    What reviewers liked least about the Toyota Corolla

    • Its engine keeps the Corolla from dominating the class.

      - The Car Connection
    • It's too bad that, while significantly improved, the new Corolla sedan has an awkward appearance.

      - Carpoint.com

    Best one-liner about the Toyota Corolla

    • It's totally appropriate to describe this new Corolla as a baby Camry, which, in turn, is in a baby Lexus. That's not a bad pedigree for any car.
