2017 Toyota Corolla Warrenton

Considering buying a new Toyota Corolla but not sure what to expect from the new 2017 model? Read on to discover what sets this new model apart from previous models.

Safety

The most significant change you will notice in the 2017 Toyota Corolla is the addition of more standard safety equipment. If you are considering whether the 2016 or the 2017 model would be best for your needs, keep in mind that the 2017 will deliver more standard safety features. Standard safety features on all Corolla models now include adaptive cruise control, pre-collision braking with pedestrian detection, automatic high-beam headlights, and lane departure warning with steering assist. Last year, all of those features were optional.

 

50th Anniversary Model

Debuting in 1966 in Japan, the Toyota Corolla was introduced to the United States just two years later. Toyota is now celebrating the original debut of the Corolla by introducing a 50th Anniversary model. This is certainly a significant occasion, as the Corolla was the first Japanese manufactured vehicle that many Americans purchased. After owning one Corolla, many consumers stayed with the Toyota brand.

With the anniversary model, consumers will be able to enjoy an Entune audio system complete with a 7-inch screen, 17-inch alloy wheels, and special anniversary badging. Black and black cherry interior accents are available with the anniversary model.

 

Tech Features

All 2017 models also feature a standard backup camera along with a new front end and redesigned climate controls. In addition, the available Entune audio system offers a larger screen, as well as Scout GPS Link.

 

Drivetrain

Among other changes consumers will notice is the addition of a continuously variable automatic transmission as standard on the base L model. The 4-speed automatic was optional while the 6-speed manual transmission was standard last year.

 

XSE

The 2017 Corolla lineup is also now expanded with the addition of the XSE, a sporty model.
