2007 Toyota Corolla Ce: Though it hasn't undertaken a considerable redesign because the 2003 design year, the Corolla remains one of the very successful autos in the U.S. Just what's so enticing regarding this compact? For beginners, the Corolla obtains exceptional gas mileage. It's likewise active. Perhaps more important to purchasers seeking inexpensive transport is the Corolla's outstanding integrity. The Corolla's inside, nevertheless, is starting to reveal its age.

Outside & Styling

In the world of compact vehicles, designing is increasingly becoming extra daring. See the futuristic front end of the Honda Civic as well as the brutish look of Dodge's Caliber. With its unmemorable looks, the Corolla has neither of these autos' blowing, which could or might not be a good thing, depending on your preferences. (The Corolla is due for a redesign in the next few years, as well as-- if the redesign of Toyota's 2007 Camry is anything to go by-- might get a more distinctive exterior then.) Regardless, closing the Corolla's doors generates a reassuring "thunk" that suggests a high-end-- rather than an economic situation-- automobile.

All versions have conventional 15-inch steel wheels, though LE models can have 15-inch alloy wheels as well as the Corolla S can have 15- or 16-inch alloy wheels. A looter is optional for the S.

Trip & Handling

A lot of my time behind the wheel of the Corolla was spent on Chicago's roads and highways. With these roads' continuous blockage, it didn't take long to find how achieved this car remains in heavy traffic.

Though the taut suspension does little to remove bumps and pits, the Corolla is really manoeuvrable. The flight obtains a little bit choppy on the freeway, with a lot of backwards and forwards suspension motions, but body roll is successfully controlled when cornering. Front and back stabilizer bars are conventional.

Going & Preventing

With the discontinuation of the high-output XRS, the single engine for the 2007 Corolla is a 1.8-liter four-cylinder that makes 126 horse power and also 122 pounds-feet of torque. A five-speed manual transmission is conventional as well as a four-speed automatic is optional. EPA gas mileage price quotes are 32/41 mpg (city/highway) for hand-operated designs; quotes go down to 30/38 with the transmission.

While the Corolla's engine has substantially reduced result when compared with much of the competition, it gives totally appropriate efficiency on city as well as suburban roadways. It's only on the highway that the engine's small power ratings limit the Corolla's performance; the automatic-transmission Corolla I tested only had a marginal amount of power for fast death. The smooth-shifting automatic kicks down rapidly when hired, however the act causes a substantial quantity of engine noise as the four-cylinder increases the rpms.

Corollas have front-disc and also rear-drum brakes that supply straight quiting performance. Anti-skid brakes are optional.

The In

The driving position is a bit confined for motorists greater than 6 feet tall, however this schedules even more to absence of rearward adjustability in the motorist's seat than to the cabin being excessively little. With the vehicle driver's seat readjusted as best as feasible for somebody tall, the steering wheel is a little bit of a reach, and it does not telescope making driving less complicated. The dashboard stereo controls are instead far. While much shorter drivers most likely will not experience these problems, if you're taller you'll want to pay special focus on the cabin's comfort designs throughout your test drive.

The Corolla's control panel plastic has nice-looking graining, and the controls are realistically arranged. Most panels fit snugly together, and also the high-level LE version has decent-looking imitation wood trim. The LE's towel seats and also cloth door-panel inserts feel and look dated when compared to newer rivals, and that's prior to you consider the Corolla's premium prices in its sector.

Even though it would certainly be nice if the pole positions returned farther, their restricted traveling maintains some space for rear passengers, where legroom for the tall is limited yet general convenience is satisfactory. I would not intend to be stuck back there for more than a few hours, though. Once again, resident dimension can largely affect convenience, and also much shorter travelers could find it entirely acceptable, also for lengthy journeys.


The Corolla obtained an Excellent total score in the Insurance coverage Institute for Freeway Safety's frontal-offset crash examination. It gained an Acceptable general ranking in the IIHS' side-impact examination when geared up with the optional side-impact air bags for the front seats as well as front as well as rear side curtain airbags. Without those $655 airbags, the Corolla's overall side-impact rating drops to Poor, so you must consider them a requirement.

Other optional security attributes consist of antilock brakes with digital brake-force distribution as well as a digital stability system that's offered for automatic-transmission S and LE designs.

Freight & Towing

The Corolla's 13.6-cubic-foot trunk is relatively huge for a compact sedan, as well as it has a broad opening to alleviate gain access to. Folding up the typical 60/40-split back seats is completed by using two wisely positioned handles near the top of the trunk. The extensive lots flooring isn't really entirely level, nevertheless; there's a walk in between the folded up seatbacks and the trunk floor.

Toyota says the Corolla can tow up to 1,500 extra pounds when properly geared up.


A/c, a CD stereo, power-adjustable side mirrors as well as a temperature level gauge are basic. The S models include rocker panels and also front and also back underbody looters to the exterior and also a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shifter, different gauges, power door locks and indoor chrome trim. The high-level LE adds power home windows, keyless entrance and dynamic electroluminescent evaluates that are simple to review. Cruise ship control, a moonroof and also a JBL stereo with an in-dash six-CD changer are optional.

Corolla on the market

The Corolla is evidence that-- as long as the fundamentals are there-- strong sales typically aren't contingent on having the most recent, snazziest version. Though its interior is behind the times even for an economic climate vehicle, it's difficult to suggest with the Corolla's sales: More than 200,000 have actually been sold through September of 2006, and that's in the face of fresh competitors in the form of the redesigned Honda Civic. That's an excellent success for an aging model, even one with the Corolla's exemplary reliability history.
