2014 Corolla: Best Road Trip Features

Whether you are looking for a car for short trips or longer road trips, the 2014 Toyota Corolla can be an excellent choice. This car has the same general features as its predecessors, but there have been a number of improvements, including some that are great for road trips.

Road trips are about having a good time, and that is a real possibility with the 2014 Corolla. It is more comfortable for long distances than its predecessors. Even better, its improved gas mileage can help you save money no matter how far you are traveling.

Comfort and Space

One of the first things you will notice when you sit inside the new 2014 Toyota Corolla is that it is more comfortable than the 2013 model. In addition to a new focus on using quality, comfortable materials in the interior, there is increased legroom. In fact, the rear legroom in the new Corolla is much better than most other midsize sedans, reaching 41.4 inches. The seats themselves are much more comfortable, and the front seats have additional lateral, lumbar, and thigh support in this model.

Although the trunk remains the same size at about 13 cubic feet, it is easier to load because of its wide opening, making it a breeze to fit in luggage for road trips. If you need more storage space and only have people sitting in the front, you can even split the rear seat and fold it down. For even more comfort during your ride, the 2014 Corolla has several sound-insulating features, particularly with the glass and seals, so you won’t have to listen to highway noises while driving.

Audio System

For long road trips, keeping yourself alert and entertained can be one of the biggest priorities, and the new audio system in the 2014 Toyota Corolla can help you achieve those goals. If you want to listen to music while on the road, you can use the standard audio input jack found in all cars. A unique feature in the Corolla is a USB port that is Apple-compatible, making it easy to connect and use your iPod or iPhone to listen to music during your drive. You don’t even have to reach over to change songs as there are audio controls on the steering wheel. For added safety and convenience, the 2014 Corolla comes ready to connect to your Bluetooth devices.


A final but crucial road trip feature in the 2014 Toyota Corolla is its great mileage. The standard version can get you up to 29 miles per gallon in the city and 37 on the highway*. The LE Eco does even better at 30 mpg in the city and 42 on the highway**. A unique feature is the ECO button that can help conserve fuel by slightly reducing interior features, such as air conditioning, making road trips even more affordable.
