Crossovers may be all the rage, and the new Toyota Camry has been getting attention for its extensive redesign, but Corolla remains the best-selling Toyota nameplate of all time. Now in its 52nd year of production, Corolla got a redesign of its own for the last model year. New upgrades for 2018 include illuminated visor vanity mirrors on all models and steering wheel upgrades for XLE and SE grade levels. Royal Palm Toyota wants you to check it out today.
Part of Corolla’s success can be attributed to its variety of trims, six in all, that cover the gamut of tastes and needs. Models include L, LE, LE Eco, XLE, SE, and XSE. What they all have in common is a sporty, sophisticated look, a quiet ride, and comfort that rivals what you find in larger sedans.
In fact, Corolla compares very favorably with Toyota sibling Camry in several areas. Pricewise, a top-line Corolla will cost a bit less than a basic Camry. And Corolla’s redesign includes a standard suite of safety features.
Even the most basic Corolla, the L trim level, is well equipped with the features that today’s drivers find most desirable: USB connectivity, backup camera, Bluetooth, power windows and locks, split folding seats, and Entune Audio with a 6.1-inch display screen. The most popular trim, LE, gets remote keyless entry and upgraded interior materials. There’s no compromising on comfort or convenience with the Corolla.
All Corollas are powered by a four-cylinder engine to achieve combined fuel economy ratings in the low 30s. Similarly powered Camrys rate a bit higher in highway MPG, but if you opt for a V-6 to move the larger Camry, Corolla becomes the clear winner. Corolla is slightly smaller than Camry but still provides ample room for passengers and cargo.
If you’re looking for all the style and comfort of a Camry but looking to save a little money, the Corolla is worth a drive. Visit Royal Palm Toyota to compare for yourself.
