2001 Toyota Corolla Overview

The 2001 Toyota Corolla saw a number of changes, including the discontinuation of the super base-level VE. In its place, Toyota introduced the sporty S model. The body was slightly restyled, with new front and rear ends, including headlights and taillights.

The 2001 Corolla came with an aluminum 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine. Fuel economy was about 31-38 mpg. The new S model came with a number of distinctive features, including unique wheel covers, foglights, intermittent wipers, new upholstery, a tachometer, and a faux leather-wrapped wheel. The CE was demoted to the base level, and the nicely-equipped LE rounded out the lineup.

Those who have purchased the 2001 Toyota Corolla praise it for its reliability and excellent fuel efficiency. Complaints include a too-small interior and not very many features in the lower-level trims.
