When compared to the standard Corolla, the Hybrid version gets double-wishbone rear suspension, better brakes and three driving modes – Electric, Economy and Power.
The 2016 Toyota Corolla Hybrid is priced at just $26,990. It also makes use of the Prius powerplant while costing almost $8,000 less. This makes the Corolla Hybrid a cost effective choice against the larger and more expensive Toyota Prius.
