Despite being a compact sedan, the 2014 Toyota Corolla can be an incredibly comfortable car to drive while on a road trip, providing you and your passengers with enough space to stretch out. This car is a popular option for road trips due to its comfort as well as the technology and features available.
There are four main trims available for the 2014 Corolla: the L, LE, LE Eco, and S. Each of these provide a comfortable trip with built-in entertainment and connectivity via Bluetooth. The Corolla is designed to be perfect for trips of all lengths, from short commutes to work to week-long road trips.
Entune Premium Audio
The Entune Premium Audio system is one of the best road trip features of the 2014 Toyota Corolla. It helps you stay on track with an integrated navigation system. It also includes the Entune App Suite, which allows you to connect your smartphone to the infotainment system, and it will also give you access to sports, fuel prices, traffic, weather, and even stocks. With the app suite, you can listen to music on iHeartRadio or Pandora, easily buy movie tickets or make reservations for dinner while on the go, or do an internet search using Bing. It also, of course, lets you listen to music via the USB/iPod connect, auxiliary audio jack, and CD/DVD slot.
Steering Wheel Controls
When driving, it is important to keep your eyes on the road, and the 2014 Toyota Corolla has a feature that allows you to do just that. You can get audio controls directly on your steering wheel so you don’t have to take your eyes off the road to fiddle with the entertainment system while driving.
Road trips tend to be expensive so saving money on gas can make a large difference most of the time. This is not an issue with the 2014 Corolla. The standard trims (the L, LE, and S) range in gas mileage from 27 to 29 miles per gallon in the city and 36 to 38 on the highway, putting the Corolla at the top of its class in terms of fuel efficiency. For even better fuel consumption, you can opt for the LE Eco, which will give you 30 miles per gallon in the city and 40 or 42 on the highway, depending on the model you choose. Such great fuel efficiency means that not only will you save money on gas, but you also won’t have to worry about stopping to fill up your tank as often so you can focus on driving.
Comfort and Seating
Although the 2014 Corolla is a compact sedan, it has seating that will make you think it is at least a midsize. All of the numbers in terms of headroom, shoulder room, and hip room are around the average for its class. Where the Corolla stands out, however, is in terms of legroom. Rear passengers will get 41.4 inches of legroom, which is five more inches than the class average. This means that even if your road trip involves three people or more, you will all be comfortable during the drive.
