2007 toyota Corolla S

2007 Toyota Corolla S: Though it hasn't already undergone a substantial redesign given that the 2003 design year, the Corolla stays among the very popular cars in the U.S. Just what's so appealing about this compact? For beginners, the Corolla obtains extraordinary gas mileage. It's also dexterous. Probably more important to buyers searching for inexpensive transportation is the Corolla's outstanding reliability. The Corolla's interior, nonetheless, is beginning to reveal its age.

2007 Toyota Corolla S

Exterior & Styling

Worldwide of small cars and trucks, styling is progressively becoming a lot more bold. Observe the advanced front end of the Honda Civic and the brutish look of Dodge's Quality. With its unmemorable appearances, the Corolla has neither of these cars and trucks' blowing, which could or might not be a good idea, depending on your tastes. (The Corolla is due for a redesign in the following couple of years, and-- if the redesign of Toyota's 2007 Camry is anything to pass-- may obtain a more unique outside then.) No matter, closing the Corolla's doors produces an assuring "thunk" that suggests a luxury-- instead of an economic situation-- auto.

All designs have standard 15-inch steel wheels, though LE models can have 15-inch alloy wheels as well as the Corolla S could have 15- or 16-inch alloy wheels. A spoiler is optional for the S.

Trip & Handling

A lot of my time behind the wheel of the Corolla was spent on Chicago's roads as well as highways. With these roadways' continuous congestion, it didn't take long to discover just how completed this auto remains in rush hour.

Though the tight suspension does little to filter out bumps as well as holes, the Corolla is extremely maneuverable. The trip obtains a little bit uneven on the highway, with a lot of up and down suspension activities, but body roll is effectively controlled when cornering. Front as well as back stabilizer bars are common.

Going & Preventing

With the discontinuation of the high-output XRS, the sole engine for the 2007 Corolla is a 1.8-liter four-cylinder that makes 126 horsepower and also 122 pounds-feet of torque. A five-speed manual transmission is typical and a four-speed automated is optional. EPA gas mileage estimates are 32/41 mpg (city/highway) for manual models; price quotes drop to 30/38 with the automatic transmission.

While the Corolla's engine has significantly reduced result when compared with much of the competitors, it offers entirely acceptable efficiency on city as well as country roadways. It's only on the freeway that the engine's modest power rankings restrict the Corolla's efficiency; the automatic-transmission Corolla I checked just had a minimal quantity of power for quick passing away. The smooth-shifting automated kicks down rapidly when called upon, but the act induces a considerable amount of engine noise as the four-cylinder increases the rpms.

Corollas have front-disc and rear-drum brakes that give straight stopping performance. Anti-skid brakes are optional.

The In

The driving setting is a little bit cramped for vehicle drivers greater than 6 feet high, however this is due even more to absence of rearward adjustability in the vehicle driver's seat than to the cabin being excessively small. With the chauffeur's seat changed as best as possible for a person tall, the steering wheel is a little a reach, and also it doesn't telescope to earn driving less complicated. The control panel stereo controls are instead away. While shorter vehicle drivers most likely will not experience these issues, if you're taller you'll want to pay unique attention to the cabin's ergonomics during your test drive.

The Corolla's dashboard plastic has nice-looking graining, and the controls are logically set up. Most panels fit firmly with each other, as well as the top-level LE model has decent-looking replica wood trim. The LE's towel seats as well as fabric door-panel inserts look and feel dated when compared with more recent competitors, which's before you take into consideration the Corolla's costs rates in its sector.

Despite the fact that it would certainly be nice if the front seats went back further, their limited traveling maintains some area for rear travelers, where legroom for the tall is restricted but total comfort is satisfactory. I wouldn't intend to be stuck back there for more than a couple of hrs, though. Once more, resident dimension can greatly influence convenience, and much shorter travelers could locate it completely appropriate, even for lengthy trips.

Safety and security

The Corolla received a Great total ranking in the Insurance coverage Institute for Highway Safety's frontal-offset accident test. It gained an Appropriate overall score in the IIHS' side-impact examination when furnished with the optional side-impact air bags for the front seats and front as well as rear side curtain air bags. Without those $655 air bags, the Corolla's total side-impact score drops to Poor, so you need to consider them a need.

Other optional safety features include antilock brakes with electronic brake-force circulation and a digital security system that's readily available for automatic-transmission S and LE versions.

Cargo & Towing

The Corolla's 13.6-cubic-foot trunk is relatively big for a small sedan, and also it has a broad opening to ease accessibility. Folding up the standard 60/40-split rear seats is accomplished by using 2 wisely positioned handles near the top of the trunk. The prolonged load floor isn't really entirely flat, nonetheless; there's a walk between the folded up seatbacks and also the trunk flooring.

Toyota says the Corolla can tow approximately 1,500 extra pounds when properly furnished.


A/c, a CD stereo, power-adjustable side mirrors as well as a temperature level gauge are common. The S designs add rocker panels and front as well as rear underbody spoilers to the exterior as well as a leather-wrapped wheel and shifter, various gauges, power door locks and interior chrome trim. The high-level LE includes power home windows, keyless access as well as lively electroluminescent evaluates that are easy to check out. Cruise control, a moonroof as well as a JBL audio system with an in-dash six-CD changer are optional.

Corolla in the marketplace

The Corolla is evidence that-- as long as the fundamentals exist-- solid sales aren't subject to having the most recent, snazziest version. Though its interior is behind the moments even for an economic climate vehicle, it's hard to argue with the Corolla's sales: More than 200,000 have actually been offered through September of 2006, which's in the face of fresh competition through the redesigned Honda Civic. That's an excellent achievement for an aging design, even one with the Corolla's excellent reliability history.
