A trunk spoiler is optional while unique 18-inch wheels are standard, making for an attractive exterior in this spec.

Toyota really improved the Corolla Sedan Exterior, For the 2021 version. The Company gives 15 exterior colors for Corolla sedan: Super White, Celestite, Black Sand Pearl, Classic Silver Metallic, Barcelona Red Metallic, Blueprint, Blizzard Pearl, Blue Crush Metallic, Blizzard Pearl w/Black Sand Pearl Roof, Classic Silver Metallic w/Black Sand Pearl Roof, Super White w/Black Sand Pearl Roof, Blue Crush Metallic w/Black Sand Pearl Roof, Celestite w/Black Sand Pearl Roof, Blueprint w/Black Sand Pearl Roof, and Barcelona Red Metallic w/Black Sand Pearl Roof.

For the interior, Toyota’s improvement didn’t receive positive feedback from the buyers. Many Said, the exterior style isn’t high point touch, The central touchscreen display sits proudly atop the dash, while a small TFT screen aids the driver. Overall, it looks and feels appealing, and there’s no cause for concern when it comes to building quality. The seats are comfortable too, and the cabin is spacious, although taller individuals may be slightly happier in the front, where some trims offer heated seats.

However, All trim levels of the Corolla sedan seat five individuals in decent comfort, but those over six-feet will only narrowly miss the roof when seated in the back. The seats are inoffensive, although lower trims only come with manual adjustment and have fairly flat cushioning. On the SE and XSE variants, you get sports seats that offer more support without invading comfort, and power-adjustment is available on higher trims with an eight-way adjustment for the driver and a four-way adjustment for the person riding a shotgun. Getting in and out is a breeze too, and there’s plenty of space for long legs at 42/34.8 inches front/rear. In the driver’s seat, the layout is easy to live with and all-round visibility is decent.

Engine System & Performance

For the engine, Toyota gives Corolla sedan two engine options, both of which are four-cylinder motors with no forced induction. The entry-level engine is a 1.8-liter that produces 139 hp and 126 lb-ft, and as you can guess, a 0-60 mph time of fewer than 10 seconds is all you can ask for here. The 2.0-liter is slightly better with its 169 hp and 151 lb-ft of torque, but this engine still only motivates the Corolla to get from 0 to 60 mph in eight seconds. Clearly, the Corolla was never built for top speed. However, what the front-wheel-drive sedan does offer is a comfortable ride along with remarkably good handling. It’s not going to win any autocross events, but it is spritely enough to feel capable, and in an affordable sedan like this, anything more would probably be considered overkill. The only rivals in the segment to offer AWD come from Japanese kin like Mazda and Subaru, whose Mazda 3 and Impreza offerings can drive all four wheels.
