Toyota Corolla

Toyota Corolla

  The Toyota Corolla is the longest-running model in Toyota’s lineup, as it debuted in the U.S. in 1968 – two years after it made its debut in Japan. Through the years, the Corolla has remained the same compact model, but has undergone several format changes – coupe, wagon, sedan, etc. The Corolla was at one time the entry-level model for Toyota, but is now only the entry-level sedan, as the Yaris now stands as Toyota’s entry model. There is no scheduled redesign for the Corolla in the near future, though a Tourer – station wagon – version has been caught testing.

The Corolla is the car that made Toyota a household name. For over forty years, Corolla has meant reliable transportation at an affordable price. The current generation is not breaking this winning formula, and its trying to add a little luxury into the affordable car mix.

The Corolla was first introduced as a small rear-drive subcompact in the late 1960s. In the 1970s the second generation was introduced, and it was the best selling import in the country. Last year, the now front-wheel drive Corolla became the best selling model in the world, with over 30 million sold. Toyota has released a new generation of the Corolla every four or five years, which has now lead up to this new tenth-generation 2009 Toyota Corolla. The new Corolla is slightly longer, lower and wider than the previous generation. It is available in five trims, base, LE, S, XLE, and XRS. Our Corolla XLE is powered by a 1.8 Liter 4 cylinder DOHC engine matted to an automatic 4-speed transmission. The starting price for the Corolla XLE is $17, 550. Our test vehicle is priced at $18,600, because it has the optional goodies including 6-disc CD changer and satellite radio.
