Expert Quotes:

The ventilation controls, though simple to understand and use, have a cheap feel as well.
Cars.com

the base Corolla features such good stuff as a telescoping steering wheel, air conditioning, and an exterior-temp gauge
Car and Driver

The placement of the auxiliary audio jack could be better, though, as it requires draping a cord clumsily across the shifter.
Edmunds

The optional navigation system looks good and refreshes quickly.
CNET


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.

 

Conclusion

The most basic 2012 Toyota Corolla L gets increased standard equipment, with only a very modest price increase.

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.
