This car has all the safety features as standard equipment and that was important to me. The ride is very quiet, road noise, almost non- existent. This coupled with the roominess and comfort make you think you are in a larger sedan. As a commuter car, the size is just right and the gas mileage very good. I have been buying Toyotas since 1984, and this is my third Corolla. They just keep getting better.
Vehicle stability control with traction control. Automatic volume level on radio and six speakers. Radio controls on wheel. Lots of storage space. Mileage computer. Sport fabric seats that are very comfortable. Height of driver's seat is adjustable. 16" alloy wheels with tire pressure monitoring.
I'm starting to get used to the shifter, so I won't say go back to the straight style. Put hooks in the trunk for a cargo net. My Camry has them and I like the cargo net. The hold down rings on the trunk floor are a waste.
