The Toyota Corolla has long been lauded as a practical and reliable option for everyday use. But what if you could add some excitement to your commute? Invest in a pre-owned 2016 S-Plus model and you’ll get exactly that.
This peppy trim level beefs up your driving experience with fast throttle response, paddle shifters, and firm steering. Sport-bolstered seats also add to the sense that you’re nearing the quarter-mile mark on a race track rather than running errands.
The S-Plus is powered by a 1.8-liter four-cylinder, which packs a punch with its lively 132 hp and 128 lb-ft of torque. The EPA gave it a fuel-economy of 29 mpg city and 47 mpg highway, which is impressive for any vehicle, let alone one with a sport-tuned suspension.
Speaking of this trim level’s athletic undertones, an Autoblog review lauds its authentically rewarding handling, describing it as taut and controlled. Such responsive road manners should give you added confidence during fast paced highway driving. Once you take the exit ramp onto serpentine rural streets, the Corolla S-Plus will continue to deliver a smooth and comfortable ride.
