Car Review: 2009 Toyota Corolla

Car Review: 2009 Toyota CorollaAs far as purchasing an attractive automobile that offers great gasoline mileage, reasonable price and value, the 2009 Toyota Carolla hits the target. With more amenities than one might expect, Toyota has produced a quality automobile yet again that is sure to be a popular model for years to come. The 2009 Toyota Carolla LE is priced at only $16,750 MSRP, and gets 27 miles per gallon in the city and 35 miles per gallon on the highway, so concerns over gas prices are a thing of the past with this model.

The overall performance of the 2009 Toyota Carolla is easily one the best in this class, due mostly to the combination of impressive features. The 1.8 Liter 4 cylinder engine puts out 132 Horsepower, and in conjunction with a 4 speed automatic transmission makes for smooth acceleration. With 4 wheel anti-lock brake system, electronic brake-force distribution, and front wheel drive, the 2009 Toyota Carolla is a pleasant driving experience. A MacPherson front strut and front and rear stabilizer bars allow the Toyota Carolla to have a turning circle diameter of only 35.6 feet.

The interior of the 2009 Toyota Carolla is nicely appointed, with amenities that are more often present in a much higher priced vehicle. Instrumentation features are a speedometer, tachometer, and an LCD odometer, with remote fuel door and hood releases. The Toyota Carolla has an AM/FM stereo with CD player with MP3 capability and 4 speakers, CFC-free air conditioning, power windows and door locks, and a rear window defogger. A fold down rear bench seat enables more room for cargo.

On the exterior the 2009 Toyota Carolla is quite stylish, especially with the 15 inch steel wheels with wheel covers, The blackout front grille and multi-reflector headlamps make a statement as the Toyota Carolla approaches, and the power outside mirrors let you see where you have been clearly.

The 2009 Toyota Carolla is loaded with safety features, enough to satisfy and customer. Driver and passenger front and side airbags, side impact door beams, and high strength steel body panels hold their own in the area of protection. Daytime running lights, protective child rear door locks and a tire pressure monitoring system provide steady peace of mind.

From an overall perspective, the 2009 Toyota Carolla is a well-equipped, comfortable, bargain in it’s price and size class. I can’t imagine anyone searching for a quality vehicle not being pleased with the 2009 Toyota Carolla.
