As a representative of the new generation of Toyota cars, Corolla has an updated architecture, design and equipment, and therefore the experience of driving this car allows you to feel it perfectly. The two-wheel-drive car is paired with a CVT (continuously variable transmission). That might be a significant drawback for some drivers.
