The first word that may come to mind when thinking about the 1995 Toyota Corolla is ""reliability."" This sedan wasn’t designed with excitement in mind, but it does offer the features and reliability buyers want in a first time car. It also meets the needs of a family. There aren’t a lot of standard features, but the cloth interior is easy to clean, and the control panel is user friendly.

The 1995 Toyota Corolla experiences a few changes. The 1.8-liter engine loses about 10 hp due to tougher requirements on emission regulations. It also receives more torque. On the DX models, Toyota chose to offer improved interior fabric.
The 1995 Toyota Corolla is intended as a family car. It is kept nice and simple. This isn’t the car that buyers want to make a statement. It blends into the background pretty easily. However, with its simple, direct design, it more than meets the needs of the typical family. With its boxy shape and simple lines, it looks unassuming in either body style.
The 1995 Toyota Corolla is pretty standard as well. Even on the upper trim levels, there isn’t a great deal of luxury to look forward to. On the other hand, it is well designed. Both driver and passengers can look forward to adequate space in the front and rear. Bucket seats are featured in the front and all versions come with cloth upholstery.
Performance & Handling
The 1995 Toyota Corolla is known to be an incredibly reliable car and when well cared for doesn’t require a lot of repairs. The 1.6-liter engine provides 105 hp with 100 lb-ft of torque. The DX and LE equipped with the 1.8-liter four-cylinder offers 105 hp and 117 lb-ft of torque. It has relatively good fuel economy for its class with the larger 1.8-liter engine still pulling 23/31 mpg city/highway.
The 1995 Toyota Corolla comes with standard driver and passenger airbags in the front. Four wheel anti-lock brakes are an optional feature.
