I actually have a 1.8 T-Sport, but What Car does not seem to have it on the system.
The acceleration at high end on this car is fantastic, forget some of the negative reviews. It can easily out pace Audi TT's and the Golf GTI, especially if you get a K&N filter fitted!!
One of the glorious things about this car is the fact to all intents and purposes it looks like a ordinary Corolla, until you put your foot down and rocket away from the Mondeo that was tailgating you for the last 2 miles!
The handling is very tight, but is best when the traction control is turned off for the real fun factor.
The car can be very civilised when driven conservatively, and can achieve up to 35mpg.
But the only reason to have this car is for putting a smile on your face, and it does that every day.
I've had this car for three years and the only problem has been with the wheels corroding (changed under warranty).
Although the cabin is now quite dated the reliability, handling and performance make up for this.
Fuel economy ranges from 34 to 40 mpg depending on whether my wife or myself drive it. And servicing costs are low.
Rear legroom is a little restricted but if we need to take more than 2 people out we use our Avensis. I would recommend the Corolla as it is a pleasure to drive and fairly cheap to insure even though it does thrill when driven hard.
I would part with this car only for a Corolla T-sport or Celica.
This is the best built car I have ever owned. It's very nice to drive. Nothing has ever gone wrong in seven years. Only consumables have been replaced.
The price of the model is lower or higher?
