a straightforward appearance that looks lifted from Kia's no-nonsense school of cabin design

The body styling on the Corolla is unassuming

Overall, the Corolla lacks the sporty and modern panache of many of its rivals, but this may be ideal for those who don't want to stand out from the crowd.

The Toyota Corolla has received modestly revised front and rear styling for 2011, but mostly the design is carried over. In general, the design feels safe and mainstream, with no significant nod toward the wave of individualism that's washing over the small-car market (that's left to Toyota's Scion brand).

The changes for 2011 include, up close, new bumpers, grille, headlamps, trunk lid, taillamps, and license-plate garnish. The effect isn't so significant, but if anything from some angles the Corolla looks even more like a mini-Camry.

Inside, the Corolla's cabin design isn't overt in any way, and it clearly prioritizes practicality above all else. for 2011, the Corolla gets a new seat fabric and color, along with a change in gauge lettering and slightly different instrument panel colors, along with a new steering wheel in the S model.

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.
