Narrow year range (drag arrows to filter):
The compact Toyota Corolla gains only modest enhancements for 2015. LE and LE Eco models get a new painted front grille, while LE, S and LE Eco Premium trims become mono-spec cars, gaining last year's Driver Convenience Package (moonroof, Smart Key and Entune), but offering no other packages or upgrades.
The 2012 Toyota Corolla L gains color-keyed power side mirrors, power windows with driver's auto-down feature, power door locks, and keyless entry. The LE trim gains steering wheel audio controls and 16-inch alloy wheels. The LE and S trims also get a new audio unit with MP3/WMA CD playback capability, a USB iPod interface, and Bluetooth connectivity for cell phone and music streaming.
This new Corolla sedan, available in five "grades" from base to sporty and the more powerful XRS, is a better-looking car than the plain-Jane previous generation. It's also quieter and slightly roomier, achieves better fuel economy with its standard 1.8-liter engine and offers better performance and handling in 2.4-liter XRS trim.
When Toyota overhauled the Corolla last year, the company used a mix bag of tricks, updating the exterior, interior and features, but retaining the same 1.8-liter engine and well-established twist-beam rear axle suspension. As a result, the 5-passenger 2015 Toyota Corolla sedan continues to offer buyers a solid, dependable compact car delivering good fuel economy at an affordable price. While the Corolla's design is not revolutionary, Toyota knows it must remain competitive, so the Corolla offers up a number of refinements in audio and infotainment. It also offers more interior enhancements on par with with cars like the sporty Mazda Mazda3 and fuel-efficient Ford Focus.
