Have the midlevel SE trim. The SE includes a sport-tuned suspension for better handling. Don’t concern yourself with a stiff ride, although SE continues to be relatively comfortable on the road. The SE is also an excellent bargain considering most of the safety and tech equipment you receive for the money. Finally, the SE is available with a wide selection of options, in order to pick and choose which ones are right for your budget.
Crossover SUVs could be most of the rage, but there’s still something to be said for the tried-and-true midsize sedan. Exhibit A: the Gallery Toyota Carina Design. Coming off a redesign just this past year, the Gallery Toyota Carina Design is just a spacious, fuel-efficient sedan with a lot of standard safety equipment and lots of options to select from.
As has been the case for a time, you can get the Gallery Toyota Carina Design with a four-cylinder engine or perhaps a more powerful V6, or you can get the miserly Gallery Toyota Carina Design Hybrid. On the highway, the Gallery Toyota Carina Design is comfortable and compliant. Gallery Toyota Carina Design also offers two sporty versions that infuse the Gallery Toyota Carina Design with a little bit of extra personality. Inside, the Gallery Toyota Carina Design supplies a simple yet feature-packed cabin, especially if you choose one of many upper trim levels. There are many of options to choose from over the way.
The Gallery Toyota Carina Design is really as competent because they come. It’s well-priced generally, and modern feature content makes it supremely easy to drive. If you’re trying to find something with a bit more class and space than a small sedan, the Gallery Toyota Carina Design might you need to be the sedan for you.
The Gallery Toyota Carina Design is the bottom trim. It includes a relatively light load of features that includes 16-inch steel wheels, automatic LED headlights, cloth upholstery, a height-adjustable driver’s seat, a rearview camera, keyless entry, a 7-inch touchscreen interface, navigation (GPS Scout Link), Apple CarPlay and Amazon Alexa connectivity, one USB port, Bluetooth, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and a six-speaker sound system.
Standard on every Gallery Toyota Carina Design Safety Sense, which is really a suite of driver assistance features including adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane departure alert with steering assistance, and automatic high beams.
On another rung up the ladder is the LE.It adds a power-adjustable driver’s seat, 17-inch alloy wheels, a 60/40-split folding back seat and a vehicle alarm. For a sporty dynamic, look at the SE.It adds a sport-tuned suspension, revised steering calibration, 18-inch wheels, simulated-leather upholstery (SofTex) seats and paddle shifters.
You can consider the XLE and the XSE trim levels as versions of the LE and the SE, respectively, with a variety of additional comfort and convenience items. Highlights include larger wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, a head-up display, blind-spot monitoring, keyless ignition, a power-adjustable front passenger seat, extra USB ports, a bigger 8-inch touchscreen, and wireless smartphone charging.
Many of the features located on the upper trim levels could be put into the reduced trim levels as options. Other notable options incorporate a sunroof, a JBL sound system combined with an integral navigation system, a head-up display, and a top-down parking camera system.
As sedans go, the Gallery Toyota Carina Design stuff-hauling credentials are pretty solid. The cargo area is large and opens wide, plus the trunk seat is straightforward to fold down to fit longer items. You will find enough cabin storage options to create a lot of people happy. Loading a vehicle seat is straightforward, too.
Cabin storage is good however, not stellar. The forward center console bin is perfect for concealing items but features a hard, slippery floor, so that they slide around noisily. The console bin at your elbow is just a decent size, and you can find modest door pockets in the front and rear that are good for small water bottles only.
The Gallery Toyota Carina Design includes a large trunk, and the 60/40-split folding back seat with trunk-mounted release handles ensure it is an easy task to expand the space. Loading groceries or luggage is helped out by the wide opening and a low liftover height.
Child safety seat accommodation
It’s quite simple to mount a vehicle seat, with obvious and easy to get at lower anchors and package tray-mounted tether point, both under plastic covers. There’s room enough so your front seat will not need to be scooted entirely forward.
