What We Think
In a 2017 First Drive testimonial, we stated that during panic quits, the brakes do not influence much confidence and that its acceleration is slow-moving. Interior area, on the other hand, is generous with a lot of rear-seat area and we appreciated that the car comes criterion with advanced safety and security functions.
The Corolla iM hatchback supplies a more comfy ride thanks to its independent rear suspension. Nevertheless, we kept in mind in a 2016 First Examination that it's also sluggish since it still makes use of the same engine from the Corolla sedan. Cabin insulation is surprisingly good, with marginal sound getting in the cabin. Like the Corolla car, the Corolla iM has a roomy cabin with lots of area for all travelers and also the hatch makes it even more practical.
The Toyota Corolla's 1.8-liter I-4 was originally presented in the 10th generation design when it debuted for the 2008 model year.
