Difference between CE,LE, and S?

Hey guys, I'm thinking about buying a corolla but i dont know much about them. What is the difference between The CE, LE, and the S? is it engine differences or is it like body differences? Thanks.

Hi Tercelica. The engine is the same on the Le, Ce and S. The only differnce is the available options and appearance pkgs. The o5 S has smoked Headlight while the Le & Ce don't. Basically it is a matter of taste.

so basically I can still get a CE and have the same speed. I plan on getting a body kit for it so should i just buy the cheaper one. because i'm still going to change out the lights. but i dont want a perfectly good bumper to go to waste.

Haha, if you had a CE, you'd probably have more speed seeing that you won't have side skirts and a spoiler slowing you down.

CE is base model, but it comes with almost everything standard. CD Player, A/C, power mirrors, power steering, clock, all the important stuff and accessories. Engine is the exact same, no difference there. Gauges between S and CE (and LE) are different. S has the white "sporty" guage. Besides the cool S emblem and S carpets, there isn't much of a difference.

I still prefer the XRS over my S. If you're in it for speed, you can either do a supercharged CE, LE, S or a XRS. A supercharged would own an XRS and I think it's in about the same price range. If you're looking into moding though, body kits, engine stuff, custom work, go for the CE or LE, you'll have more stuff to play with on your own.

Well, I've heard two things about turbo kits in CA. Some people say they are absolutely not legal and some say that it is legal if it passes emmision standards. Seeing that TT Supras have turbos stock, I've always been confused and don't know what resources to look them up.

If a cop ever pulls you over, he has no right to ask you to pop your hood. And if your car doesn't pass emmisions, you might need to find the friend of a friend to help you out with that. For the most part, I know that you can get it in and easily get away with it.

MSRP for XRS CAD $25177.8, S with same options $23492.8. Different CAD$1685. Not enough for the SC and you got a 6 spd. SC/turbo the XRS.

Assuming both are being driven by skilled drivers and equal mods, they are very close. S/C'ed comes on strong right off the line because strong low end power whereas, XRS gets the power burst after 6000 rpm to 8500 rpm, but it takes a very short while to get to 6000 rpm because of short first gear and quick revving nature of the car. So yes, it could go either way. Here is a video of a 03 s/c'ed Matrix XR 5 speed vs 04 Matrix XRS 6 speed with equal mods and equal drivers . The XRS has a transmission problem and the second gear synchro does not let him shift at redline so he messed up a few runs.

this is true, but it was still a slower time than the s/c ran the first 2 times. I'd love to see the race again after his tranny is fixed. The vid was put together very well.

A turbo kit must have carb tags on it or it will not pass a visual test. Even then, you are running limited boost. I am not sure if TRD offers a s/c for the XRS. I must say, I have had a supercharged car and now I have a twin turbo supra....love the twins
