Traditional Virtues Fortified by High MPG
The venerable Toyota Corolla's most recent stem-to-stern makeover enhanced this compact bestseller's traditional strengths -- reliability, affordability, low operating costs -- with 21st-century must-have improvements: a roomier interior, reduced interior noise, and increased fuel economy. Its more contemporary sheetmetal surrounds a substantially larger Corolla, which offers one of the roomiest rear seats in the class. The Corolla comes standard with a long list of safety equipment, including the Toyota Safety Sense-P suite of features, with pre-collision with pedestrian detection, adaptive cruise control and lane departure alert with steering assist.
With attractive pricing, contemporary styling, class-leading roominess and high fuel economy ratings, the Toyota Corolla has what it takes to continue building on its formidable worldwide sales record -- 43 million cars and still going strong, the bestselling brand in automotive history.
From our 2018 Toyota Corolla full review: "Driving enthusiasts aside, most people will find much to like about the 2018 Toyota Corolla sedan. The ride is soft without excessive wallowing, and the steering is surprisingly responsive with good on-center feel. Visibility is also a Corolla strong point, as are its comfortable and supportive front seats."
Modern, Spacious Cabin
The Corolla boasts one of the roomiest interiors in the compact sedan segment, with 41.4 inches of rear-seat legroom. The cabin also offers standard USB and Bluetooth connectivity, and the available features list includes a 7.0-inch display, Entune Audio, Entune Apps, HD Radio, navigation and Siri Eyes Free mode.

KBB.com visitor and Corolla owner Scott D had this to say: "Very impressed with the car. Safety Systems (For 2017 lane departure, pre-collision braking and adaptive speed control are standard on ALL MODELS). The car gets great MPG and rides well. Blue tooth works well. The engine is outdated and the car has pretty sluggish acceleration. However, you get great reliability, good styling and good riding car for a very reasonable price."
