Performance Features

Featuring a modest 1.8-liter, four-cylinder engine partnered with a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) as the main power plant, the 2022 Corolla prefers economy over excitement. With 139 horsepower and 126 lb-ft of torque, it's great for urban and suburban streets, and adequate for highway driving. You won't be visiting the pumps often - providing 30 MPG city and 38 MPG highway, the Corolla gets great fuel economy!

If you're looking for a touch of excitement, the sporty SE and XSE trims feature a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that turns out 169 horsepower and 151 lb-ft of torque. This gives the Corolla a little more oomph to merge and overtake on the highways, while retaining decent in-town fuel economy. It can be equipped with a six-speed manual transmission for the driving enthusiast, and offers mode selection for Normal and Sport modes. Surprisingly enough, this engine provides better fuel economy than the base engine, getting 32 MPG around town and 41 MPG on the open road. It's a win-win engine!

Style and Technology

Smart, small, and simple should be the tagline for the 2022 Toyota Corolla. The sheet metal is clean and modern without feeling like it is trying to grab onto a fad. At 182.3 inches of overall length, it'll fit into pretty much any spot, from garages to tight on-street parallel parking spots. Steel wheels are standard on lower trims, while alloy wheels are standard on upper levels. SE and XSE models get sportier touches.

There's more clean design inside, with a simplified and ergonomic interior. Fabric-trimmed seating is standard, with optional SofTex trim on upper trim levels. The front seats are spacious, and while the rear seats are fine for adults on short trips, the 37.1 inches of head room and 34.8 inches of legroom can get a bit tight on longer voyages. Manual air conditioning is standard, with available automatic climate control.

A 7-inch touch screen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration and SiriusXM capabilities is standard on the 2022 Toyota Corolla, along with a pair of USB ports and six speakers. For a little more flexibility, upgrade to an 8-inch touch screen that adds a third USB port. Navigation can also be added. Folks looking for the best sound will want to opt for the available JBL premium audio system.


Toyota has always been a leader in the safety field, and the Toyota Safety Sense 2.0 system standard across the 2022 Toyota Corolla line-up is a premiere suite of safety features. This system includes a load of standard systems such as Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist, Lane Tracing Assist, Automatic High Beams, Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, and Road Sign Assist. This last system uses the vehicle's forward-facing camera to recognize road signs and relay the information to the driver via the dash display. Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert is standard on select higher trim levels. A backup camera is also standard across the Corolla line-up.

Trim Levels

With five different trim levels, along with the Nightshade and Apex package options, there are plenty of choices to make on the 2022 Toyota Corolla.

The base L comes with a super-low sticker price, one of the most affordable compact cars on the market. All the base features mentioned previously are included, with the infotainment system featuring Bluetooth audio and phone controls. A Wi-Fi hotspot is also part of the system. 15-inch steel wheels feature plastic covers outside. No option packages are offered at this trim level.

Stepping up to the LE trim keeps the affordable price, while adding in a handful of desirable convenience features. The upgraded 8-inch infotainment system is featured, as is keyless entry. The wheels are still steel, but are upgraded to larger 16-inch editions. Automatic climate control is part of this package.

Stepping up to the SE trim brings sportiness to the Corolla. While it doesn't improve much on the LE trim aside from the bigger engine, it does open up to different add-on packages. A leather -wrapped steering wheel and 18-inch alloy wheels are standard. The JBL sound system is optional at this trim level, while the Nightshade Edition and Apex edition are available. The Nightshade features blacked-out exterior accents, and is solely an appearance package. The Apex package offers performance upgrades on top of appearance changes. A sport exhaust and a retuned suspension provide snappier handling. A restyled front end, a rear spoiler, and bronze exterior accent set this model apart from the pack!

If you want to make a big step up, the XLE trim is an excellent option. This trim features the optional features on the LE as standard, while adding more comforts and conveniences. Upgraded SofTex®-trimmed seats jazz up the interior, while the front seats are now heated and the driver's seat is power-adjustable. Push-button start is a convenient upgrade, while the moonroof certainly opens up the cabin.

Much like the SE trim, the XSE trim is essentially a sportier version of the XLE. If you want the 2.0-liter engine with the conveniences of the XLE, this is the trim for you! As with the SE trim, the Apex package is again offered.
