The next model after the Corolla L is the Corolla LE priced at $19,800 and the higher end XLE version is priced at $22,690.
Compared to the 2016 edition, the new cars are slightly lower in price but offers more features and a new look.

The most expensive one in the lineup is the 2017 Toyota Corolla XSE at $23,545. Buyers who have a keen eye on enjoying the best fuel efficiency can still go for the Le Eco priced at an affordable $20,200. The iM hatchback edition is now equipped with multiple safety features. Forward collision prevention technology is a new addition allowing the car to automatically brake when a collision is imminent.

The Toyota 86 2017 edition uses a much powerful 2.0-liter flat four engine capable of delivering 205 horsepower with 156 lb feet of torque.
