The body styling on the Corolla is unassuming
From a styling standpoint, there's very little, if anything, to get excited about in the 2012 Toyota Corolla.
The very minor touch-up the Corolla received last year only helped bring the cues on this sedan a little more in line with the larger Camry. Overall, it's a smooth, decent-looking design, but the 2012 Toyota Corolla lacks the sporty and modern panache of many of its rivals.
Inside, the Corolla bucks many of the cockpit-like layouts that are common in small sedans, instead having a more shelf-like instrument panel that, while not exciting, arguably frees up more interior space.
Even though the 2012 Toyota Corolla has gained some cues from the larger Camry, it's still one of the most bland and ubiquitous small-car picks.
