What the Critics Say

It’s a vehicle that’s designed to be ruthlessly efficient and extremely accessible to working-class people. You could pile miles on one of these and drive it into the ground over a long period of time. Would I want to live with one? Happily. The Corolla Hybrid is a great car.” — Roadshow by CNET
It’s almost impossible to argue, ethically, against the 2021 Toyota Corolla Hybrid. An affordable, comfortable sedan with the king of reliability behind it, a bulletproof hybrid drivetrain steadily improved since its introduction two decades ago, and a fuel-economy rating of 52 mpg combined, all for a $23,400 base price? Sold.” — Business Insider

What’s New for 2021

After its successful launch last year, the Toyota Corolla Hybrid is back for 2021 to build on its proven formula with only minor updates. First, all Corolla Hybrid variants now come standard with Android Auto smartphone integration for enhanced connectivity. Additionally, drivers can now select optional blind-spot monitoring along with rear cross-traffic alert for greater confidence behind the wheel of the Corolla Hybrid.
