9. Toyota Corolla
Dubbed the best-selling car in the world, the Corolla has been around for a long time as well. Similar to the Civic in every aspect, the Corolla is also an affordable commuter car. The Corolla has always offered an intrinsic value and with consumers, and that’s an important thing. Another benefit that the Corolla has is the longevity of its engine. It’s not uncommon to see a Corolla with 400k miles on the odometer and still running strong.
The Corolla has an average ownership time of 7.7 years, which is quite a long time considering the various product cycles cars go through. In recent years the Corolla has become a lot more upmarket. They have incorporated a sports model and innovative features such as a backup camera. No longer is the Corolla just a bare-bones commuter car, and that’s a good thing.
