I enjoyed my week spent in the Toyota Corolla XSE. In the world of compact vehicles, the Corolla has been a champion for decades. It has long been a global sales leader. The new model does not disappoint. Underneath the hood is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 169 Horsepower and 151 pound-feet of torque.
The model, I drove also has 18-inch alloy wheels with paddle shifters in a sport drive mode. I spent my week driving in the Washington DC metropolitan area. My drives took me on I-66 and I-495. I also drove on I-270 all the way to I-70 in Hagerstown and I-81 in the North Eastern part of West Virginia. The ride in the Toyota Corolla XSE is smooth and comfortable. It also features Toyota Safety Sense 2.0 pre-collision, and lane tracing assist. I was also impressed by the JBL sound system in the model I drove.
The JBL sound system comes along with the premium audio package with an 8.8-inch touchscreen. With the subwoofer, I was able to hear a lot of the lows and the mid ranges and the dynamic sound. The music I made with the Carnegie Mellon music department was pronounced. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are integrated into the Toyota Corolla XSE. It also had heated seats.
Another feature I loved was the wireless charging and the digital dashboard. The Toyota XSE is also fuel efficient you get an EPA-rated 38 miles per gallon on the highway.
