1998 Toyota Corolla

The Toyota Corolla got a redesign for 1998. The new Corolla was bigger and while the styling was still very conservative, the lines of the car were more graceful and modern. New options like side airbags and a CD player were offered.

The 1998 Corolla got a new, aluminum 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine, rating at 120-horsepower--the most ever for a Corolla. Fuel economy was noticeably improved, with the 1998 Corolla coming in at 31-38 mpg. The standard level was renamed the VE, and the LE was brought back. The mid-level CE rounded out the trims.

Drivers of the 1998 Corolla are enthusiastic about its more powerful engine, and increased fuel efficiency, and of course they appreciate the Toyota reputation for dependability. However, some still find the car too small in the back, and others complain about the dull look of the car and the lack of available options compared to other models.
