Best Used Toyota Corollas 

It’s hard to believe that the Toyota Corolla debuted way back in 1966. It became the best-selling car in the world by 1974 and has gone through multiple generations, during which over 40 million have been sold. That makes for a substantial number of used Corollas in the market.

The Toyota Corolla is the world’s best-selling car to date. It is known for being simple, economical, and extremely reliable. The compact sedan holds its value better than most vehicles, and for good reason. If you are in the market for a used car, and a small sedan will fit your needs, the Corolla is likely a better choice than any when it comes to tried and true value, dependability, and longevity.

Today’s Corolla is in its 11th generation, which started with the complete redesign of the 2014 model. Depending on your sources, there are some discrepancies in the Corolla’s generations. However, it is most important to note that, prior to the 11th gen, 2009 and 2003 marked the car’s major redesigns. So for practical purposes, we will cover the final two model years of the 2003 (9th gen), through the 2009 (10th gen), to the present.
