The Toyota Corolla has long been one of the best selling cars in the United States and around the world. It earned that distinction first in 1974 and has stayed near the top of the lists since then. Why is this compact car so popular?
The Toyota Corolla provides a wide variety of drivers with exactly what they are looking for in transportation. It's relatively small size still provides ample room for four adults to ride in comfort. The 4 cylinder engines get from a minimum of 27 miles per gallon to a maximum of 40 mpg highway driving with their 2014 LE Eco model. Corollas focus on safety as well, with 8 airbags standard, adjustable 3-point seat belt systems and high tech safety additions like vehicle stability control, back-up cameras, anti-lock brakes and Smart Stop technology.
While these convenient cars started out as a boxy compact with little personality, the 2014 models have updated styling and a sleek new look. Combine the style with the high-tech electronics found within and the Toyota Corolla becomes a favorite of the younger crowd of savvy professionals too. Not only do some models come standard with satellite radio and Bluetooth capabilities, but they also have voice recognition, convenient controls on the steering wheel and a USB port to plug in your mp3 player.
The Toyota Corolla is offered in four models: L, LE, LE Eco and S that range in price from around $17-19,000 depending on the features you select.
