Year after year, the Toyota Corolla proves how important it is. No matter how many years have passed since it launched, the Corolla has always stayed relevant. Innovation in technology, design, and the drive experience are what make this essential compact sedan what it is. The 2021 model year is no different.
With six trim levels to choose from, the 2021 Toyota Corolla is designed to appeal to any driver that would consider it. Some trims emphasize technology, others are designed for outward appeal, and others are made to be the best of the best. Excluding the hybrid version of the Corolla, most drivers will find the right fit for them among these six trims. Each is listed below from with the base model on top, and ending with the most outfitted model. Each includes a couple of highlights to help you determine which one you should shop for.
|L||LED Headlights||Integrated Backup Camera|
|LE||Remote Keyless Entry||Automatic Climate Control|
|SE||Dynamic-Shift CVT with Paddle Shifters||Premium Sports Seats with Fabric Inserts|
|SE Nightshade Edition||Black Sport Side Rocker Panels and Rear Spoiler||Black Toyota Emblems and Rear Badges|
|XLE||SofTex®-Trimmed Heated Front Seats||Audio Plus Package with 8-Inch Touchscreen|
|XSE||18-Inch Machined Alloy Wheels||Power Tilt/Slide Moonroof with Sliding Sunshade|
The range of starting MSRPs between the L and XSE trim is just shy of $6,000. That difference brings a wealth of other features, listed below. The LE trim is the only trim that translates over to the hybrid powertrain. The SE Nightshade Edition is mostly focused on offering a black-themed aesthetic to the SE trim that already exists. The most popular trims will likely be the LE for its balance of low price and enhanced features over the L trim, or the SE since it sits right in the middle of the trim level list.
