When shopping around for a new or used vehicle, individuals and families often consider a Toyota. The Toyota brand has been a trusted choice for many years, as the vehicles often last a long time and get very high mileage. This is why both old and new Toyotas are often seen on the road. Toyota has a small sedan, called the Corolla. The Toyota Corolla is a popular vehicle that has become known for both dependability and fuel efficiency.
The Toyota Corolla was completely redesigned in 2009, and more improvements were added to the 2010 model. Other than the XRS model, all 2010 Corollas come with a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine, which is rated at 132 hp and 128 pound-feet of torque. Corollas come with front wheel drive. A 5-speed automatic comes standard, and it gets 26 mpg (miles per gallon) in the city, 35 mpg highway, and 30 mpg combined. This vehicle also has an optional 4-speed automatic, which gets 27 mpg in the city. The fuel ratings were estimated by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). These estimates may vary slightly between cars of the same model.
To fill up the 13.2 gallon tank, it will cost an average of $30.65, depending on the fluctuations in gas price. If 15,000 miles are driven in a year, expect to pay about $1289 for gas in that year. This calculation is based on a gas price of $2.58 per gallon.
Fuel efficiency has become more important as gas prices rise. Fuel Efficiency in the 2010 Toyota Corolla is excellent. This is definitely a car to consider when shopping for a fuel efficient small sedan.
