The Toyota Corolla may be America’s best-selling compact car, but don’t tell rear seat passengers it’s a compact, because Toyota managed to give them the kind of legroom you’d see in a full-size car – 41.4 inches. That’s just one of the many “class above” features that make the Corolla a standout in its segment. The 42-MPG EPA estimated highway fuel economy for the Corolla LE Eco model is yet another.
Those figures put the Corolla at the head of its class in both areas, with the rear legroom giving a 5-6 inch advantage over most competitors, and the top fuel economy encroaches on some diesels. That makes the Corolla pretty special, something Toyota is celebrating with the aptly named Corolla Special Edition for 2016. Toyota will build 8,000 for the model year.
What are critics saying about the Toyota Corolla?
Many of the current Corolla’s strengths can be found inside. The overall design is fresh and brings, dare we say it, a stylish edge to the traditionally staid small sedan class. The interface for the infotainment system is easy to use thanks to clear displays and well-placed controls. We also like the Corolla’s rear seat that provides more legroom than many midsize sedans. Add the Corolla’s laudable crash-test scores, high fuel economy and exceptionally high resale value and you have all the ingredients for a car that pleases more than it dismays. Read More >>

On the positive side of the equation, it has the Toyota reputation for reliability. As a result, it brings a premium, despite not engaging the driver as do some of its competitors. Still, it remains a bestseller. If you’re more interested in the destination than the journey, the Corolla is for you. Read More >>
