Is 2020 Toyota Corolla a good choice for $21k car?

I just bought it. I'm wondering if it was good decision. 

There were lots of other options -- Elantra, Impreza, Civic, Mazda 3, Fiesta, Sentra etc etc


It was LE trim, 139 horsepower 1.8 liter. Fabric seats.

    Toyotas are among the most reliable cars made.

    Service it as specified, and it will serve you well for MANY trouble free years, unlike some of the other brands you listed.

    Kind of late now. you're an owner.

    Years ago, I was considering a Corolla, a civic and a Mazda 3.

    I ended up with a mazda but I found out via US News & World report that many reported slow acceleration with the Corolla. That may have been corrected as it was years ago and I was looking at around 2012 models.

    Here is what they say about 2020 models:

    Pros & Cons


    Outstanding predicted reliability rating

    Great fuel economy

    Lots of active safety features



    Sluggish base engine

    Inconsistent transmission performance

    Cramped rear seat in hatchback model


    My mazda has great pickup.i did not think that would be an issue but every now and then it comes in handy. (Even though 90% of the time I don't need it)

    Since you already bought it, whether or not it was a good choice is a moot's yours!

    Having said that, if I was in the compact sedan market today, the Corolla would be one of the vehicles ( along with the Honda and Mazda ) that I would be checking out.

    It should be fine for know but won't be as reliable as the older ones. The cvt transmission will probably go out before the engine does. The old 4 speed automatics were bulletproof.

    Usually, it's better to buy a slightly used car like a rental return.  But you have to look at how much money you would save by doing that.  The Corolla is a reliable car.  It's been around since 1966.

    Any brand new car is a good choice.
