About Toyota Corolla

The 2017 Toyota Corolla is destined to remain a best-seller, thanks to new styling, a simplified model lineup, improved interior, and a host of standard safety equipment that's unheard of in this class, or even in cars costing much more. It all adds up to a tremendous value, and while the Corolla hasn't been equated with excitement for decades, its reliability, low price and predictable driving dynamics keep it not just competitive, but a leader in the compact-sedan market. Okay, it's not as fun to drive as the Mazda3, Ford Focus or even longtime rival Honda Civic. But the Corolla costs less, is exceptionally roomy front and rear, and its 1.8-liter 4-cylinder engine makes up in fuel economy what it lacks in horsepower.

"Crazy big backseat in a small car, 42mpg on hi-way, comfortable front seats on super-long road trips, Great gauges & dashboard, Good snow/rain performance with correct tires, Awesome value (feature set vs. price paid). After 2 years and 50,000 miles I still love this car. We got the S-Plus model in blue with all features but heated seats. Despite the Corolla S's aggressive styling and 17-inch wheels THIS IS NOT A SPORTS CAR — it doesn't have the intense roadholding zen like a Mazda 3 or Volkswagen GTI. But those cars are more expensive, don't get good gas milage, and have painful backseat room so you have to choose. As for reliability, the only unscheduled maintenance we've encountered was a failed fog lamp that our (excellent) Toyota dealership quickly swapped out for free during an oil change. I still really enjoy driving the car and we've taken two 3,000+ mile road trips that were fun and comfortable. The front seats are really great, the dashboard & gauges are classy and the bluetooth integration is seamless. Not all tires are the same and better tires make a good car, great. With Michelin Premier A/S tires mounted, the ride is quiet and blizzard/hard rain stability/traction is great. I would purchase again and highly recommend the S-Plus model to friends."

"I owned a lot of Toyotas like Prius, Camrys, Avalons, Highlander, and Sequoia. This is my first small car from Toyota (I used to have Nissan Sentras, Mitsubishi Lancers, 2003 Accord coupe). So far, I love my new Corolla LE. It is quieter than the previous version Corolla and other car in its class that I rented (I usually rent cars for 3 days to compare them before buying one). Right now, I am getting 37 mpg combined. Interior is nice especially the dashboard, with easy to control radio and temperature. The available reverse camera is very helpful. Seats are comfortable, but quite hard for my taste though. Although the exterior may look aggressive or sporty especially with a standard LED headlights, but it is not a sports car. It is a modern compact car that focus more in reliability, comfort, and safety and fuel economy. Overall, this 2014 Corolla is a balance of economy of small car and comfort of bigger cars."
