Enthusiasts: Rovanperä absolute first tire test for WRC supplier Pirelli

Car Review: 2022 Toyota Corolla Hatchback

  Car Review: 2022 Toyota Corolla Hatchback Before I had kids and a mortgage, I bought a 2004 Toyota Corolla. It’s still running with over 650,000 kilometres on it. Now, my oldest son is months away from getting his driver’s licence, and I took the opportunity to test drive the 2022 Toyota Corolla Hatchback with a manual transmission.
