The 2017 Corolla’s interior is good-looking, with a stylish dashboard, a cool sport-contoured steering wheel, and an outstanding asymmetrical shifter surround. However, the Corolla keeps ease of use a top priority, so instead of hiding the most sought after audio and climate functions in the touchscreen menus, the Corolla cleverly uses traditional buttons and dials for audio and climate functions.

Nevertheless, the touchscreen is nice to has large virtual buttons, clear graphics, and fast response time to touch inputs. Also, it is one of the most straightforward infotainment systems to use in the economy car class. 

The available Entune App Suite integrates smartphone-connected services including Bing, Facebook, Yelp and Pandora, as well as real-time traffic data, but Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone app integration aren’t available.

Overall the 2017 Toyota Corolla provides adequate comfort, head as well as legroom, sufficient power, style, fuel efficiency and enough acceleration to get you to and fro. It is an impressive compact car that provides all your driving needs as you go about your errands, getting to the daily grind, or just dropping the kids to school and their activities.
