Pros

If you have fond memories of driving reliable Corollas of the past, the 4-door 2015 Toyota Corolla will likely continue the trend. It’s the kind of car you can drive long after the last payment and then hand down to your kids with confidence.

Cons

While the Corolla is solid, it's not sporty or sexy or even luxurious. If you’re looking for any or all of these attributes in a compact car, we suggest the Ford Focus, Dodge Dart or Hyundai Elantra. The Mazda3, Ford Focus and Volkswagen Golf provide the convenience of a hatchback design.

What's New For 2015

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.

Used 2015 Toyota Corolla Expert Review

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.

Driving the Used 2015 Toyota Corolla

Driving enthusiasts and die-hard car junkies probably won’t like the way the Corolla corners and accelerates. But, for the remaining 90 percent who simply want a comfortable, competent and credible car to get them to work on the weekdays and away on weekends, the 2015 Toyota Corolla sedan is more than up to the job. The ride is smooth and well mannered, and while we think the Ford Focus offers a quieter interior, road and wind noise levels inside the Corolla are certainly on par with most other compact sedans. Both iterations of the 1.8-liter engine deliver up enough power to safely merge or pass slower traffic, but they lack the ample torque found in many competitors. When equipped with the CVTi-S automatic transmission, the Corolla gets its best fuel economy and horsepower. The trade-off, however, is more engine noise under hard acceleration due to the high-revving engine.

Favorite Features

AN INTERIOR HOME RUN, PART I: MATERIALS
For too long, Toyota let its compact car interiors look cheap and dated. The 2015 Corolla sedan suffers from neither problem, offering a handsome, comfortable and slightly sophisticated interior anyone would be proud to show off.

AN INTERIOR HOME RUN, PART II: TECH-READY SETUP
One of the biggest areas of improvement is in the Corolla’s highly sought after audio and infotainment systems. The 2015 Corolla includes USB and iPod interfaces, Bluetooth and an available Entune audio system with navigation and full apps suite.

Used 2015 Toyota Corolla Interior

Telling the real story of Toyota’s newest Corolla sedan means talking about what’s inside. As we mentioned, this is a very nice interior – even the car's headliner material is impressive. There's plenty of stretch-out space in the front seats, and the long wheelbase gives rear-seat passengers world-record legroom. Rear headroom, however, is compromised by the jaunty sweep of the Corolla's C-pillar/roofline into the trunk – good to look at, but requires ducking from tall-torsoed riders in back.

Used 2015 Toyota Corolla Exterior

The Corolla sedan’s styling has allowed it to move away from an anonymity that the Federal Witness Protection Program can't duplicate to an appealing series of folded edges in search of big wheels and tires to punctuate its stance (15-inch steel wheels are standard on base models, but find a way to move up to 16- or 17-inch wheels in steel or aluminum if you can). The car looks especially good in darker colors. And while the trunk capacity is a pinch bigger than the previous-generation Corolla, the trunk opening could be a tad bit bigger.

Used 2015 Toyota Corolla Standard Features

Like most of the players in this class, the basic Toyota Corolla L comes pretty basic. The most notable exceptions – Nice interior! Cool, iPod connectivity. Ahh, Bluetooth hands-free calling. – have already been outlined. Don't worry, the car gets air conditioning and a decent 4-speaker audio system, plus power windows, a tilt/telescoping steering wheel, and – all the rage in luxury cars these days – LED headlights. Always thinking of you, Toyota also includes a manual height adjuster for the driver's seat. While not yet ready to tame all the forces in an offset crash test, the new Corolla does offer the protection of eight airbags.

Used 2015 Toyota Corolla Options

As is the habit these days, carmakers don't offer options so much as they offer option packages and add equipment by trim level. The 2015 Toyota Corolla sedan follows this lead. Pass on the base L version and step up to the LE models to get automatic climate control, Entune 6-speaker audio with streaming Bluetooth, bigger wheels, and remote keyless entry. Reaching up to the Corolla S rewards you with a sportier environment that includes fog lights, a chrome-tipped exhaust and a rear-deck spoiler, plus bolder seats and instrument cluster. The Driver's Convenience Package (standard on Premium trims) nets you Entune Premium audio, navigation and apps as well as a power moonroof and push-button starting.

Used 2015 Toyota Corolla Engine

Without asking you to wade waist-deep into an engine-technology discussion, we'd like you to know that the 2015 Toyota Corolla is offered with two versions of a 1.8-liter 4-cylinder engine. The first version, used in L, LE and S Corolla models, produces 132 horsepower and 128 lb-ft of torque – not much bragging rights for power, but the fuel economy is strong for the class (see the EPA numbers below). The second 1.8-liter, in Corolla LE Eco models, gets to tout fuel economy as high as 42 mpg on the highway – superb for a non- hybrid – mated to Toyota's CVTi-S continuously variable automatic transmission. That fuel-conscious CVTi-S also hosts the power in Corolla LE and S automatic-transmission models. A 6-speed manual gearbox is available in Corolla L and S versions, while a 4-speed automatic is available in the Corolla L.

1.8-liter inline-4 (L, LE and S)
132 horsepower @ 6,000 rpm
128 lb-ft of torque @ 4,400 rpm
EPA city/highway fuel economy:
Corolla L: 28/37 mpg (6-speed manual), 27/36 mpg (4-speed automatic)
Corolla LE: 29/38 mpg (CVTi-S automatic)
Corolla S: 29/37 mpg (CVTi-S automatic), 28/37 mpg (6-speed manual)

1.8-liter inline-4 (LE Eco)
140 horsepower @ 6,100 rpm
126 lb-ft of torque @ 4,000 rpm
EPA city/highway fuel economy:
Corolla LE Eco: 30/42 mpg (CVTi-S automatic)
Corolla LE Eco Plus & Eco Premium: 30/40 mpg (CVTi-S automatic)

How Much Does the Used 2015 Toyota Corolla Cost?

Starting with a Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of around $17,750 for the Corolla L and reaching over $24,000 for a Corolla S model loaded past the point of "a good value," the 2015 Toyota Corolla resides right in the heart of the compact-sedan pricing spectrum. Notably, that high end is also where you can enjoy some really nice midsize sedans as well. Before you close a deal on your new Corolla, be sure to check out the KBB.com Fair Purchase Price to see what kinds of deals other folks in your area are getting for theirs. As expected, the Corolla shines when it comes to long term resale value, easily matching the segment leader Honda Civic and outpacing the Kia Forte, Ford Focus, Dodge Dart, Nissan Sentra, Chevrolet Cruze and Mazda3.

"Slowest car ever"

I had the 2015 version of this car so I figured the '17 would be better but I was dead wrong. Toyota slowed this car down soooooo much its ridiculous. The take off is extra slow, worst year ever. I'm actually trying to get rid of it and the trade-in value is useless.

2014 Toyota Corolla

"Good performance, very cheap interior materials"

Mileage, drivability, BT and radio
Cheap upholstery, very cheap carpet, few outlets
Excellent basic cheaper car with good gas mileage, good brakes, and good drivability. A little noisy, but like most in its class. Cruise control is terrible with any hills on your trip. No real cupholders, power outlets, or USB plugs in the back even though this is NOT the low end Corolla. The seat material stains way too easily and can't be cleaned, even by the dealer. The floor "carpet" is NOT carpet, but felt---which CANNOT be vacuumed or really cleaned well at all. It is the worst floor material I have ever had since my first car(of many) since 1962! Bought used with 7000 miles, I took it to my dealer every 500 miles for checkup and service. At 38K, I took off the wheel to check the brakes and found the inside of the rotors were heavily grooved while the outside was barely used. The calipers were BOTH frozen. Unfortunately, neither brakes or calipers are covered under any warranty, and the dealership (Acton Totoya) offered me nothing when I showed them the problem! How could they have missed such a big problem if they really checked my car over each time? I fixed it all myself and now, with 68K, have had NO more problems with the brakes. The plastic front overhang is too low and has broken off twice when hitting the curb stones in parking lots while parking at low speed. The left front two speakers have not worked since about 10K and I haven't taken the door apart to find out why, but heard there is a problem with the door wiring just above the lower speaker. Except for the brakes thing, it has been an economical and zippy commuter car, but I will definitely go back to the Camry next time!Read less

2014 Toyota Corolla

"I've been highly satisfied with my Corolla, but..."

I love my 2014 Corolla Eco, and as is usual for Toyotas, it's highly dependable. I think the styling is beautiful, the seats are very comfortable, the handling is excellent; really, I love my car. Having said that, it's not perfect. I had a frustrating incident a couple years ago on a cold winter's day here in Minnesota. I was shopping and opened the trunk to load groceries, but the locking mechanism froze open so I couldn't latch the trunk. Fortunately I had some twine with which to tie it down, but there wasn't a good solid place on the trunk lid ; I was able to loop it through a plastic part there but I was afraid it was going to break if I hit bumps and the trunk lid bounced up, so I had to take it real slow on my way home. I also don't care for the fabric they used for the seats because it too easily shows stains. I had spilled something on it that caused a stain and in looking in the owner's manual there was no mention as to what cleaner to use--and dealer didn't know--so I made my best guess. Even though I let it thoroughly dry after cleaning, I developed a color over my entire seat from my clothes; it's still there to this day, and very frustrating that it doesn't look clean. There's also a ridge of plastic near my right angle and the gas pedal that's painful after any length of driving because the normal way I'd place my foot there is right up against the ridge, so it puts pressure on my outside ankle bone. Lastly, I recently started experiencing a short in the wiring resulting in the front driver side speaker cutting out. All in all, though, I love my car and would highly recommend it to others. I would just suggest to the Toyota engineers that they look at these issues for future designs of this and other designs.Read less

2014 Toyota Corolla

"EXCELLENT VEHICLE!"

The pure joy of driving it on open road
maybe the driver seat is a bit stiff for long trip
I keep on reading about the lack of exciment the corolla offers to the seasoned driver. I think it's like the movie critics, they rate a movie based in unrealistic very personal standards. I bought my present 2014-this is my 6th toyota-thinking about fuel economy. I was pleasantly surprised by the agility of the car,the responsive handling and the overall quality of the interior. I rate myself an average american driver.I will drive fast when the conditions allow it and drive around 12000 miles per year.For the amount and type of driving I do,this car is a dream come true.Im looking forward to the 2020 model!!.Read less
