2007 toyota Corolla S

2007 toyota Corolla S: Though it hasn't already undertaken a substantial redesign given that the 2003 design year, the Corolla stays one of the very popular automobiles in the United States Just what's so appealing about this compact? For beginners, the Corolla obtains phenomenal gas mileage. It's likewise nimble. Probably more vital to purchasers trying to find economical transport is the Corolla's superior reliability. The Corolla's interior, nonetheless, is starting to show its age.

Outside & Styling

On the planet of small cars and trucks, designing is progressively coming to be much more bold. Witness the advanced front end of the Honda Civic as well as the brutish look of Dodge's Quality. With its unmemorable appearances, the Corolla has neither of these automobiles' bravado, which may or could not be a good idea, depending upon your tastes. (The Corolla is due for a redesign in the next couple of years, and also-- if the redesign of Toyota's 2007 Camry is anything to go by-- could obtain a more distinct exterior after that.) Regardless, shutting the Corolla's doors yields an assuring "thunk" that recommends a deluxe-- rather than an economic situation-- vehicle.

All versions have common 15-inch steel wheels, though LE designs could have 15-inch alloy wheels and also the Corolla S could have 15- or 16-inch alloy wheels. A spoiler is optional for the S.

Flight & Handling

Most of my time behind the wheel of the Corolla was invested in Chicago's streets and freeways. With these roadways' continuous congestion, it really did not take lengthy to find how completed this auto remains in rush hour.

Though the tight suspension does little to filter out bumps and also pockets, the Corolla is very maneuverable. The flight gets a little bit rough on the freeway, with a great deal of up and down suspension motions, yet body roll is efficiently regulated when cornering. Front and rear stabilizer bars are typical.

Going & Ceasing

With the discontinuation of the high-output XRS, the single engine for the 2007 Corolla is a 1.8-liter four-cylinder that makes 126 horse power and also 122 pounds-feet of torque. A five-speed manual transmission is basic and also a four-speed automated is optional. EPA gas mileage price quotes are 32/41 mpg (city/highway) for hands-on designs; quotes go down to 30/38 with the transmission.

While the Corolla's engine has dramatically lower result when compared with much of the competition, it gives entirely acceptable efficiency on city and also rural roads. It's just on the highway that the engine's small power ratings limit the Corolla's efficiency; the automatic-transmission Corolla I tested only had a marginal quantity of power for fast passing away. The smooth-shifting automated kicks down quickly when contacted, yet the act induces a significant amount of engine noise as the four-cylinder ramps up the rpms.

Corollas have front-disc as well as rear-drum brakes that supply linear stopping efficiency. Antilock brakes are optional.

The In

The driving setting is a bit cramped for vehicle drivers greater than 6 feet high, but this schedules more to lack of rearward adjustability in the chauffeur's seat than to the cabin being exceedingly tiny. With the driver's seat changed as best as feasible for a person high, the steering wheel is a little a reach, as well as it does not telescope making driving simpler. The dashboard stereo controls are instead far. While much shorter chauffeurs likely won't experience these concerns, if you're taller you'll intend to pay special focus on the cabin's comfort designs during your test drive.

The Corolla's control panel plastic has nice-looking graining, and also the controls are practically prepared. A lot of panels fit snugly with each other, as well as the top-level LE design has decent-looking replica wood trim. The LE's towel seats and fabric door-panel inserts feel and look dated when compared with more recent competitors, and that's prior to you take into consideration the Corolla's premium rates in its section.

Even though it would certainly be nice if the pole positions returned further, their limited travel maintains some area for rear guests, where legroom for the tall is limited yet overall convenience is passable. I would not want to be stuck back there for greater than a couple of hrs, however. Again, occupant dimension could mainly influence convenience, and shorter travelers might find it totally acceptable, also for lengthy trips.

Safety and security

The Corolla got a Good total rating in the Insurance coverage Institute for Freeway Safety and security's frontal-offset accident examination. It gained an Appropriate overall score in the IIHS' side-impact test when geared up with the optional side-impact airbags for the front seats as well as front and also rear side drape airbags. Without those $655 airbags, the Corolla's general side-impact score drops to Poor, so you must consider them a necessity.

Other optional safety and security features consist of anti-skid brakes with digital brake-force circulation as well as a digital security system that's available for automatic-transmission S and also LE versions.

Freight & Towing

The Corolla's 13.6-cubic-foot trunk is reasonably huge for a portable car, and also it has a broad opening to reduce gain access to. Folding up the standard 60/40-split rear seats is achieved by using 2 wisely located knobs near the top of the trunk. The extended tons flooring isn't really entirely level, nevertheless; there's a walk in between the folded up seatbacks and also the trunk floor.

Toyota says the Corolla could tow up to 1,500 pounds when effectively equipped.


Air conditioning, a CD stereo, power-adjustable side mirrors and also a temperature level gauge are conventional. The S versions add rocker panels and also front and also rear underbody spoilers to the exterior and also a leather-wrapped wheel as well as shifter, different gauges, power door locks and also indoor chrome trim. The top-level LE adds power windows, keyless access as well as dynamic electroluminescent evaluates that are easy to read. Cruise ship control, a moonroof as well as a JBL audio system with an in-dash six-CD changer are optional.

Corolla in the marketplace

The Corolla is proof that-- as long as the essentials are there-- strong sales typically aren't subject to having the latest, snazziest version. Though its interior lags the times also for an economic climate cars and truck, it's difficult to argue with the Corolla's sales: Greater than 200,000 have actually been sold through September of 2006, and that remains in the face of fresh competition in the form of the redesigned Honda Civic. That's an outstanding accomplishment for an aging model, even one with the Corolla's excellent integrity history.
