Toyota Corolla L

Toyota Corolla Trim LevelsThe L trim––the base Toyota Corolla trim level––allows you to get from Point A to Point B quite effectively, thanks to its 1.8-liter 4-cylinder engine that produces as much as 139 horsepower.

Each Corolla comes standard with Front-Wheel Drive (FWD) and a unitized body construction. Plus, it is an Ultra Low Emission Vehicle, which is a positive for drivers looking to reduce their carbon footprint.

On the inside, the L trim serves up 60/40 split fold-down rear seating for easy maneuvering while loading or unloading items. You’ll find two cup holders in the front seats, alongside a front USB port for quick charging.

A 7-inch infotainment touchscreen display comes standard with this trim. This system provides Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration for easy access to hands-free phone calls and text messaging, navigation, music, and much more.

In terms of safety, the handy integrated backup camera can help you back into a parking spot or out of the driveway by providing a projected path to follow.

Toyota Corolla LE

The Corolla LE makes its mark by adding convenient touches, such as the automatic climate control with dust and pollen filter. This feature can make sure that everyone on board has a comfortable ride free of pesky allergens.

Unlike the base trim, the LE comes standard with premium fabric-trimmed seating for both the driver and the front passenger. These power-adjustable seats serve as convenient upgrades to make the ride feel comfortable for the entire drive.

Providing a small yet noticeable upgrade from the L trim is the larger 8-inch touchscreen display. Like the 7-inch screen, passengers have access to smartphone integration as well as Wi-Fi Connect, an in-car wireless hotspot. Passengers can stay connected no matter where they are.

Toyota Corolla Hybrid LE

Corolla Hybrid LEUnlike its predecessors or successors in this list, the Toyota Hybrid LE separates itself from the pack with a hybrid motor. While the fuel-efficient Corolla models can hold their own in terms of capabilities, drivers looking to lessen their carbon footprint will enjoy this trim’s EPA-estimated 53 city/52 highway MPG.1

Performance aside, the Corolla Hybrid LE is similar to the standard LE trim. However, a standard ECO driving mode is included with the Corolla Hybrid LE. Every other trim only includes Normal and Sport driving modes.

Toyota Corolla SE

The SE takes things up a notch in the performance department with its 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine that delivers 169 horsepower and 151 lb-ft of torque for even more oomph. Part of what makes the SE such a pleasure to cruise around in is its addition of the Normal and Sport driving modes and a Dynamic-Shift Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT).

Additionally, the SE achieves an EPA-estimated 31 city/40 highway MPG.1 This is a slight increase from the previous two gas-powered trims.

Toyota Corolla XLE

The XLE sports color-keyed heated power outside mirrors that effectively boost your awareness by providing a clear line of sight, no matter the weather. These mirrors come equipped with blind spot warning indicators that watches out for approaching vehicles.

This trim knows how to visually stand out, too. The power tilt/slide moonroof with a sliding sunshade is built for spring and summer days without a cloud in the sky. Its 16-inch alloy wheels provide an even smoother driving experience to go with its aesthetic.

Inside, the XLE offers optional ambient lighting as well as Qi-compatible wireless smartphone charging. These additions not only make for a more vibrant and relaxing ride, but passengers can also cut the cord and charge their phones without anything getting in the way.

Toyota Corolla XSE

Corolla XSEThen, there’s the Toyota Corolla XSE. One feature that sets this configuration apart when it comes to style would be its gray metallic sport side rocker panels and rear spoiler that are sure to turn heads.

The XSE raises the bar with its upgraded 18-inch machined alloy wheels. Meanwhile, the SofTex®-trimmed and heated sport seats up front make for a more dynamic driving experience inside this Toyota sedan. If you’re looking for a sporty ride, the XSE may be calling your name.

Toyota Corolla SE Nightshade Edition

The SE Nightshade Edition stands out in terms of style. Make a lasting impression with stylish features, like black outside door handles, 18-inch black-painted alloy wheels, and blacked-out Corolla, SE, and Toyota badging.

You can’t miss the black front grille with sport mesh insert either, thanks to its bumper. It sports a black Toyota emblem, which lends it a sleek, sporty, and modern look.

Toyota Corolla SE Apex Edition

Whereas the SE Nightshade Edition provides visual upgrades for a sleek drive, the SE Apex Edition boasts more under the hood. The available 6-speed intelligent Manual Transmission (iMT) allows for quick thinking on the roadways, along with its 18-inch black flow-formed aluminum wheels.

It also has a sport-tuned exhaust with a conical-shaped tip and bronze or black side rocker panels. There’s so much to see and experience in the SE Apex Edition.
