Great Little Car With Plenty Of Power!! — I love this little car, its fast, great gas mileage, and very smooth handeling. It has alot of room also for a little sport/economy car. This is the perfect car for driving around and especially for traveling. Dont let the brand of car fool you, it has some power, it has that get up and go.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great Gas Mileage 26 city/37 hwy
Very stylish for an economy car
Great handling, low maintenence

Cons: Im a big guy so its a little cramped,

Economy Version Of Economy Car — Like; cheap on gas, never broke down once in the 140,000 km we drove it. Faithful vehicle, forgives occasional lapses of care (forgot oil change? no problem). Handles surprisingly well given the rickety feeling and small engine. The small weight of vehicle compensates for the weak engine, and yes, it can accelerate! Hate: the cheaply made interior and manual window handles, and no power locks. We bought it almost new for our teenage daughter, so it was meant to be basic, but we would not do it again. Feels rickety.

Pros: Reliable, cheap on gas

Cons: Tin can

Excellent! — I like the ability to go anywhere for very little money in gas or maintainance bills. Cost to own is very low, especially for how comfortable and quiet this car is. The car is legendary Toyota quality and backs it up every day!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: The car is extremely reliable and cost effective transportation.

Cons: The Corolla is a bit cramped for very tall people.

Value For Money, Efficient, Fun To Drive, But Not Really Sporty. — Performance - Above average, not exactly meant for spirited driving though. Build Quality - Poor material quality, average workmanship. Appearance - Looks good overall but slightly dated, detailing better is better on the latest model. Cost Of Ownership - Good gas mileage, cheap to maintain. Fun Factor - This car isn't meant for outright performance driving, but its quite a good drive.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Light weight due to Indian subcontinental specifications, adequate power, good brakes, comfortable ride and reasonably good handling.

Cons: Bland design and interiors, snappy brakes, build quality issues, tyre wear out rate and  panel gaps.

Very Good Choice New — Any Corolla is as common as stars in the sky but they certainly provide good service for the price. excellent fuel economy, reasonable cost of ownership. More conservative than Honda but that makes finding used safer - less sporty = less abuse.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: practical service per dollar new

Cons: high resale value used

High Quality Reachable Price — Performance is quite good for 1600cc though I wish it had manuel transmission. It has no problems at all and has a low maintenance fee. In my opinion apperance of the car is really good for a sedan. It is suitable for a family or a company car. Since it works with oil it consumes alot of it. 8litres/100kilometers what I have measured with 75km city driving and 25 highway driving. I love driving it, comfortable for long drives

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: great driving quality

Cons: Its Multimode transmission
