The most important update in 2023 is the new all-wheel drive option for the Corolla hybrid sedan.
It uses an electronic all-wheel drive setup like the Prius, attaches another electric motor to the rear axle, and uses power only when needed.
This means that the drive shaft is not attached to the rear wheels like a conventional all-wheel drive system, which makes the drive train run more efficiently.
There are other hybrid models to choose from. Front-wheel drive Corolla hybrids are available in the LE, SE, and XLE classes. All-wheel drive is an option for LE and SE.
The price hasn't been announced yet, so it's unclear how much the premium AWD will outperform the FWD trim.As before,
the 2023 Corolla Hybrid combines a 1.8-liter in-line 4-cylinder with a lithium-ion battery pack
and is now mounted under the backseat for a lower center of gravity and more trunk space.
Official EPA fuel economy estimates for the 2023 Corolla Hybrid are not yet available.
