2017 Toyota Corolla Performance Banner

The 2017 Toyota Corolla is a cost-effective sedan with broad appeal in its segment. Of course, that doesn’t mean it falls in line with your run-of-the-mill compact cars. From its exterior styling, to its powertrain, to its chassis and body, the Corolla Sedan effortlessly blends performance with utility, resulting in a drive that’s neither boring nor impractical. Look below to see what the new Corolla Sedan can do!

Notable Power and MPG Ratings

The 2017 Toyota Corolla offers two variations of the same engine. All trims, apart from the LE Eco, sport a 1.8L 4-cylinder engine that produces 132 hp and 128 lb-ft of torque. The LE Eco reaps the benefits of an upgraded valvetrain, which pushes total output to 140 hp and 126 lb-ft of torque. The SE is the only trim in the lineup with a 6-speed manual transmission; all others feature a CVT with intelligence and Shift Mode. As you’d expect from a Toyota, the Corolla Sedan’s fuel economy ratings are nothing short of stellar:

  • SE (with MT): 27 mpg city/35 mpg highway*
  • CVT Models (with 16-inch wheels): 28 mpg city/36 mpg highway*
  • LE Eco (with 15-inch wheels): 30 mpg city/40 mpg highway*

Composed Ride Quality

The Corolla isn’t all style without substance; its unitized body and aerodynamic look reduce noise and elevate handling and fuel-efficiency. Independent MacPherson strut front/torsion beam rear suspension systems work in tandem with front/rear stabilizer bars to shake off road turbulence for a smooth ride. Whether you’re commuting to work, or zipping through Westminster, this five-seater promises an equable, sometimes energetic disposition.
