The all-new Corolla has come with a slew of new changes. This has made this compact car a very premium vehicle for consumers. I had a chance to spend time in the XLE model.
In the Washington DC metropolitan area, I was quite impressed by Toyota Safety Sense 2.0 features. It comes with features like a brake hold and a slew of technology features that provide for active safety. Features include a pre-collision warning system with pedestrian detection. There is adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning and also an auto-braking system. I found all these features quite useful for driving around DC.
In the model I drove I was also able to enjoy the leather-wrapped steering wheel. There is a very good JBL premium audio system. It also had nice leather surfaces and an interactive eight-inch touchscreen navigation system. You also get great fuel economy. It is EPA rated 37 miles per gallon on the highway. There is seating for five.
The Corolla XLE has a base price of $23,950. With options like the premium audio system, the adaptive front lighting system, and paint package it came out to a delivered price of $28,084. For more information, you can visit www.Toyota.com.
