    The Toyota website indicates the 2020 Corolla Hybrid DOES have the TSS 2.0 system

    In the US no hatch, so lose, lose, lose.

    Hope you can count to big numbers. That'll be decades. Maybe where you live - but most of the world isn't ready, nor interested.

    I think GasperG was refering to the Prius not having the TSS 2.0

    Yes, sorry I missed that Corolla part, I was talking about Prius not having LTA.

    They still have that black cow-catcher grille.
    Perhaps the Toyota and Lexus designers heard something about cow-catchers being popular in the ‘20s. What was meant was the 1920s. The designers assumed 2020s and thought they would get a head start with their designs.
    Those who do not study history are doomed to copy it poorly?? :(:mad:

    Similar to the article author my second car but first Toyota was a used 1969 Corolla. In Canada it had a 2 speed automatic transmission. It also had slow acceleration.

    I killed it though. It ended up as the filling in a 60mph “freeway sandwich “ on Highway 401.
    When a police officer passes your driveshaft through the back window, the car is in rough shape. The driver’s seat ended up angled 30 degrees toward the rear.

    My 2nd car was a COROLLA - a used KE10B 1969 - but with a 4 speed Manual - much better acceleration than the auto. Good little car, 1077cc engine, less than 750kg I think.

    Mine had a more sloped rear window. The gas filler door was located beside the rear driver side window.
    I remember the corners of the front bumper would move up and down from the engine vibration. The car did allow me to survive the crash between 2 larger cars.

    Yep - a mate drove one of them (it was his Mum's), and it was the 2 sp auto - and gutless compared with mine.

    Please note the date of release. Probably the 4Gen (2016) was measured under different norms.
    Real world data is much closer.
