When the eleventh generation of the Toyota Corolla began in the 2014 model year, the world was a very different place. Sure, six model years may not seem like a surplus of time, but, when you really think about it, cars have come a very long in a relatively short amount of time; and this is especially true for the past few years. Of course, this trend is far from done, as the 2020 Toyota Corolla isn’t just all-new, it’s also the best one yet.
With all due respect to the 2019 model, the 2020 Corolla has several new additions and enhancements with which the outgoing model simply can’t compete. We’ve outlined a few of the most important differences between these two Corolla models in our 2020 vs 2019 Toyota Corolla comparison chart above, plus the breakdown below, so keep on reading to learn everything you need to know about the next-generation Corolla.
Changes to the Toyota Corolla in the 2020 Model Year
While there are dozens—if not hundreds—of changes to the Toyota Corolla in the 2020 model year, the ones listed in our 2020 vs 2019 Toyota Corolla comparison chart above are some of the most important. First, let’s pop the hood of the 2020 Toyota Corolla.
While the entry-level engine may be a carryover from its 2019 predecessor, it isn’t quite the same as you remember it. Rather, it offers better fuel efficiency and more horsepower. For those who want something a little different, how about an all-new engine?
Exclusively standard in all 2020 Toyota Corolla XSE and SE models, curious consumers are sure to be enamored with the brand-new 2.0-liter Dynamic-Force direct-injection inline four-cylinder engine. This all-new innovation is set to achieve better fuel efficiency and performance specs than the base engine.
Better yet, the debuting 2.0-liter engine can be equipped with a six-speed intelligent manual transmission (iMT), which is also brand-new for the 2020 production year. Those who don’t opt for the iMT will receive a standard Dynamic-Shift continuously variable transmission (CVT).
Whether you choose the iMT or the CVT, there’s no doubt that you’re going to love driving the all-new 2020 Toyota Corolla. To complement the new drivetrains of the 2020 Corolla, Toyota has added a new exterior paint color option – iridescent Celestite Grey Metallic. With it—or any of the other available paint colors—your Corolla will look just as good as you feel while driving it!
Last but not least, the automaker sculpted the all-new 2020 Corolla in the image of the innovative Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA). Simply put, this next-generation approach implemented several new advancements for the design, engineering, materials, and assembly of the 2020 Corolla.
