0W-20 is Toyota's preferred Oil - 5W-30 may be used but should be replaced at the next Oil change with 0W-20.

I thought that 0w20 is for hybrids? I keep using 5w30 but that's in 2.0 d4d engine so different than OPs.

Originally 0W-20 was the recommended Oil for hybrids. However from 2008 with the introduction of Toyota's Optimal Drive petrol engines, 0W-20 also became the preferred Oil for these.

Incidentally, for new models introduced in 2019 (Corolla hybrid, Rav4 hybrid, facelift Prius, C_HR hybrid and Aygo) the recommended Oil is 0W-16, and the 4th generation (2020) Yaris hybrid uses 0W-8.
