XRS should be a small car contender!!

2005 Toyota Corolla XRS 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 6M)


Price can be too high for some but if
you can afford this 4 door rocket, get
it! Using the Celica's engine it is
rev-happy and is extremely brisk on the
street! Going up to the mountains from
Denver it easily scooted up those 6%
inclines with 3 people in it and A/C
on! Not an easy feat for most econo-
boxes!!! Comfort is great, noise a
smidgen high but not terribly bad! I
do, however, have one gripe...the
tires...lil' too much flex on the
sidewall when cornering, other than
that the corolla loves to be tossed
into corners! Even better ABS, all
disc brakes, 6-speed, cruise, etc...and
with Toyota reliablility!

Best Features

6-speed, suspension, 170-HP engine, exterior design (head turner for sure), safety, gauge cluster, front/rear discs, tire pressure monitor! Auto A/C shut-off when revs get above 5000, great feature when needing to pass or climb hills!

Worst Features

Make side airbags standard! possibly two additional interior colors, instead of fixed variable intermitent wipers, make them full variable like on the LE!
