The 2021 Toyota Corolla Hybrid vs the Toyota Corolla


Which Model is Right For You?

Rivertown Toyota, your preferred Toyota dealer in Columbus, GA, is known for offering an impressive collection of premium sedans, trucks, and SUVs. With the launch of the first-ever 2021 Toyota Corolla Hybrid, our customers are asking about the difference between the trims and the hybrid car.

Weighing Performance Options

There’s no doubt that car buyers have plenty of solid options when purchasing this premium sedan. The standard 2021 Corolla is available with six trims and just one LE trim for the 2021 Hybrid.

The primary difference between these two sedans is power. The Hybrid is powered by a 1.8-L electric motor with impeccable fuel efficiency. This vehicle features an EPA estimated 53 MPG on the highway and 52 MPG in the city.

By comparison, the six trims of this luxury sedan offer impressive fuel economy when compared to other gasoline-powered sedans. The standard trim averages 30 MPG in the city and 38 MPG on the highway. The six trims of this sporty sedan are powered by a 1.8L 4-cylinder engine on the base trim.

Beginning with the XSE trim, you gain the power of a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine. Each trim of the 2021 Corolla is available with front-wheel drive, power-assisted ventilated 10.8” front disc brakes, and electric power steering.

Innovative, High-End Tech is the Standard

It doesn’t matter if you choose the 2021 Toyota Hybrid or one of the six trims of the Corolla, you get outstanding technology. All trims of the Corolla and the hybrid offer hands-free technology with an 8” touchscreen infotainment system. Remotely Connect to your vehicle’s data, fuel efficiency, and fuel level with the Toyota app for all models.

Another high-tech standard feature is Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto. This technology syncs your smartphone’s apps, contacts, maps, and music. Use voice commands to launch an audiobook, stream from your music apps or get turn-by-turn navigation.

Feel Safe in Any Trim of the 2021 Corolla

Driving a Toyota gives drivers more standard safety features than ever before. This extends to both the Corolla and the hybrid. All sedans are equipped with the Toyota Safety Sense 2.0 suite that includes premium driver assistance technologies for this model year.

Enjoy the peace of mind that stems from the pre-collision system with pedestrian detection that automatically applies the brakes when a potential collision is detected. The suite also includes road sign assist and traffic sign recognition features, as well as lane departure warnings and lane-keeping assist.

You get much more than you pay for when opting for the 2021 Corolla Hybrid or the six trims of the 2021 Corolla. Learn more at our Toyota dealer in Columbus, GA.
