I needed a second/ commuter car that looks cool and gets great gas mileage. Car is smooth to drive, nice steering feel doesn't have that front wheel drive steering pull in corners, has plenty of go to get out in traffic. Interior is nice and comfortable, infotainment system is good and stereo is better than expected! It needs a subwoofer to fill in sound. I'm getting 30+ in combination city/hi way driving motor is still breaking in with 600 miles on it. Over all I like it alot! Alot better that my CLA250 for less that half the price.

It is a very sporty, cool looking hatchback! The hatchback lid makes the storage area look small, but the lid goes up as you store more supplies in the back! It has remarkable take off power, smooth and zippy! We were surprised at the blastoff feeling from a stopped position. The CVT is smooth and quiet. Nice! AC is cold, cold, COLD! The backup video makes backing up much less stressful and easier! Plenty of storage in glove compartment and else within the front seat area. The only thing we really don't love is how low it sits to the ground, but that is a small complaint compared to all of the great value of this enjoyable car!

Great handling

I own the 2020 6 speed manual se and have been driving it for almost a year now. It is slow off the line for a sporty model but the handling around curves is great. First gear is short and shift distance is long between 1-2, but nothing terrible. Gas mileage varies between gas type and driving type. Under perfect highway conditions I pulled 45mpg off a tank. 45 mpg!! Driving sporty will bring that as low as 32 on the highway but can settle as high as 37-38 as long as you are driving below 65-70. Adaptive cruise control makes long drives a breeze and with a manual you can even downshift and while the car is breaking and stay locked in to the cars automatic controls. The se manual didn’t come with blind spot detection which was a letdown but I purchased some mirrors that help. Trunk space is tight, but the fact I can routinely pull 40mpg on a highway makes up for it. En-suite entertainment system for Toyota is useless as apple car play and android do everything needed. Rear leg room is not for adults unless you are a shorter driver. I’m 6’ 2” and I drive just fine. Interior Stitching is classy and exterior design is sleek and has definite curb appeal. Dual exhaust system makes this car look like high end cars compared to the standard exhaust pipes found in many models. LDA (lane departure) works well but this car does not have LTA ( lane tracing) which some people may like. I tested a highlander for 3 weeks with LTA and it was a bit much anyways. Overall my favorite feature of the car is the adaptive cruise control which keeps a very safe distance between cars and can also be adjusted, where the minimal distance, while aggressive, still feels safe enough while driving on the highway. Great car for a single commuter or a couple with maybe only small kids.

Hybrid mileage at half the price

I tried to buy a Toyota Hybrid, ALL were either pre-sold or were marketed over sticker & most with big profit Dealer add-ons with one purpose, to jack up the price. I stumbled on this slick available Corolla SE Hatchback with sticker milage ratings of 32/41 MPG. We took it for a test drive, loved it & bought it for sticker price (+ armor coating) a markup dealer add-on. First off this is not a "hot Hatch" with a high rev screaming engine, it Is however, a peppy commuter with adequate power AND a tight build with no squeaks or rattles not to mention it's bigger on the inside than the outside. It's got just about everything (other than heated seats) & includes two years of service for very little cash. We've had it nearly two weeks, in that time we haven't driven our 2023 BMW X2 once. We're averaging near Hybrid 35 MPG at ten to twenty grand less than a Toyota Hybrid We love it

Sporty, Reliable, and FUN!

Dependable, good-looking, comfortable, and convenient. All very relatable adjectives to describe what the Corolla Hatchback delivers to its user. If you want the full experience, get the 6-speed. This car has just the right amount of spunk to take corners with high RPMs.
