5 reasons to buy the 2018 Toyota Corolla

1. Available Eco trim

If you're looking for a compact sedan for around-town driving and commuting, the 2018 Toyota Corolla is a solid choice. All trims feature a 1.8L four-cylinder engine with 132 hp and 128 lb-ft of torque, but the 2018 Corolla LE Eco ups the ante with 140 hp and 126 lb-ft of torque. The LE Eco is also ideal if you prioritize fuel economy, with an EPA-estimated 34 mpg combined.

 In comparison, the base 1.8L four-cylinder with the same continuously variable automatic transmission returns an EPA-estimated 32 mpg combined.
 If you log many miles weekly, any 2018 Toyota Corolla trim is a great pick.

2. Pleasing performance

The 2018 Toyota Corolla features a standard continuously variable automatic transmission characterized by smooth shifting ability. Bumpy roads feel more cushioned in this compact sedan, while the Corolla remains stable around turns and when traveling at a quick pace. If you're looking for a comfortable daily driver for work or pleasure, you'll find it in this Toyota.

3. Roomy cabin

The five-passenger 2018 Toyota Corolla has a practical interior, with plenty of space for passengers and cargo. The wide doors make it effortless to climb into the compact sedan, where you'll find an ideal balance of legroom—42.3 inches in the front row and 41.4 inches in the rear row. This model also has generous front and rear headroom, with 38.3 inches and 37.1 inches, respectively. Whether enjoying a family picnic or a day of shopping with friends, the 2018 Toyota Corolla's 13 cu-ft of cargo volume is great for day-to-day activities.

4. Intuitive tech features

There's nothing complex about the 2018 Toyota Corolla's infotainment features, which is a good thing! Instead, you'll enjoy this compact sedan's user-friendly systems, which combine physical buttons and touch controls for your convenience. A 6.1-inch display comes standard on the 2018 Corolla and boasts crisp graphics and large on-screen buttons that are easy to see and control. In addition, Bluetooth® connectivity enables hands-free wireless technology and audio streaming, while a USB port provides on-the-go charging. A seven-inch touchscreen display and navigation system with turn-by-turn directions are available for added functionality.

5. Advanced driver aids

The 2018 Toyota Corolla includes a host of standard driver aids to support your daily drive. The standard integrated backup camera with a projected path helps guide you in and out of tricky spots with ease. Additionally, the automatic high beams ensure visibility in low-light conditions, while lane departure warning with steering assist keeps you on your route. There's also a pre-collision system with pedestrian detection, which alerts you of potential hazards and activates the braking system if you're slow to react.
