“If you’re looking for a small sedan that covers the basics well, the 2017 Toyota Corolla is a smart choice. Several competitors deliver more thrills from the driver seat, but a sensible blend of space, fuel economy, and value give the Corolla broad appeal.”

Powered by a 1.8L four-cylinder engine, the 2017 Corolla is capable of putting out up to 140 hp. What’s really praiseworthy about this model is its impressive fuel economy ratings, coming in at up to an EPA-estimated 40 mpg highway and 30 mpg city on the available LE ECO trim level.

U.S. News and World Report

“The Toyota Corolla has top-notch predicted reliability, advanced safety features that few other compact cars can match, good fuel economy, and a comfortable interior. With that kind of practical, everyday appeal, it’s no wonder that Toyota sells just over a million Corollas worldwide each year.”

  • Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection
  • Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist
  • Automatic High Beams
  • Dynamic Radar Cruise Control

Kelley Blue Book
