2022 Toyota Corolla

2022 Corolla Photos
The Toyota Corolla is an enormously popular compact sedan or hatchback that's available as a hybrid, too. It comes only with front-wheel drive.

Confusingly, Toyota now sells a Corolla Cross utility vehicle, which we review separately.

For 2022, the Corolla sedan and hatchback remain unchanged. The standard engine is a 1.8-liter inline-4 making 139 horsepower and teamed with a CVT. Upper models use a 169-hp 2.0-liter 4-cylinder with more punch and slightly better gas mileage. A 6-speed manual transmission is available but it erases that mileage advantage.

The Hybrid uses a 121-hp powerplant with a 4-cylinder engine, electric motor, and battery pack. Acceleration is so-so, but with more than 50 miles per gallon, most people will be fine with the tradeoff.

The Corolla's handling is nice, with balanced steering and body control, although the Hybrid is less nimble because of its weight. The cabin space is good; the hatchback has a lot more cargo space but less room in the back seat. The sedan's trunk is small, even for a compact.

The 1.8-liter engine gets 32 or 33 mpg combined, while the 2.0-liter can get as much as 34 mpg. The Hybrid earns an awesome EPA rating of 53 mpg city, 52 highway, 52 combined.

The NHTSA gives the Corolla five stars overall for safety, while the IIHS gives it a Top Safety Pick award, for models with the better headlights. Automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, and active lane control are standard in every Corolla, while blind-spot monitors are optional.
