What We Believe
In a 2017 First Drive testimonial, we said that throughout panic stops, the brakes do not motivate much confidence and that its acceleration is slow. Indoor space, on the other hand, is generous with a lot of rear-seat area as well as we appreciated that the vehicle comes requirement with sophisticated security attributes.
The Corolla iM hatchback uses an extra comfy trip thanks to its independent rear suspension. Nonetheless, we noted in a 2016 First Examination that it's additionally slow because it still makes use of the same engine from the Corolla sedan. Cabin insulation is surprisingly good, with minimal sound getting in the cabin. Like the Corolla sedan, the Corolla iM has a roomy cabin with a lot of area for all guests as well as the hatch makes it much more useful.
