Performance Specs, Fuel Economy and Connectivity 

Both Toyota and Mitsubishi make a single engine and a couple of transmission choices available for their respective hatchbacks. The 2020 Toyota Corolla Hatchback has a naturally aspirated 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine under the hood that will produce 168 horsepower and 151 pound-feet of torque. SE and XSE models can be equipped with either a six-speed manual or a continuously variable transmission. People who are interested in taking the 2020 Mitsubishi Mirage home with them will have a 1.2-liter, three-cylinder engine that will be mated to either a five-speed manual or a CVT. The 2020 Mirage will only produce up to 78 horsepower and 74 pound-feet of torque.  

Conventional wisdom would say that a vehicle with higher performance scores must produce lower fuel economy scores. A 2020 Corolla Hatchback with the manual transmission will record up to 28 miles per gallon in the city and 37 miles per gallon on the highway. Colonial Toyota customers choosing a version with the CVT can expect at least 30 mpg in the city and up to 41 mpg on the highway – depending on trim grade. The 2020 Mirage with either of its transmission will only post fuel economy scores that are only a few points better than the 2020 Corolla Hatchback, despite making less than half the amount of horsepower. 

Every 2020 Toyota Corolla Hatchback is outfitted with a smartphone-compatible infotainment system that offer access to both the Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™. A 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot is also available. Only upper trim grades of the 2020 Mirage offer smartphone integration and an internet connection is not an available option.
