"Here, it's good for 169 horsepower and 151 pounds-feet of torque, and it pairs with a six-speed manual or continuously variable automatic transmission. Both have some tricks up their sleeves: The manual gets automatic downshift rev-matching — much like in some sports cars
— while the CVT has a fixed-ratio 1st gear for smoother acceleration from a stop. Both transmissions have impressed us in the Corolla Hatchback, and there's little reason to doubt similar fun in the sedan."
"It's not all bad for those shoppers. All Corolla trims now get an independent, multilink rear suspension
. That's rare among affordable compact sedans, most of which — like the previous Corolla sedan — employ cheaper, semi-independent rear suspensions. The SE and XSE grades have a sport-tuned setup."https://www.cars.com/articles/2020-toyo ... 703581017/
