However, the Corolla doesn’t stop there when it comes to engine options.

This powertrain option achieves an EPA-estimated 53 city/52 highway MPG, so you can enjoy lengthy drives past the gas station.*

This 2021 Toyota Corolla trim level also comes with a selectable ECO driving mode that helps conserve fuel and make the most out of your gas tank. This tunes your ride to focus on conserving fuel and making the most out of each drop of gasoline.

What Affects My Fuel Economy?

Toyota Corolla MPG

The engineering and mechanical design that go into the Corolla are only part of what factors into its fuel efficiency. Both how and where you drive play major roles. Smart and safe driving will let you get more out of your fuel tank. Likewise, there are driving habits that will use more gas.

Here are just a few things to keep in mind when you’re driving if you’re looking to get the most out of your gas tank:

  • Weight plays a crucial role in your car’s mileage. The more weight added to the car from passengers and cargo, the more fuel it will use to move you. There’s 88.6 cubic feet of passenger volume in the Corolla for your friends to sit comfortably. Just be aware that, as more folks pile in, you’ll need more gas.
  • Aerodynamics is how a vehicle cuts through the wind as it travels down the road. Sleek sedans, like the Corolla, are designed to cut through wind with ease. As you gain speed, you’ll encounter more wind resistance, meaning you’ll have to use more fuel.
  • Keep the windows up when traveling at high speeds. This helps reduce any drag you’d encounter on the highway. If you’re hot, let the automatic climate control system keep you cool.
  • Minimize any exterior additions that add to surface area. Tying down cargo to the roof will increase wind resistance.

What Can I Do to Improve MPG?

Luckily, you as the driver have a lot of control over how much your ride gets out of its gas tank. There are plenty of good practices on the road that will benefit your gas mileage:

  • Accelerate and brake steadily when driving. Slamming on the accelerator or the brakes causes dramatic shifts in energy, which wastes power made from burning fuel. Keep your driving smooth to avoid wasting gas.
  • Stay on even roads for an easier and more efficient drive. Dirt and gravel roads don’t offer the same traction as pavement, which means your car will need more energy to get moving.
