2017 Toyota Corolla Performance Features and Specs

2017 Toyota Corolla Performacne

For some time now, the Toyota Corolla has been known for delivering confident, long-lasting performance. The 2017 Toyota Corolla continues to build on that legacy while also displaying a surprising amount of sophistication and capability. Daphne drivers can learn more about the performance specs, features, and fuel economy of the newest Corolla and then take it for a spin at Palmer’s Toyota in Mobile, AL.

Powertrain Performance

No matter which version of the 2017 Toyota Corolla you choose, you’ll get a capable 1.8L four-cylinder engine under the hood. Depending on the trim, though, you’ll have different transmission options, along with unique performance and fuel economy numbers.

  • CVT-Paired Engine Performance – Like most versions of the Corolla, the 1.8L four-cylinder with the Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) gets 132 hp and 128 lb-ft of torque. On most trims, this setup will get you an EPA-estimated 36 mpg highway and 28 mpg city, while opting for 17-inch wheels lowers that figure just slightly to 35 mpg highway.

  • Manual-Paired Engine Performance – The SE trim is available with a six-speed manual transmission, with which the Corolla gets the same horsepower and torque and an EPA-estimated 35 mpg highway and 27 mpg city.

  • LE Eco Performance – The LE Eco trim comes equipped with Valvematic engine technology that, along with other efficiency-enhancing measures, help the Corolla get a bump in fuel economy (up to an EPA-estimated 40 mpg highway and 30 mpg city) as well as strong performance numbers of 140 hp and 126 lb-ft of torque.

A Sporty Cabin Experience

The Corolla isn’t only focused on what’s going on under the hood because the right approach to performance is a well-rounded one. If you opt for the SE, XSE, or 50th Anniversary Special Edition, then you’ll get:

  • Sport Gauge Cluster – Keep track of your Corolla’s performance on a stylish sport gauge cluster with an engaging design featuring an illuminated speedometer and tachometer, as well as a Multi-Information Display screen that lets you keep track of your fuel economy and multimedia.

  • Sport Mode – When you’re feeling spunky, simply press the Sport Mode button and the vehicle’s Engine Control Unit will recalibrate the simulated shift points to deliver an even sportier feel.

On top of these features, the Corolla is also available with steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters, allowing you to shift gears to optimize performance and keep you fully in control of your ride.
