NAPERVILLE, Ill., Sept. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- There should be no doubt in anyone's mind that the Toyota Corolla is the most popular and bestselling car in history. In roughly 40 years of existence, the Corolla has sold more than 40 million units in well more than 150 countries and on almost every continent. The story of the 2014 Toyota Corolla that is currently available in the Toyota of Naperville showroom is not only interesting, but is still being played out. In a relatively short timeframe, the 2014 Corolla went from being unveiled in an aircraft hanger amid spectacle and celebration to being in Toyota showrooms around the country in about 12 weeks. The new 2014 Toyota Corolla available at the Toyota of Naperville showroom has a sportier look and is more than ready to take on long-time rival, the Honda Civic.


It has become increasingly clear over the past few model-years that compact car buyers are looking for a bit more edge in the design of their vehicles. The newly redesigned 2014 Toyota Corolla has a wide grille design, indicative of a more high-performance car. The overall dimensions of the car were also tweaked. By very subtly increasing the size of the new Corolla, Toyota engineers were able to increase the amount of room available to passengers by six percent. From a mechanical standpoint, some trims of the new Corolla will be outfitted with a continuously variable transmission (CVT). Instead of traditional gears inside of the transmission, a CVT uses wheels and pulleys that have lead to an increase in fuel-economy.

History is full of rivals that have pushed one another to become greater. The constant battle of the 2014 Corolla vs. the Honda Civic is one that could be said helped spur the recent advancements in compact car design. Under the hood, the new 2014 Corolla and the Honda Civic are fairly equal. Both cars are powered by a 1.8-liter, four-cylinder engine. The Civic has a slight edge in terms of horsepower, but the 2014 Corolla comes back by having a superior Environmental Protection Agency fuel-economy rating.
