Honesty Counts

For anyone who wants to buy a 2021 Corolla, avoid the 1.8L engine as it really is very slow.  Go for the 2.0L engine in the SE or the XSE, or get the hybrid. If you want efficiency as even the hybrid is way faster than the gas-only 1.8L engine-powered versions of the Corolla.


You might as well spend the little extra cash and get the LE if anything. The L isn’t worth it unless you’re extremely broke and just need something to drive. $450 more dollars gets you a better trim level.
