The Toyota Corolla is a popular sedan that competes with the Honda Civic and other compacts. Priced from $18,550, the Corolla is slotted above the subcompact Toyota Yaris and below the midsize Toyota Camry in the brand’s lineup. The Corolla is a basic and reliable choice, but not very engaging. As an efficient commuter car it does its job well, however this might not be the best choice to take on a long road trip.
Pros: Efficient, Low Price, Roomy Interior, Durable, Standard Advanced Safety Features
Cons: Boring Inside & Out, Not Engaging To Drive, Excessive Road Noise
Looks Best In: Blizzard Pearl exterior/Almond interior
Competition: Honda Civic, Chevrolet Cruze, Nissan Sentra, Volkswagen Jetta, Kia Forte
Safety Score: The 2018 Toyota Corolla was awarded the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s Top Safety Pick distinction.
Summary: Basic and reliable, the Toyota Corolla is a safe, if unexciting, choice. Toyota Safety Sense is a standout standard safety feature suite that includes a pre-collision system with pedestrian detection and other advanced safety features as standard. These items are either optional or not available on many competitors. For a more engaging driving experience check out the Honda Civic.
