2018 Toyota Corolla Review

Here at Baierl Day Automotive, we understand the driving needs of Pittsburgh, Wexford, and Butler residents. If you’re in the market for a new sedan, the Toyota Corolla is a great choice if you’re searching for a vehicle packed with standard safety features, interior comfort, and great performance specifications.

In the following 2018 Toyota Corolla review, our team will dive into what makes the Corolla so great and how you can get behind the wheel to experience it for yourself.

Staying Safe in the 2018 Toyota Corolla

Whether your sedan is primarily used for work commutes or for carting friends and family around town, you need a safety array that is going to protect everyone. Fortunately, the 2018 Toyota Corolla has just that.

For one thing, this sedan comes with numerous structural enhancements. Features such as the front and rear crumple zones, side-door guard beams, and head-impact protection structure ensure that the worst collision forces are redistributed away from the passenger cabin.

From here, you’ll have plenty of technologies working to prevent accidents in the first place, starting with the Star Safety System™. The Star Safety System™ is where you’ll find your most helpful handling features, such as Enhanced Vehicle Stability Control and Smart Stop Technology.

In addition to that, Toyota Safety Sense™-P (TSS-P) works to predict when accidents will occur and works autonomously to avoid them. Its features include:

Toyota Corolla Interior

Though it may be a smaller sedan, the Toyota Corolla has many comforts to go around.

For one thing, this 5-passenger car has 97.5 cubic feet of occupant space. It also offers 13 cubic feet in the trunk for your cargo.

A fabric-trimmed 6-way adjustable driver’s seat is the standard in the Corolla. However, if you’d prefer a bit more versatility for the longer drives, upgrade to a heated, SofTex®-trimmed 8-way power adjustable seat.

As you settle into the driver’s seat, you’ll have numerous technologies at your disposal. Namely, you’ll have the Entune™ Audio suite. The standard Entune™ array comes with a 6.1-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth®, and Siri® Eyes Free. However, with an upgrade, you can add in available Scout® GPS and an even bigger screen.

This sedan comes equipped with a 1.8L 4-cylinder engine, enhanced with dual variable valve timing. This helps to streamline power flow, so the Corolla generates 132 horsepower and 128 lb-ft of torque.

Of course, when equipped with the Continuously Variable Transmission with intelligence and shift mode, the Corolla maintains good mileage, too. You can expect to get an EPA-estimated 36 MPG highway and 28 MPG city.1
