What are the trim levels and features on the 2018 Corolla and 2018 Yaris iA?

The 2018 Toyota Corolla, like most traditional Toyota models, is offered in a variety of trim levels to appeal to the masses from a budget-focused configuration all the way up to a 2018 Corolla packed with amenities like heated seats, a sunroof, push button start, navigation, and more. The 2018 Toyota Corolla trim levels include the L, LE, LE Eco, XLE, SE, and XSE. Base L models come standard with LED headlights, Bluetooth compatibility, a rearview camera, and the Toyota Safety Sense suite of active safety. Toyota Safety Sense features include a pre-collision system with pedestrian detection, lane departure alert with steering assist, automatic high beams, and dynamic radar cruise control.

The 2018 Toyota Yaris iA is configured a little differently with only one trim level available. While that does take some of the customization out of the picture for sedan shoppers, it also keeps the starting price lower than the 2018 Corolla and still includes a lot of base-level amenities drivers can appreciate. The 2018 Toyota Yaris iA comes standard with push button start, sport-contoured seats, automatic transmission with a manual shift mode, 60/40 split-folding rear seats, Bluetooth compatibility, a USB port, a low-speed pre-collision system, a tire pressure monitoring system, and power side mirrors with LED turn signals.

Overall, we feel that the 2018 Toyota Yaris iA is great for car shoppers who need to stick with a tight budget without sacrificing on some of the technology that newer Toyota vehicles offer. If your budget has a little wiggle room though, the 2018 Toyota Corolla offers more power behind the wheel, a more robust safety package, and a lot more customization, so you can get exactly what you want. Find both models available now at the Serra Toyota dealership in Birmingham, Alabama.
