3 Reasons to Drive a 2014 Toyota Corolla

Choosing a new car does not have to be difficult, especially if you consider the 2014 Toyota Corolla. This is the updated model of the five-passenger, four-door compact sedan that has been a family favorite for years.

The 2014 Corolla is considered more comfortable than its predecessors and even has extra rear legroom, so now the front legroom of 42.3 inches is only slightly more than the rear space of 41.4 inches, 5 inches larger than the average for other 2014 compact sedans. If increased comfort isn’t enough reason to drive a new Toyota Corolla, here are some other considerations.

Mileage

Toyota is known for producing reliable cars that are fairly environmentally friendly, but the 2014 Toyota Corolla takes this a step further. The base model of the car gets a city mileage of about 29 miles per gallon, while it can get 37 miles per gallon on the highway*. The other trim levels do either just as well or even better, with the Corolla LE Eco Plus and Premium getting an amazing 30 miles per gallon in the city and 40 on the highway and the Corolla LE Eco doing slightly better at 30 and 42 EPA estimated miles per gallon**, respectively. If you want to save even more money on gas while driving, opt for the LE Eco Plus or Premium so you can take advantage of Eco Mode. When you press this button, the system will adjust functions, such as climate control, to increase your mileage even more.

Value

No matter what trim level of the 2014 Toyota Corolla you choose to go with, you will be getting an excellent value. The car’s value isn’t just based on the word of Toyota; IntelliChoice ranked the 2014 Corolla as an Excellent Value. In addition to the car’s great starting value, it will also retain it much better than other models. In fact, IntelliChoice named the 2014 Corolla as the car with the highest retained value. This means that you won’t have to worry about depreciation as much as you would with another vehicle.

New Unique Features

A final reason to drive the 2014 Toyota Corolla is its ability to adapt to changing technology with new and unique features. The new Corolla comes with a 6.1-inch touchscreen in all models, and this is the main infotainment system of the car. What are truly amazing and unique compared with other makes and models of compact sedans are some of the standard interior features. You won’t find features like a rearview camera, voice recognition, and a USB connection specifically for iPods and iPhones standard in the base model of just any sedan.

Now that you are armed with information, consider test driving a 2014 Corolla to get a feel for the vehicle and make sure it is right for you. The staff at Miller Toyota in Chantilly, Virginia, can help you with the test drive and purchase of a new Corolla.
