Toyota Corolla 2016 Review

Toyota Corolla 2016 Review: The 2016 Toyota Corolla is this year's version of cars and truck that has actually exemplified standard, trouble-free, and also reasonably comfy transport for 40 years now. And a brand-new effort to maintain its innovation up to date and include a minimum of a little bit of panache to the layout has actually made it a lot more appealing. While the current variation isn't just what you may call charming, it's even more interesting and interesting that its anodyne predecessors in earlier generations.

For 2016, there are basically no changes to the Corolla, save for a new Special Edition based upon the flashy Corolla S with CVT. Only 8,000 will be sold, in 3 shades made use of just on this version. They feature unique gloss-black 17-inch alloy wheels, a black interior with red comparison sewing and also red dashboard and also door accents, keyless ignition with the Smartkey system, as well as unique flooring mats as well as badges. The sole alternatives are the power moonroof and the Entune Premium Stereo with navigation as well as the app suite.

The company stepped up its video game when it launched the existing Corolla as a 2014 design. The portable four-door car that has been at or near the top of UNITED STATE sales graphes for decades got crisper, sportier looks, a quieter cabin, and also a healthy blob of the in-car technology today's small-car consumers anticipate. It's still priced low for the high worth it delivers, but now you could select the Corolla for reasons beyond the bottom line and also seeing your bucks.

Toyota Corolla 2016 Review

New for 2016

A brand-new Corolla Scandal sheet features special 17-inch gloss-black alloy wheels, keyless accessibility with push-button start, red contrast sewing in the cabin, red accents on the dashboard and also doors, and particular floormats and also badging.

The Corolla's Entune multimedia system adds Siri Eyes-Free Setting ability for compatible iPhones. Loafer Radio is a freshly readily available application for Entune.


While its designers have been obtaining extra bold, in some cases to strange result, the 2016 Toyota Corolla car plays it safe. It has dropped a few of its old dowdiness for a couple of more touches of stylistic flair, yet it's still well-known as a Corolla-- and distinct from its predecessor, which the last one had not been.

Toyota calls the appearance more sports, and also claims it's an instance of "Iconic Dynamism"-- make from that just what you will. We see bits as well as pieces of various other portable cars in both its total form and a few of the finer details. Acquired Dynamism could be a lot more precise, yet that's not truly a put-down. The current model does just what it has to while preventing the common look of numerous previous Corollas.

Its longer wheelbase brings the wheels closer to the edges of the vehicle, which not just gives it extra interior room yet makes it a little bit sportier. The layout is rounded off with new details like LED headlamps and running lamps. If the cars and truck has a blacked-out grille, it's the sportier Corolla S model. Likewise, the LE as well as LE Eco designs currently have a grille that's more distinct from the base Corolla L design.

The Corolla's indoor takes on a two-tier control panel style that also contributes to the impression of indoor room, pushing the edges better from the front-seat passengers toward the base of the considerably raked windscreen. The dash surface area itself is a soft-touch material with molded-in sewing, along with a handful of subtle pinstriped accents in contrasting colors on the dash and door panels. It doesn't appear all that effective, yet somehow it encounters as fresh-- at the very least for a Corolla.

Base models have upholstery in a Steel Gray Material, while LE and LE Eco versions have actually an updated and also nicer fabric. The seats in the S models incorporate leather-like SofTex reinforces with coarse, color-toned materials in between. Behind the steering wheel, a three-dial gauge collection with silver accents is common on all models except the sportier S. That model obtains a collection with two determines flanking a 3.5-inch screen for various computer functions.


The 2016 Toyota Corolla provides a choice of two different 1.8-liter 4-cylinder engines, but efficiency has actually never ever been a major marketing point for Toyota's small car. Its buyers desire low running costs and value for their cash, and Toyota has actually prioritized those top qualities. Still, the present model is a bit a lot more fulfilling to drive compared to its precursors.

One engine powers the Corolla L, LE, and S designs. It's a base 1.8-liter inline-4 rated at 132 horsepower and also 128 pound-feet of torque. The LE Eco variation adds Valvematic to its 1.8-liter inline-4, which provides a wider series of constantly variable shutoff timing-- giving better gas economic climate as well as a boost to 140 horsepower.

The system allows the valves to "drift" during coasting, to decrease drag when light on the throttle at greater speeds. It additionally broadens the torque curve-- although peak torque is a bit lower at 126 lb-ft. So while it could have much more horse power on paper, do not anticipate the Eco version to really feel noticeably quicker.

The gearbox for mostly all Corollas offered in the States will certainly be a constantly variable transmission (CVT), as well as Toyota has done an excellent task of tuning in an encouraging, almost straight feel throughout light as well as moderate acceleration. There's much less of the "drone'" that pesters CVTs used in some little cars, as well as the sportier S version gets an unique tune on its CVT that makes it behave similar to a 7-speed automatic, with substitute equipment ratios and paddle shifters behind the leather-trimmed wheel to allow chauffeurs click through them at will.

The CVT vehicles really feel dull from a standing start-- particularly when pointed slightly uphill or packed with travelers-- due to their high beginning proportion. Yet freeway passing response is much enhanced, as well as they really feel perkier once underway as compared to the automatic they replace. Toyota claims it's knocked almost a second off the 0-to-60-mph time provided by the previous Corolla's 4-speed transmission.

The base Corolla L, nonetheless, is still saddled with that ancient 4-speed automatic. It's sluggish when you require a quick ruptured of passing power, as a result of the vast actions between its proportions, and its gas economy scores are lower than those for CVT-equipped Corollas.

Finally, if you wish to change for yourself, the base L and also the sporty S version can be bought with a 6-speed manual transmission. The linkage isn't sport-sedan accurate and the throws are relatively long, yet the clutch uses up gently and naturally. That makes the unusual manual Corolla very easy to drive in stop-and-go traffic.

All Corolla models have a torsion-beam back suspension that places bushings at an inclined setting, reducing sound, resonance, and also cruelty and tightening up rear-end habits near the handling restriction-- as well as S designs maximize that.

The S, as a matter of fact, is the one you ought to select if you want to optimize your Corolla driving satisfaction. Its suspension tune is much more buttoned-down, rather as you might anticipate in a sport car-- and its unique Sport button firms up the guiding as well. The trip is firm yet absorptive and also well damped. Other versions in the schedule remain a bit springy and pillowy, with a ride that's not just a little softer however likewise a bit more busy (counter-intuitively) on anxious backroads.

Convenience & Quality

The 2016 Toyota Corolla sedan's 183-inch size and large rear seat location would have suited a mid-size sedan simply a couple of years ago. Its 2014 redesign got it almost 4 inches in wheelbase, and also a massive 5.1 inches a lot more leg area in the rear. 4 6-footers can ride in loved one comfort, which had not been a task feasible in previous Corolla generations.

The front seats are much more flexible and have longer paddings than before, making them as comfortable as seats in competing compacts, maybe more so. The driving position has actually a kicked back, "large auto" feel, and also Toyota has fitted cupholders in both front and also rear door panels, in addition to a pair in the center console for those ahead. All versions besides the base L obtain a back facility armrest with two built-in cupholders also.

In back, the functional rise in leg space is closer to 2 or 3 inches, and also head space has really dropped simply a little bit. Still, long-legged passengers can be comfy in the rear seats of a Corolla for the first time, without asking those in front to slide their seats onward. What betrays the Corolla as a compact is generally the slim rear seats-- which still won't comfortably fit three grownups across, even if legroom suffices.

Safety and security

The 2016 Toyota Corolla obtains suitable safety rankings, though they're not quite top-tier, as well as it's missing out on some of the innovative active-safety modern technology that also compact purchasers are beginning to expect.

The NHTSA gives the 2016 Corolla 5 star overall, its greatest rating, as well as five stars in every details examination except rollover, where it gets four from 5. In IIHS screening, nonetheless, last year's Corolla gained top "Excellent" scores in frontal, side, rear, and also roofing system stamina examinations-- however just a "Low" ranking in the new little overlap frontal test.

The current generation of Corolla comes with 8 air bags as standard equipment, consisting of a chauffeur's side knee bag as well as a front traveler seat cushion bag. That's in addition to driver as well as front passenger front and also side airbags, as well as side-curtain bags that cover outboard occupants front and also back.


The 2016 Toyota Corolla proceeds the same this year with 4 trim degrees: L, LE, S, and also the even more fuel-efficient LE Eco version.

All Corollas including the base L design feature typical air conditioning, LED low-beam fronts lights with LED daytime running lights, in-glass AM/FM antenna, color-keyed outdoors door takes care of and also mirrors, a 60/40-split fold-down back seat, and power locks, doors, and mirrors. The base version passes up automated climate control, cruise control, and also keyless entry. It's standard sufficient to have a 1960s-style steel ignition key, which is captivating in its own way.

However the old-school base audio head system (handles!) is not only fantastically straightforward-- missing the touchscreen, applications, etc-- however has extremely excellent sound, together with a display that can show even much longer track titles. Hands-free calling, Bluetooth pairing, an accessory sound jack, and USB/iPod connectivity (with charging and also full USB 2.0 compatibility) are additionally consisted of in all Corolla designs-- also the base L-- yet LE, S, and also LE Eco designs all consist of even more steering-wheel controls along with voice recognition.
