Editor's Overview

Toyota argues that the 2014 Toyota Corolla compact sedan is all-new, and it certainly looks all-new, with a newer and much nicer interior. Many of the 5-passenger Corolla's tried-and-true mechanicals, though, are refined but not revolutionized. Competitors like the Honda Civic, Ford Focus and Mazda3 are all tempting, but none of them can match the bread-and-butter goodness of a Corolla.

I love my car! I purchased it new and it is been such a great car to have. Drives extremely well, great speed for the highways. Decent gas mileage- it once took me only $22 to fill up. Now it is at $30 but of course that is with the influx of gas in general. My car is black and I love it- looks great when washed and I generally keep my car pretty clean therefore the inside looks nice and neat as well. Black interior with leather-ish seats that make the car look great although I sometimes miss stains because it is not extremely obvious so I see them a few days later (than when I had people in my car) which means it could stain and not be as removable. Overall, love my car- love how it rides, very low maintenance to keep up and when I first purchased it I put quite a lot of miles on it within the first 2-3 years.

I love my Corolla. So the pros to owning it, I believe that Toyotas last forever. They come with great tires, mine lasted me 3 years with lots of traveling. Brakes are still in perfect condition. Great on gas, gets up and goes when your merging onto the freeway. Looks sporty. Spacious, has good size trunk and back see. Defiantly enough leg room. Comes with a great sounds system. If your like me and love your music this system will suit you. Cons, I got my seats in a tan, if I could go back I would get them in a darker color, water stains my seats. And after a while I realized how my car wasn't as "air tight" as some other vehicles. I can hear the wind outside my car more then I would like. Overall I would recommend this car to everyone, and I already do!

4th Toyota in a once-loyal Mercedes family.

This is my second Corolla and the fourth Toyota in a row purchased by a once-loyal Mercedes family. This was the first car I ever bought new and it has been a delight from the start. It drives very smoothly and low to the ground but rarely scrapes on bumps. The driver's seat is able to be elevated which really helps to see out since the car is so low. The backseat is super roomy, friends are always commenting on it. The touch screen computer and Bluetooth make music and phone calls a breeze but some features do not work with iPhone. (unfortunately, a detail that my salesperson left out. ) The buttons on the steering wheel make it easy to navigate your music without taking your hands off the wheel. Overall my favorite car I have ever driven!
