For those compact-sedan buyers who desire a bit more fun behind the wheel than the typical economy car usually affords, the Toyota Corolla is newly offered in a sportier XRS edition for 2005. It comes powered by a 170-horsepower, 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine that's mated to a six-speed-manual transmission. The other versions in the Corolla line continue for 2005 with a 130-horsepower 1.8-liter four-cylinder powerplant and the choice of either a standard five-speed manual gearbox or an optional four-speed automatic. Air conditioning, a CD stereo, power mirrors, a rear defogger, and a tilt steering wheel are among the car's standard features, with front-side airbags, anti-lock brakes, leather upholstery, a sunroof and various audio-system upgrades optional.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
