2009 Toyota Corolla Owner's Manual

Posted by Steven Chang on Saturday, 13 April 2013

2009 Toyota Corolla Owner's Manual is practically the tale of two automobiles: There's the bottom edition, which doesn't do of the same quality a job checking up on the latest Honda Civic throughout performance or styling, as well as the sporty Corolla XRS, which includes better energy and managing but also a price tag that trips over several mid-size cars.

The base 2009 Toyota Corolla and the better-equipped LE and XLE editions have a standard One particular.8-liter four-cylinder engine which puts out 132 horse power and 128 pound-feet associated with torque. That's less than your Honda Social and the Chevrolet Cobalt. With a five-speed guide book or a not-so-advanced four-speed automatic, the Corolla controls good 27/35 mpg fuel economy, versus the Civic's 26/34 mpg, but acceleration is tepid.

The biggest update to this more costly trim comes with the engine. The camp Corolla's 132-horsepower, 1.8-liter four-cylinder will be replaced with a new 158-hp, 2.4-liter four-cylinder, and also the larger motor can be teamed with a softer five-speed automatic transmission rather than the bottom model's somewhat-outdated four-speed. A five-speed handbook is common for both engines. The new serp translates to a much more enjoyable driving experience weighed against the rest of the Corolla collection, but that's just like saying a major Mac is more impressive than a 59-cent hamburger. It needs to be.

What buyers should consider is the place where the XRS stacks up against the levels of competition. I'd charge it much behind the 197-hp Honda Social Si regarding thrills, along with behind the redesigned 167-hp Mazda3 s in terms of all-around performance.
