Since this is my first new car, I spend a lot of time checking out different types of cars for the best value. I was torn between the Corolla LE and the Hyundai Elantra. Both cars had the features I was looking for but the Corolla drove much smoother. The Corolla did not have the cheap looking interior like the Elantra and it has better gas mileage per gallon too. I love my Corolla and would suggest it to anyone looking for a new car.
I really like all the storage compartments. The small compartment left of the steering wheel is perfect for extra keys and there is even a spot where my CD's fit perfectly. I also like the extra 12 volt power supply and storage place for my cell phone.
It is hard to get the the ash tray and CD compartment because of how the front drink holder is designed.
