Expert Quotes:

Many interior panels have a hollow, plastic feel to them
ConsumerGuide

Materials quality is high, and fit and finish is consistent with Toyota's historically high standards
Edmunds

Much emphasis was put on seat comfort for occupants of almost any height
Kelley Blue Book

Toyota has built its brand around high-quality and supremely reliable cars, and the 2009 Toyota Corolla is, for the most part, no exception.

The five passengers that the Toyota Corolla accommodates will find themselves riding in a car that offers respectable comfort levels and storage space. ConsumerGuide feels that, up front, "the seats are generally comfortable," and the back features "good legroom and foot space." Edmunds refers to the back of the 2009 Toyota Corolla as having "plenty of space for children and just enough room for adults." When it comes to passenger room in the Toyota Corolla, Kelley Blue Book says that "leg room is increased a half-inch in front and nearly an inch in back, though front head room is down a half-inch" versus last year's model.

Finding storage space in the 2009 Toyota Corolla shouldn't be too hard, especially inside the cabin. Edmunds feels that "storage is more than ample up front, particularly with the addition of a double glovebox, though the provisions are a bit stingy in back." The Corolla's trunk is a different story, with ConsumerGuide finding that "trunk volume is less than in most compact sedans," thanks to a "tall bumper lip, small opening, and intrusive lid hinges."

The 2009 Toyota Corolla has been put together well with some surprisingly nice materials, especially on the upper-level versions of the Corolla Toyota. Autoblog feels that "materials and assembly are good" on in the Toyota Corolla’s interior, and Edmunds writes that "fit and finish is consistent with Toyota's historically high standards." Cars.com adds that the dash on the 2009 Toyota Corolla has "consistent, if not outstanding, quality." However, ConsumerGuide feels that this consistency inside the Corolla Toyota is not necessarily a good thing, since “many interior panels have a hollow, plastic feel to them.”

One characteristic that helps improve driving comfort on the Toyota Corolla is the admirable noise suppression. ConsumerGuide reviewers find that the 2009 Toyota Corolla features “fine wind suppression with little road noise, especially in models other than the XRS.” Motor Trend heaps on additional praise, saying the Toyota Corolla “must be the quietest car in its class, with less wind noise than many luxury cars.”

Conclusion

The 2009 Toyota Corolla comes from a very reliable family and, for the price, features very high materials and build quality with decent levels of comfort.

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.
