2014 Toyota Corolla L 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 6M) S 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl CVT)
I'm the last person one would expect to be seen in a Corolla, but I still got one! I shopped around and compare the Civic, the Mazda 2, 3, the Focus, the Elantra GT and the Accent. My previous two cars were fast turbo cars with plenty of power and handling. The Mazda 3 is definitely faster than the Corolla, and handles better. So why did I pick the Corolla instead of the Mazda? It felt like the most luxurious car of the bunch, with a decent ride, at a price others couldn't beat. I have everything I always wanted in one package with the "S", no need for additional 1200 Moonroof and other expensive options. The Mazda comes close, but it was more expensive.
Metal door handles - none of the others I compared had them!! Big touch screen with good location. Customizable LCD screen between Gauges (S Model) - I did not like Mazda's LCD placement. Sunroof LED Headlights Paddle Shifters for CVT - They work great!... A little odd when turning around a corn and requiring to shift though. Half leather interior Real Temp gauge/fuel gauge - Didn't like Mazda's digital fuel gauge and missing temp gauge. Quiet ride at highway speeds, quiet engine, only hear the wind. Cushy ride, feels like a limo! Cannot compare with the Mazda in which you feel every single bump. The Corolla absorbs most of the bumps. My passenger fell asleep on the test drive!
2014 Toyota Corolla L 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 6M) LE Plus 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl CVT)
I was looking to trade in my Honda Fit which I loved, for a larger, quieter, smoother riding car for my 65 mile round trip commute to work. Yet I still wanted the efficiency and reliability of the Fit. I cross shopped between the 2013 Civic and the newly designed 2014 Corolla. I initially liked the Civic better, but after driving each car again I realized how good of a job Toyota did. Advantages of the Corolla are: many more premium features for less money, better looking exterior, CVT transmission, nicer interior design with better gauges, automatic climate control, touch screen display screen, much nicer looking wheel choices, unique interior color choices, and a very quiet planted ride.
LED headlights are very bright, touch screen display, bluetooth that reads your texts and e-mails to you, automatic climate control, 8 airbags, unique amber colored interior w matching accents, sporty looking design, very roomy interior w large trunk, very nice alloy wheels and foglights for only 400 dollar difference, and a smooth, comfortable, and quiet ride. Lots of features for the money. Also the back up camera with lines to guide you is a very nice feature to have in a sedan with a high decklid.
Softer touch materials on door panels, the fake leather surrounding the shifter is difficult to clean because dust and lint collects in the creases over time, a sliding center armrest would be nice, and maybe a little more storage space up front although the glovebox is huge and there's nice storage in the armrest. None of these are even close to deal breakers and I really enjoy the car a lot!!
