Toyota’s Corolla might be a Canadian best-selling compact car, but your rear seating passengers would never know its class, Toyota managed to give them the kind of legroom you’d expect in a full-size car – 41.4 inches. This is just one of the many features that take Corolla to the next level and standout in its segment. With fuel economy that encroaches on some diesels, Corolla is at the head of its class!
The 2016 Corolla is pretty special and something Toyota is celebrating with the aptly named Corolla Special Edition for 2016. Toyota will build 8,000 for the model year.
Every Corolla is built around a powerful and efficient 1.8-litre four-cylinder engine, using a responsive six-speed manual, a refined four-speed automatic, or a cutting-edge Intelligent Shift CVTi-S! With a suspension that has been designed to maximize handling and reduce vibration, you can be sure that the Corolla is fun to drive.
Corolla’s styling is daring and expressive, with smooth sculpting to give this compact a sleek drag co-efficient of just 0.28. Inside, the Corolla expresses craftsmanship with a stylish, and functional cabin displaying attention to detail not typically found in its segment. Ornamental stitching, pinstriped elements and black glossy trim with metallic touches convey an upscale, sporty image. Purposefully designed and engineered front seats offer plenty of support for those up front, while increasing room for those riding in the back.
The 2016 Corolla makes an instant impression, with LED headlights standard on every model. Other standard features include audio systems with USB and Bluetooth connectivity, steering wheel-mounted audio controls, power windows and door locks, the versatility of a 60/40 split fold-down rear seat, power adjustable, colour-keyed and heated side mirrors, and a full complement of active and passive safety systems, including the six active technologies in the Toyota Star Safety System.
All this, plus the Corolla’s Canadian-built reputation for legendary quality, durability and reliability –makes Corolla not only easy to love, but also easy to justify!
