What We Believe
In a 2017 First Drive evaluation, we claimed that during panic stops, the brakes do not motivate much confidence and that its velocity is slow-moving. Interior area, on the other hand, is generous with lots of rear-seat room and also we appreciated that the vehicle comes criterion with innovative safety features.
The Corolla iM hatchback offers a much more comfy ride thanks to its independent rear suspension. Nonetheless, we kept in mind in a 2016 First Test that it's additionally sluggish due to the fact that it still uses the exact same engine from the Corolla car. Cabin insulation is surprisingly excellent, with very little noise entering the cabin. Like the Corolla car, the Corolla iM has a roomy cabin with plenty of space for all passengers and also the hatch makes it a lot more practical.
