2013 Toyota Corolla | Review, Price, Interior, Exterior, Engine. – Welcome to Neocarsuv.Com, we will provide the latest information about the 2013 Toyota Corolla. 2013 Toyota Corolla is one brand new car from Toyota that was released in 2013. We will also review about the price, interior, exterior and engine of the 2013 Toyota Corolla.
The Toyota Corolla has long been a top choice for those seeking inexpensive, fuel-efficient and reliable transportation. With more than 33 million sold since the nameplate was introduced 40 years ago, this compact has earned plenty of adoring fans. That’s all dandy, but it doesn’t make the 2013 Toyota Corolla an automatic choice for today’s buyer.
The Corolla’s competition is tougher today than it was even just five years ago. Carmakers including Chevrolet, Ford and Hyundai have dramatically stepped up their game in that brief span, and the Corolla feels dated and outclassed compared to the fresher competition. The Corolla’s exterior styling also lacks excitement, while the interior similarly disappoints with drab design and unimpressive materials.
Toyota has given the world’s most popular car a sportier look for the all new model, which has gone on sale in Japan today ahead of its Australian debut at October’s 2012 Sydney motor show. The new Corolla known as Auris in Japan and Europe adopts a design language the company calls ‘Smart dynamism’ and includes sharper body lines, a 55mm lower height and aggressive styling cues such as the narrowed headlights that integrate with a V-shaped grille and sit above an enlarged central lower air dam.
This is the hatch on which rest Toyota’s plans to be the world’s most successful car maker. The Corolla, launched today in Japan under its Auris nameplate, is promoted as a “sleek, sporty new look for the latest generation of the world’s best selling car”. It will be seen in Australia at the Australian International Motor Show in Sydney. Toyota says though the Corolla models have historically come out of Japan, this is the first to originate in Europe.
It says that Toyota’s focus on European buying preferences – which are broadly similar to Australian tastes has “delivered edgier styling and a lower centre of gravity to further improve its dynamic performance”. “The Euro inspired exterior design combines smooth flowing surfaces with sweeping character lines to provide the sense of agility expected in the small hatch segment,” Toyota says. “The new Corolla also brings fresh interior treatments with clever packaging that liberates more space for occupants and their luggage.”

2013 Toyota Corolla Interior :
The 2013 Corolla’s cabin is a bit dull and the materials quality is uninspiring at best. By comparison, the cabins of the Ford Focus and Hyundai Elantra feel as if they belong to a more sophisticated market segment. On the upside, the Corolla’s controls are quite simple to use. As with most Toyotas, the Corolla’s seats are soft and comfy, and will likely bring to mind words like “plush” and “La Z Boy.” The seats lack support, however, so some may find long distance comfort troublesome. The front seats offer decent space even for taller drivers (a revelation for a small Toyota), while the backseat also boasts decent room and a cushy bottom.
The latter features contribute to improved aerodynamics and cooling, says Toyota, while the company claims the new Corolla, which is 30mm longer than before, will also be more exciting to drive than its predecessor. The new Corolla’s body is 10 per cent stiffer than that of the outgoing model’s, and the hatchback’s centre of gravity has been lowered.
Toyota says the more agile new generation Corolla features a 40mm-lower driving position complemented by a repositioned steering wheel angle to give the driver a greater feeling of sportiness. The front seats have also been designed to better hold the driver in place during cornering, and the steering has been tuned for better response.
2013 Toyota Corolla Exterior :
Australia gets only the most powerful engine on offer a revised version of the existing 1.8 litre unit. Toyota promises more power but hasn’t been specific about local specifications. The current engine delivers 100kW. Toyota Australia’s executive director sales and marketing Matthew Callachor says buyers would continue to appreciate Toyota strengths of quality, durability, reliability, safety and fuel efficiency.
“The strong European influence on the new Corolla embraces the spirit of ‘waku doki’ a car that is fun to own and drive due to its sharp styling as well as its responsive acceleration, accurate steering, engaging drive and excellent ride comfort,” Mr Callachor says. Australia was the first destination for Corolla exports (1967) and quickly established itself as Toyota’s most popular model in this country.
The LE adds 16 inch steel wheels, heated mirrors, variable intermittent wipers, cruise control, Bluetooth, steering wheel audio controls and a six-speaker sound system with a 6-inch touchscreen display, an auxiliary audio jack, iPod/USB connectivity and Bluetooth audio streaming. The S adds foglights, a sport-look body kit, a rear spoiler, upgraded cloth upholstery and metallic interior trim.
Optional on the LE and S is a Premium package that adds a sunroof and upgraded wheels. The Premium interior package for the Corolla LE adds automatic headlights, an eight-way power driver seat, automatic climate control and a leather wrapped steering wheel. Also available is a touchscreen navigation system with voice control, satellite radio and smartphone app integration through Toyota’s Entune system.
2013 Toyota Corolla Engine :
The Corolla comes in three trims : Base, S, and LE. The powertrain is a 132 horsepower, 1.8 liter dual VVT-I engine, matched with a five speed manual or four speed automatic transmission. All models come standard with front, side impact and side curtain airbags, ABS with brake assist, and whiplash protecting front seat active head restraints. Air conditioning and Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) with Traction Control are standard on all models. Available features include cruise control, 16 inch wheels, fog lamps, and a tilt and slide power moonroof.
In Edmunds performance testing, an automatic equipped Corolla accelerated from zero to 60 mph in 10.1 seconds one of the slowest times in the small car class. EPA estimated fuel economy is 26 mpg city/34 mpg highway and 29 mpg combined with the automatic and 27/34/30 with the manual respectable numbers, but they pale next to newer competitors that achieve 40 mpg on the highway.
