2014 Toyota Corolla S: Five Things We Like

February 28, 2014
Toyota has, for at least a couple of decades and several generations of modest, evolutionary change, played it safe with the best-selling Corolla. But with the all-new 2014 Corolla, the automaker has gotten smart; realizing that it was losing too many sales to stylish, sportier models like the Ford Focus or Mazda 3, and to sophisticated, value-packed models like the Hyundai Elantra, Kia Forte, and Chevrolet Cruze, among many others.

While the automaker didn't change the Corolla radically, it's a lot more than a conservative evolution—and a world better than its predecessor when it comes to technology, connectivity, design, and refinement.

We had our first drive in the 2014 Corolla this past summer, and found a lot to like about it. And after we've put one through our own daily-driving paces, we appreciate this no-nonsense sedan even more—and we don't have any significant gripes. Provided you're judging a small sedan by its ability to deliver good, reliable transportation, as well as a little bit of fun now and then, it's hard to find much fault with the 2014 Toyota Corolla S.
