Review of the 2009 Toyota Corolla Automobile

by : John Bourne

The 2009 Toyota Corolla is both innovative and reliable, with several new options that allow for safety and convenience. Impressive new features on the Corolla include a DVD navigation system with speakers to make trips more enjoyable, and also, the available Vehicle Stability Control, to allow for better control in adverse conditions. Combined with the Corolla's traction control, these features make the Corolla ride a safe one.

The 2009 Corolla offers several standard safety features, including anti-lock brakes with brake assist and rear disk brakes. Its novel tilt and telescoping steering wheel make for an adventurous ride.

An integrated rear in-glass antenna adds to the Corolla's novel look, while an acoustic noise-reducing windshield adds convenience to the model.

Interior comfort is provided with the Corolla's standard air conditioning, near-flat rear floor and sliding center console. An enhanced design from previous model years provides the same amount of room, but has enhanced usability and storage. The model includes, for entertainment, the available JBL 6-disc in-dash CD changer with satellite radio capability. Bluetooth capability, an auxiliary audio jack and electronic power steering also are available.

Features such as independently illuminating map lights for the driver and front passenger show that the Corolla has advanced in its technology from previous years.

The Corolla, offering the same reliability, now comes with a new body style and increased interior and luggage room. The Corolla's torque also is up with a 132-horse power, 1.8-liter dual engine keeps the Corolla riding fast, while in style.

Toyota's 2009 all-new Corolla is a vehicle that combines technology, safety and affordability, making it a tough car to pass up when shopping for a new ride in the coming year.
