2022 Toyota Corolla for Sale in Warwick, RI
The Toyota Corolla is back in action for model year 2022, with all of its attractive attributes in place. This compact four-door has always been praised for its affordability and longstanding reputation for reliability, but never has it been so easy on the eyes. The nameplate has been in use since 1966, and it’s expanding to yet another model this year. The Corolla Cross compact utility vehicle will be joining the Corolla Sedan, Corolla Hatchback, and Corolla Hybrid as a 2022 model (we’ll cover all of the above on separate pages). Below, we’ll go into the pertinent details of the latest version of the tried-and-true compact sedan.
Trim Levels and Mechanical Details
The ’22 Corolla is made in eight trim levels: L, LE, XLE, SE, SE Nightshade, SE Apex Edition, XSE, and XSE Apex Edition. The L, LE, and XLE have a 139 hp 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine, while the SE, SE Nightshade, and XSE get a 169 hp 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. Most of the Corolla grades come exclusively with a continuously variable transmission (CVT). While the CVT is standard in the SE and SE Apex Edition, these trims are also eligible for a more engaging six-speed manual gearbox. Front-wheel drive is standard across the range. Fuel economy for the L and LE is officially estimated by the EPA at 30 mpg in town and 38 mpg on the highway. The XLE returns 29 city/37 highway, and the SE with the manual tranny gets 29 city/36 highway. The SE and SE Nightshade Edition with the CVT will give you 31 city/40 highway, and the XSE is rated for 31 city/38 highway.
Standard and Available Features
The ’22 Corolla base trim, the L, is stocked with LED headlights, 15-inch wheels, a rearview camera, a USB port, and cloth seats. The LE adds heated side mirrors, automatic climate control, and a rear-seat USB port. The XLE is upgraded with 16-inch wheels, keyless entry and ignition, a moonroof, heated front seats, a power-adjustable driver’s seat, and synthetic leather-trimmed seats. The SE has the same features as the LE, but with a sportier slant: it adds 18-inch wheels, more aggressive exterior accents, and front bucket seats. The SE Nightshade is similar to the SE, but it’s distinguished by blacked-out exterior accents and exclusive 18-inch wheels. The SE Apex Edition also has the contents of the regular SE, as well as an enhanced suspension, a sport-tuned exhaust, a slightly lower ride height, black and bronze exterior trim, and bronze interior trim stitching. The SE Apex Edition also qualifies for summer performance tires.
The XSE Apex Edition gets all that, plus the features from the SE Apex Edition. A wireless smartphone charger and adaptive headlights are available for the XLE and XSE. The top-end XSE combines the athletic touches of the SE with the deluxe amenities of the XLE. A wireless smartphone charger and adaptive headlights are available for the XLE and XSE.
Safety and Technology
Every ’22 Corolla has Toyota Safety Sense 2.0, an advanced safety-technology suite that bundles a pre-collision system with pedestrian detection, lane departure alert with steering assist, automatic high beams, road sign assist, lane tracing assist, and full-speed range adaptive radar cruise control; adaptive cruise control is included on all trims but the manual-transmission SE and SE Apex. The SE is eligible for adding a blind-spot monitor with rear cross-traffic alert, which is standard in the XLE, XSE, and XSE Apex Edition.
For staying connected and entertained, the L has an infotainment system with a 7-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Bluetooth hands-free phone and audio streaming, and a six-speaker sound system. The LE and above trims have an 8-inch touchscreen. A nine-speaker JBL sound system is available on the XLE, SE, and XSE; integrated navigation is optional on the XLE and XSE.
