About Toyota Corolla
The first Toyota Corolla, a small rear-drive subcompact, was introduced in the United States in the late 1960s; by the 1970s, the second-generation model was the best-selling import in the country, and new Corollas have been introduced every four or five years since. The 2010 Corolla, now in its tenth generation, is slightly longer, lower, and wider than the previous generation, and features class-leading engineering improvements. The Corolla has grown in size and features over time, with each generation being better than the one before it, and the 2010 model certainly maintains that standard. However, it competes in a market segment with some very tough, excellent competition from Japan, Korea, and the United States, and savvy buyers have plenty of options for their automotive dollars. Long-term reliability, great fuel economy, a pleasant ownership experience, and excellent resale value are expected strengths of the Corolla, as with many Toyota products.
The Toyota Corolla is an excellent choice for shoppers looking for a basic sedan that will get them to and from work or school. Its standard 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine has decent acceleration and good fuel economy ratings of up to 26/35 mpg city/highway, according to test drivers. The Corolla also comes with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine, which reviewers say is noticeably more powerful than the base engine.
The Corolla has good cargo space and comfortable front and rear seats, according to reviewers. It has air conditioning and a four-speaker stereo, which is adequate for the class, but some of its competitors include an auxiliary input jack as well as power windows and door locks on the base model. Power windows and door locks, keyless entry, cruise control, steering-wheel mounted audio, Bluetooth and cruise controls, navigation, and an upgraded stereo with MP3 playback capability and satellite radio are all available on higher trims and option packages. The Corolla comes standard with a slew of safety features, including electronic stability control, traction control, anti-lock brakes, electronic brake-force distribution, and brake assist.
