A compact sedan with everything you could need - and want
MSRP from $18,550
When it comes to the smaller sedans on the market, most people expect to find a few specific capabilities. The first ability at the top of the priority list is typically fuel economy, and although efficiency is one of the most sought-after talents, safety and performance are usually listed immediately after. With the Toyota Corolla, you can check all three of those off the list of wants. With a highway fuel economy rating of 37 mpg, you can get where you need to go for less, and with as much as 140 horsepower available, you can rest assured that getting there will be a thrill. As far as safety goes, you have nothing to be worried about. The Corolla comes standard with eight airbags—a number that makes it easy to drive with confidence.
One of the most appealing features of the Corolla is the available Sport Mode, which can provide you with increased performance at the touch of a button. When activated, a number of powertrain components are instantaneously adjusted, providing you with a much sportier driving experience. Better hold onto your hat.
Although the fuel economy of the Corolla is impressive on its own, there are a few systems in place that help to boost those ratings even further. That includes a continuously-variable transmission that helps the compact car to run smoother, and therefore more efficient, as well as a money-saving ECO driving mode.
Most compact cars fall a bit short when it comes to safety, as their small size often clashes with the laws of physics. In the Corolla, however, there are eight airbags and various safety features that help keep those airbags from ever deploying. You and your passengers are always protected in the Toyota Corolla.
