Heyward Allen Toyota Reviews Corolla vs Corolla iM

April 1st, 2017 by

If you wanted a Corolla hatchback, you’ve got your chance now. For the first time in years, you can get one. The Corolla iM isn’t exactly like the sedan, but the quality and essentials are the same. Check out both at Heyward Allen Toyota dealer serving Athens GA.

Hatchback or Sedan

Although they are in the same family, the Corolla sedan and Corolla iM hatchback are on difference wheelbases. The sedan has a longer wheelbase and a 13 cu.ft. trunk. As a hatchback, the iM has a more generous 20.8 cu.ft. cargo hold. Marking the iM, the body wears a hexagonal lower grille and sharp-eyed headlights.

High Content Cabins

You can’t go wrong on either car when it comes to dash technology. The systems on each are slightly different, but you get streaming audio, a touchscreen, and other advantages, regardless of whether you pick the sedan or iM hatchback. While the sedan comes in eight trims, the iM needs only one well-equipped model. These hatchbacks boast programmable thermostats among their amenities. Toyota has insulated these cabins with an acoustic layer windshield, foam-type insulation and floor-installed silence sheets.

Performance and Safety

Sedans have either a 132-horsepower or 140-horsepower engine. The iM hatchback slides in between with 137 horses. All three engines come with a choice of manual or automatic. Fuel economy is good regardless of your style or engine pick. Corolla iM hatchbacks have a standard city autobrake and eight airbags. First in its class, the Corolla sedan has an autobrake, pre-collision warning, and lane departure warning.
