- CAR TYPESUV
The 2022 Toyota Corolla exists as an affordable and attractive compact car that's loaded with standard active safety features. While alternatives such as the Honda Civic and Mazda 3 are more fun to drive, the Corolla has a comfortable ride quality and sporty models of its own. As with many of its compact competitors, the Toyota is offered as a sedan or a hatchback. Both have distinctive designs, but uncharacteristically the hatch has a smaller back seat and less cargo space than the sedan. Select models can be had with a manual transmission, and the sedan offers an exceptionally fuel-efficient hybrid powertrain. Unfortunately, every model comes with a coarse-sounding engine. Still, the 2022 Corolla continues to be a popular choice, especially among shoppers who prioritize style and safety.
What's New for 2022?
Toyota only makes a few changes to the 2022 Corolla family. The LE Hybrid adds a Premium interior package that includes a leather-trimmed steering wheel, leatherette upholstery, a power-adjustable driver's seat with lumbar support, and heated front seats. The sedan adds two new paint colors (Ruby Flare and Windchill Pearl), and the hatchback is now available with a Finish Line Red paint job.

We'd choose the sporty-ish SE sedan. Along with a sport-tuned suspension that makes it more fun to drive than the regular setup, it's available with a manual transmission. We'd happily check that box, even though it voids the option packages that are otherwise available with the standard continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). Thankfully, the Corolla SE sedan still comes standard with plenty of features to keep us satisfied. The list includes 18-inch wheels, a leather-trimmed steering wheel, front sport seats, and an 8.0-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
