2007 Toyota Corolla: Though it hasn't undergone a substantial redesign since the 2003 version year, the Corolla continues to be one of the very popular cars and trucks in the United States Just what's so attractive about this compact? For starters, the Corolla gets outstanding gas mileage. It's also agile. Perhaps more important to customers trying to find low-cost transport is the Corolla's impressive reliability. The Corolla's inside, nonetheless, is beginning to show its age.

Outside & Designing

In the world of portable cars and trucks, designing is progressively becoming a lot more daring. See the advanced front end of the Honda Civic and the brutish appearance of Dodge's Caliber. With its unmemorable looks, the Corolla has neither of these cars and trucks' bravado, which might or might not be a good thing, depending upon your tastes. (The Corolla is due for a redesign in the following few years, and also-- if the redesign of Toyota's 2007 Camry is anything to pass-- might obtain a much more distinctive exterior then.) Regardless, shutting the Corolla's doors generates a comforting "thunk" that recommends a high-end-- in contrast to an economy-- auto.

All versions have basic 15-inch steel wheels, though LE models could have 15-inch alloy wheels and also the Corolla S could have 15- or 16-inch alloy wheels. A spoiler is optional for the S.

Ride & Handling

Most of my time behind the wheel of the Corolla was invested in Chicago's roads as well as highways. With these roads' perpetual congestion, it really did not take lengthy to discover just how completed this vehicle is in heavy traffic.

Though the tight suspension does little to strain bumps and also splits, the Corolla is very manoeuvrable. The flight gets a little bit rough on the freeway, with a great deal of backwards and forwards suspension movements, yet body roll is efficiently managed when cornering. Front and also back stabilizer bars are conventional.

Going & Ending

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 as well as 122 pounds-feet of torque. A five-speed manual transmission is common and a four-speed automated is optional. EPA gas mileage estimates are 32/41 mpg (city/highway) for manual designs; quotes go down to 30/38 with the transmission.

While the Corolla's engine has substantially lower outcome when compared with much of the competition, it gives entirely appropriate efficiency on city and suburban roads. It's just on the freeway that the engine's moderate power scores restrict the Corolla's efficiency; the automatic-transmission Corolla I checked only had a minimal amount of power for fast passing. The smooth-shifting automatic kicks down quickly when hired, however the act induces a significant quantity of engine sound as the four-cylinder ramps up the rpms.

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

The Within

The driving setting is a bit confined for chauffeurs more than 6 feet high, but this is due more to absence of rearward adjustability in the driver's seat than to the cabin being excessively small. With the chauffeur's seat changed as best as feasible for a person high, the steering wheel is a little bit of a reach, and also it doesn't telescope to earn driving much easier. The control panel stereo controls are rather away. While shorter motorists likely will not experience these concerns, if you're taller you'll wish to pay unique focus on the cabin's functional designs during your examination drive.

The Corolla's control panel plastic has nice-looking graining, and the controls are realistically set up. Many panels fit tightly together, and also the high-level LE model has decent-looking imitation wood trim. The LE's towel seats as well as cloth door-panel inserts look dated when as compared to more recent competitors, which's before you think about the Corolla's costs rates in its segment.

Even though it would certainly be nice if the pole positions returned further, their limited travel maintains some room for back passengers, where legroom for the high is restricted yet total convenience is satisfactory. I wouldn't wish to be stuck back there for greater than a few hrs, though. Once more, resident size could largely affect comfort, and also shorter guests may locate it entirely acceptable, even for lengthy trips.


The Corolla received an Excellent overall score in the Insurance policy Institute for Freeway Safety and security's frontal-offset accident examination. It gained an Acceptable overall rating in the IIHS' side-impact examination when furnished with the optional side-impact airbags for the front seats and front as well as rear side curtain airbags. Without those $655 airbags, the Corolla's overall side-impact rating goes down to Poor, so you must consider them a necessity.

Other optional safety and security attributes include anti-skid brakes with digital brake-force circulation and a digital stability system that's available for automatic-transmission S and LE designs.

Cargo & Towing

The Corolla's 13.6-cubic-foot trunk is fairly large for a small car, as well as it has a broad opening to ease accessibility. Folding up the conventional 60/40-split rear seats is completed using 2 wisely located handles near the top of the trunk. The prolonged tons flooring isn't totally flat, nevertheless; there's a step in between the folded up seatbacks as well as the trunk floor.

Toyota says the Corolla could tow approximately 1,500 extra pounds when appropriately equipped.


Air conditioning, a CD stereo, power-adjustable side mirrors as well as a temperature level gauge are typical. The S versions include rocker panels as well as front and also back underbody looters to the exterior and a leather-wrapped wheel and also shifter, different gauges, power door locks as well as interior chrome trim. The top-level LE adds power home windows, keyless entrance as well as dynamic electroluminescent gauges that are easy to review. Cruise ship control, a moonroof as well as 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 basics exist-- strong sales aren't subject to having the latest, snazziest version. Though its interior lags the times even for an economy automobile, it's hard to argue with the Corolla's sales: Greater than 200,000 have actually been sold via September of 2006, which remains in the face of fresh competitors through the redesigned Honda Civic. That's an outstanding accomplishment for an aging design, even one with the Corolla's exemplary reliability background.
