The newly designed Toyota Corolla is sharp in looks and performance. The Toyota Aichi, Japan engineers and auto assemblers have produced a very competitive product in the $25,450 price range.
An eye-catching design, the “Blue Print” black paint and sleek lines imply a much higher price on this Corolla XSE new model.
It is amazing how much power a 2.0L four-cylinder engine can produce in performance and also fuel economy of 38 miles per gallon on highway driving. The XSE has steering wheel paddle shifters and sport mode and suspension systems. Disk brakes on all four-wheels.
The exterior mirrors are well designed and heated along with heated front seats. Only feature missing on this Corolla is four-wheel drive.
The sports seats are attractive and comfortable and radio controls easy to operate with easy dial options. Some of the latest audio systems have become very complicated and awkward to operate, especially while driving and taking eyes off the road. That’s where the new safety features come into place that prevent striking a forward object.
The Corolla has the sequential transmission that is so efficient in Toyota vehicles, giving the driver gear options for hill climbing or descending without having to use continuous braking.
Loaded with air bags, the Corolla has achieved a perfect five-star frontal crash rating.
Overall, this is a really fun car to drive, and small enough to park easily and still haul five passengers with a spacious trunk area.
The new model is now on show room floors, and is loaded with all of the latest safety features and excellent Toyota warranties.
Younger, first time car owners, will find this vehicle attractive: good performance, great fuel economy, with an affordable price.
