2011 Toyota Corolla Styling

6.0
Styling
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.

The 2011 Toyota Corolla gets a fresher face borrowed in part from the Camry—though it's not much more exciting.

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.
