If you’re looking for a small sedan with big attitude, you’ve found a match in the 2020 Toyota Corolla. Thanks to an aggressive and fashion-forward redesign as well as some impressive tweaks under the hood, this compact ride is sure to announce your sporty sense of style no matter where you’re heading here around the Pittsburgh area.
Baierl Automotive put together this review to give you an inside scoop on some of the sedan’s finest qualities. Read on to see how it measures up to your aesthetic and performance specifications.
Athletic and Full of Attitude: 2020 Corolla Exterior
You’ve probably heard of the importance of “show, don’t tell” at some point in your life. The 2020 Toyota Corolla was designed to do just that, allowing drivers to show off their tastes before they ever talk about them.
The Corolla redesign offers a sleeker, more streamlined body made with athleticism in mind. It announces its presence first with an available honeycomb mesh grille. This blends perfectly into the lower and wider stance of the vehicle, keeping you a bit closer to the road.
The standard LED headlights bracketing the grille are long and thin near the nose of the car, hooking sharply at the ends to give your fascia a winged look. With bright LEDs lighting the path, you’ll never be left in the dark.
More Powerful Performance
Even compact cars can pack a noticeable punch. The Corolla aims to do just that by boosting engine power to match the heightened sportiness of the exterior.
Offered in this sedan is a 2.0L Dynamic Force 4-cylinder engine. This available powertrain is capable of producing 169 horsepower for a welcomed kick each time you step on the accelerator.
You’ll find that engine response is quicker than ever before thanks to the Dynamic Shift-Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT). CVTs are known for having shorter and more efficient gear ratios to begin with, but when combined with a traditional fixed first gear, you cut out even more lag. The power and response are there, exactly when you need them.
Safer and Smarter
This sedan isn’t just fashion-forward—it’s safety-forward, too. To ensure drivers are protected no matter the road conditions, the 2020 Corolla comes standard with Toyota Safety Sense™ 2.0 (TSS 2.0).
TSS 2.0 is comprised of a wide network of sensors and small cameras. It can send you warnings or even apply mild corrective steering to keep you safely on your intended path and out of trouble.
Some standout features in TSS 2.0 include Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist and Road Edge Detection. Let’s say you begin to veer out of your lane, even just slightly, in a moment of distraction. This feature will send you a visual warning to let you know you’re off course, but it will also adjust your steering to get you back in place.
With TSS 2.0 in the 2020 Corolla, you can rest assured your sedan is keeping an eye out for you.
Take the Corolla for a Spin
With its advanced technology array and uniquely sporty exterior accents, the 2020 Toyota Corolla has a fun vibe, even when it’s just in writing. Why not see that fun come to life with a firsthand experience?
