Expert Quotes:

At 6 feet tall, I wanted more legroom when behind the wheel.

we're disappointed with the design and materials used throughout the interior
Car and Driver

the Corolla's seats are soft and comfy, with the words "recliner" and "La-Z-Boy" thrown about liberally...They lack support, however, so some may find long-distance comfort troublesome.
Edmunds

usable cabin space and a reasonably sized trunk
CNET


The interior of the 2011 Corolla is well designed, but rather stark and basic. In its LE and S trim levels, the Corolla gets a little more dressed-up, but even then its materials and execution feel subpar compared to rivals in the same price range.

Seating in the Corolla is quite good overall, with plenty of headroom and legroom in front, and even decent space for average-sized adults in the back seat. But front seats are a bit short and spongy; they're not so comfortable for longer trips.

Storage-wise, there's a double glovebox, along with a few cubbies, a console box, and large door pockets, but the trunk is on the small side, even among cars in this class, and has intrusive hinges.

Since the Corolla is quite softly sprung, ride comfort is good on most types of roads, though it can become bouncy on broken freeway surfaces. The one area where the Corolla is a standout, however, is in interior quietness and refinement. There isn't a lot of engine noise, and the powertrain is smooth. The Corolla's cabin is also well-isolated from wind and road noise, and feels up to the standards of a mid-size car in this respect.

Conclusion

The 2011 Toyota Corolla has a spacious interior and a comfortable, refined ride, but its interior materials and details look and feel subpar.

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.
