2022 Toyota Corolla Prius - Pre-Order in Barrhaven
Toyota was one of the pioneers of the consumer car hybrid format with their original range of Prius vehicles. And while that venerable nameplate is still going strong, the benefits of hybrid technology are now spreading across the company's whole range. The 2022 Toyota Corolla Hybrid is the latest entry into the Canadian hybrid sedan market, offering an affordable route into the latest electric technology. The model is now available for test drive at our Barrhaven dealership, and here are the key highlights of this fuel-efficient compact car.
Advanced Hybrid Powertrain Efficiency
Toyota have learned much over their years of Prius development, and the 2022 Corolla Hybrid's powertrain draws on all of that expertise. It uses a very similar design to the Prius, built around a 1.8L inline-four gas engine paired with a single electric motor and a lithium-ion battery. The overall output comes in at 122 horsepower, and is passed to front-wheel drive through a continuously variable transmission (CVT).
Amazing Fuel Efficiency
This hybrid won't win many drag races, but it provides ample power and performance for daily driving duties. However, the Corolla Hybrid excels at the key advantage of the powertrain format, namely fuel efficiency. The official highway rating comes in at 4.5L / 100km, which is impressive enough, but the city economy is actually better at a stunning 4.4L / 100km. If you're looking for a smooth-driving hybrid that delivers great savings at the gas pump, the Corolla is the model to head for.
Cabin and Cargo
One drawback of older hybrid designs was the reduction in cabin space caused by the addition of a large battery. Thankfully, this doesn't apply to the Corolla, which offers exactly the same interior dimensions as its gas-based equivalent. Legroom measures a creditable 106.7cm in the front and 88.4cm in the rear, while the spacious trunk offers 371L of cargo space.
All models of the 2022 Toyota Corolla offer the same roster of interior tech features, based an 8" infotainment touchscreen complete with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility for easy smartphone connection.
Enhanced Safety Systems
New for 2022, all models of the Corolla Hybrid will be supplied with an enhanced suite of safety systems, going under the name of Toyota Safety Sense 2.0. Highlights of the system will include:
- Stop-and-go adaptive cruise control as standard. - Lane departure warnings and lane keep assist. - Forward collision warnings with pedestrian and cyclist detection. - Automated forward emergency braking. - Available blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alerts. - Road sign recognition. What's more, the newest 2022 Corolla models will all feature automatic front and rear running lights which illuminate whenever the vehicle is moving, as well as main headlights which switch into high beam automatically.
