New Features & Updates on the 2018 Corolla
The Corolla rolls forward into the 2018 model year mostly unchanged from last year after dropping the 50th Anniversary Edition from last year’s lineup. That means, in total, you have six trims to choose from:
- LE Eco
Our personal favorites at Nashville Toyota North? That would definitely be the SE and XSE trims. Each of these comes with premium options and the SE even has some sporty exterior styling elements, as well. With the XSE, you’ll enjoy high-end interior features like SofTex seats and power/tilt slide moonroof.
Does that mean the other trims in the 2018 Corolla lineup aren’t a great value? Absolutely not. In fact, no matter what 2018 Corolla trim or model you go with, you’ll enjoy the benefit of the Toyota Safety Sense P package. This comprehensive suite of driver assistance features includes Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist, Automatic High Beams, and Dynamic Radar Cruise Control.
Every 2018 Corolla model is powered by a 1.8L four-cylinder engine. This delivers 132 horsepower and 128 lb-ft torque in every model except the LE Eco. The LE Eco actually improves the horsepower number to 140 through some smart powertrain tweaks.
The History of the Toyota Corolla
The Toyota Corolla was released into the North American market in 1968. Toyota released the vehicle in three different body styles: two door coupe, four door sedan, and two door wagon. The Corolla was notable for its fuel efficiency and began slowly building its now legendary reputation.
Responding specifically to North American consumer feedback, Toyota began increasing the size and engine power of the Corolla during the 1970’s and 80’s. This helped increase the appeal of the compact car, but the factory was able to also maintain the vehicle’s quality fuel efficiency numbers.
Over the next decades, the factory continue to refine the Corolla and it currently stands as the best-selling vehicle in history at the present time.
