The 2019 Toyota Corolla is about as good as it gets in the smaller car category. This car has it all, including a five-star overall safety rating with two fully loaded Toyota Safety Sense programs and the Star Safety Systems. All of these safety programs can and do prevent accidents with smart camera response to forward moving traffic, sudden stops, and watching for rear cars and pedestrian traffic, like the grocery store parking lots.
While the Corolla is not an all-wheel-drive car, it has heated outside mirrors, seats, and a leather wrapped steering wheel. Two driving modes that include Eco and Sport work well with the 1.8L-four-cylinder engine that delivers and overall fuel average of 31 miles per gallon.
Well designed with a sleek body and Barcelona red metallic paint gives this Corolla an appearance of a much more expensive car than the $24,764 fully loaded package. This is one of the best all-around bargains of all driving reviews.
Along with being fully loaded with the best safety equipment, multiple air bags, four-wheel disk brakes, this car is nimble and can really move down the highway with the excellent continuous variable six-speed transmission. I really enjoyed driving this car and give it an excellent rating.
The sound system is very easy to adjust with knobs control volume and stations, sometime high-tech and screen controls take too much driver attention and eyes away from the roads.
Bottom line, this is a sweet small car with above average acceleration, very good gasoline mileage, loaded with safety equipment, and all of the latest high-tech hand’s free technology.
This is the real package at a very competitive price.
