Small sedan shoppers will undeniably find the new 2017 Toyota Corolla a compelling choice thanks to its blend of versatility, fuel economy, value, and features. The Toyota Corolla release date should be expected sometime in the second quarter of 2017, at least according to sources privacy of the model’s development.
Review In A Nutshell
Additionally, the vehicle boasts of user-friendly controls, copious rear legroom, and a pleasant ride quality. For starters, the new model is the freshest model to add to the existing line of top-selling small Toyota sedans which first debuted in the automotive scene in late ‘60’s.
There is no doubt that the Corolla receives a little of respect from most car reviewers, most will tell you, “Where is the flair and excitement? It’s simply a soulless appliance!” Even with such cynical comments, the Corolla has had a successful streak in the market for almost fifty years, and is now in its 11th generation.
For 2017, Toyota aims to continue shepherding the Corolla by making it another crowd-pleasing choice. Once you’re on the move, the ride quality is complaint, comfortable, and appealing. There is a plethora of features and technologies available on the infotainment system, which according to Toyota, has been improved and is now more easy-to-use and more responsive than ever before.
For Responsible, Not For Wild
We also love the copious rear leg-room it offers relative to other vehicles in its class. Throw in the high-resale value and laudable fuel economy ratings and there’s no doubt the new Corolla is an excellent option in its class.
However, if driver-engagement is your thing, then it’d be prudent to check out other vehicles in its class. They include the 2017 Honda Civic, the 2017 Mazda 3, Ford Focus, and the sporty Hyundai Elantra.
