5 Reasons You Will Love the 2017 Toyota Corolla

Posted Wednesday, May 24, 2017 by North Hollywood Toyota

Toyota just redesigned the Corolla in 2014, making the compact a true competitor in its segment. So, with great sales numbers and no major complaints, why has Toyota just issued a significant mid-cycle update to this car? We don’t know, but we sure do like the new model!

Los Angeles Toyota dealers are thrilled with the changes and, from what we can tell, consumers are, too. Compact cars have come a long way, and the Corolla is suddenly leading the pack. Here are 5 reasons you will love the 2017 Toyota Corolla!


Fresh New Exterior

The Corolla has never been known for great styling. That is all changing drastically. With subtle sculpting to create a sportier look, refreshed tail lights, LED fog lamps, and an eye-catching honeycomb grille design, the new Corolla is a sight for tired eyes.

While these are small changes, they do make a difference in the appearance of the basic compact car that Corolla is known to be. While the appearance has changed a bit, the great thing is that consumers know they are still getting the quality Toyota vehicle that they are used to—just in a prettier package.

Power Train

The base engine Corolla is a 1.8-liter four-cylinder that gives 132 horsepower. With front wheel drive and continuously variable transmission standard, critics think that the Corolla is underpowered, but what they fail to remember is that the Corolla is affordable, modest, and efficient with great gas mileage. Consumers want these features in a compact car; it’s not a race car and doesn’t need to explode off the line.


While many assume a compact car doesn’t offer a lot in the way of comfort and style inside, the Corolla has a more upscale interior than competitors that match on the price point. The design is upscale and modern, with soft-touch surfaces, an amazing infotainment system, and sleek comfortable seating. There’s ample room for both driver and passenger to ride in comfort.


The Corolla cockpit is chock full of technology to make your drive both fun and safe. The centerpiece is the 6.1-inch touchscreen infotainment system featuring voice recognition. Most audio and climate controls are on the infotainment screen, which cuts down the clutter on the dash. With a rearview camera, Siri Eyes Free, Bluetooth, a USB port, and 6-speaker audio, the tech in the Corolla gives you what you need, and then some.

Cargo Space

When you think “compact car,” you probably think commuter work car, not a weekender. That’s because compact cars are not known for their cargo space. The Corolla offers a solid 13-cubic-feet of storage space with a split folding rear seat to accommodate larger items. So, whether you are getting groceries or hitting yard sales, you can fit in all your purchases.

These 5 features are great selling points for the newly reintroduced 2017 Toyota Corolla, but they’re just the tip of the iceberg. Los Angeles Toyota dealers are standing by to help you discover all the amazing features that the new Corolla has to offer.
