New For 2013

A new, 6.1-inch touch-screen display is now standard in all but base Corollas. All models receive minor grille and exterior trim changes.

Overview

Time catches up with the best of us, even the venerable Toyota Corolla. There are now several compact cars that are more efficient, more luxurious, and—let’s just say it—better than the Corolla, which is entering its last year before an expected 2014 redesign. The Corolla’s 1.8-liter engine, for instance, relies on a four-speed automatic or a five-speed manual transmission, whereas the Chevrolet Cruze and the Hyundai Elantra, among others, come with more-modern and more-fuel-efficient six-speed transmissions. The Corolla’s interior is logically laid out and fits together well but doesn’t come close to the materials quality of the Ford Focus’s or the technological competence of the Hyundai Accent’s. The Corolla received modest enhancements last year—namely, restyled front and rear fascias—but it still looks and feels like a considerably older car than the best competitors. Having noted its shortcomings, we still think that the Corolla is worthy of consideration, simply because few cars have been so dependably good for so long. Perhaps that’s why few compacts sell as well.

Safety

Front, side, and side curtain air bags; ABS; traction and stability control; and a tire-pressure monitoring system are standard.

2014 Toyota Corolla Right Rear Euro Spec
Discussion of the Toyota Corolla in the context of it being "sporty" or "upscale" may ring hollow for many that consider the compact sedan as being the very definition of basic transportation. Yet with the addition of LED lighting, more technological integration, and at the very least, more interesting styling than its nondescript predecessor, shows that Toyota is making an attempt to make its compact standard-bearer a little more interesting.

The Toyota Corolla has long been one of the bestselling models in its class, but how will the new car stack up in the crowded compact sedan segment? To see, we pitted the 2014 Toyota Corolla sedan's specifications against those of its closest rivals.
2014 Toyota Corolla Teaser Image
Toyota has released additional teaser images ahead of the 2014 Corolla's June 6 reveal. The images appeared on Facebook and include the center stack, headlight, and wheel as well as a previously released image of the lower front fascia and fog light.

Update: Toyota has released two more teasers for the 2014 Corolla. We now have a look at the sedan's grille badge and lower front fascia. It is now clear that the production car will carry over the large lower intake and thin upper grille from the Corolla Furia concept, down to the upper-grille plastic webbing; however, the lower intake looks a little less flared and radical than on the concept.

Our spy photographers caught the 2014 Toyota Corolla out testing, marking the third time we've spotted the future compact sedan on development runs. Even with all the camouflage and cladding, it's clear that the 2014 Toyota Corolla will hew quite closely to the Furia concept.

AIR BAGS:FRONTAL:SENSOR/CONTROL MODULE
Summary
Southeast Toyota Distributors, LLC (SET) is recalling certain models interspersed through model years 2009 through 2013 as follows: model year 2009-2012 Tacoma, 4Runner, Camry, Camry Hybrid, Prius, and RAV4; model year 2009-2010 Avalon, FJ Cruiser, and Highlander Hybrid; model year 2010-2013 model year Corolla, Sienna and Tundra; model year 2009-2013 Highlander and Venza; model year 2012 Prius V; and model year 2010-2012 Sequoia. During modification by SET to include accessories such as leather seat covers, seat heaters or headrest DVD systems, these vehicles may not have had the passenger seat occupant sensing system calibration tested. Without passing the calibration test, the occupant sensing system may not operate as designed.
Consequences
If the front passenger seat occupant sensing system is out of calibration, the front passenger airbags may not deploy or they may deploy inappropriately for the passenger's size and position. This could increase the risk of personal injury during the event of a vehicle crash necessitating airbag deployment.
Remedy
Southeast Toyota will notify owners, and dealers will test the sensitivity of the occupant detection sensors, and recalibrate them as necessary. The recall began on March 21, 2013. Owners may contact Southeast Toyota at 1-800-301-6859.
