What We Think
In a 2017 First Drive evaluation, we said that throughout panic quits, the brakes don't motivate much confidence and that its acceleration is slow. Indoor room, on the other hand, is generous with a lot of rear-seat area and also we valued that the vehicle comes requirement with sophisticated safety and security features.
The Corolla iM hatchback uses a much more comfy flight thanks to its independent rear suspension. Nonetheless, we noted in a 2016 First Test that it's additionally slow due to the fact that it still uses the exact same engine from the Corolla car. Cabin insulation is remarkably great, with marginal sound going into the cabin. Like the Corolla sedan, the Corolla iM has a spacious cabin with a lot of area for all guests and the hatch makes it even more practical.
The Toyota Corolla's 1.8-liter I-4 was initially introduced in the 10th generation model when it debuted for the 2008 version year.
