What We Think

Indoor space, on the other hand, is generous with a lot of rear-seat space and we appreciated that the vehicle comes standard with sophisticated safety and security features.

The Corolla iM hatchback offers a much more comfortable flight thanks to its independent rear suspension. However, we kept in mind in a 2016 First Test that it's likewise sluggish since it still makes use of the very same engine from the Corolla car. Cabin insulation is surprisingly good, with marginal sound going into the cabin. Like the Corolla car, the Corolla iM has a roomy cabin with lots of space for all guests and the hatch makes it much more useful.
