The 2022 Toyota Corolla has eight trim levels, not including the hybrid options. If you’re unfamiliar with the term trim level, it refers to the letters or words following a model’s name. Those letters or words denote a version of the vehicle with its own price and features. So, every trim level of the 2022 Toyota Corolla is still a 2022 Toyota Corolla, but they all have differences too. Keep reading below to learn a little about each of the eight trim levels with us.
The L is the base trim level of the 2022 Toyota Corolla. The base is the model with the lowest starting MSRP. It’s called the base because the other trim levels build off the foundation it provides. The L has a starting price of $20,425.
As the name suggests, the Nightshade Edition will blend into the night with additional black accents. Its blacked-out exterior includes a black grille, black wheels, and black mirror caps. Other models have body-colored mirrors. It starts at $23,575.
The second-highest trim level is the XSE, starting at $26,325. The XSE has unique exterior design features and heated front sport seats with sport fabric inserts.
The LE is the next trim level up from the base, and it has a similar starting price of $20,875. For just a little more money, you add automatic climate control, a larger touchscreen, and a remote keyless entry system.
The Apex Edition trim level has a starting price of $25,570. It has sporty features like the SE and additional touches like a black/bronze body kit. Like the Nightshade Edition, it features black wheels.
The highest trim level is the XSE Apex Edition, which combines some of the best features from the SE Apex Edition and the XSE trim levels. It has a starting MSRP of $28,710. For that price, you get a black/bronze body kit, black wheels, and a lowered sport-tuned suspension.
Starting at $22,875, the SE trim level is a budget-friendly option that adds on a few extra features. It’s a sporty trim level, so the features all have to do with performance and style. These include steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters and 18-inch machined alloy wheels.
Starting at $24,825, the XLE is one of the higher-end luxury models. It features a sliding sunshade, sport fabric seat inserts, and Audio Plus. With these touches, the interior feels even more comfortable.
