The car has impressive EPA ratings of 53 miles per gallon city, 52 mpg highway and 52 mpg combined.

The Corolla Hybrid doesn't have too many visual changes from the standard model. Unique 15-inch wheels and various Hybrid badges are the main giveaways.

Because the nickel-metal hydride battery pack sits beneath the rear seats it doesn't reduce interior or cargo space compared to a standard Corolla.

The Corolla Hybrid drives well and easily returns impressive fuel economy numbers. An EV Mode button even allows (very short) all-electric driving.

Unlike some hybrids -- including the Prius -- the Corolla Hybrid doesn't have a deliberately weird shifter, instead using a traditional automatic shift lever.
