For 2016, there are essentially no changes to the Corolla, save for a brand-new Scandal sheet based on the sporty Corolla S with CVT. Only 8,000 will certainly be marketed, in 3 shades utilized only on this design. They feature unique gloss-black 17-inch alloy wheels, a black inside with red contrast sewing and red dashboard as well as door accents, keyless ignition with the Smartkey system, as well as unique flooring mats and also badges. The sole options are the power moonroof and the Entune Premium Audio system with navigation as well as the application suite.
The business stepped up its game when it released the existing Corolla as a 2014 design. The compact four-door car that has gone to or near the top of UNITED STATE sales charts for years got crisper, sportier looks, a quieter cabin, and also a healthy dollop of the in-car modern technology today's small-car customers anticipate. It's still valued reduced for the high worth it supplies, but now you may pick the Corolla for factors beyond the bottom line as well as watching your bucks.

While its designers have actually been getting extra daring, sometimes to peculiar effect, the 2016 Toyota Corolla sedan plays it safe. It has dropped some of its old dowdiness for a few even more touches of stylistic style, however it's still well-known as a Corolla-- and also distinct from its precursor, which the last one wasn't.
Toyota calls the appearance much more athletic, and also claims it's an instance of "Famous Dynamism"-- make from that what you will. We see bits and pieces of other portable sedans in both its total form as well as a few of the better information. Acquired Dynamism may be more accurate, however that's not actually a put-down. The existing version does what it needs to while avoiding the common appearance of a lot of previous Corollas.
Its longer wheelbase brings the wheels closer to the corners of the cars and truck, which not only offers it more indoor space but makes it a bit sportier. The layout is finished off with brand-new information like LED headlamps and also running lamps. If the auto includes a blacked-out grille, it's the sportier Corolla S version. Similarly, the LE as well as LE Eco models now have a grille that's more distinct from the base Corolla L version.
The Corolla's interior embraces a two-tier dashboard layout that additionally includes in the impression of indoor room, pushing the corners additionally from the front-seat owners toward the base of the steeply raked windscreen. The dashboard surface area itself is a soft-touch product with molded-in sewing, together with a handful of refined pinstriped accents in contrasting shades on the dash and door panels. It does not appear all that efficient, however in some way it encounters as fresh-- a minimum of for a Corolla.
Base models have upholstery in a Steel Gray Fabric, while LE and LE Eco versions have actually an updated and better fabric. The seats in the S designs incorporate leather-like SofTex boosts with coarse, color-toned fabrics in between. Behind the steering wheel, a three-dial scale collection with silver accents is typical on all models other than the sportier S. That version obtains a cluster with two determines flanking a 3.5-inch screen for various computer system features.
The 2016 Toyota Corolla uses an option of two different 1.8-liter 4-cylinder engines, yet efficiency has actually never ever been a significant selling factor for Toyota's portable sedan. Its purchasers want low running costs and value for their money, and also Toyota has actually prioritized those high qualities. Still, the current model is a little more fulfilling to drive than its precursors.
One engine powers the Corolla L, LE, and also S models. It's a base 1.8-liter inline-4 rated at 132 horsepower and 128 pound-feet of torque. The LE Eco variation adds Valvematic to its 1.8-liter inline-4, which provides a wider range of continuously variable shutoff timing-- giving better gas economic situation as well as a boost to 140 horsepower.
The system allows the valves to "float" during coasting, to decrease drag when light on the throttle at higher speeds. It likewise broadens the torque curve-- although peak torque is a bit reduced at 126 lb-ft. So while it could have a lot more horsepower theoretically, don't expect the Eco version to really feel noticeably quicker.
The gearbox for mostly all Corollas sold in the States will certainly be a continuously variable transmission (CVT), and also Toyota has done an excellent work of tuning in a calming, virtually linear feeling during light and also modest acceleration. There's less of the "drone'" that pesters CVTs used in some tiny cars, and also the sportier S design obtains an unique song on its CVT that makes it behave much like a 7-speed automated, with simulated gear ratios and paddle shifters behind the leather-trimmed steering wheel to allow drivers click through them at will.
The CVT autos feel lackluster from a standing start-- particularly when aimed slightly uphill or filled with passengers-- as a result of their tall beginning proportion. However highway death response is much enhanced, and also they really feel perkier once underway compared to the automatic they change. Toyota says it's knocked virtually a second off the 0-to-60-mph time provided by the previous Corolla's 4-speed transmission.
The base Corolla L, nonetheless, is still encumbered that old 4-speed automated. It's slow-moving when you need a fast burst of passing power, as a result of the vast steps between its proportions, and also its fuel economic situation ratings are lower than those for CVT-equipped Corollas.
Finally, if you want to change for yourself, the base L and the stylish S model can be gotten with a 6-speed guidebook transmission. The link isn't sport-sedan precise and the tosses are rather long, but the clutch uses up lightly and also naturally. That makes the unusual hands-on Corolla very easy to drive in stop-and-go website traffic.
All Corolla versions have a torsion-beam back suspension that mounts bushings at a slanted placement, lessening noise, resonance, and cruelty and tightening rear-end behavior near the handling limit-- and also S versions take advantage of that.
The S, actually, is the one you need to choose if you intend to maximize your Corolla driving enjoyment. Its suspension song is a lot more buttoned-down, instead as you might expect in a sporting activity car-- and its special Sport button firms up the guiding too. The trip is firm yet absorbing and well damped. Various other designs in the lineup stay a bit springy and also pillowy, with a ride that's not only a little softer however additionally a bit more busy (counter-intuitively) on jittery backroads.
Comfort & Top quality
The 2016 Toyota Corolla sedan's 183-inch size and extensive back seat location would certainly have matched a mid-size sedan simply a couple of years earlier. Its 2014 redesign acquired it nearly 4 inches in wheelbase, as well as a monstrous 5.1 inches more leg area in the rear. 4 6-footers could ride in relative comfort, which had not been a feat possible in previous Corolla generations.
The front seats are much more adjustable as well as have longer paddings than before, making them as comfy as seats in competing compacts, possibly more so. The driving setting has a loosened up, "large vehicle" really feel, and also Toyota has fitted cupholders in both front and rear door panels, along with a pair in the center console for those in front. All versions besides the base L get a back center armrest with 2 integrated cupholders also.
In back, the functional boost in leg room is better to 2 or 3 inches, as well as head room has actually gone down just a little bit. Still, long-legged occupants can be comfy in the rear of a Corolla for the very first time, without asking those ahead to move their seats forward. What betrays the Corolla as a compact is mainly the narrow rear-- which still will not conveniently fit 3 grownups across, even if legroom suffices.
The 2016 Toyota Corolla gets decent security rankings, though they're not quite top-tier, and it's missing out on several of the innovative active-safety modern technology that even small buyers are beginning to expect.
The NHTSA offers the 2016 Corolla five stars overall, its greatest rating, and 5 star in every specific test other than rollover, where it gets 4 from 5. In IIHS testing, nevertheless, last year's Corolla made top "Great" ratings in frontal, side, back, as well as roof covering stamina examinations-- but only a "Marginal" score in the new little overlap frontal examination.
The existing generation of Corolla has eight air bags as basic tools, including a driver's side knee bag in addition to a front guest seat cushion bag. That remains in addition to motorist and also front traveler front as well as side air bags, along with side-curtain bags that cover outboard occupants front and also back.
The 2016 Toyota Corolla proceeds the same this year with four trim degrees: L, LE, S, as well as the even more fuel-efficient LE Eco design.
All Corollas including the base L version attribute common a/c, LED low-beam fronts lights with LED daytime running lights, in-glass AM/FM antenna, color-keyed outside door takes care of and also mirrors, a 60/40-split fold-down back seat, and also power locks, doors, and mirrors. The base model forgoes automatic environment control, cruise control, and also keyless entrance. It's basic sufficient to have a 1960s-style metal ignition trick, which is charming in its very own method.
However the traditional base audio head device (handles!) is not only wonderfully basic-- avoiding the touchscreen, applications, etc-- however has extremely great sound, in addition to a screen that could reveal also longer song titles. Hands-free calls, Bluetooth pairing, an accessory audio jack, and USB/iPod connectivity (with charging as well as complete USB 2.0 compatibility) are additionally consisted of in all Corolla designs-- even the base L-- but LE, S, and also LE Eco versions all include more steering-wheel controls in addition to voice recognition.
