2010 Toyota Corolla Review
As far as automobiles are concerned, it is quite difficult to pick a brand better more efficient than Toyota in almost every sphere. Talk about efficiency, design, sleekness and overall functionality, Toyota vehicles have set a standard in the automobile industry. While the enviable brand has manufactured lots of models and road-friendly vehicles, there is a model that stands out – the Toyota Corolla.
Like the prior model, the 2010 Toyota Corolla compact sedan is available in five trim levels – the base CE trim, the LE trim, the Sporty S trim, the XLE trim, and the XRS. Base Corollas generally come standard with 15-inch steel wheels, air conditioning with air filter, a tilt and telescoping steering wheel, power mirrors and an MP3/WMA-capable CD stereo with a supplementary audio jack. The LE adds power windows and locks, along with body-color exterior mirrors to the base features. For the Corolla S trim, the LE’s equipment upgrades come at extra-cost options but feature 16-inch steel wheels, underbody spoilers, fog lights, sport seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel option and an additional pair of stereo speakers.
All the available Corolla trims offer more powerful optional engine – a 2.4-liter four-cylinder copied from the successful Toyota Camry that produces 158 horsepower. It is available only in the sport-themed deluxe Corolla XRS, which features a quicker steering, larger wheels and a front strut tower brace for improved handling. Although the XRS trim boasts an amazingly strong engine, it does not deliver particularly exciting sporting drive you’d expect and consumes more fuel than you’d expect in a Toyota Corolla trim.
The 2010 Toyota Corolla normally gets the job done with a smooth and comfortable ride. It is one of the many reasons the Corolla will sustain its status as the world’s most successful automotive brand – not necessarily because it is the very best in all other spheres. Its fuel economy is one of the very best around and given the base 1.8-liter engine, you can be sure of the sedan’s ruggedness and absolute reliability. The vehicle is also more compliant than the typical compact sedans in its category. Its controls are also outstanding, though most sedans these days have generally improved on this part. It is solid on the road and can be easily maneuvered in tight spaces.
Some aspects could have been better though; the interior materials could have been much better. In fact, some prior models better the materials used for this model. Its handling is great, but maybe not as sleek and smooth as handling of the previous model. Regardless, the sedan maintains its class among the very best in its category.
Safety is what Toyota has excelled in over the years and continued the tradition with this model. In the safety department, the 2010 Toyota Corolla features antilock brakes, stability control, front-seat side airbags, full-length side curtain airbags, and active front head restraints. Only the XRS trim features four-wheel disc brake; the other trims maintain rear drums. The sedan boasts other lovely safety features that are easy to use. If safety is one factor you strongly consider in a vehicle, then you can give Toyota a B+ for this.
