Review Toyota Corolla
Corolla. A small car has been a part of our local car landscape since 1967. It’s an Australian favorite, and for the past four years, the nation’s number one selling car.
Not many cars can come close to making such a request – for such a long and successful run. Corolla is a car equivalent of Neighbors, only about more than two decades.
Corolla was so famous that I didn’t even mention it was a Toyota because I didn’t need it, you know what it was – it had achieved single-name statuses like Elvis, Madonna and Oprah.
It did not happen by chance. Corolla has gained reputation for being reliable, good value and well built. But many things have changed after 50 years and the small car segment is full of great services from Mazda3 to Hyundai i30. So, how does the latest Corolla incarnation form against competitors?
You will learn in this review including the hatch and sedan versions of Corolla.
Is there anything interesting about its design? 6/10
It seems that peace in the Middle East is an easier goal than making an affordable small car look beautiful, going by having very little on the road. Mazda3 sedan is by far the most beautiful, Corolla is not. Your mind is a looker, even if this model is in its age – it debuted in 2012, and Toyota has kept things fresh for years with makeup on both sedans and hatches.
The sizes show the size difference of the hatch compared to the sedan. This car measures 4620mm from front to rear bumpers, 1775mm wide and 1460mm high, compared to the hatch version making it 290mm longer, 15mm wider but 15mm shorter in stature.
The exterior may look different, but the interior of this vehicle is nearly identical to the hatch, as you can see in the image. There is a radiating panel and a cleanly designed center console, clear instrument cluster and a premium and mature feel. The internal dimensions of this vehicle show the front pair distance (front passenger side, rear passenger side) of 960mm, while the hatch opening is 900mm.
The 7.0-inch touchscreen is added in the most recent update to modernize the cabin and the use of dark, high-quality materials makes everything stylish. There is also the appearance of a good fit and finish in every variant.
All hatches come standard with a rear spoiler on the roof, but the SX and ZR have tough-looking body kits with side skirts, a front spoiler and a ‘diffuser’ rear. Our ZR hatch test vehicle comes with ‘Glacier White’ paint, which is a free option, and I think it looks best when paired with super dark rear windows and color elements. black for the upper and lower grille.
The hatch’s design is much more attractive than the sedan, but there are those who will look for the mature appeal of a sedan.
There are seven other colors to choose from including ‘Inferno’ (burnt orange), ‘Blue Gem’, ‘Citrus’, ‘Crystal Pearl’, ‘Silver Pearl’ (okay, gray), ‘Ink’ (of course the colors black) and ‘Wildfire’ are red. There is no green.
By the way, the only Toyota you can have in green, apart from the ‘C-HR of Teal Electric (not counting) is the Kluger. That is the ‘Rain Forest’. Be a diva and ask Toyota to paint your Corolla in it, and let me know how you go. Premium paint costs 450 USD.
Yes, the hatch’s design is much more attractive than the sedan, but there are people who will go for the mature appeal of a sedan.
How realistic is the inner space? 7/10
This is important. How would you use your Corolla? Would it be mostly you driving alone, or would you use it to take family ferries or friends around regularly? Are you someone like me, buying furniture and then trying to bring it home in the car, only to find it inappropriate?
First, the rear legroom of this car is much better than the hatch. I was 191cm tall and there was a gap of five centimeters between my knee and the seat when I was behind my driving position in the car, but my knee touched the seat in the tunnel.
Then, just when you think this car is the best for the giants, you will find better rear space in the basement than the convertible – my head skimmed through the room in the convertible. private.
All Corollas are five seats, but that middle seat will be cramped for adults.
