2017 Toyota Corolla: A Legend 50 Years in the Making
The Toyota Corolla celebrates its 50th anniversary this year, and to celebrate the event Toyota is offering... the same Corolla that we have always known.
Why change a winning recipe after all? Yes, the 2017 Toyota Corolla features several improvements this year, starting with the addition of new safety technologies, but ultimately it remains the same Corolla with its proven reliability, balanced handling, fuel economy and impressive resale value.
More Safety at No Extra Charge in the 2017 Toyota Corolla
The most significant change to the 2017 Toyota Corolla is the addition of the TSS-P package, or Toyota Safety Sense P. This is a grouping of technologies designed not only to warn you of a potential accident, but also to prevent it if you do not react.
These technologies include Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Departure Warning with steering assist, Pre-Collision with Pedestrian Detection, and automatic headlights. Not bad at all for a compact sedan offered from $ 16,390. The entry-level Corolla model is also available with a Bluetooth system and a 6.1-inch touchscreen, as well as 8 standard airbags.
A Fuel-Efficient Engine for the 2017 Toyota Corolla
The 2017 Toyota Corolla is powered by a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine developing 132 horsepower and 129 pound-feet of torque. This engine is paired with a six-speed manual transmission in some versions, but most models in the Corolla range are equipped with a CVTi-S continuously variable transmission.
No matter the gearbox, the 2017 Toyota Corolla always surprises its owner with its impressive fuel economy that can reach 8.4 liters per 100 kilometers in the city, and 6.5 liters per 100 kilometers on the highway.
And if you want an even more fuel-efficient 2017 Toyota Corolla, go for the LE ECO model, starting at $21,190. The same engine propels this version of the Corolla, but its power increases to 140 horsepower. That said, with low rolling resistance tires and other improvements, LE ECO models have an average fuel consumption rating of 7.8 liters per 100 kilometers in the city and 5.9 liters per 100 kilometers on the highway.
