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 all-new Corolla is designed to appeal to customers seeking both a classic sedan configuration and striking, dynamic styling. To achieve this goal, the new Corolla has been engineered to widen its appeal across a broad customer base; it will further enhance its virtue of quality while adding a more distinctive design, high interior space and exiting driving pleasure.
