2021 Corolla

The 2020 model year brought a refresh to the Corolla. The Corolla rides on the New Toyota Global Platform -- an engineering decision that dramatically improves the Corolla's rigidity. The new model also ditches the old torsion-beam rear suspension in favor of a rear multi-link setup. This shift produces a smoother ride quality and more precise handling overall. Toyota has kept the old model's standard 1.8-liter engine, but a new 2.0-liter option with 169 horsepower is available as well. Drivers seeking optimal fuel efficiency will be happy to know that Toyota has added a hybrid model to the lineup too.

The new model gets significant styling updates as well. Overall, the Corolla goes for a sportier aesthetic than the previous model. A more prominent grille, angular headlights, and crisper body lines all contribute to the look.

Additionally, Toyota has expanded its Toyota lineup to include two body styles. The conventional Corolla sedan offers a roomy interior and a sleek exterior look. If you're looking for a sportier feel and more cargo space, consider the all-new Corolla Hatchback.

2021 Corolla Interior

The 2021 Corolla places a great emphasis on both comfort and ergonomics.

Seating capacity remains at five for the Corolla, and there are new shapes, materials, and features throughout.

The new front seats offer more bolstering and support than the previous generation and are available in the durable yet comfort SofTex material.

  • Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist: This system monitors your lane position and will warn you when you begin to sway. If you continue to drift from your lane then this system can make corrective measures to gently guide you back to your proper lane position.
  • Automatic High Beams: Driving at night can make some people nervous. This system takes some of the stress out by automatically toggling your high and low beams when it detects another vehicle. This can help prevent blinding other drivers on the road. This doubles as a courtesy feature and a safety feature.
  • Dynamic Radar Cruise Control: This safety feature monitors the flow of traffic when you are using cruise control and adjusts your speed to match it.
