Toyota enthusiasts have been eagerly awaiting the release of the 2020 Toyota Corolla sedan. While we can’t make that day come any faster, we can clarify what drivers have to look forward to. Here’s a general overview of the 2020 Toyota Corolla sedan’s changes concerning its design, specs, and features.
2020 Toyota Corolla Sedan Design Changes
First, let’s look at the design changes of the 2020 Toyota Corolla, in comparison to its 2019 model.
This new generation of the Toyota Corolla sedan is based on the Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA), a new way the company approaches design, engineering, and assembly. The 2020 Toyota Corolla sedan is lower and leaner as well as wider in select places. With a more compact exterior overall, this has helped create a more dynamic driver experience for its driver and passengers.
The choices of new grilles and front ends vary by trim level, providing different confident and sporty looks to fit different styles. Meanwhile, a new headlight design is consistent. Its angles are sharper and more expressive when compared to the 2019 Corolla, commanding greater attention when on the road.
In the end, Toyota’s team has dubbed this new design for the 2020 Toyota Corolla as “shooting robust”.
2020 Toyota Corolla Sedan Engine Specs and Performance Features
The L, LE, and XLE trims of the 2020 Toyota Corolla sedan will be equipped with a 1.8L inline 4 engine. This produces up to 132 horsepower and 128 lb-ft of torque.
An upgraded engine is available, however. It is present in the XSE and SE trims of the 2020 Toyota Corolla sedan. That would be 2L Dynamic-Force inline 4 engine that produces 169 horsepower and 151 lb-ft of torque.
