Compact cars have a lot of selling points. They make perfect commuter vehicles, with their tendency toward efficiency, and they’re generally budget-friendly from the start. But there is one compact car that continues to hold a special place in the hearts of car buyers year after year: the Toyota Corolla.
This iconic compact is much more than the sum of its parts. Sure, it’s efficient and budget-friendly, but that’s just the start of the great things the Corolla is offering. It’s also safe, with the Toyota brand’s commitment to exceptional road safety built right in. It’s reliable. It’s loaded with fantastic features. And it’s stylish – something that often gets lost in the list of words you want to describe your perfect compact car.
For 2021, the Corolla raises the bar just a bit higher with the addition of the new Apex Edition. Designed for performance-minded drivers, this trim gives you an upgraded suspension system and summer performance tires as well as sporty design details. The dark and daring Nightshade variation is available on both sedan and hatchback models of the 2021 Corolla. And connectivity gets a boost, with the addition of standard Android Auto equipped on all trims.

Interior Review of the 2021 Corolla
The cabin of the 2021 Corolla is inviting and comfortable, with more space than you would expect to find inside a car classified as a compact. Soft and supportive seating accommodates up to five occupants, with generous headroom and legroom in both rows. The trunk is large enough to fit luggage, sports equipment, or your grocery haul with room to spare.
The Corolla’s design uses high-quality materials and keeps everything streamlined, sleek, and easy to reach. Serving as the technology hub, the user-friendly infotainment system puts control right at your fingertips. Throughout all trim levels, you’ll find a remarkable array of features and amenities designed to keep everyone onboard comfortable, connected, and protected on every drive.
Safety is front and center inside the 2021 Corolla, which is an embodiment of Toyota’s commitment to road safety for all. Standard safety features include automatic emergency braking, lane keeping assist, adaptive cruise control, and much more to boost confidence in any road or weather condition.
Exterior Review of the 2021 Corolla
The 2021 Corolla comes just one model year after the car’s complete redesign, and as such, there was little room for improvement. This latest model still offers a striking exterior design with sharp, aggressive angles and a sporty road presence that gets it noticed. Exterior color options include:
Black Sand Pearl
Blue Crush Metallic
Classic Silver Metallic
Power and Performance in the 2021 Corolla
The base engine of the 2021 Corolla is a 1.8L 4-cylinder that makes 139 horsepower. The SE and XSE trims get a 2.0L 4-cylinder with 169 horsepower.
