While Toyota has been producing hybrid vehicles for decades now, hybrid technology may not seem like that big of a deal anymore, but the 2021 Toyota Corolla is going to change that. Hybrid-exclusive models have been an effective way to show that hybrids are viable, but it’s hard to say they will be become mainstream unless well-known models start to be built as hybrids.
The Toyota Corolla is the definition of a mainstream vehicle, having sold so many models over the years, and now the LE trim for the 2021 Corolla is available as a regular gasoline car, or a hybrid. This makes buying a hybrid feel less like a risk, and more like a common, responsible choice. But is a hybrid Corolla still a Corolla? The chart that follows will help you figure out if you would choose the hybrid yourself.
Android Auto™, Apple CarPlay®, and Amazon Alexa Connectivity
Ten Airbag Safety System
Bluetooth® Wireless Technology
105 lb-ft of Torque
3-Point Seatbelts for All Seating Positions
Center Console with Storage Compartment

The 2021 Toyota Corolla LE Hybrid is a great way to get introduced to driving a hybrid. The only real downside to this Hybrid is that it isn’t exactly a full-featured trim level. Perhaps in time a Hybrid XLE or XSE will become available and everyone will be able to get the same high-quality features that are currently only available to traditional fuel models.
