2005 Toyota Corolla CE 4dr Sedan Overview

Toyota Corolla is among the best of the compact sedans: reliable and economical yet refined and comfortable.The 2005 Corolla line sees the addition of a sporty new XRS model, while the entire line gets some enhancements.All 2005 Corollas feature a restyled front fascia and redesigned tail lamps.

A Corolla LE equipped with the optional leather interior almost feels like a miniature luxury car, a baby Lexus.For 2005, the Corolla LE gets a Lexus-like Optitron center cluster meters along with fabric-covered sunvisors and center console lid.A new JBL audio system with eight speakers is available on the LE grade.

One of our few complaints about the Corolla line was that the S model offered more show than go.The new XRS model addresses this with a sports suspension and a 170-horsepower 1.8-liter engine.Toyota says the Corolla XRS offers exceptional throttle response throughout its broad power band and can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in less than 8 seconds.

New safety options for all 2005 Corolla sedan models include side curtain airbags with seat-mounted side airbags and a vehicle stability control system (VSC), the latter designed to eliminate skidding.This is in addition to optional anti-lock brakes with electronic brake-force distribution, which improve steering control in an emergency stopping situation and enhance braking stability and effectiveness.

Cloth or leather, the seats are comfortable and supportive.Big heating and air conditioning controls, simple, straightforward radio controls, well-designed cup holders, and plenty of cubbies for storing stuff make for a convenient interior.Getting in and out of this four-door sedan is easy and the back seat is surprisingly roomy and comfortable.

The standard four-cylinder engine revs smoothly and delivers good acceleration performance.Corolla earns an EPA-estimated 32/40 mpg City/Highway when equipped with a manual transmission.Both the manual and the automatic transmissions offer smooth shifting, and the manual is very easy to operate.All models have a smooth, comfortable ride and responsive handling.The XRS is designed to kick it up a notch.
