The Toyota Corolla has long been a favorite among car owners because of all the sedan has to offer for such a modest price point. Year after year, the Corolla serves as a great option for a variety of drivers, from new drivers to commuters, the Corolla seems to be one of the best options out there, and for the 2021 mode, Consumer Reports seems to agree that it’s one of the best cars of the year.

A sedan with versatility

Part of what makes the 2021 Toyota Corolla such a good car is that it fits the needs of many drivers. For newer drivers, the more simplistic and affordable maintenance can make learning the ins-and-outs of car ownership much more pleasant, and it has all of the safety features to make them feel secure on the road. For commuters, all of these aspects, as well as plenty of space and responsible fuel economy, also make the Corolla a great option.

Affordability meets an enjoyable driving experience

From its appearances, you might expect the 2021 Toyota Corolla to have a higher price tag than entry-level sedans like the Nissan Sentra, but you can buy one brand new for a starting price of around $20,000 for the base model or splurge for the highest trim level at a still reasonable $28,000. At this price, the Corolla doesn’t sacrifice a comfortable driving experience either, being decently insulated against road noise and handling imperfections in the road with quite a bit of ease and composure.

Why everyone loves the Toyota Corolla

Among being comfortable, responsible, and affordable, the Corolla really just seems to have it all going on. While it may not be as exciting to look at as some new sports cars, the 2021 model year has some sportier, more aggressive features that make it into a pretty snazzy four-door. Switching between trim levels gives you plenty of play to help you get what you’re looking for out of a car, giving it an overall well-rounded reputation for offering just about everything the average driver could need from a sedan of its size.
