"The world's most popular compact sedan will remain a legendary value in the segment."
So says Toyota in their press release announcing the pricing for the 2014 Corolla and we have to say they are somewhat right.
The 2014 Toyota Corolla will start at $16,800 (excluding a $810 destination charge) and that will land you the base L model with a 1.8L four-cylinder engine with 132 horsepower and a six-speed manual. Standard equipment includes LED headlights, body-colored side mirrors, fifteen-inch steel wheels with wheel covers, a four-speaker sound system, Bluetooth, a tilt/telescoping steering wheel, and eight airbags. For $600 more, you can order a four-speed automatic.
For most buyers, the Corolla LE will be their model of choice. Starting at $18,300, the LE gets a continuously-variable transmission, keyless entry, cruise control, climate control, 6.1-inch touchscreen, and Toyota's Entune infotainment system. Pony up an extra $400 and you can get the LE Eco which gets a different, tuned-up version of the 1.8L four-cylinder that sees more power (140 horsepower) and better fuel economy (30 MPG City and up to 42 MPG Highway).
Wrapping up the Corolla lineup is the Corolla S which begins at $19,000. The S starts off with a modified front fascia design that features a lower front grille with a piano black finish and rear lip spoiler. You have the choice of a CVT or a six-speed manual. Standard equipment includes a piano black instrument panel, sport cluster gauge, and sport seats.
