Performance and Efficiency

There are three engine options for the 2021 Corolla. The first is the 1.8-liter I-4 that delivers 139 horsepower and 129 pound-feet of torque (fuel economy 29/37/32 MPG). The second is a 2.0-liter I-4 producing 169 horsepower and 151 pound-feet of torque (fuel economy 31/38/34).

The final option is the hybrid, which adds two motors to the first engine and delivers 121 horsepower and 105 pound-feet of torque (fuel economy 53/52/52). There are two transmission options available; the CVT and a six-speed manual option available for the larger engine.

Interior and Comfort

The interior is functional and straightforward, with a streamlined dashboard and soft-touch materials. A standard push-starts button and passive entry is offered, and you can upgrade some of the models to include heated front seats, interior lighting, and dual-zone climate control. The interior space is enough for rear passengers to sit comfortably, but the sedan provides more legroom than the hatchback.

The sedan's cargo space is rated at 13.1 cubic feet with the more practical hatchback at 17.8 cubic feet. However, you have the standard 60/40 split for longer items if you fold the rear seat.

Technology and Safety

All trims except the base feature an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay, Alexa capabilities, and the now-standard Android Auto. This comes with a six-speaker audio system that can be upgraded to a nine-speaker JBL audio system in the SE (CVT), XSE, and XLE trims. The 2021 Corolla comes with standard safety features thanks to the Toyota Safety sense 2.0 suite. Some of the features include:

  • Adaptive cruise control
  • Pedestrian detection system
  • Lane-keeping assist
  • Automatic high beams
  • Pre-collision alert
  • Automatic emergency braking

The all-new 2021 Toyota Corolla is not only pleasing on paper but also on the road. Head down to our dealerships in Fresno and schedule a test drive and get a sense of what it feels like being behind the wheels of the all-new 2021 Corolla.

Lease the Toyota Corolla in Fresno

The Toyota Corolla has proven to be a popular leasing option among Fresno drivers over the last several years. Between its already affordable MSRP and reliable build, getting low monthly payments on a vehicle that hardly needs anything more than routine maintenance is a great value. At Michael Toyota of Fresno, we make it easy to lease a Toyota Corolla with low monthly payments, an affordable down payment, and flexible terms.

A Toyota lease lasts between 24 to 60 months, and you have the power to determine your lease length. Once it's over, you'll have the option to purchase your Corolla, enter a new lease agreement, or walk away altogether. It's also worth noting that there will be a few payments you need to make at the outset of your lease. They are as follows:

  • Your First Month's Payment
  • The Acquisition Fee
  • A Refundable Security Deposit that is Returned at Lease's End
  • A Capitalized Cost Reduction
  • Taxes and Fees

Leasing a Toyota Corolla has a range of benefits, including lower monthly payments and almost non-existent maintenance costs. Drivers can enjoy the benefits of the warranty that comes with a new Corolla, just as they would, had they financed it. Plus, if you fall in love with your Corolla, buying it is as simple as paying off the remaining balance.
