Thanks to its hybrid powertrain, the 2021 Toyota Corolla Hybrid offers the same sporty performance along with even greater fuel economy—no matter how hard that is to imagine. A 1.8-litre DOHC 4-cylinder engine adds two electric motors/generators into the mix to offer up 121 horsepower along with instant access to serious torque. Combined with Toyota’s eCVT (Electronically Controlled continuously variable transmission) and it comes as no surprise that the 2021 Corolla Hybrid offers a fuel efficiency rating as low as 4.5 L/100 km. In fact, we’re talking award-winning fuel efficiency, being named the 2020 Green Car of the Year by Green Car Journal as well as the Most Fuel-Efficient Compact in its class by National Resources Canada (to name just a few of the awards the nameplate has won over the years).

Why Choose a Hybrid?
While the promise of excellent fuel economy might be enough for some, there are plenty more reasons as to why a hybrid is a smart choice—starting with its lower emissions. Add in the instant torque provided by the electric motor-components, and the 2021 Toyota Corolla Hybrid’s performance is even snappier than that of the Corolla. Unlike plug-in hybrids, the battery of the 2021 Corolla Hybrid will actually charge itself thanks to innovative technology like regenerative braking. Finally, the 2021 Corolla Hybrid was designed to require no additional maintenance than a normal, gas-powered vehicle. However, if that’s still not quite enough, you can rest assured that the accompanying 8-year (or 160,000 km) hybrid component warranty, along with the available 10-year (or 240,000 km) extended hybrid battery warranty, will ensure that your Corolla Hybrid is covered for a long, long time.
The Corolla has a long history of providing its drivers with sporty performance, smart style, and excellent efficiency. The 2021 Toyota Corolla Hybrid doesn’t stray from this formula, while adding a hybrid drivetrain that helps take this compact sedan into new territory when it comes to fuel efficiency and reduced emissions.
