Expert Quotes:

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

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.

The optional navigation system looks good and refreshes quickly.

In its last year before a major redesign, the Corolla isn't completely unchanged from 2012. In fact, for 2013 it gets some important new tech features, with a new 6.1-inch touch-screen audio system with Bluetooth hands-free calling, Bluetooth audio streaming, and USB connectivity included in all but the base Corolla L.

Across the lineup, there are three trim levels: base L, mid-range LE, and the somewhat sportier-looking S. The L model is no longer so basic, and it includes power windows, locks, and mirrors, along with keyless entry, air conditioning, a trip computer, and a tilt/telescoping steering wheel. Also, LE and S models get improved audio systems, cruise control, steering-wheel audio controls, variable intermittent wipers, and heated mirrors. And S doesn't offer performance that's much sportier, it gets stitched seat accents on sport seats, fog lamps, alloy wheels, a spoiler, additional body cladding, and a sport gauge cluster.

A moonroof and XM satellite radio are among the few factory options, while there are many additional convenience- or appearance-related dealer-installed options, ranging from larger alloy wheels to cargo organizers. And integrated Bluetooth and an upgraded audio system are available in the base Corolla L for a modest (and worthwhile) $280.

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.
