Under the Hood: Engine Options for the 2019 Toyota Corolla Engine

The 2019 Toyota Corolla engine is sure to impress

For decades, the Toyota Corolla has been revered for its fuel-efficient yet sporty engines. Toyota continues to push the envelope for 2019, offering two efficient and peppy powertrains that offer balanced performance.

  • 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine with Dual Variable Valve Timing with intelligence (VVT-i): Most trims of the 2019 Corolla — Le, LE, XLE, SE, and XSE — are powered by the 1.8-liter four-cylinder with VVT-i, which is mated to a Continuously Variable Transmission with intelligence and Shift Mode (CVTi-S). On select trims, the engine can instead be linked to a six-speed manual transmission for a more hands-on experience. This engine serves up 132 horsepower and 128 lb-ft of torque. With the CVT, it achieves up to 28 miles per gallon in the city and 36 on the highway; with the manual gearbox, it earns up to 27 mpg and 36 mpg in the city and on the highway, respectively.*
  • 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine with Valvematic technology: Exclusive to the LE Eco model, this efficient powertrain achieves up to 30 miles per gallon in the city and 40 on the highway.* Despite this boost to fuel economy, the engine is still quite potent, pumping out 140 horsepower and 126 lb-ft of torque.

Outside of performance and efficiency, there’s quite a lot to love about the 2019 Toyota Corolla. To experience all of that good stuff for yourself, stop into Capital Toyota and take one for a test drive.
