The Toyota Corolla hatchback XSE with front-wheel drive, disc brakes, antilock brakes, and traction control. Flat black with a gloss black edge accent is the colour. Steel wheels with a vinyl wheel cover and 16-inch Yokohama tyres will be used on the Toyota Corolla Hatchback XSE version. All-season tyre that performs admirably.
The headlights are a full LED projector style headlight with Toyota J curve design headlights. Behind the Toyota symbol is the sensor for the Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, which comes standard on the Corolla as part of the Safety Sense P package.
As we get closer to the back, we notice that the taillights, including the third brake light, are all LED. Rear window defrost, top-mounted shark fin antenna for Sirius Satellite Radio, and chrome Corolla and Toyota badging A backup camera is also mounted just over the licence plate on the back of the vehicle.
Standard equipment includes a 2.0-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine with 168 horsepower and a combined fuel economy of 33 miles per gallon, as well as a CVT 6 speed transmission. After that, a fantastic matte black coating protects your bumper from scratches, and we finish it off with a single exhaust tip going out the back.
There's a pretty nice aggressive look up front. Toyota certainly wanted to communicate a sporty vibe, and we think they did so successfully. Outside door handles and mirrors on the Corolla XSE are tinted to match the external door handles and mirrors, and the mirrors are foldable and breakaway. These are power exterior mirrors with a matte black trim that extends up and over your doors and B pillar.
