Toyota announced earlier today (Aug.27,2013) pricing for their 2014 Toyota Corolla. For the L grade Corolla equipped with a six speed manual transmission as standard, pricing starts at $16,800 plus an $810 destination charge and can go all the way up to $20,100 minus any options for the much raved Eco Plus model (capable of 40+mpg)
The compact car family sedan segment is one of the most competitive segments in the car market today and Toyota has taken certain design risks on their 2014 Toyota Corolla (particularly to their exterior and interior design) to stay king and overall competitive with the small car market.
For some of Corolla drivers that opt for the L grade model, some class leading standards include low beam LED running lights as standard as well as eight passenger airbags as standard.
Most Corolla buyers will go for the LE trim that adds such niceties as a backup monitor, climate control, cruise control, keyless entry and a better audio system (entune audio). The big news in this trim is the addition of a CVT transmission as standard, which not only boosts performance a bit, but more importantly, fuel efficiency.
S grade models offer 17 inch alloys as standard as well as a re-tuned suspension and rear discs out back. Matching this improved suspension is a more aggressive looking front end with piano black finish. Inside you get paddle shifters mated to your CVT as well as a leather wrapped steering wheel and nicely bolstered seats.
The big news for this little Corolla comes with the Eco Plus model. Thanks to a 140HP valvematic four cylinder specially tuned for economy matched up to Toyota’s CVT, allows for Eco plus buyers to achieve a combined EPA rating of 42 MPG. Pricing on Eco Plus starts at $18,700
The 2014 Toyota Corolla is as competitive for this class as ever, and with affordable pricing, is poised to be a class leader once again.
