Gets The Job Done And Doesn't Kill The Wallet. by John
 — The car is pretty nice overall. However, I did get every option available, so that may have something to do with it. The stock stereo is decent, and the 6 disc in-dash changer kicks ass. The car rides... Read More

2005 Toyota Corolla

The 2005 Toyota Corolla received a few improvements, including a redesigned front end and taillights. Toyota also introduced a new trim for the 2005 Corolla: the sporty XRS. The Corolla also got new safety options, including curtain airbags with seat-mounted side airbags and a vehicle stability control system.

The CE, S and LE models came with a 1.8-liter four-cylinder, 130-horsepower engine. The base CE still had a few amenities, like a CD player and air conditioning. The S came with sporty accents like chrome trim and a tachometer, but didn't differ in performance. The LE was the high-end version, coming fully equipped. The XRS was Toyot's answer to complaints that the S only looked sporty, and came with a 170-horsepower engine, sport-tuned suspension, and larger wheels. Fuel economy overall was about 26-41 mpg.

Many drivers of the 2005 Corolla find the driving position to be uncomfortable; it seems to be problematic for both short and tall drivers. Still, owners love their 2005 Corollas for their fuel economy, reliability, and low maintenance.
