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.

Great car but the voice recognition for my cell phone integration is not very reliable for dialing calls. Many times it takes two or three attempts before the call goes through.
