Does the Corolla have enough power?

The short answer is YES! The longer answer involves the fact that there is the LE Eco model which compensates for its gas-sipping with a stronger CVT, aerodynamic design, the Valvematic system, and a smart ECO mode that changes with driver's need. On top of that, the S model stands for Sport and has the tuning to meet that level of expectation. For instance, the S model's available CVTi-S transmission has up to 7 shift-points can be manually engaged from the shift lever or steering wheel paddle shifters. Adding to that is a rear spoiler, fog lights and chrome-tipped tailpipe! Additionally, 132 horsepower for a light, under 3-ton vehicle, also contributes to overall power and performance.

What are some of the elements of the Toyota Corolla?

Inside and outside of a pre-owned Corolla, you could find many excellent items, such as rear disc brakes, a power tilt/slide moonroof, special 17" alloy wheels with gloss black finish, a Smart Key System with pushbutton start, Toyota's Entune Premium Audio with Navigation and App Suite (otherwise, either Entune Audio or Entune Audio Plus), and Siri® Eyes Free Mode. Continuing that list are App Suite 2.5 (which adds Slacker Radio and Destination Search), an acoustic glass windshield, USB & iPod connectivity, integrated back-up camera with projected path guidelines, and maybe even a Driver Convenience Package. Whatever you are looking for is probably out there in a Corolla, as even on prior model years, Toyota made sure to put the latest tech and design features!

What is the benefit of the LE ECO model?

The Corolla LE Eco model grade mixes aerodynamic exterior design with a highly calibrated and tuned transmission. The inherent Valvematic tech increases the CVT's lift & phase range (more than with the standard model's VVT-i), to noticeably power through gears more efficiently than you would think. Switching on the unique ECO driving mode de-emphasises power to the A/C compressor without a loss in cabin coolness (due to smart engineering). The gas pedal timing, also, is designed to mitigate excess fuel consumption from people who drive with inconsistent acceleration (when unneeded) and also for those who unnecessarily launch too fast from a standstill, increasing evenness of the daily ride experience. That said, once the driver goes past 50% throttle, the Normal mode is summoned automatically, and the driver can phase into traffic easily as well as get the acceleration needed to pass on the highway. Low rolling resistance tires contribute to the way the Corolla LE Eco model slices through the wind, as do underbody covers and a spoiler on the back end, equalling out to a coefficient of drag of an exceptional 0.28Cd!

Final Thoughts on the Used Toyota Corolla

Let's wrap up this review with some safety points about this fun-for-family-&-commuter-alike vehicle, which includes a large laundry list of items, such as high-strength construction, among other things. Things like the Star Safety System: Traction Control (TRAC), Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) and Brake Assist Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Vehicle Stability Control (VSC). The Corolla has integrated an electronic tire pressure monitoring system as well as a Smart Stop Technology brake-override system. Building on that is 8 airbags, consisting of both front and rear side curtain airbags, a driver & front passenger Advanced Airbag System, driver and front passenger seat-mounted side airbags, passenger seat cushion airbag, and a driver knee airbag. The pre-owned Toyota Corolla is a stellar choice all around, and you'll certainly be happy in the similar company out on America's roads!
