Refreshing Or Revolting: 2020 Toyota Corolla Sedan

On Monday, November 19th, 2018

The Toyota Corolla hatchback returned to the U.S. market earlier this year, bringing with it a sleek exterior design, modern interior, and all the benefits that come with the TNGA platform.

Now, Toyota has taken that car and tweaked its body to create the 2020 Corolla sedan. With the obvious exception of the trunk, the Corolla sedan looks a lot like its hatchback sibling. But how does it compare to the car it replaces? Take a look below and decide for yourself.

When viewed from the side, the front end remains the biggest distinguishing feature between the new and old sedan. The new Corolla has a more natural slope to its C-pillar, and the greenhouse shape is less angular than before. Thanks to the TNGA switch, the 2020 Corolla sheds 0.8 inch in height and has a hood that’s 1.8 inches lower, which lowers the beltline compared to its predecessor. Top trim levels get the 18-inch alloy wheels seen here, which are lifted straight from the Corolla hatch.

The rear end is much more conservative than the front, but there are a few details that help it stand out. Perhaps due to the 0.9-inch wider rear track, the new model looks more planted than before with rear fenders that bow out ever so slightly.

Inside, the 2020 Corolla sedan looks nearly identical to the hatch, using the same Avalon-derived dashboard design and free-standing Entune 3.0 touchscreen. Given this development, the dash is much less cluttered than the one on the old Corolla since most of the controls are now consolidated in the infotainment screen. The cockpit also looks more open now that the center console no longer connects to the dash.
