First off, with one or two exceptions there are no direct injection-only engines offered by Toyota currently and in the context of the Corollas all of the engine choices (there are 2) have both port injection and direct injection. So you won’t find port injection-only or direct injection-only.
Second, the VVT-iE (electric intelligent variable valve timing) is only offered on the new Dynamic Force Series engines, which that series of engines have not been around all that long in North America so long term reliability is unknown. In the context of the Corolla this would be the 2.0L I4 engine (M20A-FKS) which for 2022 models is offered on the SE, SE Nightshade, and SE Apex Editions.
The engine that is NOT the Dynamic Force engine is the 1.8L I4 (2ZR-FAE) which is more true and tried. It is found on the L, LE, and XLE trims.
