2013 Toyota Corolla2013 Toyota Corolla
TOP PICK: 2013 Toyota Corolla (base, MT)

STARTING PRICE: $16,230

OVERALL SCORE: 70/100

BEST IN CLASS: Fuel economy (small sedan), value.

HIGHS: Fuel economy, ride, quiet interior, turning circle, controls, crash-test results, reliability.

LOWS: Steering feel, fit and finish.

CONSUMER REPORTS SAYS: The Corolla is a good small sedan, although it is rather bland. The 1.8-liter engine is relatively quiet and responsive. By the standards of the small-car class the Corolla has a comfortable ride. Handling is sound and secure. The interior is put together well, although hard plastic panels and trim abound. We got a very impressive 7.35 L/100KM overall in our test of the 1.8-liter equipped with both automatic and manual transmissions, one of the most frugal among nonhybrids or nondiesel sedans.
