Spacious and Roomy
I’d suggest that the S in Corolla S should stand for “Spacious” but that wouldn’t be quite right, since all Corolla models get solid front and rear passenger amenities. The Corolla S is spacious enough for adults to sit in the back, but like many other compacts, a third adult won’t fit comfortably. Competitively speaking, the Corolla trumps the Nissan Sentra and Mazda3 in terms of rear seat leg-room and is about on par with the class leaders in terms of rear seat head room, too.
Trunk space is also acceptable in the Corolla, offering 13 cubic feet of storage. Standard folding rear seats help owners fit bigger objects into the car. Buyers looking for more space in a compact should opt for the Hyundai Elantra, or move up to a hatchback, like the Mazda3 Sport, Focus or Elantra GT.
