Not sure if there is a special thread dedicated to this, if so, sorry for the new thread and someone please direct me.


I am wondering what deals some people are getting on their new '17 Toyota Corolla's or what specials their local dealers are offering?


One of our local Toyota dealers (we have 4) are already offering $4,000 off of MSRP on all new '17 Corollas. I imagine all would be in that ball-park range as they generally match prices with the other. It seems like in the past it was well into the summer before they offered deals like this.


With these prices, they have a '17 Corolla XLE that has a selling price of $18,400 (after $4000 off msrp) and a '17 Corolla LE with a selling price of $16,200 (after $4000 off msrp). I am not sure if I could wait even until summer or fall and get a better deal than that? I really wanted to wait until around April or May to get a new car, but not sure if they will still have the $4000 off then now or not. I am not sure why they are offering so much off on them now.


The other cars on my list were the '17 Honda Civic sedan and the all-new '17 Subaru Impreza sedan, but the Honda hasn't had the best reliability ratings in 2016 and the '17 Impreza is pricey and it is tough to get deals on a new Subaru. In order to get any forward collision prevention system on Impreza, you have to at least get the "Premium" trim (it is not available on the base model), then add another $1300 for "eye-sight" - the same system that is standard on Corolla. However the Subaru has all-wheel drive (which I really do not need) and a telematics system, both unavailable on Corolla. The Impreza Limited can MSRP for around $28,000 after you add the "eye-sight" system. Eye-sight is to Subaru what Safety-Sense is to Toyota and Honda sensing is to Honda.


Odd that Honda and Toyota offer it on their base models, but Subaru does not - - not even as an option, you can only get it on the mid-line "Premium" and top of the line "Limited" trim.


Thanks.

I'm with NorthenCorolla. Not that there should be many bugs - the main novelties being electronic nannies that have been available on the Corolla elsewhere for some time with even park assist ! - but just in case. Those rebates sound great but there is always puffing... do they include the $1,500 Toyota's cash back offer and every other fees like delivery and so on. Of course end of the year might be a good time to buy as dealers want badly to reach lucrative sales goals, but so are each end of the months. Since the novelty effect is slowly fading for the Civic, maybe Corolla will go lighter on rebates... or Civic will go heavier. In any case, Toyota obviously plays the "value" card for Corolla vs the highly competitive Civic so I don't see the good offers disappearing. Also remember that Honda Sensing add $1,000 to the base price of the Civic, which is already higher than the Corolla with Safety-Sense.

I also agree, TSS was already introduced on other models in 2016, so I wouldn't be too frightened. That's what your warranty is for in case things don't go as planned.

And also, the new Civic has been great to put pressure on Toyota to keep the incentives on the Corolla, so don't expect to pay MSRP anytime soon unless major s**t happens to the price of oil.

I am new to the forum. I am planning to buy 2017 Corolla XLE in white color. The Autonation in Irvine wanted $22400 OTD. Is it good deal to buy? Thanks
I don't now your area market nor local taxes and extras you might have asked but that's about the price on Toyota's website after the $1,500 cash rebate and more than the OP was quoted.

Don't discount the Subaru AWD system. It works really well in the winter, and inclement weather, and there's no huge hit to fuel economy because of it. There are varying opinions, but I think the Impreza is a bit more of a premium car than the Corolla (constantly noticing differences between my mother's '12 Impreza Limited, and my S, and while it's got 4 years on my Corolla, it looks just as good inside). Subaru doesn't tend to discount as much - but they're well worth it. Unfortunately, the higher options are going to be limited to the higher trims. You will pay a little more for the Subaru overall, but it's well worth it. That being said, I don't regret the Corolla purchase, it just happens the car isn't much more than basic transportation.
