Fortunately, Toyota customers in Birmingham have warmed to the new Toyota models, and they would like to know the finer variations between the Corolla LE and the Corolla LE ECO.
LE and LE ECO are just trim choices on the Corolla; they have a lot of standard features in common. The 2014 Corolla has better handling than the 2013 model, is roomier, and has improved LED headlights. These two trim packages also come standard with steering wheel phone controls to keep your driving safe and your phone conversations hands-free. The new Corolla has an exterior geared more towards looking refined and less sporty, giving it what Kelley Blue Book calls a “home run” interior. Both trim levels feature this improved interior, but they do have quite a few detailed differences. Here are the trim differences of the Corolla LE and LE ECO.
