The Toyota Corolla isn't really known for its charming personality, but Toyota is changing that. The 2016 Toyota Corolla presents you with some cool, unique styling and appealing new features. While some of its competition might be a little more exciting, the Corolla blends up-to-date features with Toyota's unmatched reliability, and that is what truly sets it apart. Here are five reasons to see what Toyota's top-selling compact is all about.

Fabulous Fuel Economy

The base Corolla with the 4-speed automatic transmission has essentially a decade-old powertrain, which certainly gets the job done. However, what you want is the new continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT), which returns up to 42 miles per gallon on the highway in the efficiency-oriented Eco trim. Even the non-Eco Corolla delivers a satisfactory 38 mpg with the CVT. Toyota also built simulated shifts into the CVT's programming, so instead of holding constant, annoying RPM during acceleration, it shifts up and down to keep things interesting.

Cool Cabin

For years, the Corolla's cabin was average at best, but the latest design has a dashboard that actually looks great, from the 3-spoke steering wheel and asymmetrical shifter surround to the 6.1-inch touchscreen that's standard on the LE and up. The materials and controls are user-friendly and certainly class-competitive. Overall, the inside of this Corolla makes an impression, especially compared to prior model years.

Enormous Back Seat

The Corolla's wheelbase is roughly 4 inches longer than its predecessor's, and that translates into unprecedented legroom for rear passengers. All that space makes it comparable to the back seat of a roomy Camry, and when it comes to loading up a full house, the Corolla is arguably the most accommodating small car on the market. You might even question whether the larger Camry is really necessary.

Satisfying Drive

We wouldn't say that the 2016 Corolla is sporty exactly, but you can bet that it's the most fun-to-drive Corolla in a long time. The sporty steering wheel feels good in your hands, and it's pretty responsive, too. You shouldn't judge this model before you get in and drive it, because it's more rewarding than you might think. Driving enthusiasts used to chuckle at the Corolla, but these days the tables have turned.

Excellent Resale Value

The Corolla has unprecedented reliability, and that explains why folks can't get enough of it -- even when it's used. If you take care of your Corolla, it will hold its value for a long time after its rivals have been put out to pasture. Sure, there are flashier small sedans out there, but the smart money is on the Toyota. For many shopping in this segment, that's all that matters, and the other perks are just icing on the cake.

Autotrader Says

With many enhancements, the 2016 Toyota Corolla remains a very strong contender among compact sedans. Get to Toyota, and see if the Corolla's newfound personality is right for you.
