Toyota engineers have upgraded the automaker’s infotainment system to be compatible with Apple CarPlay™ and Amazon Alexa, with future models likely adding Android Auto™ compatibility. To be fair, the 2019 Honda Civic offers a similar set of technological compatibility, but these features are only found on select trim grades. Toyota has made its commitment to connectivity standard equipment across the board. Another standard piece of equipment that is found in the 2020 Corolla and not in the 2019 Civic is a high-speed 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot. Up to five devices can be connected to the mobile internet connection in the all-new Corolla.

Performance Specs

In addition to improving the technology profile of the 2020 Toyota Corolla, the automaker has also introduced a new engine to the mix. SE and XSE versions of the 2020 Corolla will have a naturally aspirated 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine which can be attached to a continuously variable or six-speed manual transmission. Either choice will allow these trims of the new Corolla to produce 169 horsepower and 151 pound-feet of torque. The rest of the 2020 Corolla lineup will use a 1.8-liter, four-cylinder engine mated to the CVT. This powertrain will produce 139 horsepower and 126 horsepower. Honda customers will have a couple of engine options of their own to consider. Some do not provide as much performance as what is available with the 2020 Corolla. Additionally, the 2019 Civic’s fuel economy scores aren’t much different than what can be recorded by the 2020 Toyota Corolla.
