As you can see, the first-ever Toyota Corolla Hybrid slates at the upper end of the spectrum when it comes to hybrid sedans. Only two vehicles surpass it in city fuel economy – the Toyota Prius, which is the most fuel-efficient hybrid vehicle on the market, and the new 2019 Honda Insight. The same can be said on the highway, but instead of the Insight, it is the Toyota Camry Hybrid that joins that Prius as the only vehicles offering more fuel economy. When it comes combined fuel efficiency, the Corolla Hybrid matches both the Insight and Camry Hybrid at 52 miles per gallon, with the Prius surpassing them at 56 mpg.
The rest of the vehicles don’t even break 50 mpg, thrusting the Corolla Hybrid into the limelight for the new model year. Who is to say when or if more hybrid vehicles join the market for 2020, after all, several of the vehicles in the table are 2019 models. But as of now, the Corolla Hybrid is one of the most efficient sedans on the market.
