Which version of the Toyota Corolla Touring Sports is better?

I'm looking at buying a used Toyota Corolla Touring Sports. Is it worth getting the new (2023) model or would the drive/handling of a 2021 model suffice?

Toyota added a lighter and more powerful battery to the Corolla Touring Sports in 2022, which allows it to travel further in EV mode as well as better acceleration. However, the pre-facelift version is still a good drive, so it is a matter of personal choice and financial considerations, as you would likely save a significant amount of money by choosing the older example.
