What We Think

In a 2017 First Drive review, we stated that throughout panic quits, the brakes do not inspire much self-confidence and that its velocity is slow. Interior area, on the other hand, is generous with plenty of rear-seat space and also we valued that the automobile comes standard with sophisticated safety and security attributes.

The Corolla iM hatchback offers an extra comfy flight thanks to its independent back suspension. Nonetheless, we kept in mind in a 2016 First Test that it's additionally slow due to the fact that it still uses the exact same engine from the Corolla car. Cabin insulation is remarkably excellent, with marginal noise entering the cabin. Like the Corolla sedan, the Corolla iM has a roomy cabin with plenty of area for all guests as well as the hatch makes it much more useful.
