2015 Toyota Corolla – Still the Same but Completely Redesigned

2015 Toyota Corolla – Still the Same but Completely Redesigned

Thoroughly redesigned last year, the 2015 Toyota Corolla has not changed much for 2015.

That said, it still remains one of the most interesting models in the rather crowded compact sedan segment. The 2015 Toyota Corolla is a vehicle that is perfectly adapted to the needs of buyers in this segment, in part because of its excellent reliability, noteworthy safety features, and impressive fuel economy. The new-generation Corolla also offers a sportier side that will be appreciated by buyers looking to add a little spice to their daily commutes.

The 2015 Corolla’s design is modern yet refined, especially when buyers opt for the higher-up versions. The Corolla’s style, which was introduced last year, allows the sedan to distinguish itself and get noticed immediately. No question, your neighbors will know you bought a new car.

Inside, the new Corolla offers a completely redesigned interior that also happens to offer a lot more room. Indeed, the wheelbase has been lengthened by 100 mm to offer even more legroom, especially for passengers in the back. Moreover, head room has also been improved and the rear seats can now accommodate adults comfortably. Overall comfort is also quite noticeable upfront where the seats offer plenty of cushioning and great lateral support.

The dashboard is also a key component of the Corolla which helps it set itself apart. The materials used in building the interior are refined, and the overall layout of the dashboard will impress your passengers. Moreover, everything is easy to use on a daily basis. Even if it quite sportier, the new Corolla remains a vehicle that is comfortable and great to drive around in on a daily basis.

Back to the sporty side, the new-generation Corolla is a lot more fun to drive than previous generations. Handling and overall behavior is quite an improvement over the Corollas of the past, and the driver now feels quite connected to the road. In a tight turn, the Corolla remains stable and attached to the road, and the driver immediately feels at ease.

Under the hood, the 2015 Corolla is powered by a four-cylindre, 1,8-liter engine that delivers 132 horsepower and 128 lb-ft of torque. There are many transmission options, but we particularly like the CVT-iS gearbox offered on the S model. Although it is a continuously variable transmission, it simulates gear changes for a more engaging drive. There is also an LE ECO version of the Corolla which, although it is more powerful (140 hp), is more fuel-efficient thanks to a host of improvements.
