2016 Toyota Corolla Walk Around

The Corolla is conservative in appearance. Attractive, with crisp lines, but not particularly distinctive.

LED headlights and running lights help give the Corolla a sportier aura. So does the lengthened wheelbase of the current generation (2014-2016), which added some interior space.

Corolla LE models have a grille that differs from the one in the base L version, while the S sedan gets a blacked-out grille, with a bolder airdam flanked by foglamps. Decisively angled frontal shapes, coupled with an upward-tilted beltline toward the rear, help create a wedge profile.


Roomier than expected, the Corolla can hold four six-footers. Long cushions and full adjustments help make front seats comfortable, while the driver gets a relaxed position, as if in a larger car.

Leg space in back is good; headroom, not so much. Still, for the first time, two long-legged passengers can expect comfort in the back of a Corolla. Outward visibility is good.

Trunk space ranks as average, with a wide opening and low, flat cargo floor. All models have flip-forward back seats.

The cabin has a rather conservative look and feel, though upscale materials help provide a sense of spaciousness. So does the two-tier dashboard, covered with soft-touch material. S models get SofTex leatherette bolsters, with coarse, contrasting seat upholstery.
