The Toyota Corolla is manufactured in five grades, each with different features. Most Toyota Corollas, except the standard base model and the sporty S series, are equipped with folding rear seats, which allow long cargo items to be stored in the vehicle's trunk and extend into the rear passenger compartment with the seats down. A simple latch-release mechanism inside the trunk enables the owner to put down the seats in less than a minute.
