The placement of the auxiliary audio jack could be better, though, as it requires draping a cord clumsily across the shifter.
The optional navigation system looks good and refreshes quickly.
The Corolla gets some significant feature upgrades for 2012 and gains some additional standard equipment like power windows and keyless entry.
Across the lineup, there are three trim levels: base L, mid-range LE, and the somewhat sportier-looking S. For 2012, even the basic L model no longer has manual-winding windows; power windows, locks, and mirrors are now all standard, along with keyless entry. Air conditioning, a trip computer, and a tilt/telescoping steering wheel also remain standard. Also, LE and S models get improved audio systems that include Bluetooth and iPod connectivity; LE models now have steering-wheel audio controls, and the S gets stitched seat accents.
A moonroof, XM satellite radio and a navigation system remain among the options.
The most basic 2012 Toyota Corolla L gets increased standard equipment, with only a very modest price increase.
