    Just about every buyer in the market for a compact sedan knows the Toyota Corolla is a smart choice. Toyota has produced reliable, safe vehicles for decades and has built a reputation for quality that is unmatched. The 2022 Corolla arrives on the scene with generous standard features for its low price point and technology to keep buyers connected on the road. The standard driver-assist safety features come as a pleasant surprise with a full suite of technology that even includes adaptive cruise control. Anyone seeking a fuel-efficient, comfortable, and safe sedan will find the 2022 Toyota Corolla an excellent choice for long commutes, small families, and daily driving needs.

    The 2022 Corolla seats up to five passengers and comes standard with a four-cylinder engine. Automatic versions of the latest Corolla have a continuously variable transmission, though a manual transmission is available for some trims, including the sporty Corolla Apex. For 2022, the Corolla comes in five trims: L, LE, XLE, SE, and XSE. Three special editions are available as additions to the five trim levels: the SE Nightshade brings sleek black looks, while the SE Apex and XSE Apex add real performance upgrades. A hybrid variant is also available in the LE trim level.

    In comparison to past generations, the 2022 Corolla is decidedly more upscale and feature-laden but is still available at a price point nearly any driver can afford. Buyers will find incredible value in the new Corolla that delivers style, comfort, and dependability from decades of continuous excellence.

  • Exterior

    A silver 2022 Toyota Corolla is shown from the side.

    The exterior styling of the 2022 Corolla defines it as a member of the Toyota family. It shares similarities to the Camry in the front fascia, and the slight dome shape of the roof resembles the Prius. Though the Corolla is low in price, it doesn't look like it. Styling for 2022 takes the Corolla into sporty territory, joining the majority of the Toyota lineup in that appeal. Paint colors have several enticing choices for mixing two-tone appearances with the choice of a black roof, which contrasts to the lower body to continue the sport-inspired look.

    Modern Features

    All trims come standard with LED headlights, LED taillights, and LED daytime running lights. Adaptive headlights that swivel to light the way around corners are available for the higher trims, a boon when driving at night. All but the base trim gain access to heated exterior mirrors and a powered moonroof that comes with a sliding sunshade, features that can give the Corolla a more upscale feel. Sport-oriented trims like the SE and XSE add exterior details like a rear spoiler and exterior accents, and with the Apex special editions, you gain upgraded suspension and a lowered ride height for improved performance.

    Performance and Efficiency

    15-inch alloy wheels are standard for the entry-level trim, and moving up to the second-level LE trim gives buyers 16-inch wheels. Upper trims may come with 18-inch wheels for improved sport-style performance, along with a more powerful engine. Entry-level trims will be powered by a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 139 horsepower, while the more powerful 2.0-liter four-cylinder offers more capability with 169 horsepower. Both engines come standard with Toyota's new CVT that includes a real 1st gear for faster launches, and the 2.0-liter is offered with a traditional 6-speed manual transmission.

    Despite its upgraded performance, fuel efficiency is excellent for the 2022 Corolla. The base engine is rated for 38 MPG on the highway, a solid figure that the optional 2.0-liter engine actually exceeds. On top of its 169 horsepower, the larger engine makes an impressive 40 MPG on the highway with its standard automatic transmission.

  • Interior

    The welcoming interior of the 2022 Corolla invites you into the comfortable seats and modern style of the cabin. Powered windows and locks are standard, and the driver will find that adjusting the car to fit is simple with the tilting and telescoping steering wheel and standard six-way driver seat. Above the entry-level trim, remote keyless entry is standard equipment to make getting into your Corolla quick and convenient, and the mid-level trims gain Smart Key functions with a push-button start. Luxuries like a leather-wrapped steering wheel and ambient lighting are available in upper trims to bring the Corolla interior more refinement.

    A Roomy Cabin

    The cabin offers seating for five and is roomy for a compact car, with 42 inches of legroom in the front seat and 34.8 inches in the rear. Cargo space in the trunk comes to 13.1 cubic feet, which is close to the amount of space many midsize sedans offer. All trims will have a split-folding rear seat to allow for more cargo capacity when it's needed, and in the LE trim and above, the addition of a fold-down armrest with extra cup holders is handy for rear-seat passenger comfort. With the upper trim levels, seat upholstery upgrades to premium cloth, and sport style front seats for sport-oriented trims are available in different patterns to give the Corolla more personality.

    Advanced Technology

    Technology is inclusive for the 2022 Corolla, as it should be for all vehicles sold today. Toyota incorporates a standard seven-inch touchscreen into the upper portion of the center stack, where it is easy to access and see. Standard Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and Amazon Alexa compatibility make connecting with your smartphone and your Alexa home system a snap. An optional eight-inch screen brings an even higher level of technology to the top trims of this modern sedan.

    USB ports in the center stack allow buyers to connect their smartphone to the six-speaker sound system, and the Corolla will automatically pair Bluetooth for hands-free phone use. Toyota offers a one-year trial of its connected services, which includes its safety features for roadside and emergency assistance, plus a three-month trial of both SiriusXM All Access and WiFi connectivity. All this is standard across all trims, though an upgraded JBL sound system and navigation are available for upper trims to take your tech up a notch.

  • Safety

    In a world where driver-assist safety features are now the norm for new cars, it's no surprise that Toyota is taking the lead in safety technology, even for its compact cars. The Toyota Safety Sense 2.0 suite of safety features includes a long list of driver-assist technology to make driving safer on any road, but every 2022 Corolla also comes with the Star Safety System, which works behind the scenes automatically to help maintain better control while you drive. Design is also integral to safety, and Toyota continues to have vehicles like the Corolla chosen as an IIHS Top Safety Pick year after year for more than just their technology. The Corolla is engineered for safety, with features like an energy-absorbing steering column that reduces injury from impacts and front and rear crumple zones that absorb the energy of a collision.

    Active Safety

    Active safety features like the Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection and Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist will offer driving support when the Corolla senses the vehicle needs to stop or requires correction to avoid collisions. Automatic High Beams mean you never need to remember to turn down your high beams at night, and Road Sign Assist means you won't miss the speed limit signs, either. Lane Tracing Assist helps the lane departure system to keep you in your lane, and the Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control is a long title for a cruise control system that can slow down and speed up again automatically to keep pace with traffic.

    Passive Safety

    Passive safety features found in the Star Safety System include features that assist the driver electronically and automatically, particularly in adverse driving situations like poor weather or taking a turn too fast. The Vehicle Dynamics Integrated Management (VDIM) acts as an overarching control system for all the electronic safety systems, ensuring they all work well together rather than independently functioning. Traction Control, Vehicle Stability Control, Electronic Brake-force Distribution, and Smart Stop Technology all work together under the umbrella of VDIM. Building on decades of engineering and design, Toyota offers one of the most comprehensive safety systems in the market today.
