2012 Toyota Corolla Fuel Economy

Fuel Economy

The 2012 Toyota Corolla has gas mileage ratings that are merely ordinary—which is surprising, considering the automaker's reputation for producing the most fuel-stingy line of hybrids in its Prius family.

Whether it has a manual or automatic transmission, the Corolla gets 34 mpg highway, according to the EPA, with city ratings of 26 or 27 mpg. But with a number of models that now achieve 40 mpg on the highway—or close to it—the Corolla isn't at all a standout.

Toyota's hybrids might have a reputation for being among the greenest vehicles at any price, but the 2012 Corolla is merely average.
