The Toyota Corolla is an efficient compact sedan with lots of features. To show drivers in Ithaca, Elmira, and Binghamton what it has to offer, Maguire Toyota put together a series of Toyota Corolla reviews. 


The Toyota Corolla offers several sporty engines, including an efficient hybrid option. The most balanced powertrain is a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine. It delivers an exciting drive with 169 horsepower and 151 lb-ft of torque. It's designed to run smoothly with Valvematic technology. This helps it get up to an EPA-estimated 31 MPG city and 40 MPG highway.i

Front-wheel drive is standard on every trim level. You'll have a choice between a 6-speed Intelligent Manual Transmission and a Dynamic-Shift Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT). Paddle shifters are available with the CVT, so you can choose when you want to switch between manual and automatic.

Regardless of which engine you're interested in, the Toyota Corolla will provide you with a fun drive. Its aerodynamic design gives it a 0.29 drag coefficient, while its tight turning diameter lets it pull a curb-to-curb circle of only 35.6 feet.


Inside the Toyota Corolla, you'll find seating for up to five people. Cloth seats come standard, while stylish SofTex® seats are also available. When you're behind the wheel, you and your copilot can enjoy 42 inches of legroom. Passengers in the back will also have space to stretch out with 34.8 inches of legroom.

There are comfortable amenities throughout the cabin too. A leather-wrapped steering wheel is available, along with a power moonroof. To help you relax, you can add features like power-adjustable front seats, climate control, ambient lighting, and heated front seats.

Up on the dashboard, you'll see a sleek touchscreen display for the infotainment system. It features Bluetooth® compatibility, so you can stream music and make hands-free calls. You can also use this screen to check behind you using the integrated backup camera.

Trim Levels

There are eight trim levels to choose from. Whichever Toyota Corolla you're interested in, you'll have peace of mind during your drive with eight airbags and standard Toyota Safety Sense™ 2.0.

The base trim starts things off with a basic 1.8L 4-cylinder engine, while the Corolla LE adds technology like a more user-friendly infotainment system. The Corolla XLE enhances the cabin with SofTex® upholstery and a leather steering wheel.

The 2.0L 4-cylinder engine comes standard in the Corolla SE. It also offers a choice between the CVT or manual transmission. For a bold design, the SE Nightshade Edition features sleek black highlights all over. Finally, the Toyota Corolla XSE adds even more amenities and safety features, while the Corolla Hybrid lets you drive farther on a single tank of gas.
