Considering Toyota Corolla sport hatch 2017

Recommended Posts

Positives (from my viewpoint) are tried and proven port injection technology and normal aspiration. This avoids any potential issues down the track with upper engine carbon deposits and expensive cleaning (assuming you follow the oil change requirements). Car is probably the best ever Corolla in terms of smoothness, refinement and ride and performance is pretty decent too - infact a tiny bit better than the high performance original twin cams from the late 1980s.

Bad points are that (if you want an auto), the CVT might not be your cup of tea, as it tends to make the engine run at maximum torque RPM (so somewhat "drony") rather than go through distinct automatic gears (though the Corolla has 7 "virtual" ratios but they are nothing more than pre-programmed relative positions for the respective drive pulleys) - it is still a CVT.

perhaps given the age of your existing Corolla, you might be happier in a 1.5 Yaris if you are on a budget and wanted something a bit closer in size and weight to what you have now. Plus you get a traditional auto (albeit only 4 speed - what you probably have now anyway).
