Hyundai Sonata vs Toyota Corolla Engine Specs & Performance

The Corolla, on the other hand, features a 1.8-liter 4-cylinder engine, although its output is limited to just 139 horsepower and 126 lb-ft of torque.

In-Cabin Media & Technology Features

Each of these vehicles offer an impressive assortment of features and technology within their respective cabins. They both include sophisticated dashboard-mounted touchscreens. However, the screen in the Hyundai Sonata is eight inches, while the Corolla screen comes close with seven inches.

Both vehicles include Apple CarPlay® for smartphone integration into the touchscreen. However, the 2020 Sonata also includes Android Auto™, which is suitable for non-Apple smartphones. These connectivity systems make the paired smartphone accessible through the touchscreen-allowing drivers to select their apps, contacts, and media without having to take their phone out.

Driver-Assistance Technology Features

The 2020 Toyota Corolla and Hyundai Sonata each include suites of driver-assisting technology features. These systems work closely with radar sensors that are placed on the exterior of the vehicles, which are then used to measure the speed of the vehicle, as well as its distance from the object ahead. Using these measurements, the systems can accurately predict an impending collision or road departure, and provide assistance and mitigation.

Each vehicle includes a pre-collision system designed to provide brake pressure to give you time to react. Both sedans even include lane departure systems to help keep the vehicle in its intended lane. The Hyundai Sonata includes the Driver Attention Warning system, which recognizes when a driver is beginning to zone out and provides an alert to keep you focused. This feature isn’t available with the 2020 Corolla.
