New for 2014

2014 Toyota Corolla was completely redesigned.

Introduction

Without a doubt, the biggest and most important new this year, Toyota 2014 Toyota Corolla. Although there is always a strong seller, the previous generation Corolla was outclassed by the more stylish rival, saving the most efficient fuel in the compact sedan segment. The result is that it has been many years since the Corolla was an obvious choice for a small sedan affordable price.

A bit more has, lower and wider than last year's model 2014 Corolla a more aggressive in the future outside. The front design probably exaggerated polarized consumers (those who already care about the style), but at least it's edgier and more interesting forms of forgettable past. In addition comes the Toyota Corolla 2014 equipped with LED headlamps, an unexpected feature in this segment.

If you're expecting an exciting driving style to accompany the extrovert, you will probably be disappointed. Toyota Corolla maintained its accommodative personality intact. But the new Corolla does not offer decent performance, a comfortable ride, good fuel economy, user-friendly features and superior reliability, all the things that have made over the decades so popular.

A breakthrough in this year is the fuel consumption. All Corolla enjoy it less gas through a series of changes and a new continuously variable transmission (CVT), which takes in the last year in the place of a conventional automatic transmission on some versions as. In addition, there is a new trim level called Echo LE fuel consumption issue. With a revised 1.8-liter engine from the standard Corolla Corolla LE version numbers Eco Best-in-class mpg (compact gasoline automatic transmission equipped) wins, which is a combined rate of 35 EPA mpg 42 mpg highway rating.

Another feature update 2014 Corolla seats more spacious. Rear seat passengers, in particular, have returned almost 5 inches more legroom, which will make it easier to fit child seats to the rear. Toyota also revamped the dashboard to give a contemporary look. The company also has high-quality interior materials and a few new features, including keyless ignition / entry.

Although 2014 Toyota Corolla is significantly better than the old model, it's not a slam dunk, the small sedan segment many strong possibilities. Eternal rival, the Corolla, Honda Civic, recovered design missteps to make this class, while the Mazda 3 and Ford Focus driver preferences remain well stocked. The Hyundai Elantra and well-equipped Kia Forte can not be ignored. That is, the Corolla is much more competitive than ever before, which is to support the already strong sales.

Types of bodywork, trim levels and options

2014 Toyota Corolla is a compact five-seater sedan in four main trim levels: L, LE, LE and S. All except Eco L are also available in Premium Plus and lower panels.

Standard equipment for the base model include L steel wheels 15-inch, LED headlights (only low beam), electric windows and mirrors, air conditioning, tilt steering and telescoping steering wheel, driver seat height adjustment 60/40 split folding rear seat, Bluetooth, steering wheel audio controls and an audio system with four speakers with CD player, USB / iPod and auxiliary jack.

The LE adds steel rims 16 inches, heated mirrors, wipers with variable intermittent, keyless entry, metallic accents cab, cruise control, central locking, climate control, a rearview camera, audio system with six speakers speakers with a 6-inch touch screen display and Bluetooth audio and download capacity phonebook connectivity. Le plus adds alloy wheels and fog lamps, while the upscale LE vinyl provides additional high-end furniture.

The Echo LE LE includes the functionality and adds motor and adjusting the transmission, tires with low rolling resistance, a rear spoiler and a better special aerodynamics. LE Eco Plus adds alloy wheels, fog lights, chrome trim waistline and Eco driving mode, while the LE Premium Eco vinyl upholstery adds superior.

S includes functionality LE and adds a chrome frame grille, fog lamps, body-color exterior mirrors with signal booster, rear spoiler, sport front seats, leather steering wheel, instrument updates, a trip computer and accents blacks. Piano S Plus adds alloy wheels of 17 inches, firmer suspension tuning and rear disc brakes, while the S gets a coating of high-quality vinyl.

Key Options Plus and Premium finishes include a sunroof and driver comfort package, keyless ignition / entry, integration of smartphone applications, satellite radio, HD radio and a navigation system includes.

Powertrains and Performance

Every 2014 Toyota Corolla driven by a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine. For all models except the LE Eco, which produces 132 hp and 128 lb-ft of torque. For the Eco uses an effective capacity version of this engine, which is rated at 140 hp and 126 lb-ft of torque.

A six-speed manual gearbox is standard on the L and S rankings. Optional on L is a four-speed automatic gearbox, while an optional CVT on the S and standard on the LE and LE-Eco. When equipped with the CVT, the S equipped with steering wheel paddles and a sport mode sharpens the response of the transmission and control.

EPA-estimated fuel economy is 31 mpg combined (28 mpg city/37 mpg highway) with the manual six-speed gearbox and is essentially the same thing with the four-speed automatic. With the CVT, you have a little better 32 mpg combined (29 city/38 highway for the LE, 29/37 S). Finally, the Eco, thanks to its special engine efficiency and fuel settings, about 35 mpg gain combined (30 city/42 highway).

Security

Safety features standard on Toyota Corolla are stability and traction control, antilock brakes (front disc / rear drum for those rear wheels are available on the S-coating), front side airbags, side airbags, a knee airbag airbag for the driver and the front passenger seat pillow. A rearview camera is standard on all models except the base of L.

Interior Design and Special Features

2014 Corolla cabin is not exactly thrilling, but the controls are easy to find and use. The radio features tried-and-true volume and control buttons, for example, while the air conditioner has big dials and buttons. The systems of navigation and enhanced audio feature a large touch screen with simple and clear graphics and virtual buttons. Material quality is average, and do not look in general, in the Corolla or feel as expensive as the cars of the Ford Focus and Kia Forte.

The following services connected smartphones Corolla option includes the Bing search engine, Pandora radio, sports and traffic data and stock information. Start with Entune can be a problem, but because you install an application on your phone and register for an account, moreover, is always requires an active data connection to Entune need to use. The touchscreen interface has a simple menu, but sometimes it does not respond to the user's touch.

Like most Toyota, the front seats are soft and comfortable, while those of the S version more robust and have more pronounced hips. There is plenty of space here, even for taller drivers, and the rear seat also has an impressive space. In fact, 41.4 inches, legroom in the back better than most mid-size sedans.

Corolla trunk volume is 13 cubic meters on average, but the wide opening for easy loading and unloading. If you need more space to increase the divisions of the back seat and wrinkles around the capacity.

Driving Impressions

We only had a short time behind the wheel of the Toyota Corolla 2014. So far, the Corolla struck us as pleasant, if bland to drive small sedan. The new CVT works well for standard CVT. There are some drone during acceleration, but it's particularly annoying. Finally, the last drive crown is similar to the previous one. This means that the steering is precise, but rather insensitive (not all sports), while the suspension provides a comfortable ride, even if I never have to describe it as luxurious and pampered. Similarly, the four-cylinder engine will work, but begins when overtaking or aggressive climb the slopes of the mountain to feel breathless.

The best thing about the new Toyota Corolla is that it does not feel as if he was trying to keep up with traffic or able to cope with the unexpected. Instead of inspiring performance, redesigned Corolla that modesty is expressed as a character, and should therefore his legendary reputation for reliability to ensure that the latest version of the compact sedan Toyota finds a home in many garages.

Few people proclaim proudly that their favorite vanilla ice cream flavor, but it's by a substantial margin is popular. You do not know who sings the virtues of the Toyota Corolla, but it's the car of all time bestseller. Coincidence? We think not.

As vanilla, Corolla embodies the word "base". Both are free of personality bias blooming trade and excitement. They are the safest choice, what you might burst under pressure to make a quick decision.

At a time when the automobile manufacturers to throw slogans such as "sports", "transformation", "avant-garde" and "charm" 2014 Toyota Corolla sticks to the basics to make the shape of a huge business. Sent with names such as practical, convenient and reliable, Corolla tapping the vein of car buyers who simply want basic transportation.

Still works good
In recent years, more than 40, the Toyota Corolla has evolved and adapted to changing tastes. It was not a hit, forcing rivals to catch up or asked to not more than an affordable car that is faithful to his duties for more than 100,000 miles. The latter 11 Generation Corolla is no different.

2014 Toyota Corolla LE Eco

2014 Toyota Corolla brings a whole new look by.'s Generic style of the outgoing model, with a redesigned slightly less trivial From the outside, this is still far from inspiring Corolla. Our testers Eco Corolla LE, with plastic sheets, steel wheels and large areas of bare-metal cover of, it is unlikely that the heads turn, even its owner. And outside there is a proposal for love or hate it. This is simply not acceptable and safe.

2014 The Corolla is also average. There are organic shapes without cascading center console or digital displays at two levels. There is a range of traditional horizontal edge door-to-door with air intakes and a set of indicators families. The dashboard is (trim standard on LE and above) in a glossy black surface around the touch screen 6.1-inch dressed. The digital clock remains of past generations, so it outdated compared to most of its competitors look.

Convenience defined
If the aesthetics of the Corolla I agree with you, life have conflicting results. The front seats offer good comfort and space for average-size adults. There is a lack of lumbar support, however, and taller drivers may complain about the lack of telescopic steering wheel travel. At the same time the vertical surface of the dashboard quite high shorter people may seem. The controls are simple and easy to use, with large keys and touchscreen infotainment is to respond quickly to inputs.

2014 Toyota Corolla LE Eco

With a wheelbase 3.9 inches longer than before, the rear seats are an abundance of legroom, measuring offer at least 5 cm longer than most other sedans in this category. This allows for easy installation of child seats to the rear, without interfering with the comfortable front seats. Rear passengers about 5 feet and 8 inches could still room a challenge, and fill in all three places (as in most compact cameras) will produce a snug fit.

While the cabin, there are plenty of hard plastic, but it does not not seem expensive. The usual contact points to provide sufficient padding to avoid elbow problems, and it is an acceptable amount of internal memory. The load capacity is only average for the class, too, with 13 cubic feet trunk.

Under the hood Under the Radar
Subsurface 2014 Toyota Corolla is more or less as usual, too. Base models receive the same series engine 1.8-liter 132-hp four-cylinder engine driving the front wheels through an automatic transmission with four speeds archaic. If you replace a manual transmission is a new six-speed manual gearbox five-speed last year.

Our test vehicle, the eco-trimmed, but gets a new Valvematic system with variable intake valve lift and timing. This increases the force 140, but the torque decreases from 128 to 126 Nm.

2014 Toyota Corolla LE Eco

The big change under the hood is the addition of a continuously variable transmission (CVT) is available throughout the base, but L trim. With the CVT Automatic Valve Engine and EPA-estimated fuel economy Corolla is increased to 35 mpg combined (30 city/42 highway). This is an increase of 4.3 mpg combined over non-Eco models. In his time with us, we were an average of 30.5 mpg highway, beating estimates of 42.7 mpg on the highway and highway heavy workout.

Good MPG average marginal acceleration
With these positive figures for fuel consumption, we expect the performance to suffer, and testing confirmed our suspicions. The acceleration is good, which requires 9.2 seconds to 60 mph (with 1 foot of rollout like on a drag strip 8.9 seconds) to reach. Compared to the Ford Focus and the new Mazda 3 2014, reaching the finish line in 8.3 seconds, the Corolla feels much slower. The CVT transmission makes for itself, with a slow reaction and typical CVT drone.

In braking tests required our Corolla 130 feet at 60 miles per hour, each of which is shorter than the Focus and Mazda 3-131 and 133 meters to stop. Honda Civic Group holds 124 meters. Like the others, the Corolla has been featured in panic stops. The brake pedal was firm moderate distances were consistent after several steps and the car held its line.

Take the good with the bad
Despite the acceleration is insignificant, also leads the Corolla is where you can expect: Commuting. In surface streets Prius acceleration as appropriate. And even if the CVT can be passionate, loyal doubt notice Corolla be disturbed.

The lack of unity of engine braking means that you are the brakes more than you would take with a conventional gearbox. Several of transmission (Sport and brakes), to solve this problem, but it will reduce the fuel consumption during acceleration or cruising.

Despite a slow start getting faster, Corolla exceeds spendthrift with relative ease. Although the behavior of the CVT steals a little faith, do not you hang when you place a semi-trailer.

2014 Toyota Corolla LE Eco

At highway speeds the suspension torsion beam rear felt tight in the provisions sewing concrete on the streets of Southern California. Grooves rain, also, the Corolla has walk more than we would like. As a result, we have to do more than we have to be behind the wheel. Although still within acceptable without wind and road noise.

With the number of handling trailing its competitors, the Corolla is really in his element on twisty roads. Roll is abundant and there is little feedback through the steering wheel any idea what the front tires are doing. The CVT, which draws maintained at high engine speeds, not quickly respond to rapid changes in throttle position. But let's be honest: The Corolla has no intention of sport so that these gaps role.

40 million owners can not be wrong. Or can they?
While its base-ness 2014 Toyota Corolla LE Eco will likely exceed its delivery in a docile and reliable. With the basic set-hum only $ 16,800 and as-tested price of $ 19.735, it is a wise choice for those who need a long-term commitment that will fit into a tight budget.

But those who expect more will do well to see the competition Corolla: in particular, the 2013 Honda Civic, which has a reputation for reliability and durability. For essentially the same price, Civic offers more personality, style and best feeling that a little more for your money. Stylish, brand new Mazda 3 is definitely worth considering for its intervention driving dynamics, make some sacrifices elsewhere. In order to complete the group is the Ford Focus, which remains one of our top picks in the industry for its all-round excellence.

Despite the fact that 2014 Toyota Corolla looks and behaves as it would be from his contemporaries, a few years ago, we are confident that they can sell their reputation alone. Peace of mind, such as vanilla as can be, is the latest attraction for pragmatic buyer. It just happens, we suspect that it will lead more in the strict sensitivity.

My toaster broke last week. Halfway through the cooking process of my gourmet breakfast Pop-Tart, shit what, so my joys caught with a little help morning inside. To remedy the situation, I dared to save a large box, which is located in the entrance of the toaster, and I ran a few questions in my mind. I need two or four slots? I have to spend over $ 20 on this thing? Do I need a toaster to give me a wider range of cooking skills bachelor pad? After more than two minutes of reflection, I grabbed the cheapest on the shelf, paid and left the store. The new toaster works well.

This kind of shopping experience without emotions is like, I suspect that people decide to buy the Toyota Corolla. This is a very good camera, and a good number of people in the world, the relationship between a car and a driver is not more important than the subject, I feel my toaster. It relatively comfortably accommodate four people? You get a decent fuel consumption? It is easy to drive? Reliable? Are you sure? Corolla checks all these boxes, and so Toyota was able to a little under 300,000 copies in the tenth generation car in 2012 to move (although this figure includes sales of home in Corolla, Matrix deceased)
