Toyota Corolla L
The base trim of the 2018 Toyota Corolla is the Corolla L. The standard engine is a 1.8L 4-cylinder that gets 132 horsepower. The engine works alongside an efficient Continuously Variable Transmission with intelligence and Shift Mode (CVTi-S).
Together, this engine and smart transmission give the Corolla L an EPA-estimated 36 MPG highway1.
The transmission is only the beginning of smart features on the Corolla L. Toyota Safety Sense™ comes standard and includes driver assistance technologies like:
- Dynamic Radar with Cruise Control

- Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection
Another driver assistance feature you'll get standard is the rearview backup camera. A 6.1-inch touchscreen on your dashboard shows you a live picture of what's directly behind you to help with backing up.
This touchscreen also doubles as your infotainment system. It has voice recognition and Bluetooth® compatibility for hands-free phone calls. There's also Entune Audio®, which includes a six-speaker sound system, an auxiliary audio jack, and USB port to sync your smartphone.

The design of the Corolla LE Eco adds features like a rear spoiler to reflect its more powerful engine.
