2017 Toyota Corolla iM Indianapolis IN
After 2016, the youthful and vibrant offerings from Scion will be leaving the market, with the exception of a few well-chosen options that Toyota simply can’t stand to see go. Among them is the 2017 Toyota Corolla iM available near Indianapolis IN at Carver Toyota. This model is a sort of mix between the Scion iM hatchback and the one of the best-selling vehicles Toyota offers: The Corolla. It’s expected to be a winning combination as the hatchback design is practical and the design elements fun and flashy.
We think you’ll love the 2017 Toyota Corolla iM not only because of its low starting price, but once you get behind the wheel you’ll enjoy the extra headroom, and there’s no denying the cargo space is convenient when the seats are upright, but even more so when you find yourself unexpectedly taking home lawn furniture or bulky sporting gear. And despite its compact size, you won’t find yourself puttering away, with a 1.8-liter engine to help boost it up to highway speeds while still sipping fuel.
Maybe you simply like the looks of a hatchback, but more than likely you find appeal in the fact that the entire rear opens up to make full use of the cargo area, without needing a giant SUV. Behind the rear seats is a full 20.8 cubic feet of cargo space, compared to just 13 if you choose the Corolla sedan.
The 2017 Toyota Corolla iM has a 1.8-liter DOHC 4-cylinder engine that delivers 137 horsepower and 126 pound-feet of torque. A six-speed manual transmission comes standard for those who like to be in control of gear shifts, but the optional CVT provides optimum efficiency out of this hatchback.
There is just one trim for the Corolla iM, so Toyota has to do it right the first time. Standard features include power-folding heated side mirrors, dual-zone automatic climate control, a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Bluetooth and USB, a rearview camera and full power features.
Is the 2017 Toyota Corolla iM right for you?
Sedans have always been a bit more popular than hatchbacks simply because the slim designs previously hinted at a more exciting driving experience. This isn’t the case now, and you have a wide variety of practical or sporty hatchback options on the market, so why choose the 2017 Toyota Corolla iM? Keep in mind the long history of the Toyota Corolla, which has become something of a staple for those seeking a simple and reliable car.
Mix this, with more cargo space and you have the Corolla iM. This means a sturdy and dependable car with safety features that include eight standard airbags, vehicle stability control and smart-stop technology. Nobody wants to get in an accident, but you want to know that your car is designed to protect you if it does happen.
When it comes to performance, Toyota focuses on finding that right balance of efficiency and fun. The 1.8-liter engine provide ample acceleration, but the Corolla iM still receives an EPA-estimated 27 city and 35 highway mpg rating so you won’t be filling up the tank every time you drive.
If you’ve been on the market for a practical little hatchback, now is the time to get behind the wheel. Learn more about the 2017 Toyota Corolla iM at Carver Toyota, serving the Columbus, Taylorsville and Indianapolis IN areas.
