Then you will first want to check out the different trim levels now available at our dealership in San Antonio, Texas. Depending on your choice, your model will come with varied features. To give you an example, we took the first and last tiers from the lineup and compared them. This will give you a better perspective of what to expect.

2018 Corolla

The Toyota Corolla L is the entry-level trim level. Its powertrain consists of a 1.8L 4-Cylinder engine and a Continuously Variable Transmission system. Its output measures to 132 horsepower and it can achieve a fuel efficiency of 28 city, 36 highway, and 32 combined MPG. Its exterior features Bi-LED headlights and LED Daytime Running Lights. Inside, its cabin is trimmed in fabric upholstery and its dashboard is integrated with the basic Entune™ Audio unit. For additional reinforcement, this model has the support of Toyota Safety Sense P™ technologies like Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist.

The Toyota Corolla XSE is the most advanced trim level. Like the former, it wields the same powertrain and delivers similar power and economy. It also has the benefit of the Toyota Safety Sense P™ features. The difference mostly lies in composition. For one, the body is built-in with a power tilt/slide moonroof that provides the luxury of fresh air and warm sunlight. Inside, there are a plethora of deluxe upgrades such as SofTex®-leather trimmed seats with heated functionality for the front row. It even has the next-level Entune™ Audio Plus with Connected Navigation App® that not only provides a great connection to your favorite music platforms but real-time data from informative outlets. For your convenience, there is a Smart Key System that goes along with this model too, making it easy for you to access settings of your vehicle remotely and more.

As you can see, the subsequent trim level builds off the first and includes more amenities. Still, even the basic Toyota Corolla makes an attractive case in favor of itself. That is why we are certain every driver will love theirs! The easiest way to discover your favorite option is to visit our San Antonio dealership for a test drive.
