2016 Toyota Corolla: A Stylish Car That Delivers on all Fronts

Sunday, July 24th, 2016

A lot of car buyers like having all the newest bells and whistles attached to the car models – high-tech options, high-performance engines and more. But when it gets down to it, what drivers are looking for most in an automobile is dependability and reliability. The Toyota Corolla is a model that has been serving the US for 48 years and continues to satisfy drivers year round. If dependability is something that fits your needs, then look no more, because there’s only one mid-sized sedan that meets that criterion — the 2016 Toyota Corolla Four-Door Sedan CVT S. The Corolla is definitely a car that will please almost everyone who is looking to get the most for their money, and also come home with a stylish car that delivers on all fronts.

First off, people tend to think that a mid-sized sedan will fail to provide ample room for passengers, especially in the back seat. But you will be surprised when sitting in the Toyota Corolla. There is plenty of legroom in the backseat of the car. Unlike some smaller sedans, passengers riding in the back won’t be uncomfortable for those long car trips with friends and family.

The 2016 Toyota Corolla is powered by a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine that generates 132 horsepower and 128 pound-feet of torque. Using a six-speed transmission, the power of the engine is sent to the wheels. The peppy engine can push the Corolla from zero to 60 in about 9 seconds.

The model comes with some great additional features, including a back-up camera, an input for your iPod/MP3 player, steering wheel controls, and Bluetooth capabilities.

2016 Toyota Yaris is a Compact Model Fit for Tight Spaces

Sunday, July 17th, 2016

If you live in a crowded urban area, then you’re well aware that parking spots can be difficult to come by – or perhaps they’re there, but all the spaces require a mastery of parallel parking skills. It can be especially difficult if your chosen car is a large sedan, minivan or sports utility vehicle. Thankfully, though, there are compact options that are well suited for the task of fitting into even the tightest of parking spots, or easily navigating the narrowest of roadways. One such model is the 2016 Toyota Yaris Three-Door Liftback Auto L, which can be found here at Toyota of Muncie.

The highly affordable subcompact Yaris has evolved over the years to provide more than just a means of getting from point A to point B in an affordable vehicle. The Yaris is a peppy little ride that has a well-designed suspension system that helps the car take the tightest of turns with ease, making it an easy vehicle to maneuver. The 2016 Toyota Yaris Three-Door Liftback Auto L features a 1.5-liter inline four-cylinder engine that generates 106 horsepower and 103 pound-feet of torque that can take the vehicle from zero to 60 in under 10 seconds.

But don’t think the subcompact skips on the frills. The model comes standard with the Toyota Entune digital interface, which includes a touch-face screen, Bluetooth connectivity, and HD radio.

Even though the Yaris is a subcompact car, it features plenty of space for those riding in the front as well as rear seats. There is also about 15 cubic feet of cargo space in the back.

If this sounds like the kind of model you want to cruise around Muncie or other parts of the Midwest, come down to our Toyota dealership serving Indianapolis and take a test drive of the 2016 Toyota Yaris Three-Door Liftback Auto L.

Toyota Leads the Way in Hybrid Innovation

Sunday, July 10th, 2016

Innovation. It’s something we all look for in a company to support and it’s something for which Toyota has become well known – it’s one reason the company is a leader in the development of hybrid vehicles, like the 2016 Toyota Camry Hybrid Sedan and the 2016 Toyota Prius V Five-Door Wagon Two. This year marked the second consecutive year Toyota earned the distinction of having more patents issued to it by the United States Patent and Trademark Office than any other automobile company. In 2015, Toyota received 1,636 patents and over the last eight years has been awarded more patents than any other automotive company. This achievement illustrates the company’s commitment to ever better cars that achieve greater safety, environmental and technological advancements.
