Basically The Same Tinny Corolla of the 90's
Was looking for a compact commuter that got good mileage, could fit people and dogs, and that would last a long time. I test drove a few cars, but Toyota's Safety Sense was what made me purchase the vehicle - it is great to see these safety features on a base model compact car and I applaud Toyota for doing so. I live in Wisconsin and bought the car in July. No issues until the colder weather came in. Whenever the temperature is below 40 degrees there are noises everywhere! First there was a rattle in the headliner right above the driver side. I popped the dome light off and stuck some Styrofoam in there and that seemed to cancel that out. Second there's rattles coming from both trim pieces on the dash for the side mirror defrosters. Upon inspection I found that the piece doesn't meet snugly with the vent, so I glued some foam to the base of the trim piece and that seemed to fix that problem. Finally the dash rattles like no other especially in colder weather. It mostly disappears when the car is running at temperature. Again sticking some foam along the base and A pillars seems to help mostly. Overall it's a good car with lots of potential, but with less than 11,000 miles and rattles all over, I am nervous about the long term reliability for the vehicle
many changes in the 2018 corolla
on the plus side it has safety features such as automatic braking - however I am very sorry that I traded in my 2015 corolla which was much roomier and the biggest things is that the 2018 corolla seats are very very uncomfortable. They are very hard and for long trip I had to stop at every rest area just to give my back and butt a rest. My 2015 corolla have very comfortable seats. They made the 2018 corolla smaller and very uncomfortable compared to the 2015. I am going to sell it as soon as I return from my tri[
Great Sales Staff - Not so great vehicle
I had no issues with the sales representative. He was very helpful, kind, and informative. It was just that the vehicle itself did not sell me - especially the slow acceleration response. The engine was also a bit noisy. Beautiful car as far as looks and style. Great interior and technology. Just did not like the lack of "get up and go".

Toyota Corolla vs. Honda Civic

This classic compact comparison is not much of a contest these days since the Toyota Corolla is now thoroughly outmatched by its crosstown rival. The Corolla feels especially old because its last redesign five years back was largely cosmetic. Meanwhile, Honda redesigned the Civic just two years ago to be larger and much nicer inside. It also offers two fantastic engine choices, and it rides on a reworked chassis with a sophisticated multilink rear suspension.

Toyota Corolla vs. Hyundai Elantra

Few would have picked the Elantra 10 years ago, but Hyundai has quietly evolved this small sedan into a solid choice. Compared to the Corolla, the latest Elantra is nicer to drive, equally easy on gas and a little spunkier. It also gives you more standard features. But you can't get the Corolla's active safety gear on an Elantra unless you spend a lot on the top Elantra Limited trim level.

Toyota Corolla vs. Mazda 3

The Corolla doesn't have many advantages over the Mazda 3 sedan, except perhaps for a larger dealer network and a reputation as a known quantity. Its standard active safety gear is a plus, too. But the Mazda 3 sedan is the better car on many fronts. It offers exemplary ride and handling, its engines are powerful, smooth and efficient, and its interior environment and touchscreen infotainment system are more sophisticated.

Is the Toyota Corolla a good car?

The 2018 Toyota Corolla is a good-looking compact sedan that's quite roomy, even in the back seat. Safety is its biggest advantage — even the cheapest 2018 Corolla is loaded with standard active safety gear such as adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking and lane keeping assist. Its 132-horsepower, 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine delivers good fuel economy but sluggish acceleration. And the Corolla's handling is merely competent, by which we mean it's not our top choice for those who regularly drive curvy roads. Smartphone integration technology on the Corolla is also subpar.

Does the Toyota Corolla have good MPG?

Most Corollas are EPA rated at 31 mpg combined (28 city/35 highway), which is starting to become below average for this class. The top-line Corolla XLE manages 32 mpg combined (28 city/36 highway). Most Hyundai Elantra trims are rated at 32 mpg combined, but the new segment standard is the Honda Civic, with a base engine that's rated at 34 mpg combined and a more powerful premium engine that's good for 36 mpg combined. The more muscular Honda pair makes it harder to be impressed by the miserly Corolla LE Eco, which is rated at 34 mpg combined (30 city/40 highway). The Hyundai Elantra Eco pips it, too, with a rating of 35 mpg combined. The Corolla is available with a manual transmission that's rated at 30 mpg combined, which is average among manual-equipped small sedans.
