2013 Toyota Corolla – $17,025 base, Average increase of $239
The Corolla (2012 model shown in gallery below) now benefits from an improved sound system display that includes a 6.1-inch touch screen, which appears on other new 2013 Toyotas as well. The six-speaker sound system standard on the Corolla LE and S trims includes an aux audio jack, a USB port with iPod connectivity, MP3/WMA playback capability, and Bluetooth-based music streaming. The Corolla gets a tweaked front grille on all trims plus additional chrome trim on the Corolla LE. Base prices range from the manual-transmission 2013 Corolla L at $17,025 to the $19,855 2013 Corolla S with a four-speed automatic.
2013 Toyota Matrix – $20,070 base, Average increase of $521
The four-door Toyota Matrix hatch still offers available all-wheel drive and two engines. The Matrix base model now gets a sound system with an AM/FM/CD head unit and a 90-day trial of satellite radio, with six speakers, Bluetooth, and a USB port with iPod connectivity. The 2013 Toyota Matrix S, which gets a price bump of $700 over last year’s model, receives Toyota’s Display Audio with the 6.1-inch touch screen. Base prices range from the manual-transmission 2013 Toyota Matrix L at $20,070 to $23,210 for a 2013 Toyota Matrix S with all-wheel drive and a four-speed automatic.
2013 Toyota Sienna – $27,295 base, Average increase of $466
The Toyota Sienna four-cylinder entry-level model is gone for the 2013 model year. In its place, the 3.5-liter V-6 remains, with a base price of $27,295. Though that’s about $1500 more than a 2012 Sienna with the 2.7-liter I-4, we’re guessing few people were opting for that powertrain combination in the first place. Otherwise, the front-drive XLE trims get the biggest bump, at $655, while the all-wheel drive XLE and Limited variants see a $755 price increase. Sienna LE gets easy-clean fabric seats, and an eight-way power driver’s seat and four-way front passenger seat. A blind spot monitoring system is now standard on the 2013 Sienna Limited and available on the SE and XLE. Base prices range from the seven-passenger 2013 Sienna entry-level model to $42,085 for an all-wheel-drive 2013 Toyota Sienna Limited seven-passenger minivan.
2013 Toyota Tacoma – $18,365 base, Average increase of $150
The Tacoma’s TRD Sport package has been discontinued for the 2013 model year on the Tacoma. All 2013 Tacomas get the Display Audio and its 6.1-inch touch screen, and daytime running lights. Certain trims now offer a Limited package that includes Softex leather-like heated seats, privacy rear glass, a HomeLink rearview mirror, an upgraded sound system, and 18-inch chrome wheels. Models equipped with that package also get Limited badges and extra chrome trim. Base prices range from the rear-drive $18,365 2013 Toyota Tacoma Regular Cab with a four-cylinder engine and manual transmission to the four-wheel-drive 2013 Toyota Tacoma, priced at $28,935, which comes as a Double Cab V-6 long-bed model with a five-speed automatic.

The 2013 Scion xD four-door hatchback receives smoked headlight housings and an available blue and black paint combination.

The speedometer now has a white gauge face, while the trim around the AC controls and cup holders has been changed. Base prices range from the 2013 Scion xD with a manual transmission at $16,500 to the automatic-transmission model at $17,300.
