This is the new 2020 Toyota Corolla Hybrid

Published onNovember 30 2018

Toyota took advantage of the Los Angeles Auto Show to unveil the first Toyota Corolla Hybrid to make its way to North America. The Hybrid version accompanies the latest generation of the Toyota Corolla, the 2020 model, which was unveiled a few weeks ago.

With its 1.8-liter Atkinson four-cylinder engine coupled with an electric motor and a nickel-metal-hydride battery, the Corolla Hybrid will deliver 121 horsepower to the front wheels with an average fuel consumption rating of less than 5.0 liters to 100 kilometers.

It is built on Toyota's new TNGA platform and also features the new Entune 3.0 system. It will enter North America in March 2019. The price of the 2020 Toyota Corolla Hybrid is not yet known but is expected to be under $ 30,000.

It will be the only compact sedan in its class to be offered in a hybrid version.

Finally, the 2020 Corolla Hybrid will get the Toyota Safety Sense 2.0 safety system as standard equipment. Here is a summary of the technologies included in the TSS 2.0 system.

PCS (Pre-Collision System): Is designed to automatically activate the brakes to help avoid a collision or mitigate the impact force. PCS is able to detect a vehicle or pedestrian in day and low-light conditions, as well as a bicycle during daylight.

Full-Speed DRCC (Dynamic Radar Cruise Control): Designed for highway use, designed to maintain a set vehicle-to-vehicle distance and is also capable of low-speed following up to speeds of about 24 mph. The Corolla can stop when the vehicle ahead comes to a stop, maintaining an appropriate distance to it.

LDA (Lane Departure Alert) w/ Steering Assist: Designed to give the driver audible and visual warnings and, if necessary, provides steering assistance if it detects the possibility of leaving the driving lane. It also detects excess weaving within the driving lane that might indicate driver distraction, inattention or drowsiness.

LTA (Lane Tracing Assist): LTA is enabled when LDA and DRCC are both on and active. LTA employs a lane centering function that will make constant steering inputs to help the driver keep the vehicle in its lane. LTA is designed for uses on relatively straight highways to preemptively avoid unwanted lane departures and reduce driver fatigue.

AHB (Automatic High Beam): When enabled, detects the headlights of oncoming vehicles and taillights of preceding vehicles and automatically switches between high and low beams as appropriate.
