2014 Toyota Corolla S Plus 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl CVT)
I test drove the Mazda 3, liked it but getting the features I wanted drove the price into the stratosphere.
Decided on the Camry SE and went to purchase it.
It was just so....blah.
Ended up test driving the Corolla S Plus.
Did not feel like a compact.
Feels roomy inside, big backseat, and fun to drive too.
Ended up getting a deal too good to pass up on a fully loaded little red Corolla S Plus w/driver's convenience package.
My husband wanted the Camry, but he has come around after driving the Corolla a few times.
It is far more fun to drive and has plenty of room for my teenagers who exceed 6 ft tall in the back!
Push button Start
Lumbar support in the S model seats
Very roomy back seat
Exterior style is a little off-putting (I am getting used to it)
Worry about durability of those sport wheels
