POWERTRAIN AND FUEL ECONOMY
The 2015 Toyota Corolla springs from an automaker known for its precision engineering and fuel economy. So you'll expect great engines, and you'll get them with a choice of two -- a 1.8L 4-cylinder producing 132 hp and a 1.8L 4-cylinder with 140 horses. In comparison, the Elantra also offers 2 engines -- a 1.8L Inline 4 with 145 hp and a 2.0L I4 with 173 hp. The Elantra offers a bit more power with its engines, but sacrifices fuel efficiency. While both the 2015 Corolla and Elantra garner an estimated 31-mpg combined city/highway with the 4-cylinder with manual, the Elantra V6 only manages 28 mpg, while the fuel-efficient 2015 Toyota Corolla LE Eco kicks butt with an impressive 34 combined mpg.
