It’s no secret that the Toyota Corolla is one of the most popular and successful vehicles of all time. The compact sedan continues to offer great features for a low price without sacrificing quality. The 2021 model year brings with it six trim levels of the regular gasoline-fueled Corolla, with the SE sitting near the middle.
The SE trim is a balancing act that will probably prove to be one of the most successful trims for the 2021 model year. It delivers great fuel efficiency, a youthfully energetic engine, and all the modern technology you expect without ringing up a scary price tag. Not to be confused with the SE Nightshade Edition, the regular SE is meant to improve on the features available for the L and LE trims, whereas the SE Nightshade Edition adds cosmetic changes like black badging. The chart below shows how well the SE trim of the 2021 Toyota Corolla performs and what features it comes with.
