Compact and fuel-efficient vehicles like the 2015 Toyota Corolla in Fort Smith, AR, that is available at J. Pauley Toyota, is just the latest version of the best-selling vehicle in the world for the last four decades. The current Corolla is coming off of a radical redesign from last year that took the compact sedan class by storm. The 2015 Toyota Corolla is continuing to serve its owners with its larger passenger cabin that came as a result of enlarging the sedan’s frame by as little as a fraction of an inch in several places. The completed process resulted in a nearly six percent increase in passenger room. The backseat of a Corolla might not be comfortable for everybody, but certainly it will accommodate taller passengers than in previous models.
Overall the changes for the 2015 Toyota Corolla in Fort Smith, AR are cosmetic and subtle. The biggest change comes in the way of a center armrest, between the driver’s seat and front passenger that can be folded up or down to meet what needs there may be. This option is available on many of the upper trim grades of the 2015 Corolla. Also new for the 2015 model-year is the new sub-trim grades, Plus and Premium.
