2020 Toyota Corolla sedan pricing and specs

The 2020 Toyota Corolla sedan offers more safety equipment and the option of hybrid power, but buyers will be forced to pay more than before when it arrives late in November. Priced in line with the hatchback, the new Corolla sedan will start at $23,335 before on-road costs in Ascent Sport manual guise, an increase of $2095 over the current entry-level Ascent sedan. Opting for the CVT transmission bumps that price to $24,835 before on-roads.
