4. New motor; sort of
The 1.8 L engine from the previous Corolla carries over to the new generation, but is joined by another 1.8 L unit. The new motor features Valvematic technology that Toyota claims improves both power and efficiency by five percent. The new engine is rated at 140 hp and 126 lb-ft of torque and will be used exclusively in the LE Eco trim paired to the new CVTi-S.
