TOYOTA...no other words required!

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE IT!! Love the look, style performance and above all the quality. I really recommend this car.

Cute, Reliable hatchback

My Corolla iM has cute styling, a surprising number of advanced safety features, and is very practical. It gets excellent fuel economy and the seats are quite comfortable. The few drawbacks include lackluster acceleration and a stiff ride (especially on awful Michigan roads).

I love this car! It is the perfect car for me.

This car drives smoothly, handles well, gets great gas millage. I love this car. I do wish it had a CD player but I am adapting. I will buy another one:)

Very happy

Toyota Corollas are known to be reliable and I wanted a hatchback, so this seemed like a good fit. It was more affordable than some certified used models I considered, and I am very happy with its safety features, gas mileage (for me--28-31, combined) and drivability. It is quiet, smooth, and responsive for my city driving and occasional highway driving. I don't drive like a crazy person, so do not need a top performing car. Braking, turning and steering is easy, responsive and safe. With the back seats down, I can haul a lot of stuff. I am short, but have decent visibility, especially with the back up camera. Bluetooth also works great, and I'm very happy with the sound system. Terrific car!

Great Ride

Bought this car because it was very affordable. Fuel efficiency is amazing, very fast and easy to drive. Has so many features standard on this car. Luxury at an affordable price. You compromise in space but certainly comfortable and easy maintenance.

Not like the old Matrix

Not as much room as Matrix, plenty of pep , not comfortable on long trip. Going to have to trade in. Won't own long enough to see how dependable car will be.

Best bang for the buck under $20k

My wife and I recently started looking for a 5-door (hatchback) with a manual transmission to help us learn the ropes of driving a manual car before eventually moving to Europe (where that's all they drive). As a Toyota driver for over 10yrs, I figured it'd be a safe bet to give the Corolla iM a try for my next vehicle. Safe to say I haven't been disappointed! This car got to deal with the occasional jolts and stalls of my learning how to drive a manual transmission from scratch, all while during the break-in period, and with the rough edges in my technique now smoothed out, it drives like a champ. Pros- + Buttery smooth, responsive transmission + Long-throw clutch and tall shift knob easy to work with for beginners + Impressively well-equipped for price point + Very minimal road noise + Very comfortable ride when cruising + Great exterior styling + Very roomy/comfortable interior + Large trunk Cons - Engine could have more power* - Doesn't inspire confidence around curves _ Stock suspension feels squidgy (car rolls quite a bit) _ Stock Toyo tires don't feel overly grippy _ Steering feels somewhat numb/vague** *Just requires playing with the revs a little more; still faster to 60 than the 2017 Impreza I drove **Could be partially due to stock tires and suspension Overall, I am a huge fan of this car. Offerings from competitors at this price point look very base and do not come nearly as well equipped. Echoing pretty much every video and text review of this car, it's not built for performance. If you head into a test-drive remembering to focus on the car as being a daily driver and not expecting it to have the performance or the "planted"-ness of a VW Golf or Mazda 3, you won't be disappointed. I'll definitely be giving the European-spec version of this car a hard look when I head overseas!

The best in class

The best choice under 20k.If you like a smooth ride from home to work this car for you.Let me explain you why: 1.This car 100% Made from Japan; 2.Great interior and exterior; 3.Sharp handling; 4.The best brakes ever; 5.Line and front collision assistant (not so many more expensive cars have same options); Some people are complain about slow and noisy engine.Belive me that 1.8 Toyota engine one is the best in class.And don't forget:if you looking for sport stile fast car IM isn't for you.This is a good small family car.
