The Green Car Journal has named the eleventh-generation Corolla a finalist for the 2014 Green Car of the Year award and one of its top 5 Green Cars for 2014. The Corolla also earned the magazine’s ‘Green Car Product of Excellence’ distinction. Finalists were selected for “their achievements in raising the bar in environmental performance.” One selection factor is the model’s availability to the mass market, giving it the potential to make a real environmental impact.
What a coup for the dependable and reliable Corolla to be able to share the spotlight with the iconic Prius, long synonymous with green car awards and distinctions.
The Green Car of the Year will be announced at the L.A. Auto Show, Nov. 20-21, 2013.
