Redesigned for 2014, the Corolla has landed right on target, and it now ranks among the top models in its class. It combines the practicality and frugal fuel economy that compact-sedan buyers want with more interior room, upgraded amenities, and a sorely needed shot of style. Overall, it's a reasonable alternative to a larger, midsized sedan.

Overall Owner Satisfaction

Consumer Reports’ Annual Owner Satisfaction Survey can improve the chances of finding a compatible car match. How? Our survey data reveals whether, all things considered, owners would buy the same car again. The answer to that question is what determines our owner-satisfaction rating, which is a powerful piece of intel because it predicts how well a particular model will satisfy other owners.

What Owners Say

"The CVT takes a little getting used to...as you may be used to waiting for the shift in some instances. It is plenty responsive and quick enough in standing starts or accelerating to pass scenarios."

Michael F., MI (2016 Toyota Corolla)

"This car has the newer transmission with bands rather than gears. The acceleration is notably poorer than with my previous Toyota Corolla transmission."

Anonymous, PA (2016 Toyota Corolla)

"This is a economy compact car it drives just like it should. I have purchased 3 of these 2007,2010,2016 one for each child when they started to drive and to carry them through collage or longer. You will not find a better car in this price range period. No problems with any of them. The 2016 has been improved over the older models and drives great. Stop expecting it to compete with more expensive cars. Camrys, accords, mazda6 etc."

Delayna B., FL (2016 Toyota Corolla)

"This is a economy car and based on that I set my expectations lower. The handling is competent if not sporty. Steady of the highway. The CVT transmission acts like a CVT meaning more engine noise and sometimes feels like less pwr than you know the motor has. I wish they would drop the CVT and just go with a good 6 speed automatic."

Dave G., NY (2016 Toyota Corolla)

"Very quiet engine for a CVT. Always has adequate power on tap. Handles well in all weather and has excellent brakes for the class. Could use more active safety features as available options."

Anonymous, OH (2016 Toyota Corolla)

"The 2016 Toyota Corolla is a car that is fun to drive in many respects. The engine is strong and responsive while the handling is nimble and fun to drive. Acceleration is above average for a car in this category with the ability to modify the responsiveness of the vehicle by selecting normal driving mode or sport driving mode. The selection changes the shift characteristics of the transmission resulting in improved acceleration in sport mode. The overall performance of this car in acceleration and handling is well above average."

Anonymous, CA (2016 Toyota Corolla)

"I personally like the styling in the inside of the corolla. After reading what Consumer Reports mentioned about the plastic pieces for décor, I was a little pissed off, because I happen to like the placement of them and how color coordinated they are. So, I don't think that that should be a factor at all, when rating the inside...the remark sounded like the car was "Cheap". Because of this remark I won't get this book anymore....if someone is going to put something that minor in there...forge"

PETE P., NJ (2016 Toyota Corolla)

"The car looks nice. However, I think the body is too close to the ground, catching on curbs or hitting bottom on sharp inclines. The wheel covers are very nice (S version). I would not have ordered a sun roof, but it comes with the S version. The vision from the windows and mirrors is good, making it easy to change lanes and see what is going on around me."
