Gotta get one.
I have had so many cars over the years, this is one of the best. For a small car, plenty of room, has a great stereo system, smooth ride, and super comfy to drive. Plenty of power for a little car, I love it so much, and with Toyota, is super reliable.
Purchased in November 2016.
Great Toyota car

A great little car!
I use my car for personal use, and commuting too and from work. Roughly 20,000km/yr. I have the car serviced as per the log book scheduled, and have never had a fault mentioned about the car. That is with mechanics separate of Toyota as well. These are popular cars for good reason, and won’t stray from Toyota cars in the future. Very happy.
Best car I’ve ever driven.
Was sceptical at first because I had my heart set on another car. After reading so many bad reviews I decided to look at Toyota instead. Dom from Toyota Melville helped me find a car that would suit me perfectly.
He found a car within my budget and let me test drive it. Unlike other car dealerships I didn’t feel pressured into buying it then and there. He offered me a great deal and great inclusions. I went home to think about it but by the time I got home my mind was made up.
Would never buy another brand car again and would highly recommend this car. It’s not a huge car but offers so much legroom and boot space like a bigger make car would. Reliable and capped price servicing.
2016 Corrolla is a nice looking car on tje outside however its seats are very uncomfortable unless you are an adult that is not more than 70kgs with a smaller frame.
For the price that you pay it is lacking in technology which is very sad to see especially when the competitors are the likes of hyundai, mazda etc...
If the price was around 5k cheaper then the shortcuts and cheap plastic that toyota took would have been to tolerable but fir a 24k starting price with on road costs it isnt.
Hope the 2020 new generation will outdo this one
Bought this car around 14 months ago. My partner couldn't be happier.
They have updated the sound system since 2015 model which is much improved.
My only complaint is that Bluetooth phone & sound system controls are all on the left side which is so irritating. Whereas the 2015 model has them on separate sides so you really didn't have to think about hitting the wrong control. Come on Toyota please fix this with the next generation.... :)
Great fuel economy.
Disappointed that they discontinued the Positano Bronze for this year model....
My only complaint is that it isn't as responsive in pick up as my 2015 model but my partner loves it all the same.
Very reliable easy to drive.
I purchased Toyota corolla Ascent sport white perl colour in Mar 2017. I love this car!!!!!No mechanical issues at all and i enjoy driving every day.
I drive 40km to get to work but its very comfortable and I dont get back sore like my old car. ( i used to drive holden)I am 100% satisfied with the car, but the only thing i want to mention is..a touch screen is very slow and i get frustrated sometimes. Otherwise no issues. This car is the best i have ever own.
Good value for money
I am driving Toyota Corolla 2016 Hatchback. I drive everyday to work daily. The car runs smoothly and I hardly have any issue mechanically. It is fantastic to drive, much better than Nissan or Huyndai. Very fuel efficient. The hatch back version is also easy to park in shopping centre.
It is also cheap to service the car. I service every 5000km. I just buy oil and air filter and it cost me less than 100 to do it myself.
It is extremely good value for money and I would not buy another brand.
great economy city car
Great car to drive, no hiccups so far, spacious enough for a city car, good size of a boot is a cherry on top but I believe that its paint can be scraped off easily, way easier than the Toyota's previous and other models. It is a fuel-efficient car with the very low running cost. Best in the market for people who are looking a small family car
Toyota Corolla 2016
I back traded my2014 Hyundai i35 red trophy for pearl Toyota Sports wonderful car good price only 16000k still under warranty . Purchased at Hyundai Rockingham and very happy with sales person great service had it 6 weeks goes wonderful any issues they are there to help. Good after sales. That is hard to get.
Fantastic car ever!
It is a very reliable car, and at low petrol consuming. The engine is beautiful, strong but quiet. I like the reverse camera showing up on the screen which really reduced lots of hassles for me. The interior design is very thoughtful. The back seats have spacious legroom. very comfortable.
Ughhh I can’t explain in words how amazing this car is! I’ve driven from Dubbo, NSW to Newcastle, NSW as well as driving from Ipswich, QLD to Dubbo, NSW and both trips the car drove like a dream! It’s like the perfect family car as well as every now and then if you like racing then they go pretty hard too!
Great car for getting from A to B
For a young woman the aspects that were most important to me were reliability, safety and fuel consumption, and this car suits me just fine.
Performance and handling wise is all good, smooth. I like the connectivity and sound system.
Fuel consumption is reasonable, my last car was a slightly smaller manual car, and this automatic Corolla uses less fuel than my last one, so I can't complaint.
Overall, it works well and happy with it for daily use.
i have for 2 month run ok . touch screen its good and have many options never like this one 2018 im happy with toyota and castumer services as will competing corolla withe other car i give full star and services cheap only $150 only i give 4 star because they interst 5% pit high
Love love love
Absolutely love my corolla, so easy to drive and manuver into car parks and parking spaces, The touch screen is easy to use, the lock out when driving on the touch screen is a bit annoying for passengers but other than that it’s a great car! The manual gear box is amazing and the gear ratio is fantastic. Love love love my corolla
The driving experience is very good. Agile and a safe drive for my wife and daughter. Car is quiet, with the sport switch acceleration is good. Not in the range of a turbo I30 but a lot less. $22,000 compared to $30,000
Only issue is to get used to the drop nose. Getting front sensors for $450 is a good idea. Easy to park, good fuel efficiency and my wife and daughter love it. They also liked the Mazda 3 Astina but the "I stop" drive drove them nuts so it lost out hands down.
Corolla-ing along! Oh What a Feeling!
We wanted a small, reliable, run about, that was still big enough for a family of 4 (2 Adults, 2 Primary School age kids).
The Corolla fits the bill perfectly but may gets a little squeezy in the back when the kids near their late teens.
It is fairly cheap to run and gets reasonable economy considering it generally does a lot of small trips. When it has been taken on extended trips the economy becomes even better.
As per usual with Toyota it isn't the cheapest in its class and doesn't have all bells and whistles of others but the value in it...
Perfect first car
This is the first car I purchased for myself and I absolutely love it. It's small but it is surprisingly roomy in the back seats, two tall men have fit comfortably in the passenger seats at the back and noted that to me. It is really reliable and I have not had a problem yet! (It's been about 8 months). The reverse camera is really handy and I deliberately did not purchase the option with the inbuilt GPS as the Bluetooth setting means I can easily use Google Maps to navigate. The only downside I can think of is the voice command system which is unreliable and can get infuriating when it doesn't understand what you want. I have ended up abandoning the use of it altogether, but it's not a big loss.
Best value for small car
For about $24000, you can't get much better value for a no-frills small car. It's easy to drive, has rear-mirror, good-sized touch-screen.
I didn't give it 5-stars because I feel the rear window is too small (poor visability when changing lanes). Having said that, it is a very common problem amongst the small car models. Also the small boot space.
I like the little sunglasses compartment. I am old-school, so still like using handbrake and key-ignition (not a fan of the brake button and touch-start).
Great reliability, Toyota is a very trusted brand. Low running costs.

Reliable and cheap to run.
I own a 2014 model corolla ascent sport which nearly completed 90k in odometer. This is my first car and bought it as brand new. Never had any serious issue so far. Handling and performance is up to the mark. Road noise was bit annoying and nearly resolved once I replaced my "sports tyres". Also had experienced increased rattling from dash board which they fixed during routine service. Very good in fuel efficiency with a impressive 6.5L/100km. Back seat leg room is average and front sports seat may not be a good option for people with back issues as getting out and getting in bit problematic.
