We'll be publishing our First Drive of the 2014 Toyota Corolla later on this week, but for right now, we can reveal that the eleventh-generation compact will be priced from $15,995 in CE trim when it hits Canadian dealerships this fall (*not including destination charge).
Four trim levels will be offered in Canada, including the aforementioned $15,995 CE, alongside the sportier Corolla S ($19,215), loaded Corolla LE ($19,500) and new LE Eco ($20,255) models. The popular and fully featured LE trim also adds a backup camera, cruise control, keyless entry, 6.1-inch touchscreen audio system and a brand-new continuously variable transmission replacing the four-speed auto. There's even an Eco version of the LE trim that uses a different engine tune to provide fuel economy of up to 5.6L/100km (42 mpg) on the highway.
Meanwhile, the 2014 Toyota Corolla S, comes with a modified front fascia design, rear lip spoiler, leather-wrapped steering wheel, sport seats and more starting at $19,215. There are paddle shifters mated to the CVT with seven "gears," and optional 17-inch wheels are available. Toyota will offer the Corolla S trim with a six-speed manual and Softex synthetic leather seats as an option too. All in, a fully loaded 2014 Corolla should come in around $25,000. Not bad, at all.
Stay tuned for our full impressions of the new Corolla as we take it for a test drive. Click here for video of the 2014 Toyota Corolla reveal.
