2017 Toyota Corolla Columbus IN
Maybe it’s too early to state that 2017 will be the year of the Corolla, but knowing that this model has managed to become the world’s all-time best-selling car, it seems this is just a statement of fact every year. 2017 is particularly important for this model, as the Corolla celebrates its 50th anniversary. To commemorate the event, the 2017 Toyota Corolla in Columbus IN will be available to order in a unique 50th Anniversary Special Edition trim with exclusive color options and features solely found in the model.
The Corolla last received a ground-up redesign back in 2012, so sadly it isn’t due for a new generation in time for this anniversary. It is getting a mid-cycle refresh to spruce up its appearance and also receives new technology for the model year. This is particularly important when it comes to safety features, as active ones are often missing in compact cars to keep them ultra affordable. Toyota is changing this dynamic to make models intuitive to drive, and this means more standard driver assistance features.
Standard safety equipment includes traction and stability control, brake assist, eight airbags, the LATCH system and much more when it comes to passive safety and crash-optimization. The Toyota Safety Sense-P is available on all trims for pre-collision pedestrian detection, radar cruise control and more.
Things only get better each year, which means more available and standard features. The Corolla comes in L, LE, LE Eco, SE, XSE and XLE grades, with the base L trim including a rearview camera, bi-LED headlamps, Entune Audio with the 6.1-inch touchscreen display and power windows and locks.
The front-wheel-drive 2017 Toyota Corolla is expected to have the same engine options, with the model powered by a 132-horsepower 1.8-liter engine that can be paired with a manual, automatic or CVT depending on trim. Independent MacPherson struts offer stability and a comfortable driving experience.
Why drive the 2017 Toyota Corolla?
The Toyota Corolla has managed to be a top seller all over for a number of practical reasons. Each new generation gains a fresh and attractive design, fuel economy is excellent for its class and the model remains affordable whether you stick with the base trim or upgrade to include every available technology. Top this all off with the solid reputation Toyota offers for reliability, and the Corolla easily becomes a trusted option for families.
2017 is a special year for the Toyota Corolla, which means the automaker is determined to keep it at the top of the compact car segment. Instead of offering driver assistance features only on premium models, the Toyota Safety Sense Package will now be available starting at the base trim. This package includes the pre-collision system with pedestrian detection, dynamic radar cruise control, lane departure alert with steering assist function and automatic high beams.
The 50th Anniversary Special Edition will be sold in limited quantities, with just 8,000 available to the U.S. market. Features for this model will include special 17-inch alloy wheels with dark gray inserts, a 7-inch touchscreen for the Entune Audio Plus with Connected Navigation System, Smart Key with push-button start, unique floor mats and badging and a black interior with Black Cherry contrast stitching and accents. Three exclusive paint colors include Black Cherry, Classic Silver and Blizzard Pearl.
