The Media and the All-New 2015 Toyota Corolla

Published on August 18 2015

It’s not a surprise that the new Corolla stands out when it comes to driving impressions and reviews.

The Toyota Corolla has always been in the spotlight. We are talking about a model here that truly stands out in the crowd from a variety of stand points including reliability, comfort, safety and fuel economy. That said, the Corolla was never considered a car that was fun to drive… until now.

It's New, and it's Better

Redesigned in 2014, the new 2015 Toyota Corolla offers everything its predecessor did, but now adds quite a bit of performance and dynamic handling to the mix, making it the best Corolla ever. Starting at $15,995, the 2015 Corolla is powered by a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine that delivers 132 hp. That’s plenty of power that doesn’t come at the expense of fuel economy which is rated at 6.2 liters per 100 kilometers on the highway with the six-speed manual (6.5 liters per 100 kilometers on the highway with the brand new CVT).

The Media is All Over the 2015 Toyota Corolla

It’s therefore not a surprise that the new Corolla stands out when it comes to driving impressions and reviews. Let’s look at what some of the journalists that have had the opportunity to drive the new Corolla think of the model.

The Toyota Corolla is a logical decision. It’s affordable to purchase (starts in the $15k range and even at the top of the line, like my LE ECO, it’s still just a smidge over $20k to start). And I have to admit that after a week behind the wheel, putting well over 500km on it in wintery, snowy conditions with winter tires and a penchant to #neverlift, I still averaged 8.7L/100km and managed to only have to fill the tank once, which also cost me well under $50 – Auto123

Although the Corolla 50th Anniversary Special Edition will never be confused as a sports car, it does tick all the aforementioned boxes, and then some. Plus, it won’t drain your bank account at the gas pump or when making the monthly payments.

All seats feature fabric center inserts surrounded by faux-leather side bolsters. They are comfortable for long distance driving and are easy to clean if something happens to spill. Back seat legroom is surprisingly excellent, and seating is available for up to five people.

Head room is also very good, especially when you take into account that our test vehicle is equipped with the optional moonroof. Round center gauges are easy to read, the center console looks expensive and the touch screen audio system is logical and visible for the most part in bright sunshine. I also appreciate the clear image provided by the backup camera – TheAutonet

Here’s the gist: the 2015 Toyota Corolla is a perfectly acceptable compact car, one that’s affordable, inexpensive to operate, and which has historically posted strong reliability and re-sale value for owners.  While it’s a step up from the previous generation of the Corolla, it’s in a sense a lateral move, rather than an evolutionary one for the model – TheCarGuide
