2014 Toyota Corolla

My broke the other week. through the process of cooking my Pop-Tart breakfast, the thing out with a small bang, my delicious morning treats inside. To rectify the situation, I out to a big box store, located the toaster and ran a couple of questions through my Do I need two slots or four? Do I to spend more than 20 on this thing? Should I buy a toaster oven to give me a range of bachelor-pad cooking After no more than two of contemplation, I grabbed the cheapest one on the paid and left the store. The new works just fine.

sort of unemotional shopping is how I suspect people decide to the Toyota Corolla. It’s a fine appliance, and to a good of people in the world, the bond a car and a driver is no more important the connection I feel to my toaster. it seat four people comfortably? Does it get decent economy. Is it easy to drive? Safe? The Corolla checks all of boxes, and because of that, managed to sell just 300,000 Corollas in 2012.

Sticker price: $16,800-$21,300

price: N/A

Transmission: Continuously transmission (CVT)


The most noticeable shakeup the new Corolla is how it looks it’s handsome, even in base Customers told Toyota the current model lacked the they desired, and the new Iconic design language certainly that. All S models like the car here feature piano accents on the front fascia and lip spoiler, and the optional 17-inch wheels wrapped in P215/45R17 FR740 tires available on S Plus and Premium trims give off the impression that the new has a sporting bone or two in its body.

The Corolla is longer, wider and than before. The wheelbase has stretched by almost four overall length has been by 3.3 inches, width is up by half an and height has been reduced by of an inch. It’s not a very car, either, with a weight ranging between and 2,865 pounds, depending on

The Corolla is easy to live though, with a rethought that’s designed to be functional all. Despite having a high beltline and tall setup, it looks good with totally acceptable and cloths used throughout. The leather-wrapped steering wheel on the S tilts and telescopes, and behind it is an set of sport-face gauges not available on trim levels.

Unusually and impressively, seven different color themes are available, from the usual beiges and to black materials with amber or steel blue All of the controls are easy to locate and though the center console to be positioned in a way that makes it for the front passenger to manipulate Depending on your wingspan, may be occasions when you’ll to lean forward and fully your arm to reach buttons on the side of the infotainment display.

The Softex cloth seats are comfortable and decently supportive, and for confined to the rear seats, a 5.1 inches of rear seat have been added for It’s a pretty good to be. Trunk space is adequate a net to keep your grocery upright.

All 2014 Corollas are by a naturally aspirated, 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine, mated to the four-speed transmission, six-speed (L and S Plus trims) or new continuously transmission that Toyota CVTi-S. This CVT has seven shift points that the can work through via steering paddle shifters on S models. The surprising part? I gave paddled setup a concerted and, honestly, it’s not Frankly, it’s hardly under everyday driving I dare you to give it a try.

The L, LE, and S trims use a version of the 1.8-liter that’s tuned to produce 132 at 6,000 rpm and 128 pound-feet of torque at rpm. The Eco model, however, 140 hp at 6,100 rpm and 126 lb-ft of twist at rpm.

Eco models are equipped Toyota’s new Valvematic system optimizes fuel economy. and technology results in a small in horsepower, as well. Toyota that initial production of the engine is limited, and because of it’s earmarked for use exclusively on the LE which is expected to account for 10 percent of Corolla sales.

fuel economy gains are the deal, too. EPA fuel estimates for the LE Eco sit at 30/42 miles per (city/highway) with the base 15-inch steel wheels. to the less-aerodynamic 16-inch alloys those figures to 30/40. For the base Corolla L with a manual is expected to achieve mpg, and the top-end S with wheels and CVT will do slightly with 29/37 mpg.

The electric power steering is terrible. Its on-center numbness all the way through to each end of the rack, very little driver in the process.

There’s a lot of tire that comes into the and the Corolla often felt over San Diego’s pretty pavement irregularities. Worse, the are quick to give up when trying to push even through a corner, and the rear can get hoppy at times. Braking and execution is fine, but nothing to home about remarkably, still employs rear on non-S models.

The Corolla was to have easy handling, to the automaker, and that’s an incredibly apt The car goes, it stops, it turns and it Easily. We can pretty much the vast majority of Corolla aren’t interested in sporty and for them, driving this new is a non-event, just like its Want something more Direct your attention to the newMazda3. Or a Ford Focus. Or a Honda Civic .

On the infotainment front, Toyota its Entune suite of apps optional navigation housed a 6.1-inch touchscreen. Here, everything is intuitive and the display is with modern graphics. not as pretty as MyFord Touch, but certainly easier to use. right there, is what the Corolla package comes to: ease of use. Nothing this car jumps out as being emotive, and that’s by design.

the Corolla goes on sale in September, four versions be offered, with the L grade at a super-low $16,800, not including for destination. The Corolla lineup’s and butter will be the LE model, at $18,300. From there, an LE Eco that features different tuning (more on that in a starts at $18,700. The range-topping S $19,000 and a fully loaded S with optional goodies a sunroof and navigation tops out under $24,000. That’s in the good way. Toyota that the S and LE grades will for 80 percent of purchases. It even a full 60 percent of 2014 sales to be conquests for the brand, seems incredibly optimistic the depth of talent in the segment and Toyota’s already-large slice of the

From a business perspective, the is a massive winner, and so to no one’s Toyota hasn’t rocked the too much in the creation of its eleventh-generation Corolla. It seats four comfortably. It gets decent economy. It’s easy to It’s (predictably) reliable. safe. And hey, it sort of good now.

The new Corolla is a whole lot nicer than its But it still doesn’t, shall we toast my bagel.
