First introduced in 1966, the Toyota Corolla is a legendary car that has been on the road for decades and has been one of the top-selling vehicles in the industry for a long time. As your Toyota dealer near Scottsville, you might expect us to be big fans of the Corolla, but honestly, we're obsessed with it. This incredible car has been available across a dozen generations, with more than 50 million Corolla models sold since its release. Few other vehicles come anywhere close to this incredible legacy. Given the sheer amount of variations and options for the Corolla that have come about over the last fifty years, Toyota has spent that time well. Indeed, these days, you have a remarkable assortment of different Toyota Corolla models to choose from, including various powertrains, designs, body types, and trims. Let's look at just six different 2024 Corolla models available now and see what each has to offer.

The 2024 Corolla Sedan

Kicking things off, we have what many people would consider the standard Corolla: the iconic sleek sedan that appears in your head whenever someone says "Toyota Corolla." This stylish four-door model with a conventional sedan design offers a surprisingly spacious back seat and a trunk that is perfect for loading up with everything you need to take with you. The Corolla sedan is powered by a 2.0L I-4 engine that offers 169 hp and 151 lb-ft of torque while also getting up to an estimated 32 MPG in the city and 41 MPG on the highway in terms of fuel economy.

The Corolla Sedan is fun to drive and perfectly sized as a compact car, boasting a continuously variable transmission (CVT) that provides a smooth, steady ride while getting around Scottsville. Small body size and CVT make slipping through packed streets and tight parking lots easy. Standard features for the Corolla include 16-inch wheels, remote keyless entry, automatic climate control, and an eight-inch Toyota Audio Multimedia display. You also get Toyota Safety Sense 3.0 standard on every Corolla model, including Proactive Driving Assist, Lane Tracing Assist, a Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, and more. The Corolla Sedan is a terrific choice if you want a standard sedan that can fit into any lifestyle while bringing a lot to the road.

The 2024 Corolla Hatchback

If you like what the Corolla Sedan offers but want something closer to an SUV, give the Corolla Hatchback a good look. With its sporty and functional design, the Corolla Hatchback is one of our favorites for singles and couples looking for a great vehicle to facilitate a busy, modern lifestyle. It's incredibly fun to drive with the same 2.0L I-4 engine you'll find in the standard sedan model, with paddle shifters on the steering wheel to keep you in control at all times. Despite its functional design, you can still get the same terrific fuel efficiency with the Hatchback model.

While standard features on the Corolla Hatchback are excellent, looking at available options will excite you for this ride's possibilities. The XSE trim, for example, features 18-inch wheels, integrated LED fog lights, and a gloss-black front upper grille surround for a sporty look that is incredibly fun to drive. Inside the XSE, you'll find dual-zone automatic climate control, SofTex-trimmed seating, and a fully digital gauge cluster. Add wireless smartphone charging, a JBL Premium sound system, and advanced safety features like a Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, and you're looking at a fantastic car.

The 2024 Corolla Hybrid

While fuel efficiency with the standard Corolla and Hatchback models is excellent, you must check out the Corolla Hybrid model if you're looking for the most efficient option. Featuring a remarkable 1.8L engine with 138 hp, and available with either front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive, the Corolla Hybrid can get up to an estimated 53 MPG in the city and 46 MPG on the highway in terms of fuel economy. This is incredible efficiency, and Toyota offers four different trims for you to choose from with the Corolla Hybrid, letting you get advanced features like a Smart Key System or a power tilt/slide moonroof without sacrificing the fantastic fuel efficiency you deserve in a car.

The 2024 GR Corolla

If you like the style and functionality of the Corolla Hatchback, but when you look at it, you think, "This could really use a turbocharged engine," then you're in luck. The GR Corolla uses the hatchback design while packing a 1.6L turbocharged engine under the hood, delivering an incredible 300 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque. This is unbelievable power from an engine this size, which comes paired with a six-speed manual transmission and advanced all-wheel drive that elevates your time on the road every day. The standard model is an incredible piece of machinery, but you can also choose the Premium trim for red-painted front brake calipers with ventilated and slotted rotors or the Circuit Edition for a forged carbon-fiber roof, high-mounted rear spoiler, and so much more. Whether running errands around Scottsville or going a few laps on the track, the GR Corolla delivers a terrific time behind the wheel.

The 2024 Corolla Cross

While the hatchback model comes pretty close to giving you the functionality and styling of an SUV, if you want something that quite simply is an SUV, then you need to check out the Toyota Corolla Cross. This compact SUV is the perfect choice if you need something for a growing family or you simply want plenty of room inside your vehicle for passengers and cargo alike without going overboard. Its slim and sporty design can fit easily into just about any lifestyle, while it features the same 2.0L engine for a great daily driving experience.

With its small and elegant design, the Corolla Cross gets an estimated 31 MPG in the city and 33 MPG on the highway for fuel efficiency while giving you a terrific drive you'll look forward to each day. This is the perfect compact SUV for getting around Scottsville thanks to standard features that include an eight-inch infotainment display with a six-speaker sound system, rear-seat vents to keep all of your passengers comfortable, and much more. With the available XLE trim, you get SofTex-trimmed seats, ambient interior lighting, a seven-inch digital gauge cluster, and more to enjoy, creating a vehicle that you'll love to drive.
