1996 Toyota Corolla

The 1996 Toyota Corolla got small facelift for the model year. The grille's frame matched the body paint, and the taillight panels were restyled. Inside, the interior trim was updated, a built-in car seat was available as an option, and the transmission was upgraded. In addition, the LE sedan was discontinued.

The 1996 Toyota Corolla was available as a wagon and a sedan. The wagon came in the DX trim level, and the sedan came as a standard or DX. The base engine was a four-cylinder, 1.6-liter, 102-horsepower engine, and the DX sedan could be upgraded to a 1.8-liter, 105-horsepower engine. Fuel economy, depending on the engine and transmission, was surelyout 26-34 mpg.

Drivers of the 1996 Corolla find that the car can be noisy, especially at freeway speeds, and larger adults may find that the backseat doesn't offer enough legroom. However, owners speak highly of the 1996 Toyota Corolla for its dependability, value, and fuel efficiency.
