Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The Forester was all new for 2019, so Subaru hasn't made many changes for 2020; however, there are a few new features that buyers might find interesting. The standard adaptive cruise control system gains a lane-centering feature, the tire-pressure monitor now displays the pressure in each tire, an LED lamp illuminates the license plate on all models, and a rear-seat reminder alerts the driver to check the back seat upon exiting the vehicle if the rear doors were opened prior to the start of the trip. Premium models now come standard with the contents of last year's All-Weather package—heated exterior mirrors, heated front seats, and a windshield wiper de-icer—and touring models get LED cargo-area dome lights.

Pros
Good at most everything that matters to crossover buyers, spacious cabin, relaxed ride and handling.

Cons
Lethargic acceleration, uninspired design, few luxuries come standard.

Cons

It’s still among the more mildly flavored mass-market sedans, but the 2020 Toyota Corolla has dropped the bland from its diet.

Pros
More entertaining to drive
New engine, more power
Sportier look that’s more restrained
Well-executed infotainment, with Apple CarPlay

Cons
Cramped rear seat
More cargo space wouldn’t hurt
It’s sportier, but not necessarily sporty
Needs less noise

The 2020 Toyota Corolla ranked #5 in Compact Cars. Currently the Toyota Corolla has a score of 8.2 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 21 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Outstanding predicted reliability rating
Great fuel economy

Cons

Inconsistent transmission performance
Cramped rear seat in hatchback model

While Toyota completely redesigned the Corolla hatchback for 2019, the version with a trunk arrives a year later as the all-new 2020 Corolla sedan. Along with a much improved interior and better looking exterior, the Corolla lineup adds a hybrid model for the first time. Both body styles are also now built on Toyota's New Global Architecture (TNGA), which underpins the highly popular Toyota Camry and the even more popular Toyota RAV4.

Pros
Wonderful fuel economy, sedan's roomy back seat, standard driver assists.

Cons
Coarse engine noise, unexciting to drive, hatchback's reduced practicality.
