Review: 2016 Toyota Corolla S Premium

15 December 2017, Neil Parkhi


The Corolla, just like the Camry, is another type of common vehicle, but is available at a much cheaper price. You may see one anywhere, on the road, on the highway, during a road trip or anywhere. The design of these Corollas had revised front and rear styling compared to the International cars, and a lot of the styling elements from the eleventh generation corolla were from the Toyota Furia Concept Car. The Furia Concept was introduced at the 2013 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. The eleventh generation North American Corolla was introduced in June, and then became available in August in 2013. Every North American Corolla is manufactured in Cambridge, Ontario, Canada, which the car has about 25 percent of the parts coming directly from Japan. The eleventh generation Corolla came with two different inline 4 cylinder engines. One 132 horsepower engine for the standard models, which is what this one has, and a 140 horsepower engine for the Eco models, with either a 6 speed manual gearbox, a 4 speed automatic, or even a 2 speed CVT gearbox.


Given that the Toyota Corolla is a common vehicle, it is reliable, and is a fantastic vehicle for daily use. It is nice and confortable in terms of ride comfort and capabilities. It is also reasonably priced as well. The only downside of the Corolla is the fact that it is small, so it can have limited space in certain areas.
