Compare the 2016 Toyota Corolla

Loading Comparison...


The Toyota Corolla compact sedan offers reliable, inexpensive transportation. The Corolla delivers high value for its moderate price. It looks fresh, with crisp lines, it’s quiet underway, and it boasts all the technology expected by today’s compact-car shoppers. Though classed as a compact, it’s not tiny.

Redesigned for the 2014 model year, the current model represents the 11th generation of the Corolla. A new Special Edition model featuring special trim joins the 2016 Corolla lineup. Otherwise, there are no significant changes for 2016.

Toyota Corolla is among the best-known names in the automotive world, following decades at or near the top of the sales charts in the U.S. The Corolla nameplate has represented basic, trouble-free, and relatively comfortable motoring for 40 years.

Two 1.8-liter four-cylinder engines are used with two different transmissions. Corolla L, LE, and S models come with a 1.8-liter engine is rated at 132 horsepower and 128 pound-feet of torque. A slightly more fuel-efficient version for the Corolla LE Eco makes 140 horsepower (though, of course, it’s more expensive).

Most buyers choose the continuously variable transmission (CVT), which is tuned to provide a nearly linear, reassuring feel when accelerating moderately. As a result, there’s less of the droning common with CVTs. The CVTs offer the best fuel-economy estimates, led by the Corolla LE Eco.

The 2016 Corolla with CVT is EPA-rated at 29/38 mpg City/Highway, or 32 mpg Combined. Corolla LE Eco is rated 30/42 mpg, or 35 mpg Combined.

Corolla L and Corolla S offer a 6-speed manual gearbox. The transmission option for the Corolla L is Toyota’s ancient, sluggish 4-speed automatic. In contrast, the CVT in the S model echoes a 7-speed automatic, with paddle shifters that can select virtual gearchanges.

Little has changed for 2016 except for a new Special Edition model, based upon the sporty Corolla S. Only 8,000 will be sold, in three exclusive colors.

Infotainment systems are among the better ones in the affordable-car class. In some models, the latest Entune system features navigation and apps.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gave the Corolla a five-star overall crash-test rating, with five stars in every test except rollover. In testing by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, the 2015 Corolla earned top Good ratings, except for a Marginal score in the small-overlap frontal test. Only a few active-safety systems are available in Corollas.


The 2016 Toyota Corolla comes in L, LE, S, and new LE Eco trim levels. All but the L also come in Plus or Premium form.

Corolla L ($17,300) comes with air conditioning, fabric upholstery, Bluetooth hands-free phone/audio, LED low-beam headlights, a 60/40 split fold-down rear seat, power locks/windows, Entune Audio with 6.1-inch touchscreen, USB/iPod connectivity, and 15-inch steel wheels. A 6-speed manual is standard; a 4-speed automatic ($600) is optional.

Corolla LE ($18,735) comes with the CVT and upgrades with automatic climate control, steering-wheel controls, voice recognition, 16-inch steel wheels, heated power mirrors, remote keyless entry, cruise control, and a rearview camera. LE Plus ($19,135) adds integrated foglamps and 16-inch alloy wheels. LE Premium ($22,195) includes SofTex-trimmed heated front seats, a power driver’s seat, and a moonroof.

Corolla LE Eco ($19,135) gets the more fuel-efficient 140-horsepower engine with CVT, 15-inch low-rolling-resistance tires, a rear spoiler, and aerodynamic underbody covers. LE Eco Plus ($19,835) and LE Eco Premium ($22,895) models are offered.

Corolla S ($19,295) features a Sport drive mode that firms up steering and quickens throttle response and paddle shifters for the CVTi-S, along with sport-bolstered seats, a multi-information display, and special trim. S Plus comes with 6-speed manual ($21,665) or CVT ($20,065). S Premium ($23,125) comes only with CVT. Special Edition ($20,635) features 17-inch black alloy wheels, black upholstery with red stitching, and red interior accents.

Eight airbags are standard, including a driver’s knee bag and passenger seat-cushion bag.


The Corolla is conservative in appearance. Attractive, with crisp lines, but not particularly distinctive.

LED headlights and running lights help give the Corolla a sportier aura. So does the lengthened wheelbase of the current generation (2014-2016), which added some interior space.

Corolla LE models have a grille that differs from the one in the base L version, while the S sedan gets a blacked-out grille, with a bolder airdam flanked by foglamps. Decisively angled frontal shapes, coupled with an upward-tilted beltline toward the rear, help create a wedge profile.


Roomier than expected, the Corolla can hold four six-footers. Long cushions and full adjustments help make front seats comfortable, while the driver gets a relaxed position, as if in a larger car.

Leg space in back is good; headroom, not so much. Still, for the first time, two long-legged passengers can expect comfort in the back of a Corolla. Outward visibility is good.

Trunk space ranks as average, with a wide opening and low, flat cargo floor. All models have flip-forward back seats.

The cabin has a rather conservative look and feel, though upscale materials help provide a sense of spaciousness. So does the two-tier dashboard, covered with soft-touch material. S models get SofTex leatherette bolsters, with coarse, contrasting seat upholstery.

Driving Impressions

Overall, the Corolla feels refined, though short of best in class. Engine sounds are nicely isolated.

Fuel-efficiency is a strong point and all models run on Regular 87 octane gasoline, so no need for more-expensive Premium. The 2016 Toyota Corolla with CVT is EPA-rated at 29/38 mpg City/Highway, or 32 mpg Combined. Corolla S with CVT gets just slightly less, rated 29/37 mpg. Corolla S or Corolla L with 6-speed manual is rated 28/37 mpg. Corolla L with 4-speed automatic is rated 27/36 mpg.

The Corolla LE Eco model is EPA-rated at 30/42 mpg City/Highway, or 35 mpg Combined. Eco Plus or Eco Premium editions are slightly less thrifty.

Driveability is decent in a CVT-equipped Corolla, though they lack energy from a standing start, especially when is facing a hill or filled with passengers.

That said, a CVT Corolla feels downright jaunty compared to a base model with the 4-speed automatic. Not only is the Corolla L with automatic slow when passing, it consumes more fuel. For this reason, we don’t recommend the Corolla L with the automatic; for the Corolla L, we recommend the 6-speed manual transmission.

The 6-speed manual shift linkage doesn’t reach sports-sedan precision, and the throws are somewhat long, but the clutch operates lightly and predictably, making a stick-shift Corolla easy to drive in stop-and-go commuter traffic.

Despite a bit more horsepower, don’t expect the Eco model to feel discernibly quicker.

Underway, the Corolla rides almost pillow-like, though wiggly rural roads can keep the suspension busy trying to accommodate curves and surface undulations at the same time. Expect some rebounding over railroad tracks and prominent bumps.

Only the sporty Corolla S delivers authentically rewarding handling. The Corolla S suspension is enjoyably taut and controlled, yet free of harshness.


The Toyota Corolla offers low operating costs and high value, excellent fuel-efficiency, and a spacious interior. For most buyers, we recommend the Corolla LE with its nice set of features, smooth ride, and easy-to-use CVT. For more driving fun, opt for the Corolla S, especially with the 6-speed manual. Not only is its suspension more taut, a Sport button can tighten the steering. The ride is firm, yet absorbent and nicely controlled. Avoid the Corolla L with 4-speed automatic.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.


This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.


Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
