Used 2016 Toyota Corolla at Thompson Toyota for Edgewood, MD

If the 2016 Toyota Corolla was somehow competing on a reality TV show it'd probably be voted off in the first few rounds. It's just not an attention-grabbing kind of car. But for a majority of small sedan shoppers, having a car that avoids histrionics is exactly the point. If you're somebody who just wants to set it and forget it with a minimal amount of fuss, chances are you'll find plenty about the 2016 Corolla that's to your liking. Toyota knows the Corolla must remain competitive, so it offers up a number of refinements in audio and infotainment. It also offers more interior enhancements on par with with cars such as the sports-like Mazda Mazda3 and fuel efficient Ford Focus.

Under the Corolla's Hood

Without asking you to wade waist-deep into an engine-technology discussion, we'd like you to know that the 2015 Toyota Corolla is offered with two versions of a 1.8-liter 4-cylinder engine. The first version, used in L, LE and S Corolla models, produces 132 horsepower and 128 lb-ft of torque - not much bragging rights for power, but the fuel economy is strong for the class (see the EPA numbers below).

The second 1.8-liter, in Corolla LE Eco models, gets to tout fuel economy as high as 42 mpg on the highway - superb for a non-hybrid - mated to Toyota's CVTi-S continuously variable automatic transmission. That fuel-conscious CVTi-S also hosts the power in Corolla LE and S automatic-transmission models. A 6-speed manual gearbox is available in Corolla L and S versions, while a 4-speed automatic is available in the Corolla L.

Design of Toyota Corolla

The Corolla sedan's styling has allowed it to move away from an anonymity that the Federal Witness Protection Program can't duplicate to an appealing series of folded edges in search of big wheels and tires to punctuate its stance. The car looks especially good in darker colors. And while the trunk capacity is a pinch bigger than the previous-generation Corolla, the trunk opening could be a tad bit bigger. Telling the real story of Toyota's Corolla sedan means talking about what's inside.

As mentioned previously, this is a very nice interior - even the car's headliner material is impressive. There's plenty of stretch-out space in the front seats, and the long wheelbase gives rear-seat passengers world-record legroom. Rear headroom, however, is compromised by the jaunty sweep of the Corolla's C-pillar/roofline into the trunk, good to look at, but requires ducking from tall-torsoed riders in back.
