Toyota Corolla 2000 sedan
A standard front stabilizer bar has balanced the once-poor emergency handling of this small sedan. The Corolla is a close cousin of the Chevy Prizm. The two differ mainly in styling and in the placement of some controls; the Corolla's are handier, and its trim is a bit nicer. Both models ride comfortably and quietly. Their four-cylinder engine delivers spirited acceleration and excellent fuel economy, and the optional automatic transmission works very well. The front seats are firm and supportive. The rear seat is cramped, however. The Corolla and Prizm are among the few low-priced cars to offer side air bags in front.

Road Test

While still a good, reliable car, the Corolla is not one of the best in this crowded and competitive market segment. It does fairly well in most major areas of performance and design, although it doesn't stand out in any.
