2015 Toyota Corolla OVERVIEW

A car that knows how to woo consumers, the Corolla keeps racking up sales without breaking a sweat. While other compact sedans might be more distinctive or fun to drive, none of them has the magic formula that makes the Corolla irresistible to such a large contingent of buyers.

What's New for 2015

Redesigned just last year, the Corolla receives detail changes only.

Choosing Your Toyota Corolla

The Corolla excels as a comfortable, hassle-free commuter car. You get pleasant interior details, predictable road manners, and just the right balance of features and affordability. To keep things simple, there's only one available engine, a 1.8-liter four-cylinder that makes 132 horsepower, or 140 if you opt for the Eco trim level. As expected, a six-speed manual transmission is standard, although most buyers go with the available four-speed automatic or continuously variable transmission (CVT).

As before, the Corolla is offered in a wide variety of guises:


Comes with all the basics for this class, plus LED headlamps and running lights, Bluetooth phone and a four-speaker sound system with a CD player. The L rolls on 15-inch steel wheels, and a four-speed automatic transmission is available.


Adds numerous convenience features, including a rearview camera, heated mirrors, intermittent wipers, keyless entry, cruise control, automatic climate control, Bluetooth audio and an upgraded touchscreen sound system. The CVT is available at this level and above in place of the six-speed manual, and 16-inch wheels come standard.

LE Plus

Adds extra style to the LE with alloy wheels, fog lamps and piano black interior trim. The available Driver Convenience package includes a navigation system, keyless ignition, satellite and HD radio, integrated smartphone apps and a sunroof (also available separately).

LE Premium

Tacks on a leather-like vinyl interior with heated front seats and driver power.

Also available are "Eco" versions of the LE, LE Plus and LE Premium. They add gas-saving engine and transmission tuning, aerodynamic body trim and low-rolling-resistance tires. Each achieves up to 35 mpg in combined driving, about 3 mpg better than the rest of the line.


Wears more aggressive styling inside and out, plus front sport seats, a leather wrapped-steering wheel with paddle shifters, a Sport driving mode and expanded instrumentation. Note that the S comes with the CVT only.

S Plus

Adds four-wheel disc brakes, a sport-tuned suspension and 17-inch wheels. The S Plus comes standard with the manual transmission, in which case the paddle shifters and Sport mode go away, but the Driver Convenience package comes standard.

S Premium

Tops off the S trim level with the Premium interior treatment, and the CVT returns as standard.

CarsDirect Tip

With its extra conveniences and available CVT, the LE is far more pleasant to live with than the base L, which is too austere for most buyers these days. If you have a sporting bone if your body, we recommend checking out the S Plus or S Premium due to the firmer suspension setup.
