Black 2013 Toyota Corolla S FWD 4-Speed Automatic 1.8L I4 DOHC Dual VVT-i 26/34 City/Highway MPG Awards: * 2013 KBB.com Best Resale Value Awards * 2013 KBB.com Brand Image Awards
Toyota's venerable Corolla returns pretty much the same for 2013. It's available in only three trims: base, LE and S. All three are powered by the same 132-horsepower 1.8L engine. The base transmission is a 5-speed manual, but a 4-speed automatic is available. With the 5-speed manual transmission, the Corolla achieves an estimated EPA fuel economy rating of 27 city/34 highway.
All Corollas get electric-assist power steering, which helps provide better responsiveness at high speed plus lighter effort at low speeds, while also enhancing fuel economy.
Refinement is better than expected in such a small car. The new Corolla incorporates many noise reduction measures not common to small cars, such as a 5-layer acoustic-glass windshield and partially shielded wiper blades.
Inside, the Corolla gets various enhancements intended to increase comfort and convenience. For instance, the steering column tilts and telescopes, and the seats are designed to better fit taller drivers. All Corollas have a bench seat in back with space for three adults across. Back seats fold forward for a flat load floor that connects through the trunk. Center console side pockets, front-door pockets, an overhead console, a rear-seat center armrest and an extra storage space above the glovebox are offered.
The list of standard features on the Corolla is impressive for the Corolla's price. It includes power mirrors, power locks, power windows, remote keyless entry, a CD/MP3 stereo with audio input, wheel, air conditioning, anti-lock brakes and electronic stability control. Safety equipment also includes six airbags.
LE models add heated mirrors, upgraded seats, 16-inch wheels and an anti-theft system. The S trim adds alloy wheels, a rear spoiler, a chrome exhaust, fog lamps, sport seats and sporty Optitron gauges.
Options on both the LE and S include navigation and a power moonroof.
Low Cost To Operate
The 2013 Corolla gets a few minor visual upgrades to the exterior of the car. Most notable is a new grill design, but LE Corollas also get a chrome strip around the beltline giving the car a more upmarket look. The LE and S trims also get an upgraded Display Audio system featuring a 6.1-inch touchscreen and six speakers.
The Toyota Corolla has a longstanding reputation for being one of the most affordable small sedans available. It's known for being reliable, inexpensive and for offering a strong list of safety features. The base level Corolla is simply equipped, but still includes air conditioning, remote keyless entry, power windows, anti-lock brakes, stability control and six airbags. Mileage is estimated at 34 mpg on the highway.
