, and Electric Vehicle (EV) driving modes with the press of a button, so you can maximize your fuel economy or pull out all the stops when the mood strikes. Those who opt for the SE (“Sport Edition”) or XSE trim levels will be able to alternate between Normal and Sport modes, instead.

Exploring this vehicle’s powertrain and drivetrain, you’ll encounter tons of efficiency-boosting technologies, like variable valve timing with intelligence. However, we’d be remiss if we didn’t make mention of the new 2020 Toyota Corolla exterior, which has undergone hundreds of hours of wind-tunnel testing. Its sleek lines and sculpted curves are just as functional as they are eye-catching.

Choosing the Right 2020 Corolla

If you’ve been hunting for the perfect new Toyota Corolla for sale in Salem, you’ve already realized that you have plenty of compelling options. Which one is the right choice for your daily drives?

  • If you’re dead set on driving a non-hybrid Corolla, we think the SE trim level is a great choice. The SE CVT is the most efficient non-hybrid trim, while the SE 6MT lets you enjoy a more engaging, hands-on drive.
  • If you’re really interested in saving money at the pump, the Corolla Hybrid LE is difficult to overlook. Its fuel economy leaves nothing to be desired, and since it’s just $1,000 more expensive than the SE CVT, it’s an affordable choice for most drivers.
