A Longtime Standard Bearer of Excellence

Corolla checks off every major must-have that compact car shoppers are looking for--reliability, safety, efficiency, affordability and more. Once again, the Corolla lineup offers two body styles, the standard sedan and iM hatchback, which debuted last year after the Scion brand was discontinued.

The iM is offered as one trim grade while the sedan can be had in numerous trims, including: Corolla L, Corolla LE, Corolla LE Eco, Corolla XLE, Corolla SE and Corolla XSE. Continue our 2018 Toyota Corolla review to learn more.

Standard Features on the Toyota Corolla

Corolla is the definition of value-packed with a bucket load of standard amenities. Base models get Bluetooth hands-free phone and audio streaming, Entune audio, a backup camera, Bi-LED headlamps, and USB and iPod connectivity, among other features. The best-selling model of the lineup, the Corolla LE, adds additional comforts for a low cost, including remote keyless entry, automatic climate control with dust and pollen filter, a 3-spoke steering wheel, upgraded interior fabric and color-keyed heated power outside mirrors.

LE Eco models stand out with the best fuel economy ratings in the group, while the XLE gains more luxury features, such as a smart key system with push button start, heated seats and a power tilt/slide moonroof with sliding sunshade. The Corolla SE is a great pick if you want a sporty look, which is achieved with a rear spoiler, gloss-black mesh-pattern grille, 17-inch machined alloy wheels with black-painted accents and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. The Corolla iM is similarly equipped to the SE.

Finally, the extra-sporty Corolla XSE gains or upgrades most of these features and adds premium amenities like steering wheel paddle shifters, Sport mode and a sport instrumentation cluster.
