What We Think
In a 2017 First Drive review, we said that during panic quits, the brakes do not influence much confidence and that its velocity is slow. Indoor space, on the other hand, is generous with lots of rear-seat room and we appreciated that the cars and truck comes criterion with innovative safety attributes.
The Corolla iM hatchback offers a much more comfy flight thanks to its independent rear suspension. Nevertheless, we kept in mind in a 2016 First Test that it's additionally slow due to the fact that it still uses the very same engine from the Corolla car. Cabin insulation is surprisingly good, with very little noise going into the cabin. Like the Corolla sedan, the Corolla iM has a roomy cabin with plenty of room for all travelers and also the hatch makes it even more practical.
