The 2013 Toyota Corolla carries through with a very familiar economy-car formula, only Toyota has added so much comfort and space over the years that it now feels a lot like what the Camry used to be.
While it's competent in all areas, it simply lacks much design flair, driving excitement, or flair compared to many of its rivals.
Comfort-minded shoppers should also consider the new Chevrolet Cruze, which has a great interior that transcends its price and feels almost like a mid-sizer for comfort.
Honda is giving its Civic lineup a mid-cycle refresh already in 2013, which should amount to a spruced-up interior, a more Accord-like exterior, and an expanded feature set.
Only Nissan has taken a route similar to Toyota with the Corolla, with the latest Sentra very much geared toward space, value, and fuel economy rather than sportiness.
