The 2018 Toyota Corolla iM is One Hot Hatchback

February 22nd, 2018 by

It’s Affordable

Looking good has never been so easy on the wallet. The 2018 Toyota Corolla iM has a starting MSRP of $18,850. This base trim has a 1.8-liter, four-cylinder engine and a six-speed manual transmission. It may not be the fastest of the bunch, but it’s definitely the smartest financial move. If efficiency is your thing, consider the second trim level, the iM CVT. With an MSRP of $19,590, this trim uses an automatic transmission alternative— continuously variable transmission (CVT). CVTs are known to get better fuel economy.

It’s Modern

The iM is a modern ride fit for a modern era. The exterior emanates a sporty vibe, while the interior is a cool, laid-back cabin. A 7-inch touch-screen display, complete with Bluetooth connectivity and a backup camera, makes this feel like all the other tech-savvy cars on the road. LED lights all around, 17-inch alloy wheels, and a black honeycomb front grille complete the modern exterior. To listen to your favorite tunes, connect to your Bluetooth, iPod, or Aha radio app. And of course, there’s always AM/FM radio.

It’s Sporty

For starters, the body kit on the iM is snazzy and is complemented by a rear spoiler. With power folding side mirrors, there’s no parking space too tight to squeeze into. Also, the mirrors are heated so you can defrost them efficiently on an icy morning. On the interior, the driver and passenger will enjoy sport bucket seats and dual-zone climate control. The dash is made of premium materials with accent stitching, and the infotainment system rests within a black gloss accent frame. As far as handling goes, the sporty MacPherson suspension allows the iM to ride smoothly around town, and it hugs corners around curves on winding roads. Press the Sport Mode button and get that extra little oomph you may need. Just be ready for a bit of a thrill.

It’s Safe

Toyota Safety Sense is standard on both of the iM trims. It contains safety systems found on all newer car models like forward-collision and lane-departure warning, high beams that turn on automatically, and emergency braking for when danger presents itself. When the unexpected happens, it’s nice to know that your vehicle can look out for you.

With so many perks on the iM, it’s clear why it’s a hot commodity. This car has style, sport, safety, and affordability all wrapped up in one vehicle. See for yourself why the iM hatchback may be a smart move for you and your wallet in 2018 by visiting Hendrick Sandy Springs Toyota today.
