2022 Toyota Corolla Hybrid
Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.
You can interpret our ratings in the following way:
5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.
4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.
3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.
2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.
1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.
2022 Toyota Corolla Hybrid Overview
Choosing Your Toyota Corolla Hybrid
The Corolla Hybrid comes in a single trim level, LE, priced from $24,675 including destination.
The Corolla Hybrid carries the same hybrid system as the brand's long-running Prius. Under the hood is a 1.8-liter four-cylinder gas engine, supplemented by an electric motor. Combined out is 121 horsepower and 105 lb-ft of torque. The Corolla Hybrid features front-wheel drive and a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT).
Efficiency remains the Corolla Hybrid's overwhelming virtue. According to the EPA, buyers can expect 53 miles per gallon city, 52 mpg highway, and 52 combined.
Passenger and Cargo Capacity
Like its gas-powered sibling, the Corolla Hybrid offers legitimate room for five, along with 13.1 cubic feet of trunk space.
The Corolla Hybrid excels here with standard adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, automatic high beams, road sign recognition, and automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection. The only major feature that's not standard is blind-spot monitoring, which is available for $500.
The infotainment system for every Corolla Hybrid consists of an eight-inch touchscreen, six speakers, two USB ports, HD and satellite radio, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.
The sole trim level for Corolla Hybrid comes with cloth seating, push-button start, automatic climate control, heated side mirrors, full LED exterior lighting, and 15-inch alloy wheels. The new Premium Interior Package ($1,525) adds SofTex leatherette upholstery, a power driver seat, heated front seats, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.
Configuring the 2022 Toyota Corolla Hybrid is blessedly simple. All you really have to do is pick the colors. The Premium Interior Package is a welcome addition since the base car is light on comfort features.
