The 2010 Toyota Corolla is never going to be the style setter for the mid-size sedan segment. It’s dull, but it works for those with expectations of anonymity.

The Toyota Corolla has always featured safe styling, but the current generation is certainly a little more daring than previous ones.

Exterior styling varies depending on what 2010 Toyota Corolla model you pick. Of the five trim levels on the 2010 Toyota Corolla, which Edmunds lists as "base, LE, S, XLE and XRS," the XRS is by far the most noticeable on the road.

All versions of the 2010 Toyota Corolla include what Kelley Blue Book calls "a trio of character lines" running from front to back, as well as a "low front air intake" that helps add "visual width below the Toyota signature mesh grill." Motor Trend finds that the new Toyota Corolla is "a longer, lower, wider" car than the outgoing model, which helps improve the car's appearance.

Reviews read by TheCarConnection.com find the cabin of the 2010 Toyota Corolla to be designed for practicality above all else. Cars.com observes that the "cabin seems affably tidy" and most everything about the interior of the Toyota Corolla "tailored for straightforward usability." However, this usability detracts from overall styling, which ConsumerGuide feels is "a noticeable step backwards from the previous-generation Corolla." According to Edmunds, "the 2010 Toyota Corolla's cabin is pleasant enough, but it doesn't stand out in any particular way." In addition, reviewers decree the sedan's 12.3 cubic feet of cargo space is lacking compared to the highly configurable cabins of the Honda Fit.

Conclusion

The 2010 Toyota Corolla is never going to be the style setter for the mid-size sedan segment. It’s dull, but it works for those with expectations of anonymity.

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.
