2022 Toyota Corolla Sedan Trims & Specs

The 2022 Toyota Corolla lineup includes gas and hybrid models, all of which are front-wheel drive and feature a CVT - except for the SE and SE Apex Edition which can both be had with a manual.

The base model comes with a 1.8-liter four-cylinder with 139 hp and 126 lb-ft of torque that is sent through 15-inch steel wheels. A seven-inch touch display manages the impressive infotainment system, while standard LED headlights light the way ahead. The LE model boasts wheels one size bigger and automatic climate control, an eight-inch touchscreen infotainment display keyless entry, and a sunroof option. On the Hybrid LE, the 15-inch alloys remain, and the engine is supplemented with two electric motors for total outputs of 121 hp/105 lb-ft.

The SE is the first in the range to come with the 2.0-liter engine and its 169 hp/151 lb-ft output. It gets upgraded headlights, 18-inch alloy wheels, Special Dark Gray Metallic styling accents, sports seats, a leather steering wheel, and a twin-exit exhaust. The SE 6MT gets a six-speed manual transmission, push-button start, and a power sunroof, while the SE Nightshade Edition builds on the regular SE with numerous black styling accents, many of which replace the gray ones on said regular SE. The XLE reverts to the smaller engine but still gets a sunroof, 16-inch alloy wheels, a faux leather interior, heated front seats, and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert. The top XSE trim gets Dark Gray Metallic accents so that you can tell it has the bigger engine, along with 18-inch alloys, a power-adjustable seat for the driver, and a twin-exit exhaust. The Apex Edition trims, both with the bigger 2.0-liter engine, have sportier suspension tuning, black alloy wheels, a sport-tuned exhaust system, and a body kit.

🚘What's the Price of the 2022 Toyota Corolla Sedan?

Numerous Toyota Corolla models are on offer, the cheapest in the lineup being the base L trim. It retails at an MSRP of $20,075 before a $1,025 destination charge. Stepping up to the LE will set you back $20,525, while the SE has a cost of $22,525. The SE Manual is a little pricier at $23,225 - the same price you'll pay for the CVT-only SE Nightshade Edition. The one-trim Hybrid LE has a starting price of $23,650.

The XLE is one of the more premium models in the lineup and costs $24,475, while the top XSE trim has the highest price of any standard Toyota Corolla in the USA and costs $25,975. Last year, we commented that the Apex Edition models were rather ludicrously priced, and this year, Toyota has dropped their prices by nearly $1,000, starting at $25,220 for the SE Apex Edition, while the XSE Apex Edition is $28,360.

Additional Packages

The base L model Corolla isn't available with any options or packages, but the LE has access to two: The LE Convenience package and the LE Premium package. The former costs $1,150 and adds remote keyless entry, alloy wheels, push-button start, and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, while the latter adds the same features along with a power tilt-and-slide sunroof for $2,000.

For the Hybrid model, there is the $500 blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert upgrade, or the new $1,525 Premium Interior Package, which adds SofTex and front-seat heating, as well as leather on the steering wheel and power driver's seat settings. There's also a $2,025 combination of these two bundles.

The SE gets access to a Premium package that costs $1,500 and adds blind-spot monitoring, color-coded heated wing mirrors, and a smart key with push-button start, along with a power moonroof. More expensive packages are available that add an eight-inch touchscreen or the bigger screen and a nine-speaker JBL system. These cost $2,265 and $2,865 respectively.

Both top trims are available with two packages: the XLE/XSE Connectivity Package and the XLE/XSE Connectivity Package With Options. The first costs $1,715 and adds a nine-speaker JBL sound system, navigation, and Qi inductive wireless charging. The second costs $2,165 and builds on the first with adaptive LED headlights and ambient interior lighting. Pricing remains the same whichever model of the two you add it to. No packages are available for either of the Apex Edition models, although summer tires are available for these derivatives at no extra cost.

πŸš—What 2022 Toyota Corolla Sedan Model Should I Buy?

There are plenty of options here, but the first decision to be made is whether you want gas or hybrid power. If the answer is the latter, there is only one model to go for. If you're opting for gas, the one thing that you can't compromise on is the 2.0-liter engine. For that reason, the L, LE, and XLE trims are out of the running. While the fun-seekers among us would be tempted to immediately opt for the SE 6MT for its manual transmission, most won't be buying a car like this and looking to have some fun on quiet back roads. Still, we'd get this model for its added features compared to the CVT, including a sunroof and push-button start. This would be a safe, comfortable, and well-specced choice. For the die-hards, the limited Apex Edition models, with their sport-tuned suspension, are wonderful. However, they lack any significant increase in power, which is disappointing.
