Eric's Autos: 2021 Toyota Corolla

Eric Peters on

A top-of-the-line XSE Apex trim stickers for $28,310.

What's New

The Apex trim is the big news for 2021. It includes a firmer-riding suspension, lower ride height and the option to buy a set of high-performance short sidewall "summer" tires.

What's Good

Ten years from now, you'll hand this car off to your kid -- who will hand it off to his kid.

There is an available manual transmission and a standard not-turbocharged engine.


It has knobs you turn rather than icons you tap.

What's Not So Good

The manual availability is limited to the SE trim.

The otherwise standard automatic is a CVT automatic.
