Toyota Corolla Engine Specs

Drivetrain and Transmission

Front-wheel drive is standard on all trims of the Toyota Corolla, including the hybrid engine option. The transmissions across the engine options differ slightly, though.

The 2.0L 4-cylinder engine is paired with a standard Dynamic-Shift Continuously Variable Transmission, which focuses on fuel economy and performance. However, if you love the feel and control of a manual transmission, this engine also has an available 6-speed manual.

If you opt for the 1.8L non-hybrid engine, it will be paired with a Continuously Variable Transmission. The hybrid engine is paired with a similar but electronic version called Electronically controlled Continuously Variable Transmission.

Toyota Corolla Fuel Economy Tips

In addition to having a vehicle with a fuel-efficient engine, there are a few things you can do to spend less time at the gas station. We have put together a few tips for driving more efficiently in your 2021 Corolla.

Some of these tips are…

  • Follow the speed limit: The faster you drive, the more gas you use. By following the speed limit, you not only drive safer, but save a bit of fuel on long trips, as well.
  • Take extra weight out of your vehicle: The more weight of random items in your car, the more gas it takes for your car to get up to speed. By taking out the extra things in your vehicle, you’ll save some gas.
  • Avoid idling: When your car idles, the engine is still running and still using gas. Turn the engine off while you wait.
  • Use cruise control: Cruise control helps your automobile maintain one steady speed. By staying at one speed, you’ll use less gas than if frequently accelerating.
