2022 Toyota Corolla Hybrid LE
The look in everyone's eyes lets you know that the style is on point. The Toyota Corolla achieves at least 50 mpg combined fuel economy, the 2022 Corolla Hybrid is ta fuel-efficient model to ever wear the Corolla name. This high-efficiency model uses the latest Toyota Hybrid Synergy Drive and, like its gas-powered siblings, delivers a highly satisfying driving experience. With a hybrid system that combines a 1.8-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine with two motor/generators, the combined system output of 121 horsepower yields decidedly responsive performance. Corolla Hybrid also brings the latest advances in comfort, multimedia technology and safety. Luxury fabric-trimmed 6-way adjustable driver’s seat and 4-way adjustable front passenger seats are standard, with Toyota Safety Sense 2.0 suite of active safety systems standard. Drivers can take command with a tilt/telescopic 3-spoke steering wheel with controls for audio, Multi-Information Display, Bluetooth® hands-free phone, voice-command, Dynamic Radar Cruise Control and Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist. Upgrade to a new for 2022 Premium Interior Package with leather trimmed steering wheel, SofTex®-trimmed heated front seats and power-adjustable driver’s seat with lumbar support. A standard 8-in. touchscreen powering a six-speaker sound system that’s Android Auto™, Apple CarPlay® and Amazon Alexa compatible. Drivers and passengers can shuffle to their hearts content by connecting with a front USB media port or Bluetooth® or enjoy an available SiriusXM® 3-month Platinum Plan trial subscription. A premium instrumentation cluster with 7-in. color Multi-Information Display (MID) with customizable settings keeps drivers in-the-know with a hybrid system power meter, eco-mode indicator, speedometer and tachometer, coolant temperature, one-touch 3-blink lane change turn signal indicator and warning messages. Safety features are packed into the 2022 Corolla Hybrid. High-tensile strength steel body panels provide a strong shell for the unitized body construction, and front and rear energy-absorbing crumple zones with side-impact door beams come standard on every Corolla model. On the inside, an Advanced Airbag System includes driver and front passenger seat-mounted side airbags, driver knee airbag, front passenger seat cushion airbag, rear seat-mounted side airbags and front and rear side curtain airbags. Toyota Safety Sense 2.0 comes standard with Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist, Automatic High Beams, Road Sign Assist, Lane Tracing Assist and Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control. Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert are an available option.
A Nice Hybrid The hybrid powertrain and battery were a natural fit for the new Corolla because of the Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) platform. There’s no compromise in cabin roominess, for example, when choosing the Corolla Hybrid versus a gas model. Corolla Hybrid uses a Lithium Ion battery pack that’s placed under the rear seat, rather than taking up trunk space, allowing a 60/40 split folding rear seatback to expand cargo capacity. The battery location also contributes to the vehicle’s lower center of gravity, a boon to agility. The engine, working in concert with the electric motor (MG2), assures responsive performance, while exemplary energy efficiency is achieved by using both electric motors (MG1 and MG2) for hybrid battery charging. Driving the Corolla Hybrid The Corolla Hybrid’s linear acceleration response may take some by surprise. When pulling away, the battery provides a subtle power boost in order to put less strain on the engine and eliminate the “rubber band” effect experienced with some hybrids. A preload differential adds to the confident acceleration feel. During low loads and low differential rotation, differential-limited torque is distributed to the left and right wheels, yielding excellent handling stability. At mid-range and high engine loads, the preload differential functions as an open differential. Corolla Hybrid has EV mode, which allows the vehicle to be operated as a pure electric vehicle for short distances, depending upon certain conditions, such as battery charge level. This mode is useful for operating the vehicle in parking lots or indoor parking garages, for example. The Vehicle Proximity Notification feature alerts pedestrians of the vehicle’s presence when running in battery mode. Along with the expected NORMAL and ECO drive modes, a POWER drive mode setting allows for an increase in power for stronger acceleration response when desired. · NORMAL mode: Allows the hybrid system to achieve an ideal combination of fuel economy and vehicle acceleration. The accelerator opening amount changes linearly in response to accelerator pedal operation. · ECO mode: Improves hybrid system efficiency by limiting power in response to light to moderate accelerator pedal input. · POWER mode: Available power is increased, allowing for improved acceleration response.
Stopping the Corolla Hybrid Geat efficiency comes from the Electronically Controlled Brake (ECB) system, which coordinates operation between the regenerative braking force of the electric motors and the hydraulic braking system force to provide optimal stopping power. By using the electric motors to recover electrical energy from the regenerative braking system,brings high level efficient cooperative control helps to maximize fuel economy. Brake Hold, when engaged, is a convenient technology that reduces driver effort while waiting at a traffic light or while driving in heavy traffic. When the driver presses the accelerator, Brake Hold releases instantly.
