How Does the 2015 Toyota Corolla Compare to Other Compact Sedans?
Since a 2014 redesign, the Corolla has become one of the most affordable vehicles in its class while also including more convenience and comfort features. It trumps the Chevy Cruze and Ford Focus in affordability, fuel efficiency, interior quality and features.
What Features in the 2015 Toyota Corolla Are Most Important?
The 2015 Toyota Corolla is powered by a 132-horsepower, 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine paired with a six-speed manual transmission or a 140-hp, 1.8-liter four-cylinder working with a continuously variable automatic transmission in the LE Eco trim. All Corollas have front-wheel drive. Significant standard features include active front head restraints, a tilt/telescoping steering wheel with accessory controls, a 60/40-split folding rear seat, front bucket seats, traction control, a driver-side knee airbag, side curtain airbags, and a CD stereo with iPod connectivity, an MP3 jack and Bluetooth streaming audio. As is required in all new cars, all Corollas include front airbags, antilock brakes and an electronic stability system.
Notable available features include a backup camera, cruise control, a power moonroof, navigation with app integration, fog lights, push-button start, a touchscreen stereo and automatic climate control.
Should I Buy the 2015 Toyota Corolla?
The Corolla is a better choice for shoppers who appreciate fuel economy and want spacious legroom in the rear, higher quality materials and appealing cabin design. If too much noise and too little trunk space are an issue for you, however, the Corolla might not be the right choice; its trunk is on the smaller side, and both wind and road noise intrude at higher speeds.
