I'm sure handling isn't nearly as good though

yeah, it's got 170 BHP, it's a de-tuned VVTL-i. The car, I assume, is made to compete with the Neon (not SRT-4), Impreza, Lancer, and Jetta.

That Supra rumour has been circulating for years now & I'm kinda getting sick of it.

The Corolla earned its rep in reliability, so they took the GTS motor, limited it just enough to add more reliability & better fuel efficiency. I am sure if you got to tuning it & doing some bolt on mods, it would give a stock GTS a real run. DUMB! But the price tag! That's crazy money for a Corolla!

they might have 30 more HP at the flywheel, but how much do they actually put down at the wheels?

The Corolla XRS is a 4-door sedan, and its tuned down to limit its potential. Seriously, no one buys this car for pure Performance. It also has the same torque as a GT. I wouldn't be surprised to watch a GT win.

Take what you will, but the GTS generates 130lb-ft of twist at 6200 rpms. Toyota slightly redid the engine, and the XRS puts out 127 lb-ft of torque at a lower 4000rpms. Redline is still close to the same. I feel that with some strap on mods, an XRS could give the GTS stock a run for its money on the straightaways. Skidpad results are just shitty.
