The Toyota Corolla: Where Does it Stand in its Class?

When looking for a mid-sized sedan, you want the best of the best for your family and for yourself. This is the ride for your morning commute and dropping the kids off at school. That's why the 2018 Toyota Corolla is the sedan for everything you need in your life. There are many safety features which, fortunately, come standard in all sedans such as the Honda Civic and the Ford Focus, but some people want a little more in their ride, so let's look at all the ways the 2018 Toyota Corolla has more to offer than your average mid-sized sedan.
