Pricing and Standard Features

While there is a lot to be said about the styling, fuel economy, and feature availability in both vehicles, what drives a lot of car shoppers towards these Toyota sedans are the price tags. The 2018 Toyota Yaris iA offers the smallest starting price tag in the Toyota lineup with a starting MSRP of $15,950. And, considering there is just one choice in trim, the price won't go up too much from there even with the optional automatic transmission.

The 2018 Toyota Corolla's starting MSRP of $18,600 is also very tempting. Unlike the 2018 Yaris iA, car shoppers interested in the 2018 Corolla have six well-equipped trim levels to choose from and moving up the levels will make a difference in the overall price, but even the 2018 Corolla's top-level XSE trim has a starting MSRP of just $22,780.

Car shoppers may be surprised at the list of standard features available on each sedan for the price. The 2018 Yaris iA comes with only one trim, so aside from the available automatic transmission, all features are standard and car shoppers can expect 16-inch alloy wheels, power side mirrors with LED turn signal indicators, a rearview camera, keyless entry and ignition, Bluetooth compatibility and more. The 2018 Toyota Corolla packs in even more value with standard Toyota Safety Sense, LED headlights, an integrated backup camera, and more.
