Kelley Blue Book

“The 2017 Toyota Corolla is destined to remain a best-seller, thanks to new styling, a simplified model lineup, improved interior, and a host of standard safety equipment that’s unheard of in this class, or even in cars costing much more.”

Toyota models have long been noted for their safety, but this year they reinvigorate their safety efforts with the introduction of Toyota Safety Sense™ P (TSS-P) as standard fare on a number of models, including the Corolla. The impressive safety features that come with this package include a Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist, and more, making the Corolla one of safest models on the market today.
