How to Calculate The Dealer Cost of a Toyota Corolla
Formula for Calculating Dealer Cost:
- Example: Base Toyota Corolla invoice price + the dealer Invoice price of all the options + destination - Holdback = Total Dealer Cost.
- What is Holdback? A hidden amount that manufacturers give back to a dealer. It is a percentage of the MSRP or the Invoice price.
Total Dealer Cost - Rebate and Incentive + Taxes / Licensing Fees = True Dealer Cost. (You can get rebates and incentives here)

ZSE Apex Edition Corollas have increased stabilizer-bar spring rates and increased coil-spring rates. The Corolla also has Electronic Power Steering and power-assisted, ventilated disc brakes.
The Corolla is no sports car, but there's more than enough power for good acceleration from a dead stop. The car handles nicely too.
