2017 Corolla’s LE sleek front grille and bumper designs, along with wheel cover and alloy wheel designs, create greater distinction between the models. Automatic LED headlamps are standard. Galactic Aqua Mica and Falcon Grey Metallic colours are available on LE and SE models. Cruze features aerodynamic sculpting for a sportier appearance and the available projector-beam headlamps with available signature LED daytime running lamps. Both vehicles are functional and comfortable, without losing any style.
When it comes to comfortable interiors, the 2017 Corolla greets you with high density foam-padded seats, cladded in black fabric on LE and LE ECO. The Chevy offer substantial interior room for front passengers, with more usable space for rear-seaters than its predecessor. Chevrolet opens more options, like heated front bucket seats and premium cloth seating surfaces, on higher trims. Both vehicles has 60/40 split-folding rear seats, ready to give you plenty of space for all your stuff.
The 2017 Chevrolet Cruze and the 2017 Toyota Corolla are both equipped with more features than you used to find in small economy sedans. No matter which you choose, you’ll get Bluetooth, air conditioning, full power accessories, and a touchscreen interface. However, the 2017 Corolla also offers steering-wheel audio controls, and standard cruise control. These are things the base Cruze is without.
Corolla is equipped with a standard 132-hp, 1.8L, fuel efficient 4-cylinder engine that achieves ultra-low emissions status (ULEV II). Standart for Corollas CVT responds well to most types of predictable driving. The new Cruze isn’t a sport sedan, and doesn’t come across as particularly eager or tossable. It offers a 153-horsepower, 1.4-liter turbocharged inline-4 engine.
The standard Toyota Safety Sense Package which is found on all available 2017 Corolla models includes Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist, Automatic High Beams, and Dynamic Radar Cruise Control. The Corolla earns a 5-star overall safety score from the NHTSA, and the top rating of “Good” on all IIHS tests. The only comparable driver assistance features that the 2017 Chevy Cruze offer are Forward Collision Alert and Lane Departure Warning and Lane Keep Assist which are also only optional on the highest trim of the Cruze. And as a new model, the Cruze hasn’t been fully crash-tested yet.
