2017 Toyota Corolla: Lackluster Performance Outweights Its Other Notable Features

May 16, 2017 01:00 AM EDT | Paul Urban

In spite of being one of the safest sedans around, the 2017 Toyota Corolla somehow doesn't hit it off well with industry experts and enthusiasts. Its notable features are pushed to the side because of its overall lackluster performance.

The 2017 Toyota Corolla is sometimes referred to as nothing but a mere transportation. In actuality, its impressive features should be given credit. However, this is not the case as its driving dynamics and fuel economy are downright disappointing. It seems that its refreshed styling and standard safety features don't make the cut to be considered a worthy vehicle.

Has Toyota made a mistake in the form of its 2017 Corolla? The answer is a definite NO. The 2017 Toyota Corolla is not damned at all. For one, every Corolla comes with Toyota Safety Sense system that includes adaptive cruise control, automatic high beams, lane departure warning and lane-keeping assist, forward collision, and automatic emergency braking.

The 50th Anniversary Special Edition Corolla is even made more exciting and interesting as it comes in Black Cherry Pearl, Blizzard Pearl and Classic Silver Metallic as color options. It boasts of 17-inch alloy wheels that give it distinct riding experience. It also features an aggressively sporty new front end, suggesting that it is also capable of providing fun in driving.

The interior is just as impressive as it comes bedecked with flowing lines and premium materials. The black piano accents surround the large touchscreen, which delivers even more class and style.

The 2017 Toyota Corolla also ranks high in terms of its Comfort and Quality, alongside its Safety features. Its value for money is still commendable, giving the driving public a "bang for their buck." Comfort and quality are given much importance as it provides considerably more legroom for rear passengers.

Credit has to be given when it is due. The 2017 Toyota Corolla is not a perfect sedan as nothing really is. It may have lackluster performance for having less power than desired, but it makes up in other aspects. It is definitely not a bad option as it is most of the time perceived to be.
