Interior The good news, interior-wise, is that the latest-generation Corolla offers an additional 5. Current owners will like the improvements in the current model while its somewhat edgier styling and smooth ride — combined with Toyota's quality and reliability — should also attract even more buyers to the Corolla nameplate. Plus, you will be soothed with Air Conditioning or Automatic climate control, depending on trim level. Odometer is 6343 miles below market average! I got to neck cramp my chin into my chest to catch a view. Vehicle information is based off standard equipment and may vary from vehicle to vehicle. Along the sides, it's still slab-city, although there is a character line that runs from just aft of the front wheel, bisecting both door handles and terminating at the midpoint of the rear tail lamps. That gripe aside, we should note that its handling is secure and the ride is well controlled, absorbing minor road irregularities and larger bumps with ease.
On the road Although the latest Corolla is the best handling one yet, we find that it's still no sports sedan and lacks the steering feedback and responsive suspension found in the best vehicles in this class. Although feedback through the pedal is only average and there's not a lot of initial bite to the pads, the brakes are responsive, linear and easy to modulate. With 4 models there is a Corolla for almost every taste. There's also a total of 97. I do a lot of night driving so this is high on my list of fubars! My real complaint is the blue hi beam icon is equally obscured. Call or email for complete vehicle specific information.
It comes with great fuel economy, a quiet, roomy interior and the best standard headlight setup in the compact segment. The infotainment touch screen is within easy reach also includes redundant buttons for the major functions. What a retarded improvement over my 2004 rolla which has the indicator at the bottom of your line of sight where it belongs. It's also helped by the fact that all but base model Corollas get a standard rear view camera. Passengers up front will be comfortable in adjustable, Whiplash-Injury-Lessening seats. In back, there's a small decklid spoiler that sits atop stylish teardrop-shaped tail lamp enclosures with nary any chrome trim to be found.
It has been given major stylistic changes inside and out resulting in a car that is edgy, fun, and economical all at once. Visibility is great out the front and decent out the sides, back and rear three-quarters. Toyota has given shoppers 2 peppy 1. The prices shown above, may vary from region to region, as will incentives, and are subject to change. Instrumentation is clear easy to read and intuitive to use.
Other than that, the interior is conservatively styled with a horizontal dashboard, soft touch surfaces pretty much everywhere and a rich-looking flat knit headliner. I am very annoyed at this lack of design ground rules which should have prevented such a glaring oversight. Base L model buyers get the choice of either a standard 6-speed manual or optional conventional 4-speed automatic transmission, while all other models including our S are available only with a continuously variable transmission for better fuel economy. Was toyo afraid drivers would complain about the blue light blinding them if placed in plain view? At freeway speeds the suspension compliance makes it feels like a much larger sedan, with a very comfortable ride without the floating feeling found in many small cars that sacrifice agility for wheel travel. Depending on the model and trim you select you can get a 6-Speed manual, a 4-speed automatic Transmission with intelligence, or a Continuously Variable Transmission with intelligence and Shift Mode. I got the s version and the idiot engs should be reschooled.
Up front, there's plenty of leg, hip, shoulder and headroom for adults of all sizes, while the uplevel seats on Corolla S models offer a decent amount of thigh, lateral and lumbar support. I'm tall and I like my seat riding high. The base L trim comes nicely equipped with essentials like power windows, locks and outside mirrors, and a steering wheel with audio and Bluetooth hands-free phone controls. Compared to many vehicles in this class, especially in around town driving there isn't a lot of noise from the wind or tires — although the engine definitely makes itself known when you put your foot into the accelerator pedal. The top-level S trims offer enticing features like Paddle Shifters for precision driving, Sport Drive mode, 17-inch alloy wheels, Push Button Start, a Multi-information display, and the amazing Entune Premium Audio System with Navigation and App Suite.
The new front grille and dramatic headlights show off its attitude, complemented smooth aerodynamic lines all the way back to the stylish new taillights in the rear. The Bottom Line There's a lot to like about the latest Corolla. S-trim models get a standard two gauge cluster with a 3. In back, there's actually room for three adults courtesy of a lower center floor hump and 41. Although the L model has a more forgiving ride due to its smaller wheels and higher-aspect tires, buyers looking for the type of handling that feels a little more connected will appreciate the slightly firmer suspension tuning of the S trim level.
