The Corolla is right on target, for most people and ranks among the top models in its class. It combines the practicality and frugal fuel economy that compact-sedan buyers want with a roomy interior, amenities, standard advanced safety features and a token of style.

The Corolla is one of the roomiest in its class with a surprisingly spacious rear seat with ample leg room. But it's small enough for easy maneuvering and parking. And it's one of the best-riding compact sedans we've tested, absorbing bumps with only muted impacts.

All Corolla sedans are powered by a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine mated to a continuously variable transmission -- except the sportier SE, which gets a six-speed manual transmission. With the CVT our Corolla LE delivered an excellent 32 mpg overall and stretched highway mpg to 43. Performance, though, was just adequate.

Best Version to Get
The LE trim strikes the best balance of features and price. For those who want a fully-loaded compact sedan, XLE and XSE models include a power driver's seat and heated front seats. No leather interior is available, but the top models models have Toyota's synthetic Softex faux leather.
