2004 Toyota Corolla XRS

2004 Toyota Corolla XRS

Enlarge Photo
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.

Finally, a Corolla that doesn't drive like every other Corolla.

37mpg avg - awesome and reliable vehicle.I have put 150,000 miles on it with no problems and sometimes I get 40mpg on the highway. I see no need to get a hybrid yet. It is a manual transmission.
