Corolla SE: Interior
The 2020 refresh of the Corolla line brings with it an updated, more sophisticated interior. Black leatherette sport seats offer an edgier feel than other budget cars. The new, more open layout with repositioned controls and seating offers increased room for a comfortable seated experience without sacrificing excitement. SofTex® synthetic leather with premium fabric inserts further enhanced comfort and appearance, and when coupled with the smooth, clean lines and sophisticated design of the dash, you will have the feel of a far more expensive car without the cost.
Apple CarPlay, Amazon Alexa and integrated Wi-Fi and available wireless charging keeps you connected to the world and your media without compromising a safe driving experience, all controllable from an 8-in. floating dashboard touchscreen and played through six speakers. If you don’t feel like music, roll down the windows and the available moonroof to experience the wind in your face like never before.
Corolla SE: Exterior
The 2020 Toyota Corolla SE has moved away from the frumpy, no-frills appearance of past models in the new refresh. Gray Metallic sport side rocker panels stand out from the crowd. From the back, chrome dual-tip exhausts portray the power that lies inside. 18-in. alloy wheels give the SE a sporty, sophisticated look without sacrificing control. Body changes from previous years include a slightly shorter length, a wider track, a lower roof and newly-introduced multilink suspension allow for more control and better aerodynamics than the past. The new and improved design offers an aggressive appearance without sacrificing the stable driving experience that is perfect for new drivers.
Corolla SE: Performance
Under the hood, the 2020 refresh has brought with it more power, improved handling, and increased fuel efficiency. Sporting a new 2-liter, 4-cylinder engine with 169 horsepower and 151 lb.-ft. of torque powers, more power is available without the cost. The Dynamic Shift-CVT automatic offers a marriage of the quick response of a fixed First gear with the efficiency of Continuously Variable Transmissions, letting you enjoy the sporty feel without having the shift yourself. For those seeking more hands-on control, another choice is the 6-speed Intelligent Manual Transmission, with strong acceleration at the low end and optimized fuel efficiency at high speeds, giving you the control needed to fully experience this daring new engine design.
