2014 Toyota Corolla has a starting price of $16,800 in the United States

Article by Christian A., on August 27, 2013

Toyota has just announced the pricing for the redesigned 2014 Corolla a.k.a. the most popular compact sedan in the world. As expected, the 2014 Toyota Corolla will be available in four distinct grades: L, LE, S and the LE Eco. The 2014 Corolla will have a base price of $16,800 for the L grade with a six-speed manual transmission.

For the model featuring a 4-speed automatic transmission, Toyota wants just $17,400. Some of the standard features found on the 2014 Toyota Corolla are the backup monitor, climate control, cruise control, keyless entry and Entune Audio which includes the 6.1” touchscreen. The 2014 Corolla S is available at $19,000, $60 cheaper than the outgoing model.

Corolla S is available with a aggressive lower front grille with a piano black finish and chrome surround, unique suspension tuning for the 17-inch wheel package, paddle shifters (with CVTi-S) to actuate sequential 7-speeds, sport cluster gauge with TFT meter, piano black instrument panel, supportive sport seats and leather steering wheel cover.

The 2014 Corolla LE Eco is available for $18,700 and features a 140 hp Valvematic-equipped engine, improved aerodynamics and unique CVTi-S tuning.

According to Toyota, the Corolla LE Eco has an EPA rating of 42 mpg on the highway when equipped with an automatic transmission. The Corolla adds two new models to the LE, S, and LE Eco grades. The Plus model adds alloy wheels plus select features as standard equipment. The Premium model adds alloy wheels and Softex seats as standard equipment.

By having an exterior whose design is more chiseled and expressive, the new Corolla is able to instantly offer a remarkable visual impact. Looking at it closer, the design in fact gives a more detailed expression of the “Iconic Dynamism” motif. This same theme was originally released under the Corolla Furia Concept, a model officially launched during the North American International Auto Show.

The front fascia of the new Corolla is more expressive given that the details on top of the large trapezoidal grill have been made more pronounced and sharper. This has been positioned below the thin intake just under the hood. Despite being longer by 3.9 inches (99 mm) compared to the present model, this newest sedan remains to have a more compact look. The reason for this is that the basic shape is one that narrows not only towards the front but also to the rear. With this, the wheels are highlighted as well as the vehicle’s wheels-to-the-corner stance.

Making the new Corolla even more notable are the proportions that are sportier and tighter. These are placed on a wheelbase, which when compared to the current version, is longer by at least 3.93 inches (100 mm). Even if the new Corolla is not moving, it expresses a more dynamic form for this compact sedan. Making this possible is a combination of a narrower front and rear, compact overhangs, and wheels that have been pushed out on the corners.

Upon looking at the front section, this new Corolla is able to show that it continues the design that were implemented in newer sedans from the brand like the Avalon and the Camry. Under this design theme, the use of those precisely sculpted surfaces gives this compact sedan a more assertive and smoother feel.
