What We Think
In a 2017 First Drive review, we stated that during panic stops, the brakes don't motivate much self-confidence and that its velocity is slow-moving. Interior space, on the other hand, is generous with lots of rear-seat room and also we appreciated that the auto comes criterion with sophisticated security attributes.
The Corolla iM hatchback uses a more comfortable trip thanks to its independent back suspension. Nonetheless, we noted in a 2016 First Test that it's also slow-moving since it still utilizes the same engine from the Corolla sedan. Cabin insulation is surprisingly excellent, with minimal sound going into the cabin. Like the Corolla sedan, the Corolla iM has a spacious cabin with lots of room for all passengers as well as the hatch makes it a lot more sensible.
The Toyota Corolla's 1.8-liter I-4 was initially presented in the 10th generation version when it debuted for the 2008 version year.
