In 1997, the Corolla was available as a Base model, a CE, or a DX. The Base and CE both had a 1.6L 5-speed drivetrain, and the DX had a 1.8L 5-speed. Hope this helps you determine which one you have.

Testimonial: "By 5-speed, do you mean stick shift? This car is automatic though with power window. How does one tell it's CE or DX? It's probably not a Base model."

    The automatic transmission was an available option on all three, while the power windows option was available only on the CE and DX. It all comes down to which engine you have. The CE has a 1.6L and the Dx has a 1.8L. If you look at your registration or title, check the fifth digit of the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN). If it is the letter "A", you have the 1.6L and your car is a CE. If the fifth digit is a "B", you have the 1.8L and your car is a DX. Hope this helps.
