The Toyota Corolla has long been one of the most popular family sedans in the United States, and the 2017 version of the vehicle rolls out enough new features for that trend to continue on into the future. While the latest Corolla doesn’t offer the exciting driving dynamics that you would find behind the wheel of a sportier vehicle, it does pack a whole lot of functionality and safety into a pretty affordable purchase. In fact, if you were to write down all the standard features that come in the 2017 Corolla, you would be hard-pressed to come up with any other vehicle in the price range that can compare in terms of safety or tech.

Top Level Safety

One of the best features of the 2017 Corolla is all the safety tech that comes packed inside. The sedan comes equipped with the Toyota Safety Sense system as standard, so you get a bunch of preventative safety tech tools without having to pay extra for them. What that means is you’ll enjoy auto high beams, adaptive cruise, automatic emergency braking, a forward collision warning system and lane departure and lane keep assist. All these features will help ensure that you remain safe while out on the road and that most of the common causes of accidents are stopped before they can end up causing a problem at all.

New Enhancements

On the outside of the Corolla you’ll see that the front-end of the vehicle has been redesigned for an all-new look. The interior is also changed notably. There’s a remodeled instrument panel with a more modern look to it. The Corolla also comes with a new set of climate controls. Overall things aren’t too different, but most of the changes to the Corolla are enhancements.

A Comfortable Family Sedan

The Toyota Corolla prioritizes being a family vehicle over everything else. It offers more rear legroom than other sedans in the class, it offers more comfort features than most as well. There is an excellent amount of trunk space, making it easy to pack in important luggage for family trips or camping excursions.

A Real Budget Vehicle

The Toyota Corolla is the ideal vehicle to purchase when on a budget. With a starting price around $19,000 it’s hard to find another brand-new vehicle that’s outfitted as nicely in the price range. Even the top-end XLE that features a 7.0 inch Entune infotainment unit, heated front seats, a power sunroof and a smart key is available for just over $24,000. No matter what grade of Corolla you decide on, you’ll enjoy an affordable price tag on your purchase.

The 2017 Corolla isn’t for everyone. It isn’t a sports car, it doesn’t get fuel economy like the Prius, but it does offer top level safety features, a good set of tech features, and huge rear seating room, and it does all that on a budget.

The 2017 Toyota Corolla Gets a Serious Makeover

The 2015 Toyota Corolla was a seriously popular vehicle. In-fact it was one of the best-selling mid-sized sedans on the market. Toyota couldn’t afford to just sit around idly expecting success once again, not with the 2016 Honda Civic storming the market with a revamped look. That’s why the company put some of its best designers to work revamping the exterior of the 2017 Corolla. The results are pretty impressive to say the least, and you might find yourself wanting the latest Corolla after you see it.

A Mirai Front End

Do you think the front of the Mirai is awesome, or ridiculous? If you’re one of the folks who like the edgy look the Mirai has the new Corolla is going to be right down your alley. It has the same general shape and it’s edgy indeed. The grill out front flares down opening to a wide almost triangular shape. At either side of that unique grill are triangular gills that help fill out the front while breaking it into three distinct triangular segments. Not only did Toyota change around the grill, it also adjusted the headlights to give them a smoother look. Instead of flaring downward slightly near the inside, the new headlights maintain their shape throughout, a cool improvement if you ask us.

Refined Interior

No photos of the interior are available yet, but you better believe that the 2017 Corolla is going to sport an enhanced interior to go with the refreshed exterior. It might not be changes as radically as the front end of the Corolla is, but it’s sure to offer some features and improvements that are pretty exciting.

More Changes to Come

The 2017 Corolla isn’t on display for the public yet and it’s hard to say exactly what sort of improvements that Toyota has made to the model other than the basics. That being said, there are sure to be some serious tech and performance enhancements in the vehicle. Whether it drives differently is hard to say, but the latest Corolla looks to be a serious contender in the mid-sized segment and something that car buyers should look out for. More information is likely to be released over the next month or two, and the refreshed model should be out on the market sometime in summer for those eagerly awaiting it.
