Buying a car is always a big deal. But buying your first car is a monumental step. Everyone is a little picky when it comes to buying their first car, and for good reason. It needs to be affordable, reliable, and stylish. Most new buyers can’t afford a sports car or an SUV. For that reason, most people buying their first car opt for a sedan. Sedans are popular because they’re affordable, have good gas mileage, and they’re big enough to carry friends and fun. The new 2021 Toyota Corolla is a perfect car for first-time buyers. It’s affordable, reliable, and stylish in all the right ways.
The 2021 Toyota Corolla is one of the most affordable cars on the Toyota lineup, which means you get the most bang for your buck. The base package comes with Toyota Safety Sense, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, Sirius XM, and a backup camera. Depending on your wants and your budget, you can choose the Corolla trim that suits your needs best. Each trim comes with its own set of features and price tag. There’s a new 2021 Corolla option for every budget and personal style. There’s a reason the Corolla is one of the most popular sedans on the road. Along with affordability, Corollas are one of the most reliable cars you can purchase.
Get on the road, and you’ll see at least one Toyota Corolla. Many of the Corollas you see are over ten years old. That speaks to their reliability. People keep coming back to the Toyota Corolla for its high safety ratings and for its engine that keeps running.
The 2020 Toyota Corolla was rated 5 stars for safety. There’s no reason to think 2021 won’t be even better. Every 2021 trim features Toyota Safety Sense, which keeps you and the cars around you safe. Toyota Safety Sense comes with lane detection, which alerts you if you depart from the lane you’re driving on. It also tracks the car in front of you and brakes for you if you get too close to a vehicle. With that, it features adaptive cruise control. So, you don’t have to slow down and speed up on the highway anymore. Adaptive cruise control keeps up with the car in front of you and a backup camera comes standard with every new Toyota vehicle.
The new 2021 Toyota Corolla comes with a 139-horsepower 1.8 liter 4-cylinder engine. The sportier XE and XSE models come with a 169-hp 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine.
