Fuel Efficiency

Toyota has manufactured models of Corolla for 37 years. They average 28.2 combined miles per gallon, with the latest 2020 Corolla above average at 33 combined MPG.

Government regulators estimate the fuel cost of the 2020 Corolla to be $1,150 per year. This estimate is based on 15,000 miles driven, 55% city driving and 45% highway driving, and regular gasoline.

Compared to other vehicles, you spend $1,500 less over 5 years compared to an average vehicle.

The Corolla consumes about 10 barrels of petroleum per year, according to the standard estimate of 15,000 miles driven. Most of the world's petroleum comes from countries like Russia, Saudi Arabia, the U.S., and Iraq.

The Corolla emits 266 grams of CO2 per mile, or roughly 3,990,000 grams per year. To put this into perspective, a normal tree absorbs about 21,000 grams of CO2 per year, so about 190 trees would offset these emissions. The Corolla does not have start-stop technology.
