2007 toyota Corolla Le

2007 Toyota Corolla Le: Though it hasn't undergone a significant redesign considering that the 2003 model year, the Corolla continues to be among the best-selling cars and trucks in the U.S. Just what's so appealing concerning this compact? For beginners, the Corolla obtains phenomenal gas mileage. It's additionally dexterous. Perhaps more vital to purchasers looking for cost-effective transport is the Corolla's impressive reliability. The Corolla's interior, however, is starting to reveal its age.

Outside & Styling

On the planet of compact vehicles, designing is progressively coming to be a lot more daring. Observe the futuristic 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 may or might not be a good idea, depending on your preferences. (The Corolla is due for a redesign in the next couple of years, as well as-- if the redesign of Toyota's 2007 Camry is anything to pass-- could obtain a much more distinct outside after that.) No matter, shutting the Corolla's doors produces a reassuring "thunk" that recommends a high-end-- instead of an economic situation-- car.

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

Flight & Handling

A lot of my time behind the wheel of the Corolla was invested in Chicago's streets as well as highways. With these roadways' continuous congestion, it really did not take long to discover how completed this auto remains in rush hour.

Though the taut suspension does little to filter out bumps and holes, the Corolla is really manoeuvrable. The trip gets a bit uneven on the highway, with a lot of up and down suspension activities, however body roll is effectively controlled when cornering. Front and also rear stabilizer bars are standard.

Going & Ceasing

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 horse power and 122 pounds-feet of torque. A five-speed manual transmission is typical and also a four-speed automatic is optional. EPA gas mileage estimates are 32/41 mpg (city/highway) for hands-on versions; estimates go down to 30/38 with the automatic transmission.

While the Corolla's engine has dramatically reduced result when compared to much of the competitors, it supplies entirely appropriate efficiency on city and also suv roads. It's only on the highway that the engine's modest power scores restrict the Corolla's efficiency; the automatic-transmission Corolla I tested just had a marginal amount of power for quick death. The smooth-shifting automated kicks down swiftly when called upon, but the act prompts a substantial quantity of engine noise as the four-cylinder ramps up the rpms.

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

The In

The driving setting is a bit confined for chauffeurs more than 6 feet high, but this is due even more to absence of rearward adjustability in the chauffeur's seat than to the cabin being exceedingly tiny. With the vehicle driver's seat adjusted as best as feasible for a person high, the guiding wheel is a little a reach, and it does not telescope to make driving less complicated. The control panel stereo controls are instead far. While shorter vehicle drivers likely will not experience these issues, if you're taller you'll intend to pay special focus on the cabin's comfort designs throughout your examination drive.

The Corolla's control panel plastic has nice-looking graining, and the controls are practically prepared. The majority of panels fit securely with each other, and the top-level LE version has decent-looking replica wood trim. The LE's towel seats and also cloth door-panel inserts feel and look dated when compared with more recent competitors, which's prior to you consider the Corolla's premium rates in its segment.

Although it would be nice if the front seats returned further, their minimal travel maintains some room for rear guests, where legroom for the high is limited but total convenience is satisfactory. I would not intend to be stuck back there for more than a couple of hours, however. Once more, owner size could mainly influence comfort, as well as much shorter passengers might discover it completely appropriate, even for lengthy trips.

Safety and security

The Corolla received a Great general rating in the Insurance policy Institute for Highway Safety's frontal-offset crash test. It made an Appropriate overall score in the IIHS' side-impact test when outfitted with the optional side-impact airbags for the pole positions and also front as well as rear side drape air bags. Without those $655 air bags, the Corolla's total side-impact rating goes down to Poor, so you must consider them a need.

Various other optional security functions consist of anti-skid brakes with electronic brake-force distribution and an electronic security system that's available for automatic-transmission S and LE designs.

Freight & Towing

The Corolla's 13.6-cubic-foot trunk is fairly huge for a small car, and it has a large opening to ease access. Folding up the common 60/40-split rear seats is achieved using two wisely located knobs near the top of the trunk. The prolonged tons flooring isn't really entirely flat, nonetheless; there's a step in between the folded seatbacks as well as the trunk floor.

Toyota says the Corolla could tow up to 1,500 pounds when properly outfitted.


Air conditioning, a CD stereo, power-adjustable side mirrors as well as a temperature level scale are conventional. The S models include rocker panels as well as front and also rear underbody looters to the exterior as well as a leather-wrapped wheel and also shifter, various assesses, power door locks and also indoor chrome trim. The top-level LE adds power home windows, keyless entry and vivid electroluminescent gauges that are simple to read. Cruise control, a moonroof and also a JBL audio system with an in-dash six-CD changer are optional.

Corolla out there

The Corolla is proof that-- as long as the essentials exist-- solid sales aren't subject to having the most recent, snazziest design. Though its interior lags the times even for an economic climate vehicle, it's hard to say with the Corolla's sales: Greater than 200,000 have been sold via September of 2006, which's in the face of fresh competitors in the form of the revamped Honda Civic. That's an outstanding success for an aging version, even one with the Corolla's exemplary dependability history.
