The Toyota Corolla S is a little car that is both stylish and inexpensive, and it comes with a tonne of standard active safety measures.
The Toyota Corolla S offers a pleasant ride quality and sporty models of its own, despite competitors like the Honda Civic and Mazda 3 having a more enjoyable driving experience.
A manual transmission is available on a few versions, and the sedan comes with a hybrid drivetrain that is incredibly fuel-efficient.
Even so, many buyers continue to favour the Toyota Corolla S, particularly those who value flair and security.
The LE Hybrid adds a Premium interior option that includes heated front seats, a power adjustable driver's seat with lumbar support, leatherette upholstery,
Ruby Flare and Windchill Pearl are two new paint options for the sedan, and Finish Line Red is now an option for the hatchback.
It also comes with a manual transmission and a sport-tuned suspension that makes driving the Corolla S more enjoyable than with the standard setup.
The list also features front sport seats, a steering wheel with leather upholstery, 18-inch alloys, and an 8.0-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
The Corolla sedan employs a 139-hp 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine that drives the front wheels via a continuously variable automatic transmission, with the exception of the sportier SE and XSE variants (CVT)
Both the hatchback and the Toyota Corolla S feature a smooth ride that effectively isolates all but the biggest bumps.
With a more rigid sport-tuned suspension and the latter's larger 18-inch wheels, the Toyota Corolla SE and XSE further distinguish themselves from one another.
Both Corolla body styles' brake pedals were trustworthy and simple to use, even though neither one performed well in our 70 mph to zero braking test (requiring between 174 and 183 feet).
In contrast, the government predicts that the 2.0-liter engine in the non-hybrid Toyota Corolla S sedan would achieve up to 40 mpg on the highway, while the 1.8-liter is predicted to achieve up to 38 mpg on the highway.
Push-button start and passive entry are standard on most models. Ambient inside lighting, dual-zone climate control, and heated front seats are further options for others.
A touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and a pay-per-use Wi-Fi hotspot is standard on every Toyota Corolla S.
