Looking at the trim levels beginning with the ‘L,’ it’s easy to decide to upgrade to the LE with the additional blind spot monitor and heated front seats for an extra $1,000. Moving up, you have the option of the LE Upgrade, which includes push-engine start, or the SE, which does not have a sunroof and is nearly the same price.

The 2023 Toyota Corolla features revised trim levels and updated powertrain options. The ‘L’ model’s previous 1.8-litre engine produced 139 horsepower, whereas the new 2.0-litre unit produces 169. This means that the engine will be the same regardless of the model you choose.

That said, the ‘S’ model has more customization options, such as an ECO mode, Sport mode, and sequential shift mode.

All models now feature a new and improved 4.2-inch gauge cluster in addition to the 7.0-inch cluster seen in the XSE.

The SE, XSE, and XLE trims all get new headlights, and the rest of the Corolla lineup gets LED daytime driving lights. Both the SE and XSE get new 18-inch dark grey alloy wheels and a rear bumper.

One other thing to keep in mind is that neither the L nor the LE has smart keys or a push-button starter. Only the upper-level models and the XSE include steering wheel heating.
