When you live in the Midwest region of the United States you know how important it is to have a vehicle that can handle harsh winter weather. It can be difficult to decide which vehicle to invest in, so today we’re going to take a closer look at one of your options by seeing how well the Toyota Corolla is able to handle winter driving.
Does the Toyota Corolla have All-Wheel Drive?
The 2017 Toyota Corolla comes standard with a 1.8-liter 4-cylinder engine that helps you get where you need to go safely and efficiently. This engine provides 132 horsepower and 128 lb.-ft. of torque. Each Corolla also comes standard with front-wheel drive. Front-wheel drive helps deliver much needed traction to the front wheels of the Corolla, which is especially helpful for driving in rain and snow. The weight of the engine sits on top of the front drive wheels, which helps the car get a better grip on the road. This makes the Corolla very capable in poor weather, especially if it is also equipped with winter tires.
Besides having front-wheel drive, the Corolla also has a number of safety features to help improve its performance in the winter months of the year. The 2017 Corolla comes standard with Toyota’s Star Safety System. This includes Traction Control, Anti-lock Brake System, Brake Assist, Smart Stop Technology, Electronic Brake-force Distribution and Vehicle Stability Control. All of these features work together to help you stay safe even when road conditions aren’t ideal.
