Driving Impression

Editor:
New Car Test Drive
“”

Like its appearance, the performance of a Corolla ranks as average in every area. Handling with confidence, the Corolla provides a safe and sufficient road experience.

Steering feels light, providing minimal feedback from the pavement, but that’s hardly uncommon in family-friendly compact sedans. Body lean can become evident when taking corners energetically. The ride is smooth and easygoing, though not remarkably soft or lavish. Sedan suspensions permit considerable wheel travel, which helps absorb bumps and pot holes.

Corolla engines exhibit a refined nature. For most owners, that’s more important than brisk responses to the gas pedal. Toyota’s continuously variable transmission tends to keep the engine at higher speeds much of the time, but acceleration is wholly adequate. Sufficient sound-deadening tones down most engine rumbling.

Expect a firmer ride from the iM hatchback, but few trouble spots on the road will jar Corolla passengers.

Fuel economy doesn’t lead the compact-sedan pack, but Corollas qualify as thrifty. EPA estimates for 2018 have not yet been issued, but 2017 figures hover around 30 mpg in combined driving. L and LE sedans with the CVT are EPA-rated at 28/36 mpg City/Highway, or 32 mpg Combined. Upper trim levels are a hair less frugal, due to bigger wheels. Manual shift in the SE earns an EPA rating of 27/35 mpg City/Highway, or 30 mpg Combined. The LE Eco is EPA-rated as high as 30/40/34 mpg.

The Corolla iM is EPA-rated at 27/35 mpg City/Highway, or 30 mpg Combined, with 6-speed manual, rising to 28/36/31 mpg with the CVT.

Walk Around

To many eyes, Corollas have a long history of uninspired appearance. That hasn’t kept tens of millions of motorists from driving one home. A bit awkward-looking overall, sedans have an uncommonly high ride height, with 6.7-inch ground clearance.

Corolla L and LE trim levels possess few decorative elements, and plastic hubcaps cover their steel wheels. Corolla SE and XSE models step up to alloy wheels.

More expressive styling is the province of the newer iM hatchback. In addition to a rather long roofline atop a bigger greenhouse, the iM benefits from details that impact a Eurostyle aura.

Interior Overview

“”

Comfortable seats, front and rear, highlight the Corolla sedan’s spacious cabin. Moderately bolstered, the front seats provide good support.

Legroom is good in the rear seat. Three passengers fit back there, but they’ll probably start to feel squeezed on a longer journey.

Despite a generally pleasing ambiance, nothing can be called luxurious within a Corolla, which contains an abundance of shiny plastic trim. Still, seat materials in most Corollas are attractive. Each Corolla has a height-adjustable driver’s seat, which is power-adjustable on top models. Synthetic leather used in upper models doesn’t feel real, but it doesn’t have to and should wear well.

All controls on the nearly-vertical dashboard are logical and easy to use. Contrasting stitching crosses the dashboard’s edges.

Though its dashboard is almost identical to the one in Corolla sedans, the iM’s infotainment system isn’t as neatly integrated into its surroundings.

Summary

Editor:

“”

All Corollas are capable and well-equipped, but no sedan qualifies as a stunning value. Plenty of competitors can match the Corolla’s practical virtues, while offering more character. Even so, a Corolla does it job competently. Only those who crave driving excitement even in a family car are likely to be displeased. Those folks would be advised to look at a Mazda 3 or Honda Civic.
