2009 Toyota Corolla XRS Click above for high-res image gallery The Toyota Corolla hasn't stirred passion since the AE86, so it's forgivable to greet an all-new version with a yawn. The Corolla recipe has been refined to the point of grand success for so long now that changes must be approached carefully. A new version must not upset the car's combination of refinement, value, and durability. To be sure, the 2009 Corolla is likely to continue the model's grade point average full of red circles from Consumer Reports. Objectively, it's tough to top - subjectively, not so much. %Gallery-20668% Photos Copyright ©2008 Dan Roth / Weblogs, Inc. New duds certainly help. The Corolla has gone from blobby to baby Camry, and it's one of the handsomest pieces of sheetmetal in Toyota's U.S. lineup. Like the last-gen Corolla S, the 2009 Corolla XRS gets extra body frippery, and the visual appeal of the Corolla XRS rates high. Toyota is still a little flummoxed when it comes to making the track appropriately wide for the bodykit, but it's harder to catch the 2009 model looking uncomfortable in its skin. The red on our test car didn't hurt matters either, and the XRS gets further niced-out with alloy rims, a black mesh-pattern grille, black headlight housings and foglamps for visual distinction. The trunklid spoiler is the only boil we can find on this car. On the spec sheet, the Corolla XRS pleads its case convincingly. There's four-wheel disc brakes, a firmed up suspension, a strut tower brace, and most importantly for the sporty overtures, a bigger engine. The Corolla XRS uses Toyota's 158-horsepower 2.4-liter four cylinder in place of the 1.8-liter, 132-horsepower standard unit. Nearly 500cc of extra displacement chews the fuel economy numbers down to 22/30, each off by 5 mpg from the 1.8L without delivering a gee-whiz increase in performance. The torque is welcome, but we'd trade it in a second for better control feel and a more supple ride. The leather-wrapped wheel and shift knob bode well, but only the shifter offers some mechanical feel. Steering feel is largely absent, though the weighting is good and action linear from the electrically boosted rack and pinion. The clutch friction point is equally smothered, making smooth driving a deliberate practice. Drive by wire strikes again, too, making strange things happen on the tachometer upon clutch engagement. At least the chassis can keep up when you get frisky, though it's only feigning interest and the ride can be a jigglefest on some surfaces. The Corolla XRS is not a pocket rocket in the vein of the Civic Si or Mazda3. If it's not a star athlete, what exactly is the Corolla XRS? A handsome, well-trimmed, economical car. All the safety gear is there; airbags left, right, center, and curtain. Seatbelt pretensioners, active head restraints, and stability control. Leather upholstery is available on the decently bolstered seats, though we tried the cloth. It would be stretching to call the chairs sportyAdditional InformationDoor Handle Color - Body-Color, Grille Color - Black, Mirror Color - Body-Color, Air Filtration, Front Air Conditioning, Front Air Conditioning Zones - Single, Cargo Area Light, Center Console - Front Console With Storage, Cupholders - Front, Cupholders - Rear, One-Touch Windows - 1, Power Outlet(S) - Two 12v, Power Steering, Steering Wheel - Tilt And Telescopic, Storage - Door Pockets, Vanity Mirrors - Dual, Front Brake Type - Ventilated Disc, Front Shock Type - Gas, Front Spring Type - Coil, Front Struts - Macpherson, Front Suspension Type - Lower Control Arms, Rear Brake Type - Drum, Rear Shock Type - Gas, Rear Spring Type - Coil, Rear Suspension Type - Torsion Beam, Abs - 4-Wheel, Braking Assist, Electronic Brakeforce Distribution, Front Brake Diameter - 10.8, Front Suspension Classification - Independent, Rear Brake Diameter - 9.0, Rear Stabilizer Bar, Rear Suspension Classification - Semi-Independent, Gauge - Tachometer, In-Dash Cd - Mp3 Playback, Satellite Radio - Siriusxm Ready, Total Speakers - 4, Warnings And Reminders - Tire Fill Alert, Antenna Type - Element, Auxiliary Audio Input - Jack, In-Dash Cd - Single Disc, Radio - Am/Fm, Speed Sensitive Volume Control, Daytime Running Lights, Headlights - Auto On, Spare Tire Mount Location - Inside, Spare Tire Size - Temporary, Tire Type - All Terrain, Wheels - Steel, Tire Pressure Monitoring System, Wheel Covers - Full, Window Defogger - Rear, Power Windows, 2-Stage Unlocking Doors, Active Head Restraints - Dual Front, Airbag Deactivation - Occupant Sensing Passenger, Anti-Theft System - Alarm With Remote, Anti-Theft System - Engine Immobilizer, Body Side Reinforcements - Side Impact Door Beams, Child Safety Door Locks, Child Seat Anchors - Latch System, Crumple Zones - Front, Crumple Zones - Rear, Emergency Interior Trunk Release, Energy Absorbing Steering Column, Front Airbags - Dual, Power Door Locks, Side Airbags - Front, Side Curtain Airbags - Front, Side Mirror Adjustments - Manual Folding, Side Mirror Adjustments - Power, Driver Seat Manual Adjustments - 4, Driver Seat Manual Adjustments - Height, Front Headrests - 2, Front Headrests - Adjustable, Front Seat Type - Bucket, Passenger Seat Manual Adjustments, Rear Headrests - 3, Rear Headrests - Adjustable, Rear Seat Folding - Split, Rear Seat Type - 60-40 Split Bench, Rear Seatbelts - Center 3-Point, Seatbelt Force Limiters - Front, Seatbelt Pretensioners - Front, Upholstery - Cloth
