  1. I definitely think there should be red on the dash and steering wheel as well but I still love this car and it’s wheels too but I’d have to have an XSE EDITON AS I HAVE TO HAVE HEATED SEATS IN ANY CAR FOR ME TO BE ABLE TO DRIVE IT LONG TERM

  2. I had one Corolla for 17 years. Ran like new the day I sold it. Best car I ever owned, change the fluids, few sets of tires , it was cheaper to own than a monthly bus pass.

  3. Correction: All Corolla Hybrid models have an e-CVT. It’s a planetary gear setup so technically not an actual CVT. Only the gas versions of the Corolla come with the Direct-Shift CVT with a first gear.

  4. Hybrids definitely make a lot more sense than the forced push for EVs. Everyone could afford hybrids and I think companies should make hybrids standard to lower the entry price.

  5. I sometimes miss my corrolla! So dependable and enjoyed it. Never had issues. Had almost 300k miles on my 2015

  6. Never thought a Corolla could look so good. I owned 2 much older ones but I felt cheap in them. I wouldn’t feel cheap in this one. 👍

  7. I agree with you Joe about getting a hybrid I think the government and industry is pushing hard on full electric vehicles when the infrastructure is not there to support it
    It is the best of both worlds

  8. Looks good and love the mileage. I would consider this (especially with AWD for the snowy winters), but it just seems a little too slow. It doesn’t need to be a GR Corolla, but it should be at least as fast (or faster) than the normal Corolla with the 2.0L engine.

  9. I think the CVT is the same as a Prius eCVT no first gear only 1 gear. Planetary style . The NA corolla with CVT has a torque converter style 1st gear then CVT after.
