Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection

Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection (PCS w/PD) is designed to help detect a vehicle, pedestrian or bicyclist in certain situations.

Premium Interior

Spacious Interior

Corolla's premium and open interior isn't just nice to sink into. The controls and seats were positioned in a way that increases visibility for a more exciting driving experience.

Street Smarts

Apple CarPlay Compatibility

Apple CarPlay works with your iPhone so you can get directions, send messages or make calls with your voice through Siri Eyes Free, and listen to music -- all while staying focused on your drive.

Remote Connect

Remotely locate your Corolla in a crowded lot, start the engine and more using the Toyota app on your smart device.

Feel the Fun

2.0L Dynamic Force Engine

Its efficient, available 2.0L Dynamic Force Engine produces 169 horsepower and is paired with an available Dynamic Shift-CVT, which combines the immediate response of a traditional fixed first gear with the efficiency of a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT).

Mounted Paddle Shifters

Corolla's available mounted paddle shifters let your shift gears without letting go of the wheel. A light touch on either lever gives you lightning-fast gear changes for a more spirited drive.
