Updated 2023 Toyota Corolla Hybrid review // More trims and AWD!

This is a Motormouth couple car review of the updated 2023 Toyota Corolla Hybrid, now with many more trims and AWD.
What’s new for 2023? As before the Toyota hybrid system pairs a 1.8L 4-cylinder but with a re-engineered drive motor and lithium-ion battery. The new hybrid system includes a newly developed lithium-ion battery that’s located under the rear seat to lower the centre of gravity and maximize trunk cargo capacity.
The updated Toyota Corolla hybrid gains more power and traction with electronic on-demand AWD which employs a separate rear-mounted electric motor to power the rear wheels when needed. This hybrid is matched to an e-CVT and has a combined 138 horsepower, FWD and AWD options are available.
The Toyota Corolla hybrid offers 5.3” of ground clearance and gets a freshened exterior look with a new front fascia, LED daytime running lights, an updated rear bumper, standard LED headlights, LED taillights, 15” wheels and a tire repair kit. In the US, 16” wheels are standard. The higher trims get redesigned LED headlamps, an all-new sport diffuser, 18” gloss graphite coloured alloy wheels and a new colour called Underground which you see on our top trim test model.
Standard features include, a 7” multi-information display (Canada) 4.2” (US) 8” touchscreen, wireless Apple Carplay and Android Auto, 6-speaker audio system, fabric upholstery, manual heated front seats and Toyota Safety Sense 3.0 including blind spot monitoring and rear cross traffic alert.
